Sara Bareilles has a message for all those people who think Katy Perry‘s song “Roar” sounds way too much like her hit “Brave”: stop the drama. While Bareilles hears some “similarities” between the two singles, she told ABC News Radio that she and Perry are “on great terms and there’s no issue there.”
“Katy’s a friend of mine and we’ve known each other a really long time, so she even texted me about it and we went back and forth,” Bareilles said.
“The shame that I feel that’s happened is that it’s become a drama. It’s putting this negative spin on two artists that are choosing to share positive messages,” she added.
Bareilles pointed out, laughing, “If I’m not mad I don’t know why anybody else is upset. I’m like, ‘Relax, let’s just celebrate that we can be out there and encouraging people to, like, feel strong and empowered.’"
