Did Demi Lovato Rip Off Katy Perry? Listen To The New Track

Demi Lovato bit back after Katy Perry and Jessi J fans accused the "Neon Lights" star of being a copycat.

"Cool for the Summer," Lovato's most recent release, proved to be divisive in the Twitter community. "Didn't know demi lovato turned into katy perry [sic]," read one tweet. "Demi Lovato’s new song is a gross hybrid of Domino by Jessie J & any given Katy Perry song," read another. When ET tweeted about the rift, the songstress decided to set the record straight through her own social media account.

"I think more than one female artist can kiss a girl and like it," Lovato added. Then — after her haters were sufficiently shut down — the pop star headed to the Gansevoort Park Avenue in New York, to perform her new single in a lavish poolside setting. After she finished the set, the singer hopped in the pool, fully clothed, to mingle with her fans. That's certainly one way to cool things down after a heated day.

As for whether or not the songs sound the same ... Well, we'll let you decide. Lovato's new tune is certainly reminiscent of a Katy Perry bi-curious track circa '08, as well as Jessi J's "Domino" to a degree. The again, in the Age of Autotune, what doesn't sounds similar?
