Taylor Swift and Adam Young — All This Cheese is Going to My Ass

Taylor Swift recently confessed to writing her song Enchanted for Adam Young of the band Owl City.  If you haven’t heard of Owl City, I recommend you listen to The Postal Service, because they basically ripped them off.  Anyways, Young got Swift’s love letter, and he wrote a song for her in response.  Though I fancy myself romantic, I draw the line at writing songs for each other in the press.  Plus, I’ve had my allotted share of cheese for the week.  Listen to the songs below.



Lady Gaga Arrives At the Grammys in an Egg — Or a Silicone Breast

There’s a lot of buzz surrounding Lady Gaga’s Grammy arrival, and I’m convinced the press got it wrong.  If you look closely at the video below, you’ll notice that it’s not an egg at all.  I did some Gaga research, and I discovered that she’s actually spent most of her life dreaming of entering the inside of a woman’s fake breast, and she wanted to fulfill her fantasy in front of her fans.  Alright, that’s a joke . . . or is it?  Watch the video below and judge for yourself.  As an aside, with all the music rip-off posts I’ve been writing lately, it’s only fair to also point out television show rip-offs.  Watch the second video to see what I mean.

Lady Gaga’s ‘Born This Way’ — Ripoff of Madonna’s ‘Express Yourself’

I won’t spend too much time on this, since I don’t think it’s even up for debate whether Lady Gaga ripped off Madonna.  Just listen to the two songs below and judge for yourself.  If you don’t think Born this Way is just a remix of Madonna’s Express Yourself, then I’d tell you to get your ears checked.  This isn’t the first time Gaga has been accused of ripping someone off — remember her Ace of Base song? Enjoy the songs below.

Did Lady Gaga Rip-off Ace of Base?

I was driving in my car the other day when Lady Gaga’s new song, ‘Alejandro’ came on the radio.  As my  hair blew in the sunroof created breeze, I thought to myself, “gosh, this song sounds awfully familiar.”  By the third chorus it hit me!  It’s an Ace of Base rip-off of the song ‘Don’t Turn Around.’  Apparently, I’m not the only person to notice either.  The irony is that Lady Gaga and Ace of Base are the only two out of three artists (Avril Lavigne makes three) in the last sixteen years to score three #1 hits off a debut album.  So is this a copy or just a strange coincidence?  Listen below and judge for yourself.
