Hate to say I TOLD YOU SO

Cause I swear I really do have a soft spot for Brit Brit, buttttttt

remember when I wrote this post about how she was a copycat?  Well looks like the Bellamy Brothers agree, cause they're suing her plagiarizing ass:


Click here for the story.

Brit, I love you, but I hate plagiarists.  I've already accepted that you're never gonna actually write your own songs, but at least keep your songwriters in check.  Stealing ain't cool, especially when it comes to creative material!

p.s. I promise a post about my trip to NYC tomorrow with lots of pics!

Although I love her new album, one of my favorite songs is He About to Lose Me and it totally sounds like Adam Lambert's What Do You Want From Me.

I think today's songwriters are lame asses anyway...rarely is anything truly original.

Just as a writer wants to sell their writings, so do musicians...however, labels here something and see that it could make them money, so then they start buying and spitting out the same sounding stuff. It is all pretty sad.

Yeah those are too close--even the title is! There have been so many cases like this, and I don't understand how writers claim don't know what they are doing!

P.S. In response to the IPA comment you left (thank you by the way): there is no way I'm the IPA girl....I'm like you! I drink the Blue Moon, Harvest Wheat, Leinie's...I have a mild taste when it comes to beer. Sorry for the confusion--he's the IPA guy in our house :)

When I first heard that song on the radio I knew she didn't make it up herself, lol. The last thing Brit Brit needs is a lawsuit, but maybe this is a sign that she should have chosen a different single to debut her album! :)

ha!!! i'm totally not surprised. it's britney (bitch)...she has like zero musical talent. but her performance skills are top notch. i'll give her that.

i have a soft spot for her too but something is terribly off. i just watched her kimmel performance from last week and she wasn't the fabulous dancer i remember. she was slow and looked so underconfident that it made me sad. hope she is okay!

How does this actually work? Shouldn't the writers get sued? She had no clue - I'm sure. I need to buy her CD today lol...
