Taylor Swift’s 1989’s Song ‘Shake It Off’ Lands In Controversy Over Stolen Lyrics From R&B Artist Jesse Graham’s Song
It seems that Taylor Swift, the highest paid composer in the world, is in trouble over the issue of stolen lyrics from R&B artist Jesse Braham aka Jesse Graham song titled “Haters Gone Hate” which was released in 2013. Braham blamed Swift for stealing his song’s lyrics for her last year’s released song for which she received a huge round of applause. Read On!
The artist named Jesse Graham has asked for credit and $42 million’s compensation for the use of phrase which was mainly designed by him for his song. He also claimed that Taylor Swift used his song’s phrase nearly 70 times in her hit single, which is definitely large in numbers. It was also revealed by IBT that not only Swift but CNN was also questioned by Graham for “New Day’s” title, a morning show of the channel.
A legal source responded to the comments of Graham on Swift and said, “Mr. Braham, who is representing himself, cannot claim copyright protection for the phrases ‘haters gone hater’ and ‘playas gone play. The Copyright Act does not protect short phrases and these phrases are not original to him,” revealed Perez Hilton.
As per information, “Shake It Off” was a joint co-operational work of Max Martin and Shellback, together with Taylor and is part of her “1989” album. Though, nothing has been arrived from the side of Swift but once she said that she has divided her life into sections like my choices, my actions, my words, my body, my style and my music.
When asked about all the things, which are going on at Taylor Swift– Jesse Graham corners, the spokes person from the lady’s side refused to comment. So, we cannot be sure about what is going to happen in future, who will win this war and what will be the final solution of this situation. Well, all the answers will come only after some time, till then, let us wish both the parties all the very best, may truth wins.
