It’s no secret that I haven’t warmed up to “Roar” as of yet, but that just changed thanks to a hot new remix by Jump Smokers. Sure, the chorus still drives me a little insane, but at least it’s more tolerable in this new version. The sped-up vocals with the new throbbing beat elevates Perry’s chart-topper into a hot club bangin’ anthem.

In a completely different direction, Perry goes all broody in a new track off Prism. She teams up with Juicy J on the urban-tinged “Dark Horse.” The beat during the verses is everything. All you booty-shaking twerkers will be itching to drop it like it’s hot during it. This should’ve been the lead cut given that her Prism era was supposed to be darker and more mature. “Roar” wasn’t that, but “Dark Horse” lives up to the promise. Give it a listen below.

Saturday Night Live is bringing in the big guns to open its 39th season. Tina Fey returns to her former stomping grounds to guest host the September 28 episode. This will mark her fourth time hosting the show. Joining her as the musical guest are Arcade Fire. Coincidentally enough, it’s also their fourth appearance on the show. Find out who else is heading to SNL in the coming weeks below.

After surviving a plane crash, Katy Perry finds herself stranded in the middle of the jungle. Forced to live off the land, the 28-year-singer finds the tiger within her and quickly adapts to her beautiful new surroundings. It’s Lost meets Destiny’s Child “Survivor” meets The Flintstones. It’s a bit over-the-top campy but it’s everything you’d expect from her.

While I’m not a fan of “Roar,” I have to give Perry credit. She goes all out with her latest visual. Whether you like her music or not, you can’t deny she creates entertaining music videos. More often than not, I find myself tuning in til the end of the clip. There’s usually a storyline, hot eye candy, and gorgeous visuals. Check out the clip below which was directed by Grady Hall and Mark Kudsi. It’s presented in Junglescope… whatever that means. Be sure to weigh in afterward watching it.

If you’ve been waiting with bated breath for the “Roar” music video, you’ll be happy to know it’s just around the corner. Katy Perry revealed she’ll be premiering the clip on Thursday September 5, which means it’ll probably leak roughly around Tuesday ;)

Along with the announcement, the 28-year-old singer unveiled a poster promoting it. She’s pictured channeling Tarzan and Mowgli as she swings on vines in the jungle. Speaking of jungle, her visual will be presented in junglescope… whatever that means.

If you haven’t checked out the video teaser, check it below. I hate to admit it, but I’m sorta looking forward to it. I’m living for the retro vibe of the poster. It’s very old school Hollywood.

There’s just no stopping him. Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” clocks in another week on top of the Billboard Hot 100. The monster hit rules for a 12th week joining an elite group of 14 songs to spend at least twelve weeks as No. 1. If “Lines” can keep its grasp on the pole position for four more weeks, it could tie Mariah Carey and Boyz II Mens’ epic duet, “One Sweet Day,” as the longest-running chart-topper.

Holding steady at No. 2 is “Roar” by Katy Perry. With “Lines” slowly eroding in airplay, Perry could unseat him in the coming weeks. On the flip side, Lady Gaga’s “Applause” rises from 6-4 on the strength of the accompanying music video. Streaming on YouTube, Vevo and other online sites now factor with chart placement. Sandwiched in between the two ladies is Thicke’s VMAs duet partner Miley Cyrus with her hit, “We Can’t Stop.”

When a short teaser of Katy Perry’s Killer Queen fragrance ad first hit online, allegations of plagiarizism quickly surfaced. Many of Beyonce’s loyal fans thought it was a blatant ripoff of Bey’s Mrs. Carter World Tour video announcement. With their similar period royal vibe, I could see their arguments. It didn’t help that both visuals were directed by Jonas Akerlund. Now that the full-length commercial has debuted, Perry’s clip doesn’t seem like an outright copycat. At least to me, it doesn’t.

The 30-second TV ad begins with the 28-year-old “Roar” singer channeling Marie Antoinette. She quickly breaks out of the period costume and makes it distinctly hers by cutting the gown and tearing off her white pouf. In other words, slutting it up ;) She ends the clip by kicking down the throne and sexily poses on it. Check out the clip below and weigh in afterward if you still think it’s copying Bey’s vid or not.

John Mayer & Katy Perry Duet On Gentle Ballad

In: Donovan, Music

John Mayer and Katy Perry might not always romantically work well together, but in the recording studio, they make beautiful music with each other. The two sound fantastic on their duet “Who You Love” featured on Mayer’s new album Paradise Valley.

Without her typical glossy production, Perry’s restraint vocals on the track are quite sweet. On his part, Mayer’s songwriting prowess almost makes me forget about his real-life douchey persona. Almost being the operative word. That being said, the two harmonize quite beautifully on the gentle ballad. Definitely a winner and should do well on AC and country radio. The latter due to the song’s surprising twang factor. Give it a listen below.

Just days after “Roar” leaked online, plagiarism allegations have already surfaced. Critics of Katy Perry’s latest accuse it of sounding very similar to Sara Bareille’s “Brave.” From the beat, to the vocal and instrumental arrangements, and the hook, the two tracks sound too identical for Bareilles’ fans.

Whether intentional or just coincidental, Bareilles doesn’t seem bothered by the supposed plagiarism. She squashed any ill feelings by tweeting her followers over the weekend with, “All love, everybody. All love.” Personally, I can hear the similarity in the beat, but that happens quite often nowadays.

Onto other news. Perry just released a too-cute lyric video for “Roar.” It begins with a woman (probably Katy) picking up a phone and then proceeds to text friends. Instead of gossip, the conversation entails texting the song lyrics, substituting some words for Emojis. She maybe out of her Teenage Dream days, but she’s still a teen at heart with this clip. Check out the lyric video below, along with Bareilles “Brave” clip. Weigh in below if you think Katy plagiarized Sara afterward.
