Lady Gaga is accused of stealing “Born this way” song…again! Recently, there was something else that drew public attention upon Lady Gaga and this time it was not one of her strange and crazy outfits. It’s about her last song called “Born this way” and no, it’s not because is an incredibly good song, it’s because it might be plagiarized.
The rumors started to pop out less than a week ago, when some music fans (or maybe just Madonna’s) who have listened Gaga’s song, said that it’s very similar to Express Yourself by Madonna. There were several discussions on this topic, some said “Born this way” has nothing to to with “Express Yourself”, others said the similarities are obvious.
Now, Gaga is again accused by plagiarism, and this time could end badly. A South Korean production team claims that her most recent single sounds like “Be happy” a song which they wrote for a nine-member South Korean girl group called SNSD.
The Korean band released the song last year on their album called “Oh!”. After listening to Gaga’s “Born This Way”, the production team E-Tribe are planning to contact the pop-star managers and ask for a legal investigation concerning the similarities between the two songs. A representative for E-tribe said: “I listened, and I do feel that there are similarities. The way the song flows and the arrangements are, honestly, the same.”
Users of YouTube made a video in which they put the two tracks together, in order to compare them. Listen to yourself and figure it out: just how obvious is the similarity between “Born this way” and “Be happy”?
