Katy Perry has numerous hit songs to her name. Recently, Katy came out victorious from a lawsuit which alleged she plagiarized her song, Dark Horse. The rapper Flame claimed that her single plagiarized an eight-note ostinato from his 2009 song Joyful Noise, but a judge disagreed. It appears, following her legal victory, Perry was in a major celebratory mood.
The singer took the stage at her Play Las Vegas residency show on Friday night. She had a strongly-worded message to share in the process. She shouted at the audience, ‘So just be sure…before you take me to court, ’cause I’m a Scorpio, b***h!’
In the video, posted by a fan on Twitter, the pop star can be seen swaying back and forth on a giant red horse. She was also wearing an elaborate red and white dress.
As we reported, a federal appeals court said on Thursday that Katy and her team are not liable to a hip-hop artist who claimed they copied her No. 1 hit Dark Horse from his Christian rap song. This obviously isn’t the way that the Christian rapper wanted things to turn out.
The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said Flame, whose given name is Marcus Gray, did not deserve damages for copyright infringement over a musical pattern which he alleged Perry borrowed from his song Joyful Noise. The decision was unanimous, 3-0 for Perry.
