Did Lady Gaga Steal "Born This Way" From South Korean Girl Group?

by at . Comments

For someone who prides herself on being unique, this is the second time in as many months that Lady Gaga stands accused of being anything but.

Gaga's hit single, "Born This Way," was criticized for sounding strikingly similar to Madonna ("Express Yourself") upon its release earlier this year.

Now it's fans of South Korean girl group SNSD crying foul, claiming "Born This Way" is SO similar to their hit "Be Happy" that it may be plagiarism ...

Thoughts? Is there anything to it? It's worth noting that the first wave of controversy basically died when Madonna said she supports Gaga's hit.

The track, from SNSD's album Oh!, came out in early 2010. Some pop songs will sound similar. It's inevitable. Plagiarism is a different matter.

What do you think? Did Gaga rip off "Born This Way"?


This is a complete and total ripoff of the song and I hope they sue the hell out of Gaga for it. Those that can't tell its a complete ripoff seriously need their ears examined!! Its WAY too similar to be anything but a complete ripoff and I truly hope they call her on it!!


I don't think she ripped it off at all. I think that ANY time that someone comes out and they become really huge and they're known for being different and actually WRITTING their music, there's always people out there that want to shut them down and try to make them seem less capable than they are.
I don't find they sound the same. People these days will find any reason to get money. Always pathetic excuses!
