        waits on GAGA to block this basic b**** from number one’

        #NOBASICZONE

    • Lovebird (Roar – PRISM – 10.22.13)) August 10, 2013

      It is amazing and sounds nothing like Sarah nobody.

  3. POP ROYALTY (F*** Yeah Rihanna) August 10, 2013

    it’s OK.

    A solid 2/5 .

    We are not in 2010 anymore dear katy.

  4. Jessica August 10, 2013

    • POP ROYALTY (F*** Yeah Rihanna) August 10, 2013

      I knew i heard this Beat Before……….. Thanks for the input.

      • FAF August 10, 2013

        I love sara 😀

      • FRESH NAVY August 10, 2013

        SUE SARAH SUE THIS B****!

        Be BRAVE!

    • Lovebird (Roar – PRISM – 10.22.13)) August 10, 2013

      Sounds NOTHING like it, you tried though.

      • #Beautiful August 10, 2013

        Your’re death honey! LOL… Nothing about Roar is special! #Sorry!

  5. Slayty Perry (Roar) August 10, 2013

    F****** Slay!!!

    5/5

    Future #1 single 😉

    • LittleScheisse August 10, 2013

      NOTTTT!!!! LMAO! Hot Ass Mess. Sounds like 2010, but when has Katy ever been in with the time?

      • Slayty Perry (Roar) August 10, 2013

        Are we acting like Plagiarize This Way wasn’t dated trash?

      • POP ROYALTY (F*** Yeah Rihanna) August 10, 2013

        it was a #1 Though, b****, this s*** will do as good as “part of me” hopefully.

      • Slayty Perry (Roar) August 10, 2013

        Part of Me was #1 too and went 2x platinum. Next

      • Lovebird (Roar – PRISM – 10.22.13)) August 10, 2013

        From a Caca stan though…..and Burqa is supposed to be a smash when it is generic noise Caca is trying to pass on as music. Have all the seats Caca couldn’t fill in those empty stadiums in South America.

    • Heavy Metal Lover August 10, 2013

      LOL

    • Toto August 10, 2013

      Below basic boring trash, just like Katy

  6. miao August 10, 2013

    This is that new dark sound? Corporate basic radio crap!

  7. LittleScheisse August 10, 2013

    Exactly what I expected.. Like I said over and over again… NEXT!

    • FRESH NAVY August 10, 2013

      its horrid.. its the worst pop single ever.

      she totally ripped of sarah .

      as much as sam says rihanna is untalented… at least she is inovative with every lead single she releases.

      this is BASIC

    • Lovebird (Roar – PRISM – 10.22.13)) August 10, 2013

      Again, from a Caca stan though?? I will not. At least Katy Perry is original,

      http://youtu.be/Yy-D1Iwr7Gw

  8. Heavy Metal Lover August 10, 2013

    Hahaha. Pathetic like I thought. The same childish Nick JR s***. All those teasers like it was going to be some groundbreaking s***.

    • Lovebird (Roar – PRISM – 10.22.13)) August 10, 2013

      Right, from someone who likes senseless guitar riffs and drug addicted demon possessed basic singers shouting in a mic.

      You’re supposed to be the authority on music when you love the most senseless genre of music to ever hit the scene. Have several seats.

      • C’MON U CRAZY KIDS August 11, 2013

        You ummm, tried it, but “Heavy Metal Lover” is a Gaga song……

  9. Daniel Teflon August 10, 2013

    Just not a Fan of Yelly Perry~ she’s just a damn yeller & it’s ANNOYING

  10. Britney Disappear August 10, 2013

    SO SO !

  11. Alex August 10, 2013

    It’s quite a good pop song. I just hate the part where she says ‘ROAR’. She takes it a key too high for me. It’s a basic song but generally, it’s a thumbs up 🙂

    • POP ROYALTY (F*** Yeah Rihanna) August 10, 2013

      your Lead Single should not be THIS BASIC though…..

      • Alex August 10, 2013

        Well a lead single is supposed to give audiences an insight into the sound of the album; it’s supposed to represent the sound of the album. If her album sounds like this…I will not be buying :/ Nice song though…

      • POP ROYALTY (F*** Yeah Rihanna) August 10, 2013

        @Alex :

        It is OK.

        But Maaaaan, This is a F*****’ lead single, you should do better than that when you put out a Lead single.

        The music video will save this s*** a la “single ladies” i know.

  12. Gopit August 10, 2013

    Not disappointing tbh

  13. stella August 10, 2013

    Lady GaGa – Pop Culture *snippet leak*

    [img]https://soundcloud.com/xela/popculture[/img]

    • POP ROYALTY (F*** Yeah Rihanna) August 10, 2013

      Exactly.

      • stella August 10, 2013

        Tbh sounds like Katy’s Peacock. 😀

    • FRESH NAVY August 10, 2013

      stella guuurl your’e on it!!!

      SAM you NEED to hire this girl

      swift as f***.

  14. Love Life August 10, 2013

    Basic. This is the person thats supposed to snatch Gagas wig? *Laughs*

    • Lovebird (Roar – PRISM – 10.22.13)) August 10, 2013

      Honey, she already snatched and dusted that wig and she’s using it to dust off her million dollar penthouse suite.

  15. Fierce & all August 10, 2013

    The monsters bout to go in kiii

  16. Asbeenish August 10, 2013

    Yeah roar sounds like the roar of a cow being slaughtered for its meat. Basic. #NEXT

    • Lovebird (Roar – PRISM – 10.22.13)) August 10, 2013

      It sounds like it’s heading straight to #1 and you’ll deal.

      • Asbeenish August 10, 2013

        Gurl bye, this generic s*** will flop. Stay pressed kopy perry

  17. FRESH NAVY August 10, 2013

    This ROAR single is the worst single katy ever released and any katy cat that think this is good is delusional as f***!!!!

    i was looking forward to katy trumoing GAGme new single but GaGa will have the last laugh apparently… because this is bad

    maybe katy will slay with the second single.

    no time for this TD reject.

    GENERIC.BASIC.

    • Lovebird (Roar – PRISM – 10.22.13)) August 10, 2013

      But those stacks of CIARA CDs at Target though, is no one buying the album? How is it that Ciara is taking up the whole rack, filled and freshly minted, in crisp condition? I want to know.

      • Cici Slaaaays August 10, 2013

        B**** shut yo flip flopping ass up lovebird i knew you were a fake ass b**** your out the squad now f**!!

      • Lovebird (Roar – PRISM – 10.22.13)) August 10, 2013

        You are the one who forces me to go in on Ciara by talking a lot of s***. Stop talking s*** and I won’t have to shade Ciara.

  20. Molly August 10, 2013

    Ears bleeding

  21. xedos August 10, 2013

    not lead single material

  22. JJFan1814 August 10, 2013

    I really like this. The drums of the production, not as generic as California Girls was.

    Anyways, radio is going to eat this up. This will def be #1…

    I just don’t like that it has the same chords, similar beat, melody, and theme as Sara Bareilles’ Brave.

    It’s Born This Way to Express Yourself.

    Chile…

    I’m glad Queen Rih doesn’t do s*** like this.

    But 4/5 for me. 🙂

    • POP ROYALTY (F*** Yeah Rihanna) August 10, 2013

      Rihanna would never do that to her fans, her Lead singles ” at least” are always on point, since “Pon de replay” .

      This s*** is basic, don’t fool yourself.

      • FRESH NAVY August 10, 2013

        had Rihanna released this as a lead single…

        SAM would have slated her with an array of convoluted BS

        saying its bad and blahh blahs

        this is a horrible song. if i was SARAH i would sue its a clear rip off

        SHAMEFUL

        i actually love katy and was hoping she’d snatch gaga but i had high hopes i guess

      • POP ROYALTY (F*** Yeah Rihanna) August 10, 2013

        I Like Katy Too, but this B**** is not Even interesting this Era, also shady.

  23. Rosie August 10, 2013

    2010 mess, as I expected. The GP is not here for Dr. Puke/Bonnie McKii psuedo-EDM/dance-pop anymore, hence why American Girl is flopping to hell and back and Lana is getting ready to smash (even with a remix, but the remix is ACTUAL EDM which the GP still enjoys).
    It sounds like a Nickelodeon theme song. I cannot and will not.

  24. stella August 10, 2013

    So, Diamonds by Rihanna, Roar by Katy or Burqa by Lady GaGa?

    • FRESH NAVY August 10, 2013

      diamonds is clealry the better single

      in terms of inspiration melodically and its timeless.

      then of course GaGa shes good too

      katy suxxxks

    • POP ROYALTY (F*** Yeah Rihanna) August 10, 2013

      ofc ‘Diamonds’ , “burqa” is over-produced and Controversial Still not a lead single While “Roar” is kind of disappointing.

      DIAMONDS wins by default.

    • Fierce & all August 10, 2013

      I can see gaga making a crazy ass video to Burqa.
      I love Diamonds tho.

  25. TeamBreezy August 10, 2013

    Cute Catchy and Radio-Friendly

    Good luck Katy

  26. Ke$has Crazy Kid August 10, 2013

    Told yall yesterday this would sound like some sara burriles type of s*** but even worst she tried and failed bring on Gaga already.

    • Rosie August 10, 2013

      This reminds me of when everyone thought your fave was going to smash hard worldwide when Die Young was out but since that was dropped from radio after the school shooting/her first week sales came in it has been a Ciara mess.

    • Lovebird (Roar – PRISM – 10.22.13)) August 10, 2013

      And yet Warrior ONLY sold 200K to date. I don’t think you’re in any position to talk about Katy Perry when your fav is drinking urine to sell 1,000 copies that week.

      Have several seats.

  27. tabloid monsta August 10, 2013

    MY Gosh this is Brave by sarah Bareilles…COPYCAT PERRY..She used to copy Gaga but now…. 😀 KIIII

  28. Beyawnce August 10, 2013

    Nothing new again , All the promo and the song is basic , the little kids will love this.

  29. FAF August 10, 2013

    The chorus is good & anthemic so it will go top ten for sure I can see top 5 I doubt it’ll be #1, though…

  30. Rosie August 10, 2013

    What’s even funnier is that the snip it’s made it look like she’s so mature, she’s past that Nick Jr. b*******, when this song sounds like a Local Dream B-side. This will do great on iTunes first week then will plummet, just like that One Direction song did.

    • Asbeenish August 10, 2013

      Best song ever?

      • Rosie August 10, 2013

        If you’re talking about the 1D song yeah. It debuted @ #2 then dropped out of the top 10 the next week.

  31. Rosie August 10, 2013

    And it will be like the Jason Derulo single performance-wise. The Other Side did excellent on radio but had terrible sales. I think it barely went gold.

  32. bow down August 10, 2013

    Ewwwwww!!!! Corny Ass F***! #Next

  33. stella August 10, 2013

    For Rihanna stans, ha impact 😀

    • POP ROYALTY (F*** Yeah Rihanna) August 10, 2013

      We know, dear, we Know. 😉

      she let the other girls play with each other on the charts while she enjoy her vacation playing football with Rajad.

  34. APPLAUSE GAGA August 10, 2013

    All the hypes, teasers for this generic ass song? is that her definition of going dark and more mature? oh i see she went on youtube for some inspiration, now sarah must be like WTF???
    Be BRAVE QUEEN SARAH. SUE THAT COPYKAT !!!

    • stella August 10, 2013

      Let’s not act like Born This Way wasn’t Express Yourself rip off. No one is original in music industry.

      • APPLAUSE GAGA August 10, 2013

        No it wasn’t but keep trying tho….:D

  35. POP ROYALTY (F*** Yeah Rihanna) August 10, 2013

    who needs a “celebrity saving” now, b**** ?

    😆

    *Plays diamonds*

    • FRESH NAVY August 10, 2013

      omfg read my mind

      she needs to save her CAREER

      and not worry about the queen

      BILLBOARDS just crowned the queen the queen of the Hot100

      the f****** IMPACT AND SLAYAGE

      • POP ROYALTY (F*** Yeah Rihanna) August 10, 2013

        Robyn will save this H** though, I know , Rihanna is loyal.

        Rihanna has to worry about nothing, she’s superior to the other girls no matter what they say.

    • Slayty Perry (Roar) August 10, 2013

      Sit your flip flop ass down. Lmao, acting like this won’t slay

      • Ciara4ever August 10, 2013

        Agreed hes such a flip flopper

    • LTM August 10, 2013

      Weren’t you a fan three days ago? You’re so fake I can’t. I remember when YeaBey and IStann4Gaga use to drag your flip flop ass. I see why.

      • Lovebird (Roar – PRISM – 10.22.13)) August 10, 2013

        I know right, he’s a FLIP FLOPPING b**** and a bully. I do not take him seriously anymore.

    • Ciara is everything August 10, 2013

      LMAO NO ONE F**** WITH YOU FAKE F** I’M GLAD PEOPLE ARE SEEING YOU FOR THE FAKE H** THAT YOU REALLY ARE!!!!

  36. jada fire stan August 10, 2013

    Well this is what happens when you’re trying too hard. She desperately wants to score a number 1, she just jumped on that demo and changed a few words to get some writing credits

    • LTM August 10, 2013

      Katy is always the lead songwriter on her songs but thanks for trying.

    • Lovebird (Roar – PRISM – 10.22.13)) August 10, 2013

      LMAO and who the hell is Jada Fire??? Are you seriously coming for KATY PERRY when you stan for some unknown? I will not.

      • Fierce & all August 10, 2013

        She’s a p*** star! Kiii

  37. Asbeenish August 10, 2013

    Shes sampled m.I.a – paper planes aswell

  38. Rosie August 10, 2013

    Still screaming. This s*** makes Diamonds sound like the Beatles.

    • bow down August 10, 2013

      sadly true

    • stella August 10, 2013

      I must admit I like this Lana’s song. It’s great.

      • Rosie August 10, 2013

        Yes! The best bonus track.

      • Ciara4ever August 10, 2013

        That b**** Lana is so basic

      • Cici Slaaaays August 10, 2013

        Omfg her music is so boring!!!!!!!!

      • Rosie August 10, 2013

        But people seem to be liking Lana’s “boring” ass. Her album is outselling’s Cedric’s weekly already. Poor tranny won’t even catch up to Born To Die’s US sales worldwide.

  39. CSQUAD August 10, 2013

    *plays Basic Instinct*

    IM OUT…..

    • Cici Slaaaays August 10, 2013

      Yaaaaas

  40. tittyshaker69 August 10, 2013

    MMMMM….. No.

  41. Bey snatch August 10, 2013

    why ain’t i surprised that this song is so generic?
    where is king B when u need her?

    • Lovebird (Roar – PRISM – 10.22.13)) August 10, 2013

      And yet where’s Beyonce’s album or single? I don’t see it? Is she still in hiding, even after recording 100,000 songs according to Jay Z?

      She still doesn’t know which direction to take, according to Ne-Yo even after recording 100,000 songs?? Have several.

  42. UmOk August 10, 2013

    I can give a pass to songs today that sample other songs from the early 00’s, 90’s, 80’s, 70’s, etc. But this is not a sample, this is a total rip off. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a fan of Katy n whatnot, but this is like part 2 of Sara’s “Brave” song. I thought a comeback was suppose to bring something fresh, new, exciting and original. Dr. Luke disappoints me for the first time as a producer. So with that being said…sadly, this will be a hit…Katy…Yikes!

    • Rosie August 10, 2013

      Dr. Puke disappointed you for the first time? He’s been the definition of safe, generic, and basic for the longest. The GP wants fresh and “organic,” that’s why he’s barely making a dent on the charts now.
      His best and only well produced single since about 2010 is Primadonna.

  43. Cici Slaaaays August 10, 2013

    These artist need to stop hyping up basic b*******

    • Lovebird (Roar – PRISM – 10.22.13)) August 10, 2013

      Like Ciara did?

  44. Casual August 10, 2013

    Pretty much exactly what I expected.

  45. Kimbella August 10, 2013

    This is tragic its like Rihanna gets all the good songs.

  46. HOTSTUFF August 10, 2013

    i’m a little disappointed but this just shows that when it comes to versatility RIHANNA cannot be touch : From pon de replay to sos to umbrella to russian roulette to only girl to we found love to diamonds…..She’s an incredible vocalist and i predict that she will have one of the biggest music career in the world cause she can sing anything, any trend …

    im still looking forward to katy’s new album…

    • JOHNVIDAL August 10, 2013

      Could that be cos Rihanna doesn´t songwrite AT ALL? and the rest have some type of own sound?.
      Incredible vocalist who??????? lol
      Anyway this single is trash so don´t think I´m defending Katy Perry.

  47. Kisses for Kelly August 10, 2013

    Very disappointed..,just like I was when I seen Ciaras first week sales for basic instinct

    • Fierce & all August 10, 2013

      Yassss

      Yassssss, finally an honest opinion.

      • IM A FREE B*TCH August 11, 2013

        everybody’s opinion is honest. just because you like this, it doesnt make it anymore honest than rest

  49. Ciara4ever August 10, 2013

    Pop royalty is such a flip flopper.. one min you support katy then hate gaga & now it the opposite h** you pathetic.

    • cake like lady gaga August 10, 2013

      IKR? I can’t stand this bipolar arab

    • Lovebird (Roar – PRISM – 10.22.13)) August 10, 2013

      He is bipolar honey, he is a flip flopping b**** and a bully.

  50. FAF August 10, 2013

    Why is Katy thread turning into Rihanna ass lick post ? 😆 let that h** be on her break and binge in peace 😆

  51. RICHIE_RICH August 10, 2013

    it’s ok I guess

  52. Lovebird (Roar – PRISM – 10.22.13)) August 10, 2013

    YASSSSSSSSSSSS THIS SLAYSSSSSSSSS

    TOTAL SMASH

    #1 HIT

    YASSSS KATY PERRY YASSSSS

    • Fierce & all August 10, 2013

      Ur fake bandwagoning makes me puke.

    • Fierce & all August 10, 2013

      And u have a childish taste in music.

  53. Calling All hearts August 10, 2013

    A basic b**** anthem… #Next

  54. Lovebird (Roar – PRISM – 10.22.13)) August 10, 2013

    I see the girls are mad, have your favs glued on their wigs yet? This is heading straight to #1, total smash.

  55. LTM August 10, 2013

    Honestly, I love it. This is a step up from the “California Gurls” days. I see where people are getting the Brave comparisons from but Katy made it her own and made it a power ballad. I love the way she borderline screams the Roar parts. She’s never been one to play it safe.

  56. Baby Blanco August 10, 2013

    Sara needs to sue this b**** asap.

  57. tits mcgee August 10, 2013

    it alright. nothing ground breaking, but decent catchy pop.

  58. RICHIE_RICH August 10, 2013

    As if her sold out world tour wasn’t enough to make her count her blessings, today has brought with it more good news for Beyonce. News, that literally sees her smell the sweet scent that is success.

    For, three years after its release, the performer’s ‘Heat‘ fragrance collection have sold enough units worldwide to be named the highest selling celebrity fragrance, outperforming each and every one of its competitors both home and away.

    yass mother ROAR

    • tits mcgee August 10, 2013

      is it the best selling celeb fragrance of all time or this year? I would think the best selling of all time would be Liz Taylor’s “diamonds” and “passion”.

      • RICHIE_RICH August 10, 2013

        From my understanding best selling of all time.

    • tits mcgee August 10, 2013

      I just looked it up. It is the biggest seller of all time! Damn! Bey did that! #amazing

  59. Lovebird (Roar – PRISM – 10.22.13)) August 10, 2013

    LMAO The girls are scared, hear Katy ROAR!!!!!

  60. CzarM August 10, 2013

    “Blurred Lines” didn’t even twitch…

  61. B. Hill August 10, 2013

    It’s a TOTAL plagiarism of Sara Bareilles Brave, but Brave is the better song.

    Brave is 10x better than this. Better lyrics, better production, better beat, better singing. Katy’s carbon copy is straight b*******!

  63. Adam Monster August 10, 2013

    Complete rip-off of Sara Bareilles’s Brave!

  64. Avi August 10, 2013

    More like “Snore”.

    Disappointed! This is Firework with a twist! It’s been since ’08 since I’ve heard ‘I Kissed a Girl’ and I still don’t know who Katy is as an artist!

    Damn!!! Wasn´t she going for a more mature sound? And darker? This just shows how fake these basic b****** are. Not that we expected a real improvement… but damn lol Katy you are like 30 darling!

  70. Your fave is a FLOP August 10, 2013

    Katy, Im dissappointed. Wheres the mature sound? This is bubblegum pop. You are NOT in the Teenage Dream era anymore.

  71. jonnyjkell August 10, 2013

    OMFG IT’S AMAZING! I think Katy is gonna win over Gaga to be honest!

  72. JER August 10, 2013

    It sounds…. familiar.

  73. MusicLover August 10, 2013

    i think the song is ok. There is nothing bad about the song. I think most of you guys are on crack who doesn’t like this song.
