Ukrainian Singer Claims Carly Rae Jepsen Stole “Call Me Maybe”
I don’t know where to begin with this one…After listening through the alleged “original” (posted below) by Ukrainian singer Aza, I am both confused and appalled at this seemingly apparent publicity stunt. The track not only sounds NOTHING like the disgustingly overplayed mega-hit, but contains extremely minimal (if any) similarities between this and Carly’s Call Me Maybe.
Aza gave press her opinion on the situation, “I’m shocked and surprised that these people wanted to sample my lyrics on their song. They didn’t ask me for permission, they just took it. That’s why I filed this lawsuit. When I first heard it on the radio, I was driving and almost got into an accident. I couldn’t believe what I was hearing.” Even naming Justin Bieber‘s manager, Scooter Braun in the lawsuit.
The fact that artists feel that by suing their way into the media’s attention will get them fans is beyond the point of creativity and treads into the realm of pathetics. It’s only a matter of time until this all blows over anyway, but for your entertainment the “original” is posted below. WARNING: The song is horrendous.
