'Great job copying Broods': Katy Perry comes under fire for 'ripping off' Kiwi band

Fans of Kiwi band Broods are attacking Katy Perry's new music video, claiming she's "ripped off" the Nelson-born duo's visuals from their latest album. 

Perry posted a short video for her single 'Small Talk', which sees her pose in front of a retro-style curtain and a pair of lips made out of fabric. 

The comments section has been flooded with references to Broods' Don't Feed The Pop Monster album cover, which features Caleb and Georgia Nott in front of a very similar backdrop. 

"Great job copying Broods! A+ for originality," one fan wrote. 

"Have you heard of Broods? Looks like it," said another. 

"Maybe try not ripping off @broodsmusic," read one of the many comments tagging the band in a bid to alert them to the video. 

Last month, Perry lost a five-year-old copyright case over her hit song 'Dark Horse'. The 34-year-old pop superstar will be forced to pay damages to Christian rapper Flame, after a jury found she had plagiarised his song 'Joyful Noise'. 

Don't Feed The Pop Monster was released by the brother-sister partnership of Broods earlier this year. Newshub has contacted to Broods' management for comment. 

In 2018, Broods supported Taylor Swift and performed 'Shake It Off' with her during the Australian and New Zealand legs of her Reputation tour. 

Swift and Perry recently mended their relationship after an infamous feud dating back to 2011.  

Perry has also come under fire for refusing to comment after being accused of sexual misconduct by both a former music video co-star and a Georgian TV host. 

Alongside the comments referencing Broods, angry fans are urging Perry to make a statement, highlighting her previous support of the #MeToo movement.
