Taylor Swift is trying to shake off a lawsuit that claims she stole the lyrics to her hit “Shake It Off.”
R&B singer Jessie Graham claims Swift used parts of his song “Haters Gonna Hate.” He says her hit sounds very much like his work.
Part of it includes these lyrics: “Haters gone hate. Haters gone hate. Players gone play. Players gone play. Watch out for them fakers. They’ll fake you every day. Fake you every day,”
Graham asked to be named as a writer on Swift’s song, but the pop singer’s team told him he had no merit. He’s now suing for $42 million.
