Katy Perry's Sensational New Single Soars Roars To The Top Of The Billboard Charts! Get Deets!

| Filed under: Music MinuteKaty PerryBusiness Blitz

katy perry champion of world roar

This is AH-Mazing!!!

If you haven't heard by now, Katy Perry's pop-tastically perfect new Prism single is ALL the rage!!!

We dare say, it's the song of the Summer!

We're not the only ones daring to say it, either. Roar already clawed it's way up toward the top of Billboard's Digital Songs chart and — get this — it has only been tracking for one day!!!

Radio DJs are BLOWN AWAY by the unprecedentedly positive reaction the track is garnering from listeners!

One veteran revealed:

"The Katy single is phenomenal… This is a great way to start off the fall season."

You can hold your Applause for Lady GaGa, too, because KatyKat's single is blowing her's away on all fronts!!

Another DJ admitted:

"…When it comes to social media, Perry’s Roar has garnered more positive response… I think, because of its pop appeal and texture, Roar will probably be embraced by more formats and will eventually be heralded as a bigger song than Applause."

We're soooo happy KP's wonderful song is doing as well as we knew it could!!!!

    is it just me or is Roar a copy paste version of Sara Bareilles - Brave??? honestly!

  2. Wow says – reply to this


    I've thought she's sooo vulgar since I watched the video of this animated gif.

  3. Jne says – reply to this


    Perez is such a bitter bitch it's so obvious that you want gaga to crash and burn…pathetic

  4. 4

    How come the link for itunes, take you to youtube, still getting her counts up perez, you are showing your true colors.

  5. CourtneySucks says – reply to this


    He'll be in New York soon if anyone wants to spit on him :)

  6. bnietzsche says – reply to this


    it actually does sound A LOT like sara bareilles - brave … and he's accusing gaga of stealing looks? at least she isn't stealing songs lol

  7. 7

    I honestly don't care for either Katy Perry or Lady Gaga, but this petty hatred toward Lady Gaga was getting too much to handle, so I listened to both songs. I'm sorry, but Lady Gaga's lyrics are so much more well written and her song is catchier overall. I feel like I've heard "Roar" twenty times before, whereas "Applause" seems new and fresh. Please stop this bias and be a true music lover and actually listen.

    John, look at this gif over here. This is the mother of your future children. This is the woman your children will have a hard time respecting. Just saying.

    You are really feeding off of the stan wars. You may claim to be past the bullying but you don't mind instigating fights among fans.
    I don't really get why people argue over who is better. Like, who cares? If you like it then why should it matter if some don't? But it happens, and you seem to love it.

  10. POSH says – reply to this


    Perez, it's ok that you're gay and everything but you need to stop being a bitch it's just so boring now.

  11. MB says – reply to this


    That GIF is crazy, in a bad way. Wow. TAKE YOUR FUCKING CAREER SERIOUSLY< AND MAYBE YOU WON'T SUCK SO HARD! That is fucking ridiculous.

    In real life, I get into arguments with so many guys that I hear actually praise KP in one way or another, usually it's sex appeal, and I have no idea what they see. I know what they see, tits on a bimbo, but exactly…… I'm one of those rare guys where she is not remotely my type of girl. I have no idea.

  12. C says – reply to this


    Can you get off Katy's dick, Perez? I mean seriously, it is getting pathetic how thirsty you are for attention to deflect any praise from Gaga, even though you probably secretly love Gaga's song.
    They are both good, how about you be a nice person like you claim to be and praise both artists instead of being a biased prick. Was that Gaga line in this story really necessary? Couldn't you have just been classy? Wait, this is you we are talking about. Probably the most classless person on the internet.
    Ps, since you started this Gaga hate campaign, you've lost fans on everything. Time to rethink your strategy.

  13. BitterPartyofOne says – reply to this


    I hope Sara Bareilles get paid royalties for it. I bet Perez doesn't even like the tune. Katy's just his default idol right now because she's in direct competition with his former idol on the charts. He would do the same thing if it were anyone else releasing a big single if it weren't Katy doing it. Sorry, but the song isn't THAT good.

  14. sm87 says – reply to this


    it might be more popular amongst 12 year old girls in middle school, but I'm pretty sure it's been established by maaaaany people that Applause is a lot better than Roar.

  15. 15

    i heard it on the radio yesterday love the chorus … lyrics could be more positive but it was ok i enjoyed it and katy is a hell of a lot more likeable than the dead corpse that was gaga

  16. 16

    gagas dead all that is left is a lank brown hair ugly girl on a piano

  17. Kathy says – reply to this


    Both songs are mediocre AT BEST! And you are the prime example of why great, intelligent, witty bloggers can't be taken seriously. You show absolutely zero objectivity in "your" writing (what you make your lackeys write). You're disgusting and transparent. I'm sad I believed you had become a better person. Self-improvement is one day at a time, sadly, you aren't even making an effort.

  18. Hayden says – reply to this


    Thanks Perez for the good news and don't listen to the ugly monsters and her ugly decaying queen

  19. mlyjn says – reply to this


    Meh. It's not bad, it's not great. I just hope this whole thing isn't Lady Gaga 2.0. When Perez was constantly reporting on her, I got Gaga fatigue and actually actively stopped listening to her music. I hope he treads more carefully this time with Katy.

  20. ll says – reply to this


    sorry but both songs dont deserve a number one spot. if katy wants to act innocent about the Brave shit and say she had no clue about Sara B.'s song, then she's either an absolute liar or an ignorant fuckin musician that doesn't do her own proper research and relies on her handlers to get all the blame instead. copycat and musical influence are two different terms, not one music critic has called out katy doing this, only the audience (us), either they dont wana be on her bad side or this is rigged up the ass. if roar gets massive success, sara better get some damn money out of this, its a blatant ripoff. gagas applause has those repetitive BTW-ish lyrics with a forgettable chorus line. its different but its not an attractive different. The Fame was completely different and for its time period, it was considered pretty original and had musical influences from bowie to queen, yet it didnt sound recycled. i dont get the same magnetic vibe that applause had so much hype for, i would envision a song like applause to have a different kind of melody rather than this.

  21. 21

    GO KATY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  22. 22

    Re: bnietzsche – LOL!!! "At least Gaga's not stealing songs"…Um…does Born This Way ring a bell?? Express Yourself? Alejandro ripped off Ace of Base and man, this is the one time Perry released a song that sounds similar to another song, but Perry probably had NO clue…Gaga did.

  23. 23

    Re: goodtasteishardtofind – Perry tweeted about the Brave song months back so she certainly knew about it. She has ripped off Sara and Gaga continues to rip off Madonna and numerous other artists her new song is a shitty 80s throwback with no originality whatsoever.

  24. 24

    This is the picture that should be call "raunchy." Katy Perry is a joke. Re: yeah – That's why they keep breaking up. He's having a hard time accepting that this could be the mother of his children.

  25. say says – reply to this


    Wow perez- Gaga dumps you as a friend and you are so BITTER…that is all you see, nothing you say about Gaga is fact…Katy may have sold better than Gaga's Applause, but Gaga's song is better….Just give it time…katy does not half the talent Gaga has..or the artistic vision or anything really…I love my girls in pop, but no comparison.

  26. sheila says – reply to this


    I'm pretty ignorant about pop music, but the only time I saw a music video of Katy she was shooting American flags out of her bra. She has fantastic boobs, but does she put them to work whenever she does a new album.

  27. 27

    its so funny how you perez were all over gagas ass a couple years ago. and now, all you post are negatives about her. do you think gaga or katy really give two shits who is the "bigger"? . these are two very successful women with loyal fanbases and now don't have to prove anything to anyone. just admit it though dear perez, somehow gaga pissed YOU off and now you are on this "vendetta"!!!

  28. CourtneySucks says – reply to this

  29. annieoo says – reply to this


    You are not a good person. You are insecure, shallow, disloyal & bitter. You are a poor example of a role model to a child. If I had to guess your age & sex I would say a 12 year old girl.

  30. tempe says – reply to this


    Perry's new single "Roar" hit digital retail at 12 AM today (Aug. 12), while Lady Gaga's "Applause" is scheduled to make a retail bow on Tuesday (13). The latter's arrival is six days before its original release date (Aug. 19).

    Liar Perez

  32. caleb demaggio says – reply to this


    perez you're a pathetic excuse of a human being. Not only are you terrible at what you do but you clearly make shit up and cant back anything up. You're desperate to see celebrities down. why? because you clearly want to have gaga's hair, katy perrys body, and rihannas ass? I feel sorry for you because you're clearly unhappy with your life. KEEP TALKING MAD SHIT, ITS STILL NOT GETTING YOU ANYWHERE PASSED YOUR OUTDATED BLOG. go get a life

  33. Lady GagaNews says – reply to this


    Last spring, we started noticing that Perez wasn’t posting anything about Mother Monster at all. This was extremely telling considering prior to that he’d post all day, every day about her. Let’s break it down.

    During the year of 2011, Perez was still constantly posting about our beloved, GaGa. Ending the year with a post about her New Year’s Concert saying, “Who better to ring in 2012 at New York City’s Times Square than Lady GaGa??”

  34. LadyGagaNews says – reply to this


    It was about this time that Perez’s TV show “All Access” started premiering in the US. In fact, the All Access episode with GaGa premierd on January 24th, 2012. Below is the post where he ’s talking all about it. So at this point, everything seems fine, right?

  35. LadyGagaNews says – reply to this

    On January 12th, 2012, in a posting about Madonna being a totes jerk saying GaGa sounds just like her, Perez said, “Personally, we love them BOTH!! Both songs. Both queens!”

    Then on February 28th, Perez announced that the CW had picked up “All Access” so he’s had to promote those episodes with her as well.

    On April 21st, he posted that it had been in discussion to have Azaelia Banks work with GaGa’s people. It’s also been rumoured she’ll be working with GaGa on ARTPOP. This has nothing to do with the feud. It’s just AMAZEBALLS NEWS!

  36. LadyGagaNews says – reply to this


    On April 25th, he posted the ratings for the GaGa “All Access” show were the highest ratings yet. Well Duh. Perez knew he needed her for those ratings so he’s still using her in the posts about it.

  37. LadyGagaNews says – reply to this


    Then it happens. Whatever IT is, happened. Because all posts about GaGa after that were just basic posts about top paid performers or whatever and she’s just a byline. That is, until July 24th when he posts a photo that GaGa posted on heaven her social networking site, LittleMonster.com with her new boyfriend Taylor. So what happened between April and July that there is only one post about GaGa? Better question, why in July does he start posting about her again? At this point, he starts posting passive posts just giving the news, the Fur war between her and Ke$sha, etc. Last post about GaGa was on 08/30/2012 just mentioning updates from GaGa’s lawyers about a lawsuit. And that’s it. Here we are in December, and Perez hasn’t said a word about her since a mention regarding Madonna being a totes jerk talking about her on Ellen on 10/29/2012.

  38. Bigmama says – reply to this


    Truly amusing how Brave was written and published in April, Katy a month later in May tweeted she loved Brave and linked the video. Few months later, you hear Katy trying to sing like Sara B, trying to get her tone and pitch to Sara B's also singing the song in B flat which Katy did in "Roar." Oh and let's not forget, the song and melody and rhythm is the same the difference is that it's been tinkered with.

    Also Katy ripped out the important message of the song which is to "Be brave, stand up, and be who you want to be." She ripped it out, put "Roar" on the title and just made it another "Pop song."

  39. Evanesims says – reply to this


    Burn in hell Perez…

  40. 40

    I'm slowly starting to get it: KP's new song is the absolute best song in the history of pop music so far and not the mediocre, boring and totally copied track I though it is.

  41. chillax62 says – reply to this


    ok those of you saying roar sounds like Sara Bareilles - Brave, get your facts right. They have nothing in common save the start of the song, because of their voices (almost similar). but PLEASE STOP! Roar is not comparable to Brave! clean your ears and listen to both songs same time before judging! pffff

  42. chillax62 says – reply to this


    Re: Bigmama – Ehm, brace was actually recorded in march. where did you get your sources from?

  43. chillax62 says – reply to this


    Re: chillax62 – sorry, i meant to say Roar was written in march! where did you get your facts from?

  44. Benny JK says – reply to this


    Katy Perry is perfect. Obviously, she is the champion.

  45. KC says – reply to this


    The same Billboard article praises GaGa's single as well, but of course Perez wants to cherry pick the favorable Katy Perry comments.

  46. Charles says – reply to this


    Perez, i don't believe you. I am sure as a gay man you have the taste for better music. If you genuinely think Katy Perry's Roar is good and interesting then i am just really disappointed with your taste.
    Lady Gaga's Applause might not be her best but the beat is sick and adictive.

    So being bitter and move on. Gaga is not your enemy.

  47. 47

    Re: LadyGagaNews – So what happened to his shitty show? I see no mention of it on the CW or anywhere else, for that matter. Is it another one of Mario's bombs?

  48. Fire says – reply to this


    Yeah, Katy Perry def ripped off Sara's song and she gets away with this b/c she's in that freaky devil worshipping clan, Katy signed her name in blood long time ago. I personally do not fancy Katy Perry, I don't give a rats ass how many men are attracted to her, you would have to join her Illuminati club if you really want to get to know her. She's the same candy ass woman who shows off her boobs with skimpy costumes. I mean it's boring, get over it. I really don't see who her song "Roar" could make it #1 in a lot of countries. Must be a lot of subliminal messages in that horrible song LOL.

  49. 49

    Way to go Katy! I don't think there's much doubt that Katy is the #1 pop star in the world nowadays … maybe #1 in the whole music industry in all the music genres. Hopefully, she will be a huge star for another decade or two like Madonna has been. She's dreamed of this since she was a little girl when she got her first acoustic guitar at age 13. Now she's made it to the very top.

    Katy has a pop/rock song from her first album called "Fingerprints" that's pretty good. I think this song shows that Katy has sometimes had the "eye of the tiger" like in the "Roar" song and she didn't realize it. I bet she wrote this song when she was about 21 years old when she thought that her dreams of making it big in the music business might not happen. She was dropped from TWO record labels before she finally hit it big with the "One of the Boys" album.

    Katy is living proof that you shouldn't give up. Persistence pays off. You gotta "go the extra mile". She sure has left her fingerprints on a lot of people all around the world. She's going to be remembered. No doubt about it.

  50. Barbara says – reply to this


    Wow!!! Look at those smooch prints on Katies butt from you kiss asses. Whey don't you break your back to kiss her butt some more . Bunch of followers and sheep. Read a book LMAO.

  51. 51

    I tell you what, John and Katy's new song "Who You Love" is really growing on me. I like all kinds of music. I like several of John's songs since I've been a fan of Eric Clapton and other bluesy rock artists over the years. I wouldn't be a bit surprised if this song becomes another top ten Billboard "Hot 100" hit for Katy and John … maybe even a #1.

    Check out this new unofficial video for the song that somebody did on YouTube. It's sure looking like Katy and John are getting serious. Type in "John Mayer - Katy Perry Who You Love Song Leak - HQ"

    Stop creating stan wars please? Both Gaga and Katy praised one another for their new singles. And they both don't want to make this a competition. And just so you know Gaga's most iconic song Bad Romance never got a #1 so… I hope both Applause and Roar chart well cause this two girls deserve it.

  54. luciano says – reply to this


    fuuny i just checked all the billboard charts and well what do you know no katy perry songs on them at all….. you are a lier its sad when you have to lie to try and belittle someone you are the reason gays get a bad name and rep cand you just die already you dont even need a kid worthless father!

  55. Andrés says – reply to this


    Please bitc*, this song it's the continued of her album ever released ”Katy Perry (A)” specifically the song IT'S OK TO BELIEVE in 2005! Isn't the Sara Bareille's song!

    I'm downloading on itunes right now! Love it!

    Re: someguy2621 – I AGREE

  58. 58

    I love Katy Pary and Roar is great! Gaga is too artificial. I am also pissed Gaga recorded The Greatest Thing with Cher then decided she (Gaga) did not like it. Cher loves The Greatest Thing and RedOne the producer loves it. Too bad Cher did this project with Gaga and not someone more normal like Katy Pary. Anyway good luck Katy and I hope you get another Number One hit!

  59. RS says – reply to this


    Re: chillax62 – The beat is the same. The beat-spacing is the same. The song's message is the same. Vocally they sound very similar. It was fine to compare Gaga's Born This Way to Express Yourself because it featured the same chord progression, but now that Katy Perry's song is essentially a rip-off of Bareilles Perez pretends not to hear those rumors and Gaga haters pretend it's some plot to de-throne Perry somehow.

    Has anyone taken into consideration that Perez gets paid to promote certain celebs? I mean come on people, its not rocket science. He has to make money somehow.

  63. Charles says – reply to this


    I've only heard "Roar" one time and had no desire to listen to it again. It just wasn't that interesting. On the other hand, I listened to "Applause" with the intent on hating it, and actually listened to it over and over again until I finally downloaded the song. "Roar" may be a bigger hit, but "Applause" is the better song. But isn't that how it always goes with pop music?

  64. Ab says – reply to this


    you stupid bitch, you're so lame and pathetic ’cause GaGa is perfect this is a copy of brave!

    Your sad attempt to throw shade at gaga is weak. Your attitude towards her is only showing your true BULLYING colors and is just affirming that Gaga was right to distance herself from you. You're a pretty shitty human being Perez, your kid doesn't stand a chance at growing up to be a decent human being as well.

  70. valkyriekee says – reply to this


    Katy Perry ROAR is a make you feel good, get on some platforms and dance the living room disco throwback that showcases Katy Perry's trained and talented technical voice. Lady GA Blah's Applause has a casio keyboard 80's start, heavy hours on the perfection of the vocals, bad changes,, and is lacking in an identity. Seriously they are not the same, safeway apples to Hawaiian pineapple really. GaBlah has had a few songs with good identity, but their styles were all so different. Katy Perry has had an album with multiple platinum songs, like every song for example. The album had an identity and…cohesion. I like Katy much more because she is the girl who's ass I would not kick at the end of the party.
