Beyonce sued for $7m by former backup singer who claims she stole his song

A background singer named Ahmad Lane filed a federal lawsuit last year against Knowles, her music company Parkwood Entertainment and Columbia Records, accusing Beyonce of stealing his music for her hit song “XO.” He claimed that he worked as a background singer with Knowles’ current background singer Chrissy Collins for another artist. During his time working with Collins he had given her a copy of his song “XOXO” to listen to and infers that she passed it along to Knowles.

Well, on June 4, 2015, Knowles fired back at the background singer’s lawsuit claiming his complaint is a “vague and cryptic.”

She explains that she is a internationally known singer who has won 17 Grammys and sold over 118 million albums
“The two works at issue are entirely different songs that share no lyrical or musical similarity, other than perhaps the letters “X” and “O.” The documents also state that Lane never filed a “copyright registration” for his song.
The documents claims that Lane’s description of the copyright infringement is due to the fact that Knowles’ song “allegedly copies the first four bars of an eight bar melody that is looped,” and “contains a four note sequence that is similar to the four note sequence,” in her song.

Knowles’ attorney writes asking the court to listen to the man’s song and compare it to hers and states that if anyone was to listen to both they would find the two works don’t share any, “melodic content and there is no meaningful similarity in pitch series, rhythm or rhythmic patterns, melodic development or structure”

Also, Knowles’ attorney states, “the two songs are distinct from a thematic perspective” with the man’s song describing the narrator’s romantic and sexual feelings towards a new lover. His song features lyrics talking about “being horny” and “wanting to love every inch of the lover’s body,” while her song is a “celebration of love and life, emphasizing the importance of living in the present with a loved one ‘before our time has run out.’”

Knowles is asking the court to dismiss the $7 million dollar lawsuit and that the background singer be awarded nothing because her song was officially co-written and co-produced by Ryan Tedder, Terius 'The Dream' Nash, and Beyonce.

Lions & other animals escape from Zoo in Georgia after serious flood roaming the streets (photos)

Wild animals including lions, tigers, bears, jaguars, wolves and other animals escaped from their zoo this morning after serious flood and are currently roaming the streets of Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia (a country at the intersection of Europe and Asia). According to officials in the city capital, the flooding has killed at least 8 people and several animals in the zoo died. The ones that didn't die in the flood, which happened after a river burst its banks in central Tbilisi after hours of torrential rain, are now roaming the streets. Dozens of families are now without shelter after their homes were flooded and cars swept away. Thousands of people are currently left without water and electricity.

Some of the animals that escaped from their enclosure have been captured by security forces while the more dangerous one have been shot dead. See some photosSecurity forces have killed six escaped wolves in the garden of Children's Hospital. At least 1 lion was killed earlier. src="" />
