Unknown Songwriter Accuses Lady Gaga of plagiarism

Lady Gaga is being threatened with a multimillion-dollar lawsuit by an unknown songwriter who claims the melody of her Oscar-winning song “Shallow” from her hit movie “A Star Is Born” was stolen from a song he released in 2012.

 

The nine-time Grammy-winning artist has been hit with a legal threat by songwriter Steve Ronsen who claims just a few notes — specifically, a three-note progression — in “Shallow” is based on his song “Almost,” which appears to have fewer than 300 streams on SoundCloud as of this writing. The three notes — G, A, B — correspond to the hook of “Shallow.”

 

Ronsen and his attorney Mark D. Shirian are asking for “millions and millions” of dollars in a settlement, we’re told, while threatening to go public with their claims, in a move that Gaga’s team is branding as a “brazen shakedown.”

 

Gaga, 33, has hired NYC power attorney Orin Snyder, who says the superstar will not back down.

 

Snyder said, “Mr. Ronsen and his lawyer are trying to make easy money off the back of a successful artist. It is shameful and wrong. I applaud Lady Gaga for having the courage and integrity to stand up on behalf of successful artists who find themselves on the receiving end of such [claims]. Should Mr. Shirian proceed with this case, Lady Gaga will fight it vigorously and will prevail.”

Some attention ***** wannabe is at it again discuss!

Apparently Gaga is still used as a click bait

I mean to be fair, they do sound similar in some parts but not enough to even call it a sample :laughga:

I'm also suing Gaga because in 2011 I sang a note and it was the same as a note from ARUTW. It's that easy folks, where's my million dollars

This is so dumb. I hope he intends to also sue (and be sued by) everyone who's used those three notes in succession. 

Edit: I can't believe I just listened to this dumb song. 301 streams for him
