4. MUSIC: Katy Perry, “Roar”
Our nasty culture has already knocked Katy Perry's new "Roar" single as derivative of Sara Bareilles, but who cares — it's a catchy shot of positivity (think "Firework" II). The song has an adorable lyric video, with the words rendered mostly through emoticons and snapshots of a typical Katy day. "Roar" is the lead single off the pop star's fourth album, Prism, due in October.
