Lady GaGa's 'Born This Way' Accused of Plagiarizing SNSD's 'Be Happy'
Lady GaGa is facing further accusations of plagiarism over her latest track "Born This Way" from two music producers, who claim there are "similarities" with a song they wrote for a South Korean girl band.
The "Poker Face" hitmaker released the highly-anticipated new single in February and was immediately criticized over allegations the track sounds just like Madonna's "Express Yourself". GaGa has since dismissed the slurs, and even insists Madonna has contacted her to support the record.
But now the controversial singer is facing fresh plagiarism allegations from production duo E-Tribe, who have announced plans to question GaGa over the song's alleged resemblance to a track called "Be Happy", which they wrote for pop group SNSD.
"Someone this morning told me that there were reports of Lady GaGa plagiarizing SNSD's 'Be Happy'," an E-Tribe representative tells Newsen. "I listened, and I do feel that there are similarities. The way the song flows and the arrangements are, honestly, the same. I am currently working to get in contact with Lady GaGa's publishing label to find further information."
