Lady Gaga caused controversy when she released the song Judas, and it’s not ending yet.  She’s being sued over the song by another artist claiming Gaga ripped them off.

TMZ is reporting that [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Lady Gaga[/lastfm] is being sued by Rebecca Francescatti.  Francescatti is saying that Gaga took Judas from her 1999 song Juda.

Rebecca says it’s similar because her former bass player, Brian Gaynor, is employed by a music company that wrote 17 songs on Gaga’s “Born This Way” album.

I have heard both songs, and you can listen to the chorus of Rebecca’s song below, and I have to say, I don’t think it’s very similar.

Rebecca’s lawyer said, Though the songs are different styles, the composition is the same and the chorus is the same melody … Rebecca is seeking recognition for what she created.”

I think someone just wants some attention.  What do you think?
