Many feel all great artists get their inspiration from other great artists but there’s a thin line between using someone’s song as a muse and outright ripping them off. These 15 musicians have been accused of stealing another artist’s music.
R&B singer Alicia Keys took a break from making music to start a family. Returning to the scene with a brand new image and a new album, the New York native lit up the charts with her single “Girl On Fire.” Too bad the song that helped re-launched her career would lead her right into a courtroom. Songwriter Eric Shurman has accused the “Foolish” singer of using his 1962 song “Hey There Lonely Girl” that was used by Eddie Harmon for her hit song. Last December Shuman filed a lawsuit against Keys, who is now a girl getting sued.
