Roar is a song by Katy Perry about courage. It means that you overcome obstacles blocking your success. It’s about standing up for yourself when someone is putting you down. In the music video Katy Perry overcomes obstacles in the jungle. She stands up for herself by confronting a lion. She finds food to eat to survive. She takes a shower from an elephant’s trunk by the animal showering her. This song is inspirational to believe in your dreams to come true.
