Fans Accuse Demi Lovato of Ripping Off Katy Perry & Jessie J in 'Cool for the Summer'
By Antoinette Bueno
Does Demi Lovato's new single sound uncomfortably similar to Katy Perry's "I Kissed a Girl" and Jessie's J's "Domino"?
This is what plenty of people are saying about Demi's "Cool for the Summer," which leaked online Tuesday. While the sultry tune is undeniably catchy, the breathy vocals on the verse are giving some people major Katy vibes circa 2008. The subject matter -- a naughty fling with another woman with suggestive lyrics like, "It's okay/I'mma little curious too/Tell me if it's wrong/If it's right/I don't care ... Got a taste for the cherry/I just need to take a bite" -- further fuel the comparisons.
As Demi sings, "Take me down into your paradise," it also undeniably sounds a lot like when Jessie J sings, "Rock my world until the sunlight" in "Domino."
