Beyonce Lyric Jacking Again??

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”.

    oops meant to type – That’s such an unflattering picture of Beyonce….sorry!

    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.

  • JaliliMaster

    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.

  • The Real Essence 1

    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.

  • Bahama Mama

    LMAO A DROCK u r a fool

  • 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.

  • A

    not suprised there.. people always jackin other peoples stuff.

  • okay

    Oh I forgot to mention that “Bootylicious” is in the dictionary so that’s another thing that Bey has added to her long list of achievements for her “songwriting skills”. And she was the first AA female to win the ASCAP Songwriter of the Year award too so do they give those out to ppl who can’t write music? Really? LOL I highly doubt that. Damn Bey can’t win or lose w/ some ppl. It’s really sad.

  • Lady Architect

    nah Beyonce’s songwriting skills are definitely not that great…Yes the songs are chart toppers because of the beat and the easy to sing hooks…but I mean look at soulja boy…right now hes a chart topper with a song that no one understands until you get to the chorus for the actual dance…Just because you come up number 1 on a chart doesnt mean you exactly have songwriting skills.

  • LoveyDovey

    Beyonce can barely speak or compose a simple sentence. So you know she can’t write a song….She is a thief, jacking lyrics and Jay jackig rhymes.. both are theives

  • LoveyDovey

    AA female to win the ASCAP Songwriter of the Year award

    Beyonce didn’t even show up to claim that award because she knows she did not honestly earn it..Her dad the “salesman” showed up to get the award for her because he is used to lying and tricking but Beyonced did’t want to be asked any questions cuz she knows she’s a liar, Matt can field lies Beyonce si not intelligent enough to

    I DON’T THINK YOUR READY FOR THIS JELLY

    I DON’T THINK YOUR READY FOR THIS JELLY

    I’M INSPIRED

  • Mary J Blige

    Bey is my girl for real but wtf is up wid her face in that picture. Homegirl look like someone stole her eyes right from their socket

  • amazonia

    I totally agree with Lady architect. Nothing profound in her songs. Something like John Legend’s Ordinary people touches my heart. Songs on how to shake my ass and let a guy check on it are really not irreplaceable (haha)

  • Jess

    Sounds like some chickenhead trying to make a quick buck. Bey’s a businesswoman…I don’t see her being that damn dumb to steal a song from some nobody in some nobody town in a nobody state. And it’s no secret that the other Des’ree song was a remake, same damn title and all…just some complications in the copyright. Quit hatin so much on that girl. Or at least get better info.

  • Ttime

    @ 504OKAY:

    You are a fool, LOL…my point exactly. All the Beyonce lovers can love their idol, but at the same time… please, be fair and call a spade a spade.
