Lady Gaga Sued For Ripping Off "Judas"

by at . Comments

According to a singer named Rebecca Francescatti, Lady Gaga's hit song "Judas" is a total rip-off of her 1999 song called ... wait for it ... "Juda".

Rebecca is suing Gaga in federal court, and claims the similarities between the two songs are not a coincidence. Her theory behind that claim?

Her former bass player, Brian Gaynor, is now employed by the music company that authored 17 songs for Gaga's most recent album, Born This Way.

"Though the songs are different styles, the composition is the same and the chorus is the same melody," said an attorney for Rebecca Francescatti.

"[Rebecca] is seeking recognition for what she created." Francescatti, who sings under the name Rebecca F., is suing Gaga for unspecified damages.

No comment from Lady Gaga's camp as of yet.

Seems a bit frivolous to us, but you decide. Listen to a snippet of "Juda" (above) and compare it to the Lady's video (below) and see what you think:

The gaga backlash is becoming crazy. Every minute there is a new story. First the x tina story posted by the examiner probably the biggest gaga hater ever. Then the japan lawsuit now this. She getting sued for a song that sound nothing like hers. This is the year of destroying lady gaga career but she still has a no.1 album and song platinum album minus amazon sell and 4 mil WW sales.

I dont really care for lady gaga but this rebecca woman wants a paycheck. Her song and gaga's sound nothing alike. The first five people commenting probably didnt even listen to the song just judging by your own personal opinion of her. This suit will just be thrown out. Some celeb steal but some people just want money.

This is the 3rd song she's been accused of ripping since the album came out. Born this Way. Electric Chapel. and now Judas. I used to be such a Gaga fanatic. Now I'm officially over her.
