Lady Gaga sued over ‘Judas’

London, Aug 6 (IANS) A copyright infringement lawsuit has been filed against pop star Lady Gaga over allegations that her hit single “Judas” was lifted from a song written by an aspiring singer, named Rebecca Francescatti.

The song was released earlier this year and featured in Gaga’s latest album “Born This Way”.

Francescatti claims the tune has a striking similarity with a piece she composed in 1999, named “Juda”, reports contactmusic.com.

The lawsuit was filed in a federal court earlier this month. Francescatti points out that her former bass player Brian Gaynor is now working for a music firm which was responsible for creating 17 tracks for “Born This Way”.

Francescatti’s lawyer, Chris Niro, said: “Though the songs are different styles, the composition is the same and the chorus is the same melody… (Francescatti) is seeking recognition for what she created.”
