Robin Thicke & Pharrell Will Pay Millions Less Over Blurred Lines — But It's Not The Result They Wanted!

Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams may not be celebrating victory in their Blurred Lines case — but they do have some good news.

After a jury awarded the family of the late Marvin Gaye with a verdict of $7.4 million in their copyright infringement suit over similarities to the song Got To Give It Up, a judge has only mostly upheld the ruling.

While there won't be a new trial as Robin and Pharrell's legal team requested, the judge did lessen the total money owed to $5.3 million.

Williams has the most to be Happy about; he was ruled as only a "practical partner" to Thicke and liable only for his share of profits. He went from having to pay $1.6 mil to $357,000.

The judge also denied the Gaye family's request to block Blurred Lines from further distribution, instead giving them 50% of future songwriting royalties.

While this is somewhat good news, Robin and Pharrell still attest the song shouldn't be ruled as copyright infringement at all, and many in the music industry agree.

Could this set a scary precedent for "homage" sounds? What do YOU think??

Are you ready to relive one of the best parts of the '90s?!

The BET Awards treated us all to a Bad Boy tribute complete with performances from Diddy, Lil' Kim, Ma$e, Faith Evans, and 112!

But the guest spots didn't stop there.

For some reason French Montana performed Bobby Shmurda's Hot N*gga, and Pharrell popped on stage to keep the music going!

Then Chris Brown randomly ran out into the crowd and Janelle Monae made an appearance at the end.

If you're thinking this sounds outrageous, it IS! Ch-ch-check it out (below) and see for yourself.

Apple Announces Its All-In-One App With The Help Of Drake & The Weeknd!

| Filed under: Music MinutePharrellJay ZBusiness BlitzDrakeBastilleFKA twigsThe Weeknd

Apple revealed it's new music service!

Step aside, Spotify and Tidal! Apple's got big plans for their new music service!

The music giant announced its new app, Apple Music at the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco on Monday — and it has it ALL.

Literally!

The app's got streaming, radio, and downloading, but believe it or not, there's MORE! Apple Music will also include a feature called Connect, which incorporates a social media element, allowing artists to connect with their fans by posting content through their own profiles.

And who better to introduce the service's social side than Drake! The rapper presented how he started from the bottom — AKA the Internet — to develop a fanbase, which is why he thinks Connect is such a great addition!

We wonder if this endorsement from Drizzy means he's in for a Tidal wave of drama with Jay Z. Hmmmmmm.

But Wheelchair Jimmy isn't the only famous face showing support for the new app. The company said that Pharrell, Chris Cornell, Bastille, and Alabama Shakes all will have profiles on Connect.

Thought the announcement couldn't get more star-studded? Think again!

The Apple event also incorporated a performance by

Queen Latifah took on Marlon Wayans on Thursday night's Lip Sync Battle, and it was truly a battle of the sexes sexiness!

First Marlon was all in Latifah's personal space — and host LL Cool J — with his very touchy version of Pharrell's Happy. Then the Queen responded with a rendition of My Lovin' (You're Never Gonna Get It) by En Vogue!

Later, Marlon tried a much smoother tactic with his version of Sam Smith's Stay With Me!

But Queen Latifah kept the old school flow by impersonating LL with his Rock The Bells! Even Marlon had to bow down to the Queen's skills!

See every performance and decide who YOU think won (below)!

Marlon Wayans Makes Queen Latifah Very UN-Happy With His Pharrell Performance! Watch The Up-Close-And-Personal Lip Sync Battle Preview HERE!

No offence to Marlon Wayans, but when we heard he was taking on Queen Latifah on Lip Sync Battle, we figured he was dead in the water.

We mean, she has a rich music background, and he made Scary Movie!

But Lip Sync isn't about singing but about the bigger performance, and really making the space your own!

Of course, Queen Latifah probably didn't think he'd use her personal space for his performance of Happy!

See Marlon blur some lines while impersonating Pharrell (below)!
