Katy Perry's new single, "Roar," leaked online

Katy's purr-ey new single is a hit

It's not due out until tomorrow, but thanks to some online leaking, we get to hear Katy Perry's new single, "Roar," today.

Katy's purr-ey new single is a hitSomeone has to patch up the internet because it's just so leaky.

We just had Miley & Britney's song leak, Kanye's entire album leaked, even Beyoncé had a problem with a leaky track earlier this year.

But I'm not complaining because today, a day before the scheduled Aug. 12 release date, we get to hear some amazing new music from Katy Perry thanks to that leaky internet.

See Katy's teaser trailer for "Roar" >>

"Roar" has that poppy Katy Perry sound that will get stuck in your head. However, along with the upbeat tune, Katy shows her teeth a little in the lyrics.

"I used to bite my tongue and hold my breath,
Scared to rock the boat and make a mess...
I let you push me past the breaking point.
I stood for nothing, so I fell for everything.
You held me down but I got up,
Already brushing off the dust...
I am a champion,
And you're gonna hear me roar."

Are Katy and John Mayer back together? >>

Is it me, or does this sound like it's about her marriage to and divorce from Russell Brand? This sounds like a pretty public catfight is brewing. Mee-yow!

Russell Brand would "think of anyone else" when having sex with Katy >>

Listen to Katy's "Roar" below and let us know what you think in the comments.
