The Bellamy Brothers to Britney Spears: You Ripped Off Our Song!

by at . Comments

And here we thought Britney Spears was merely ripping off a cheesy old pickup line with the lyrics to her newest #1 single, "Hold It Against Me."

Well, The Bellamy Brothers, singers of "If I Said You Had a Beautiful Body, Would You Hold It Against Me," claim it's their cheesy line dammit!

Bellamys and Brit

The country duo says it has "no personal beef" with Britney, however, "in all honesty, we feel completely ripped off. Where's the originality?"

LOL. She hasn't had any of that in years, but that doesn't mean she's to blame here. Anyway, the Bellamys aren't going to sue, they're just pissed.

Do they have reason to be? Listen to the two versions after the jump ...

Psh britney don't write her own songs let alone sing live! I couldn't listen to the whole song, I can only take so much auto tune in one day

All this tells us is that Brittany Spears song writers are a lot older than we thought. Nothing like a 45 year old writing sex driven songs for the kids.

These idiots shouldn't blame Britney. For one, we all know she doesn't write her own music and if the Bellamy Brothers claim that they've been "ripped off," well, one could argue that they stole their line for their hit "If I said you had a beautiful body (would you hold it against me?)" from Groucho Marx. I find it humorous that so many people like to use Britney in some way, shape, or form to bring attention to themselves. Let's be honest, how many people had even heard of the Bellamy Brothers before this incident? Probably not many.
