Katy Perry SuedKaty Perry Stole Black Horse 

Katy Perry
blatantly stole a song from a Christian hip-hop singer and then tarnished it with witchcraft, paganism and black magic ... at least that's the claim in a new lawsuit.

According to the suit -- obtained by TMZ -- Perry's hit song "Dark Horse" is a rip-off of an award-winning Christian gospel song called "Joyful Noise" ... that was released 5 years before Perry's track.

The suit was filed by an artist known as Flame -- along with other singers. They say Perry not only hijacked their religious music ... she also destroyed their reputation in the Christian music world ... because they're now associated with the anti-Christian witchcraft and imagery that appears in the "Dark Horse" music video.


They're suing for damages ... and want Perry to stop using any form of their music ... stat.

So we gotta ask ...

"Christian" music. Only thing more lame is children's music. Singing about make believe characters and made up bull$hit. I like music for grown ups, thank you.

They both suck, but it's not like the beat was original to begin with.

Well They Did Rip Off The Beat, By Using A Different Synth. But I'm Pretty Sure Katy Knew Nothing About It. If Anyone Should Be Getting Sued It Should Be The Producer, Not Katy.

It was almost like the scene from Twins where Divito met Arnold..... Blatant ripoff and part of the settlement should be the Christian Black Dude gets to shoot a load of his Jesus Jiz all over her Rack...., Case Closed
