Robin Thicke Sues Marvin Gaye’s Family Over ‘Blurred Lines’

Posted by on Aug 16, 2013 in Celebrity Beef, Celebrity Drama, Celebrity Music, Celebrity News | 6 comments

Even though the radio has pretty much worn the song out, I still like Blurred Lines. It’s fun, funky and refreshing.  And yes, it does remind me of Marvin Gaye‘s Got To Give It Up. Apparently, Robin was just inspired by Marvin’s music.  But The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Marvin Gaye‘s family is anything but pleased.  Robin Thicke, Pharrell & T.I. have gotten together to file a lawsuit, claiming they’ve received threats to sue from Gaye‘s family.

The suit claims the Gaye family is alleging that “Blurred Lines” and Gaye’s “Got to Give It Up” “feel” or “sound” the same, and that the “Gaye defendants are claiming ownership of an entire genre, as opposed to a specific work.”

As for Funkadelic, there’s said to be claimed similarity between Thicke’s hit and Funakedlic’s “Sexy Ways.”

“But there are no similarities between plaintiffs’ composition and those the claimants allege they own, other than commonplace musical elements,” states the lawsuit. “Plaintiffs created a hit and did it without copying anyone else’s composition.”

T.I. & Tiny Arrest Update: Codeine, Marijuana and Ecstasy

Posted by on Sep 17, 2010 in Celebrity Couples, Celebrity Crimes, Celebrity Drama, Celebrity News | 11 comments

This is not a good look for T.I. or Tiny—but especially T.I. who has been on probation since his 2009 weapons charge and stint in prison. T.I.’s probation officer filed documents in Georgia stating that the L.A. Sheriff’s office found codeine, marijuana and ecstasy in his car. They also found opiates in T.I.’s blood. Codeine is an opiate. Though a court date has not been set, T.I. will soon enough be standing in front of a judge explaining why he shouldn’t be sent back to prison for violating his probation. The violations would be: possession, testing positive for opiates and association with a felon. Not sure what the last charge is about, isn’t T.I. himself the felon? hmmmm, SMH.

Do you think T.I. should go back to prison?

Mugshots: T.I. And Tameka ‘Tiny” Cottle; Faith Evans Charged With 2 Counts Of DUI

Posted by on Sep 3, 2010 in Celebrity Couples, Celebrity Crimes, Celebrity Drama, Celebrity News, Celebrity Photos | 3 comments

This whole situation with T.I. and his wife Tameka ‘Tiny’ Cottle just seems so ridiculous to me. I can’t believe that the two of them with their kids to look after (and after T.I. just got his freedom from doing a stint in prison for weapons charges) could be so irresponsible and reckless. It’s difficult to sympathize with either one of them. According to TMZ, the police have confirmed that the drugs found in T.I.’s car were in fact ecstasy pills.

T.I. and Tiny aren’t the only ones in trouble. Faith Evans is facing two counts of DUI after being arrested on August 21st at a DUI checkpoint in L.A. If convicted, Evans can face up to 6 months in jail.  SMH.
