3. Katy Perry is annoying

The climax of the video is Katy Perry vs. The 900-Pound Tiger Who Ate Her Boyfriend. She lures him into a cage by waving a stick at him, which probably isn't how people really catch tigers.

He walks up and growls at her and Katy Perry is like, "Bap, bap, bap, bap, bap, we need to talk about our relationship, bap, bap, bap," and then the tiger is like, "Jesus Christ, bro. Stop talking. I should not have eaten your boyfriend; I should've eaten myself. I should've chewed off and eaten my own body because that would have been less awful then this."

Even tigers don't wanna listen to Katy Perry.

Conclusions:

1) Katy Perry likes Sara Bareilles but not enough to not steal her music
2) Monkeys are smart
3) Tigers are smart

I enjoyed the blog. He did make some good points as to why the video was retarded, not so much of why the song isn't good though. I bought the CD, and did not like it. I only liked two songs on it (although I loved her prior 2 albums). Left feeling disappointed by the CD. Wish I could get my money back..it is that bad.

A) Awful article in general. See above comments from like-minded folk who have summed it up very well thus far. B) The perfect metaphor part, however, was funny. I lol'ed. C) Yes, I typed "lol'ed". D) I'm not a fan, but Firework is catchy as hell (and you may or may not find it and Peacock on my music player). This song, though... I have nothing nice to say so I won't say anything.

Based on the arguments presented here, shouldn't this article be titled "Why this video sucks" and not "Why this song sucks"?  I mean, your primary arguments all have to do with elements of the music video and a strange metaphor about your kid shoving a plastic bag in his ass.  There's plenty here to make fun of musically, so why the cop out?

agree... it's a horrrrible song and I was shocked it was even on the billboard top 10 for a while.

I can't believe so many people are getting so defensive about a stupid pop song/singer. Some tits need calming in here, pronto.

Can I have the 2 minutes back that I wasted reading this crap blog and the title should have read "Katy Perry's video for Roar sucks" because all the author did was complain about the video and it was by far well done

He also wrote this amazing piece of journalism.... http://blogs.laweekly.com/westcoastsound/2013/10/girls_i_dated.php ... Let me cut through this article to and explain why they all broke up with you... Because girls don't want to ride a recumbent bike everywhere. And having that cool iPhone tool that plugs into the phone and replicates a 1970's touchpad phone isn't cool either.

If you don't like Katy Perry, fine, but this article is completely worthless. Not funny at all.

What was the point of this whiny blog entry? I'm dumber now for having read it.

This article really rustled my jimmies. I think we can agree that Katy is a mediocre artist. That being said, the author of this post is what really sucks. This is just piss poor writing and a mindless rant that makes no actual arguments as to why the song isn't good. I'm also amused at the article's disclaimer about it being from an "award winning music critic" ... What award? The mindless dribble award? The "most uncared for opinion" award? C'mon RFT. At least get some classy guest contributors.

Let me cut through the article and give your opinion.... Katy Perry's Roar sucks cause it wasn't a hit for Arcade Fire or Mumford and sons.

""Roar" is basically that: a plastic bag wedged into Katy Perry's butt. That's a little thing called a perfect metaphor." LOLOLOLLOLOL.

wow, this is extremely dumb...and pointless. the writer is trying waaaaay too hard to be an edgy badass. Cursing doesn't make the article anymore interesting when you're not saying anything of substance to begin with...ya dig "bro"? is anybody else wondering why this person felt the need to write such a nonsensical, ridiculous piece of crap? katy perry is, indeed, a little annoying..but she's got nothing on this article. i mean, you called your child a jackass, only after admitting that he uses the f-bomb...so that's awesome. even though there are much more important things going on, i'm not one to dismiss the pleasure of reading good pop-culture material. i love smart ass critics, too. but seriously? reading this is a complete waste of time. much like writing this comment. sigh. but sometimes ya just gotta.

I can't stand Katy Perry's music. When Firework was really popular I lived in California where there are NO radio stations like the Point and it drove me nuts. Formulaic and boring.

Normally I do agree with you all, but not on this subject.

Unless this article is written as a sarcastic slap in the face mockery of people blog-bitching about famous people in an attempt to draw attention to themselves, then it is most certainly NOT well written OR funny.

I like the song and I like Katy Perry but this article is well done. Funny stuff!

So the RFT is bitter about Katy Perry...and you called your own son who sounds like he's probably 4 or 5 a jackass?? I think you're the jackass here.
