Taylor Swift Sued Over ‘Shake It Off’ Lyrics

Post 87 of 2465

Taylor Swift is facing a lawsuit over lyrics to her 2014 hit “Shake It Off” found on her fifth album “1989.” The songwriters behind 3LW’s 2001 song “Playas Gon’ Play” are asking a California federal judge to decide if Swift’s tune infringes on their lyrics. Songwriters Sean Hall and Nathan Butler claim they popularized the now commonly used phrase. A representative for Swift issued a statement yesterday in response to the lawsuit, calling it a “ridiculous claim” and a “money grab.”
