Singer Accuses Demi Lovato of Copying Song ’cause, Like, 5 Words Are the Same
Demi Lovato has been accused of ripping off other artists’ music in the past, and NGL, we kindasorta see where they were coming from. “Cool for the Summer” did, for example, remind us a WHOLE lot of Katy Perry‘s “I Kissed a Girl.” Bebe Rexha is now pointing the finger of blame at the 24-year-old crooner, because she claims DL’s new tune “Sorry Not Sorry” contains the “exact lyrics” from her track, “Bad Bitch.” Time to investigate…

As you know, we don’t often let Demi get away with shenanigans; when she does something that’s effed up, we’ll 100 percent call her out. But in this case, it’s definitely the 27-year-old who’s starting unnecessary drama. Let’s just go through both songs’ lyrics for a second, shall we?
“You’re f*ckin’ with them basics when you really want the baddest
So come on, baby, get it, ’cause to miss it, it would be tragic
You say you want a bad bitch, baby, now you have it
Now you got a bad bitch, show me you can handle this”
“Sorry Not Sorry:”
“Now payback is a bad bitch
And baby, I’m the baddest
You f*ckin’ with a savage
Can’t have this, can’t have this”
To recap, the overlapping words are — “bad bitch,” “baddest,” and “f*cking with.” Sorry not sorry (see what we did there?), Bebe, but that is NO WAY enough evidence to say the new jam is a rip-off.
9 Pop Musicians Who Were Accused of Ripping Off Another Artist’s Music Video:
Camila Cabello & Machine Gun Kelly 'Bad Things' v. The 1975 'Robbers'
Seems like where Camila goes, controversy follows... especially in the end of 2016. Just before she unexpectedly upped and left her girl group, Fifth Harmony, the 19-year-old pop singer dropped a vid with Machine Gun Kelly for their hit song, "Bad Things."
While the release should've been something to celebrate, almost immediately they were bombarded by fans commenting on how they stole the concept for the video from a 2014 music video by English rock band, The 1975. Frick. If you watch the two vids back to back, they are SUPER similar. However, both kind of take on the idea of a modern-day "Bonnie and Clyde" so, of course, it's POSSIBLE that Cam and MGK just happened to think up the same idea.
