Madonna To Be Sued By Brazilian Producer Who Claims She Jacked His Song!

| Filed under: MadonnaMusic MinuteLegal Matters

We hear it … but it's still a streeeeetch!

Ever heard of a producer named Joao Brasil? He hails from Brazil and he's behind the hit L.O.V.E. Bananas. You may have never heard of the song either, but you're about to, and as soon as you do, we have a feeling you're mind tools are going to recognize it as something else:

Madonna's new single!

Joao is claiming that Madonna's team stole some of his lyrics and beats for Madonna's new track. But while his legal team is looking to sue, it sounds more like Joao is looking for some recognition from the Queen herself more than anything else. In a released statement, he explained:

"I still don't understand what happened. I'm a huge fan of hers. If it's plagiarism, then even better. She is always at the cutting edge of music, so it's a good sign about what I do. It's in their hands, they're looking at how to proceed and what they can do. But personally I don't want to do anything. The last thing I need in my life is a fight with Madonna."

Uh, yeah! Having Madonna on your bad side? No bueno! Unless your Piers Morgan, whose making a career out of the feud. But's that a separte issue.

    Retard, drag out the "r" or the "t", not the "e". It sounds like streech, as in screech, doosh.



  2. 2

    "Be Excited - be be Excited"!

    It sounds like they both need to pay Gwen Stefani for plagiarism. They blatantly ripped her off. Say what you will about Hollaback Girl, but it was the first song to ever reach 1 million paid downloads. Your "original" Madonna copied a Gwen song from 2005. So which is it now? Madonna influencing Gwen who influences Madonna. Chicken meets egg.

    LOL! Just because the spell the word "love" and 'banana' sounds like 'Madonna'..really? That other song sounds more like Gwen Stefani's 'Hollaback Girl'. Madonna's sounds is totally different.



  13. 13

  15. 15

    FUNNY HOW MADONNASAUR FANS ALWAYS MAKE EXCUSES FOR HER WHEN SHE GETS BUSTED.

    AND THEY HAVE THE NERVE TO CALL GAGA A COPYCAT?

    GAGA HAS NEVER BEEN SUED FOR PLAGIARISM.

    THIS IS MADONNASAUR'S 13TH COPYCAT LAWSUIT.

    ENOUGH SAID.



  16. 16

    The song by the Brazilian is actually better than Madonna's. I actually agree with the Gay Republican up there.



  17. 17

    The song sucks, no wonder the sexually screwed up love her they are a reflection of the perversity that she embodies. Well look at her the body don't exist. The GRANDMA of POP has is showing her age and dementia as well.

    clearly not a stretch, its unfortunate perez that u cant take away ur personal feelings, and call a spade a spade. madonna stole this clearly



  19. 19

    This is moronic. Madonna has never sued all the ones who have copied her throughout the years.



  20. 20

    Re: Lady Who? – Vultures mostly circle dead things. I hope you're not saying Madge's vadge smells like carrion.



  21. 21

    Queen better sue them all.. The songs sound nothing alike. Madonna is always being sued by money grubbing pricks. Sometimes they win, most times they don't….old news.

  22. @v@ says – reply to this


    22

    I hear a similarity. Maybe even random coincidence? She could make it go away or let it play out.



  23. 23

    Madonna sometimes make snide comments about people copying her, yet she's had people call her out for copying them.



  24. 24

    the song is campy but it is also stolen, it sound to much like madonna's version for it not to be..seems to be the thing amongst our musicians lately to steal lesser known talent's songs and dance moves



  25. 25

    Re: bedtimeboy – THAT'S BECAUSE SHE'S TOO BUSY GETTING SUED FOR COPYING PEOPLE



  26. 26

    Re: Keckielee – IF MADONNASAUR WOULD STOP COPYING PEOPLE THEN SHE WOULDN'T GET SUED ALL THE TIME.



  27. 27

    Madonna has many hits some of which are :
    Papa Don't Preach (to me about thievery)
    Vogue (to someone else's music)
    Express Yourself (by stealing)
    Material Girl (in possession of stolen items)
    Give It 2 Me (yes, I'm quite sure it was a gift)



  28. 28

    Perhaps if Madonna did indeed jack this, then she kinda defended herself with the lyrics "Every record sounds the same, You've got to step into my world".



  29. 29

    Gee, they both spell a word, clearly different. Word to Brazil, Get A Life!



  30. 30

    Looks like someone in Brazil needs a little attention! Whatever! Get a life!



  31. 31

    it sounds a lot like Nicola Roberts" "beat of my drum"



  32. 32

    The guy obviously knows there's no similarities and basically says it. It's more like his management trying to get a little exposure… and to the incredibly stupid people saying Madonna's song is a rip-off, well congratulations you have just proved evolution because you are a few notches below monkeys.



  33. 33

    L O V E BANANAS! L M A O



  34. 34

    lol!!



  35. 35

    What a load OF BS!!! Any song could sound like the cheerleading part. Sounds nothing like it.



  36. 36

    whats funny they say HIS song yet it looks like its a HER!!! lol

    Oh Brazil!

    On a different note Nicki Minaj's Performance at Grammys was Reductive to Gaga :D lol



  37. 37

    I think he has changed his mind!



  38. 38

    It seems like Joao Brasil plagiarized Gwen Stefani's "Hollaback Girl" more than anything else.
    Besides the cheerleading chant, he also plays with the word "banana", just like Gwen Stefani's song - which had a cheer leading chant and a playword with B-A-N-A-N-A-S.
    And regarding to L-O-V-E/L-U-V, I mean, is this guy for real? Should I start mentioning so many other people who have spelled that word in pop songs before both of them? Even Aslee Simpson did it. LOL
