Ukrainian Singer Says Carly Rae Jepsen Stole Her Song
If you lived through the summer of 2012 there was no way to avoid Carly Rae Jepsen’s Call Me Maybe. The song was playing everywhere.
Now TMZ is reporting that Ukrainian singer Aza is suing Jepsen claiming that she stole her song.
The lawsuit was filled in LA and claims that Call Me Maybe is a direct rip off of her son Hunky Santa. She is suing of unspecified damages.
“I’m shocked and surprised that these people wanted to sample my lyrics on their song. They didn’t ask me for permission, they just took it. That’s why I filed this lawsuit. When I first heard it on the radio, I was driving and almost got into an accident. I couldn’t believe what I was hearing,” Aza told TMZ.
One of Jepsen’s reps responded, “This is completely false and [Carly’s] lawyers will deal with this. Everyone knows [Carly] is a songwriter. She is not spending a lot of time listening to Ukrainian radio.”
