Katy Perry Sued for Copyright Infringement


Katy Perry has been sued for alleged copyright infringement.

Christian rapper Flame claims the “Roar” hitmaker damaged the message of his song “Joyful Noise” when she sampled it for her track “Dark Horse” without his permission.

The lawsuit reads, “By any measure, the devoutly religious message of “Joyful Noise” has been irreparably tarnished by its association with the witchcraft, paganism, black magic, and Illuminati imagery evoked by the same music in “Dark Horse.”

“Indeed, the music video of “Dark Horse” generated widespread accusations of blasphemy and an online petition signed by more than 60,000 demanding removal of an offensive religious image from the video.”

Flame, real name Marcus Grey, is seeking damages and wants Perry to stop using the music immediately.
