Plenty of artists have been accused over the years of stealing or copying another song for their own new music, and now Lady GaGa is at the center of another controversy.
With her new release, Do What You Want featuring R. Kelly, out for fans to enjoy, she's being hit with some serious thievery accusations!
It seems her song has a beat that some think sounds an awful lot like Dance with the Dead's The Deep. While the band has spoken out about them not thinking the two are similar, fans are still claiming a copycat!
Ch-ch-check out both songs and judge for yourself…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

We know they're twins, but could they be copycats???
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen transitioned quite nicely from child stars to fashion stars with the launch of their line, The Row, in 2006.
But even though they've had major success in the fashion world, that doesn't necessarily make them certified designers, at least according to celebrity stylist Lysa Cooper.
In an interview with Vogue Italia, Cooper gave MKO and Ashley the ultimate backhanded compliment, saying:

Gucci is not taking this lying down!
After a federal judge only rewarded the company $4.7 million in their bitter three-year battle against GUESS on Monday, a lawyer for Gucci says that they were shocked with the "surprisingly low" outcome.
Uh, yeah! After all, they were asking for a whopping $221 million in damages after alleging that GUESS copied their diamond "G" pattern and signature red and green strip on one of their shoe styles.
So, now Gucci is going to try to get their money elsewhere. They've just filed similar lawsuit$ overseas in China, Italy, and France.
Will this ever end???

Givenchy has filed a lawsuit against BCBG Max Azria, accusing the label of knocking off one of their most popular handbags.
The suit filed in Los Angeles, Givenchy claims BCBGeneration's Rembrandt is a deliberate copy of their Nightingale purse all the way down to the stitching.
Even thought the French fashion house doesn't have a design patent on the bag, they're still seeking damages and an injunction against BCBG Max Azria that would prevent them from making any more knock offs.
Think they have a case???
