Did Katy Perry steal the idea for her video, “Rise”?
Some reports suggest that she did. Kevin Jonas Sr. tweeted about the clip, saying, “Love @katyperry new song but the video for #Rise is identical to @oliviasomerlyn #Parachute” According to Perez Hilton, a rep for Paul Gore — who directed “Rise,” said, “The filmmakers created a video for Katy Perry having never before seen the other video. Any similarity is pure coincidence.” The “Parachute” director even came forward and said, “Paul Gore is a revered director and I’m sure he wouldn’t knowingly copy anything. It’s just a parachute — there are lots of them in prop houses and I would chalk this up to coincidence.”
