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”.
