It looks like Taylor Swift will get to keep that $42 million after all!
On Tuesday, Judge Gail Standish of the United States District Court dismissed a case filed against T-Swift by musician Jessie Braham. He claimed that she had stolen lyrics from his song ‘Haters Gone Hate’ for her hit ‘Shake it Off’.
Are the lyrics vaguely similar? Fine. Are they so similar that she should have given him songwriting credit as well as all that cash money? Well, this Judge didn’t think so. Check out her statement (using Swift lyrics!!) below:
It looks like Taylor Swift will be shaking off this lawsuit and she learned firsthand (yet again) that haters gone hate!
