Complete History Of Katy Perry’s Alleged Idea Thievery

Katy Perry is one of the biggest Pop stars in the game with a terrible reputation for stealing ideas, concepts, styles–everything–from other artists without shame. And it’s mostly true based on the evidence, but then again, we live in a very borrow-y music era with very little originality so is she really wrong?

    Life-sized mechanical horses? What. A. Coincidence. Wow, life is crazy.

    Whoa, again? Wow. So crazy.

    One day, Katy woke up and wanted to be a Japanese woman…

    When she’s not stealing, she’s doing THIS (and offending everyone).

    Hmmm.

    Is all of this just one big extraordinary coincidence or is Katy a stone-cold culture vulture? You be the judge.
