Justin Bieber Is Getting Sued For Ripping Off Another Artist To Make His Biggest Banger, And It Sure Sounds Similar
If there’s one thing Bros of every creed can agree on, it’s Justin Bieber’s ‘Sorry’ was the banger society needed in 2016.
Uplifting and fun, it had a greater effect on the national mood than the CIA’s lacing of the water supply with Zoloft in advance of the presidential election.
That did wonders, too, though.
But did we place our hopes and trust in a false god? Did Bieber steal ‘Sorry?’ One lawsuit is alleging just that.
Musician White Hinterland claims that Bieber infringed on the copyright of her 2014 song “Ring the Bell.” The lawsuit says, in part, “The identical and/or striking similarity of ‘Sorry’ to Plaintiff’s song ‘Ring the Bell’ surpasses the realm of generic coincidence and independent creation.”
Well, it’s up for you Bros to decide (Note: It is not. We put judges and juries in charge of this shit, and not Bros, for good reason).
Here’s ‘Ring the Bell.’ Pay attention to the opening.
It certainly seems EXACTLY the same.
According to the suit, White Hinterland is only suing after informing Bieber of the similarities and not receiving any response.
If you recall, last year, Robin Thicke and Pharrell were forced to pay millions to Marvin Gaye’s estate after a judge ruled ‘Blurred Lines’ ripped off his song ‘Got To Give It Up.’
SO? Is Justin Bieber Really Sorry?
