Beyonce is being sued for using lyrics that were not her own.

Via Associated Press:

A Minnesota woman who sued Beyonce Knowles alleging the singer illegally used her lyrics on the hit song “Baby Boy” took her case to a federal appeals court Wednesday. Jennifer Armour of Shakopee, Minn., claims Knowles, 26, took the lyrics from her song, “Got a Little Bit of Love for You.” Her lawyer argued that the copyright infringement lawsuit — dismissed by a Houston judge’s summary judgment in favor of Knowles last year — should be heard by a jury. Armour’s lawsuit claims she heard Beyonce performing “Baby Boy” in 2003 “and recognized the hook and some of the lyrics from her song.”

“I do believe it was the heart of my song,” she said after Wednesday’s hearing. “When I first heard it, it hit me.”

Well this isn’t the first time. We didn’t forget that copyright infringement lawsuit from Des’ree back in April when a whole song was jacked completely. We know these “artists” don’t usually write their own songs but damn, at least give a sista some credit. Even the stans know that Beyonce’s songwriting consists of lyrics from tracks like “Bootylicious” and “Check On It”.

    this story is soooo old, she is APPEALING. They have already gone to court and Beyonce won. The Judge said the songs were not similar. And Baby Boy was written by JAY-Z.

    This is becoming a joke! I like Bey, but if she really is stealing someones lyrics, she should most definitely be dragged through the courts! But whoever wrote ‘Baby Boy’ did a really good job, also with the beats and all.

    Why are these celebs so quick to claim they write their own songs anyway? I guess it might be for the money & the honor of being able to have singer/songwriter next to their names huh?

    Anyway it’s not like her songs are all that deep anyway how hard is it to write about patting your weave & throwing on a freikum dress?

    Lol I can write a song about my new individual lashes & as long as the beat is good fools will run out & make it a hit….smh

    Well, that’s not a surprise…Really, most artists either steal their songs, or don’t write them. SO… Who cares anymore?

    I agree, who cares, most of the hot songs out are not original. They swagger jack old school music all the time.

  • Lady Architect

    In a way I think they lady is looking for some major pay off, but at the same time from her point of view I would be pissed also if someone made millions off a song that had my hook….

    ^^^Thank you! I’m a fan, but I told one of my girls b4 that she acts like she makes deep songs that really touch ppl. Don’t get me wrong, songs like “Survivor”, “Me, Myself and I”, “Girl”, etc. are positive, but damn, majority of her songs (especially this last cd) aren’t saying a damn thing.
