Katy Perry comes out fighting
"Roar" single sneaked out early
If you've been on the edge of your seat for the next chapter in the Katy Perry saga, it's here. "Roar" was due to be released today but slipped out early over the weekend, so she rush-released it herself (Lady Gaga is dealing with leakage herself).

The upshot? It's laden with cliches, with "eye of the tiger" in the chorus, and the verses start with a string of them, from "bite my tongue" to "hold my breath," and the old canard "I stood for nothing, so I fell for anything."

Still, she manages to make it catchy, and given her split with Russell Brand and on-again romance with John Mayer, "Roar" sounds like a declaration of independence (oops...who's writing cliches now?) post-breakup.
You can hear it below. Warning: It's an "I Heart Radio" recording, so that annoying voice pops in from time to time reminding you of that.
Please, "leaked". Come on. All these types are so high on themselves that they cant see straight.
It wasn't leaked it was pushed out by Katy or the record company. I am not being critical of Katy Perry or the record company but stop trying to fool everyone into thinking she is so darn important and famous that someone would want to break into the recording studio vault and steal the song and "leak it" to the world. This is self-marketing 101.
Brave is talking about encouragement and comfort to another person.
Saying that "You'll get through it", "I've gone through that", and "I want you to be brave"
Roar talks about Independence towards herself saying
"I'm not gonna be pushed around" "I'll express myself as I wish"
It's not if they sound the same. They're both different in many ways.
They're both in many ways Different. They give a different story in each.
And they will both do some inspiring of their own.
Like very much, great beat, lyrics good. She sounds strong and powerful
