Katy Perry VS Sara Bareilles, How to Use the Internet, & Top Things You Don't Want to Hear on the First Day of School

There's an instructional video from 1997 that shows kids how to use the internet. And it's HALF AN HOUR long.
They cover all the important stuff that defines your online experience these days. You know . . . news groups, chat lines, America Online.
Don't miss the kid's voice cracking at 2:42, or the awkward hi-five at 3:40.
It's already back to school time for many kids this week. So we thought it'd be a good time to give you the Top Things You Don't Want to Hear on the First Day of School.
Sorry, the only foreign language class with any seats left is, "Intro to Honey Boo Boo."
Hey, go huff your own glue!
Don't be alarmed, but your class president now has the right to listen in on all your cell phone calls.
Today's First Lady-approved lunch special will be raw kale!
Okay, Compton High School, please welcome your new lunch lady, Paula Deen!
KATY PERRY'S new song, "Roar", hit the Internet over the weekend . . . and since then, there's been a lot of talk on Twitter about it being a RIP-OFF of SARA BAREILLES' song, "Brave", which came out earlier this year.
Here’s Sara's "Brave" . . .
Of course, with all the TRULY INNOVATIVE songwriting that's happening these days, things like this come up all the time . . . but there might be something to this.
Back in May, Katy said she LOVED "Brave". She Tweeted a link to the song . . . and said, quote, "I heart you @SaraBareilles!"
Katy hasn't responded, and technically Sara hasn't either . . . although she did Tweet, quote, "All love, everybody. All love."
She sent that out on the day Katy's song leaked, while her fans were asking her about the songs' similarities.
Here’s Katy's "Roar” . . .
They do sound similar, particularly the piano . . . but it isn't a TOTAL rip-off…
...no more than The Red Hot Chili Peppers & Tom Petty (Dani California & Mary Jane’s Last Dance) or The Strokes and Tom Petty (Last Nite & American Girl).
My point is, be on the look out for Katy Perry’s upcoming rip off of Tom Petty.
