    They both suck. Happy now? Hell, even Miley Cyrus has more credibility, and she's a total dumpster fire.

    Rip offs do happen, but there is also another thing where artists who are friends within the same genre tend to act like colleagues do in other professions; often time writing sings in response to each other while putting their own spin and adding a touch of their flavor to it. That's what people used to do before sampling came along. It used to be far worse to flat out steal a sample of another artist's song and make money off it rather than the ping-pong of global social dynamics. anyway, butt-fuk it.

    That Is Todays Generations Way Of Justifying Ripping Someone Off. Simply Because Artists Do That Today Doesnt Mean Thats A Good Thing


    Her Obama loving ass is an airhead! There is nothing between her ears. Just look I'm her eyes- nothing but space!


    Personally, I love Both!


    I like Sara s much Better


    If I were Katy Perry, I wouldn't want to have these compared side-by-side. Yeah, she's the bigger star, and it's a good song... I like it, definitely gets me moving, but Sara's "Brave" is better, especially lyrically. If it's a rip-off, I think it would only help "Brave" be heard even more, so fine by me. Sara Bareilles is great.


    It is so unfair and disgraced that for some one who is not that popular yet the song tune was stolen by the more famous artiest. Well if you are as good as you can be. You definitely do not need to do that. Such ashamed.


    I noticed a similarity between the two as soon as I heard Roar. But I'm sure this will be a non issue. And that Katy and Sara will make a deal behind closed doors, unbeknownst to the rest of us. ;-)
