Alicia Keys Slapped With Lawsuit For Stealing Girl On Fire Tune?!

Ruh roh!!

It seems Alicia Keys' blazing fire may get extinguished from the insidious waters of a copyright infringement lawsuit, which claims the flaming lady stole parts of her hit single Girl on Fire from songwriter Earl Shuman's Lonely Boy!

Alicia is being sued by Shuman who penned the original track back in 1962. The tune was made famous by singer Eddie Holman in 1970, but was renamed Hey There Lonely Girl.

The silliest part of all this is that Mr. Shuman hadn't even heard Girl on Fire until a blogger brought up the fact that it sounded very similar to HIS song, and once he listened to the single, we guess Earl agreed…

Because Earl has filed papers in Los Angeles claiming that parts of his 1962 track is indeed used in Girl on Fire!

After listening to both songs, we don't find them to be all that similar…

Take a listen to Alicia's passionate delivery of Girl on Fire (above), then open your ears to Hey There Lonely Girl and decide for yourself whether or not Earl's claim is justifiable …AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Sia Takes Back Her Diamonds From Rihanna! WATCH HERE!

Filed under: RihannaMusic MinuteAwardzPerezTVSia

Oh exquisite musical goddess Sia! Your Diamonds glint and glitter and create pure, blinding bliss!!

We obviously adore Rihanna's version of her debut smash single off of Unapologetic, but the actual tune was co-written by Australian singer/songwriter Sia and Benny Blanco

And Sia decided to perform HER version of Diamonds during Wednesday's Norwegian-American Achievement Awards (above)!

Absolute perfection!

Girl owns that tune in such a different — yet equally AWEsome — way than Princess Riri, and we are simply blown to smithereens by everything that is Sia!

Lady Si also wrote the gorgeous tune Blank Page on Christina Aguilera's new album Lotus, and now we totally want to hear her version of that track too!

DO IT UP, oh wonderful creature!

Taylor Swift Stole Lyrics From Another Artist?!

Filed under: Music MinuteTaylor SwiftTwitter

Matt Nathanson Taylor Swift

You may have heard singer/songwriter Matt Nathanson's music on Scrubs. You may not have heard of him at all.

But Taylor Swift has heard of him. In fact, she's a big fan, having written his lyrics on her arms in concert on more than one occasion.

But did she write down some of his lyrics in one of her songs??

In a tweet he has since deleted, Matt wrote:

"she's definitely a fan… and now she's a thief."

Whoa! What is he talking about anyway? Well, apparently

Christina Aguilera Slyly Bashes Britney Spears And N'Sync

Christina Aguilera grew up alongside Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake, but that doesn't mean she has any respect for their music.

While talking up her album Lotus, the Voice judge mentioned working with Swedish songwriter Max Martin and nonchalantly discredited his work with her Mickey Mouse Club co-stars by saying:

Ed Sheeran Gets Intimate: Talks Taylor Swift, One Direction & MORE! WATCH HERE!

The loveliest ginger snap from across the pond AKA Ed Sheeran is getting allll sorts of intimate in an interview for SB.TV (above)!

Ed chats about chillin' with Taylor Swift, writing tunes for One Direction, the influnce hip hop, rap and grime music has had on his own style, and oh so much MORE!

The super successful singer/songwriter is humble, down to earth and so f*cking clever with his lyrics and tune crafting, he probably pees out pure, unfiltered talent.

Oh Ed, if you were a milkshake you'd be the flavor of sweet countryside strawberries and we'd slurp you up to your very last drop!

Yummmmm.
