ICYMI: Over 200 Musicians — Including Jennifer Hudson, R. Kelly, & Weezer — Defend Pharrell Against 'Dangerous' Blurred Lines Verdict!

no title

Last week, it was reported that Pharrell Williams and Robin Thicke clapped back hard at that Blurred Lines lawsuit — appealing the verdict that they committed copyright infringement against Marvin Gaye's Got to Give It Up.

Throughout the drawn out court battle, the singers expressed the sentiment that paying homage to an earlier era and making a song reminiscent of a sound shouldn't fall under copyright infringement.

And it looks like a TON of musicians agree — because 212 artists, composers, and producers have filed a brief with the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in support of the bid by Williams, Thicke, and T.I. to overturn the decision.

Musicians from all corners of the industry have banded together to support the appeal, claiming that the Blurred Lines creators deserve victory on grounds that the court's ruling will set a precedent that will "stifle creativity" and "impede the creative process."

Among those who threw their names in the ring are the members of Train, Linkin Park, Earth, Wind & Fire, The Black Crowes, Fall Out Boy, as well as Weezer's Rivers Cuomo, Hall & Oates' John Oates, R. Kelly, Hans Zimmer, Jennifer Hudson, Jean Baptiste, Evan Bogart and Brian Burton (Danger Mouse).

Chris Robinson: "Taylor Swift Is Not Very Talented!"

Filed under: Music MinuteTaylor Swift

Leave Taylor alone!

The Black Crowes' Chris Robinson is picking on Taylor Swift and we think he should shut his filthy mouth!

He says:

"I find it embarrassing that adults are like, 'Taylor Swift is very talented.' She's not. She might be cute, but she's horrible. They have stylists who dress them, they make records with producers who play a chord into the computer and it all comes out the same…

"When you have computers doing it all for you… there's no individuality. Singing isn't always about being on key; it's about emotionality."

He sounds like a crabby old man, doesn't he?

You're just jealous that T-Swizzle gets more attention than your band!
