Lady Gaga Accused Of Ripping Off “Judas”

Hey guys, Lady Gaga isn’t being accused of ripping off Madonna for once! On the other hand…Lady Gaga’s “Judas” lawsuit claims it was neither Alexander McQueen nor the Lord Almighty who whispered the blasphemous jam into Mother Monster’s ear, as she’s has claimed. Instead, the music was allegedly lifted in part from Rebecca Francescatti‘s 1999 song “Juda.” But at least no one can say Gaga didn’t come up with the phrase “ear condom.” So at least she…at least she has that.

According to Francescatti’s lawyer Chris Niro, “Though the songs are different styles, the composition is the same and the chorus is the same melody … [Rebecca] is seeking recognition for what she created.” The suit also draws attention to the fact that Rebecca’s former bass player Brian Gaynor now works for the company that wrote several songs for Gaga’s recently-released album Born This Way. TMZ currently has the two songs side-by-side for comparison, and we have to say…we’re not impressed. Is Francescatti sure she didn’t mean to accuse Alanis Morissette of ripping her off? Not that we’d believe that either; Alanis still gets all her songs from those transparent dangling carrots.
