Livan Rafael Castellanos had accused Shakira and Vives of plagiarizing his 1997 song “Yo te quiero tanto” in their award-winning hit “La Bicicleta.”

“I have nothing against Shakira, Vives or anybody else,” Livam told Associated Press. “It’s the law that needs to decide whether changing a song’s key is enough to make it different.”

Livam, who works in Madrid as a composer and producer, said his three-year-old daughter identified her dad’s melody in La Bicicleta when the family heard the hit on a radio during a beach holiday last summer.

A legal representative for Sony ATV Music Publishing in Spain, which represents Shakira and Castro, said the company couldn’t comment as it had not received notice of the lawsuit.

SGAE, the main society managing the rights of authors and publishers in Spain, said it had suspended the rights of the song following the association’s usual procedure when two of its members lodge a complaint.

This is not the first time Shakira has faced allegations of plagiarism.

In 2012, the Dominican singer and composer Ramón Arias Vásquez – known as Arias – accused the Colombian superstar of copying one of his compositions in her 2010 hit Loca.

Although a US judge initially ruled that Shakira’s song was indirectly copied from Arias’ song, he later dismissed the copyright infringement case on the grounds that Arias had lied to the court and that the cassette tape on which he had based his claims was a fake.

“It’s like they’re touching one of my children…they’re stealing from me.”

In ‘La Bicicleta,’ Vives and Shakira sing the Spanish generic phrase, ‘Que te sueño y te quiero tanto’ (I dream of you and I love you so much). In ‘Yo Te Quiero Tanto,’ Livam sings an equally generic phrase, ‘Yo te quiero, yo te quiero tanto’ (I love you, I love you a lot).

Taylor Swift’s “Me!” Lyrics With Brendon Urie:

I promise that you’ll never find another like me

Verse 1: Taylor Swift
I know that I’m a handful, baby, uh / I know I never think before I jump / And you’re the kind of guy the ladies want/ And there’s a lot of cool chicks out there / I know that I went psycho on the phone / I never leave well enough alone / And trouble’s gonna follow where I go / And there’s a lot of cool chicks out there.

Pre-chorus: Taylor Swift
But one of these things is not like the others / Like a rainbow with all of the colors / Baby doll, when it comes to a lover / I promise that you’ll never find another like

Chorus: Taylor Swift
Me-e-e, ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh / I’m the only one of me / Baby, that’s the fun of me / Eeh-eeh-eeh, ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh / You’re the only one of you / Baby, that’s the fun of you / And I promise that nobody’s gonna love you like me.

Verse 2: Taylor Swift and Brendon Urie
I know I tend to make it about me / I know you never get just what you see
But I will never bore you, baby / And there’s a lot of lame guys out there / And when we had that fight out in the rain / You went after me and called my name / I never wanna see you walk away / And there’s a lot of lame guys out there.

Pre-Chorus: Taylor Swift and Brendon Urie
‘Cause one of these things is not like the others / Livin’ in winter, I am your summer / Baby doll, when it comes to a lover / I promise that you’ll never find another like

Chorus: Taylor Swift and Brendon Urie
Me-e-e, ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh / I’m the only one of me / Let me keep you company / Eeh-eeh-eeh, ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh / You’re the only one of you / Baby, that’s the fun of you / And I promise that nobody’s gonna love you like me

Bridge: Taylor Swift and Brendon Urie
Hey, kids! / Spelling is fun! / Girl, there ain’t no I in “team” / But you know there is a “me” / Strike the band up, 1, 2, 3 / I promise that you’ll never find another like me / Girl, there ain’t no I in “team” / But you know there is a “me” / And you can’t spell “awesome” without “me” / I promise that you’ll never find another like.

Netherlands wins Eurovision

“This is to dreaming big. This is to music first, always.”

The Netherlands’ Duncan Laurence has won the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest with his song Arcade.

He had been the bookmakers’ favourite to win, and came through to the top of the leaderboard with 492 points after the public vote.

The UK’s Michael Rice came bottom, after getting just three points from the public vote, and a total of 16 points for Bigger Than Us.

Laurence said: “Here’s to dreaming big, this is to music first, always.”

The last time The Netherlands won was 1975. The audience joined in as Laurence performed the track again at the end of the show.

Italy finished second with 465 and Russia third with 369 points.

The ceremony also saw last year’s winner Netta perform, while singers from previous contests also sang each other’s songs.

Conchita Wurst, Mans Zelmerlow, Gali Atari, Eleni Foureira and Vjerka Serdjucka
The contest also featured a performance from American superstar Madonna, and a crowd-pleasing segment that saw previous winners sing hit songs from the competition’s history.
But, like a handful of editions in the past, it struggled to shake off an overbearing political row. After protests in the host city and abroad leading up to the show, popular Icelandic group Hatari raised Palestinian flags during the broadcast.
Madonna had a message of her own, featuring dancers with both Palestinian and Israeli flags on their backs.
The contest will next head to the Netherlands, with the winning nation taking over hosting duties for a year. The country’s victory is its fifth in total, joining the UK, France and Luxembourg in the all-time ranks. Only Ireland and Sweden, which the Netherlands topped for the title, have won more contests.

Israel earned the right to host the show after Barzilai won last year’s competition with her catchy pop anthem “Toy.”

Taylor Swift appeared on The Ellen Degeneres Show earlier this week in her first sit-down interview in years.

Eager to find out all about her, Ellen asked the 29-year-old a whole host of strange questions.

They included what her favourite swear word is to what she does if she can’t sleep at night – nothing was left of topic.

Although that was not the only thing that surprised fans.

Sending Twitter into a frenzy, the Shake It Off singer shared one of her very bizarre bathroom habits.

Sending Twitter into a frenzy, the Shake It Off singer shared one of her very bizarre bathroom habits.

Degeneres asked Miss Swift if she washed her legs in the shower to which she replied: “I do, because when you shave your legs, the shaving cream is like soap, right?”

The host agreed with the blonde bombshell that women who shave in the shower do take good care of their legs.

Dividing her devotees with the response, many said they don’t believe shaving cream was quite the same thing as soap.

The internet wasn’t in agreement though – with many on Twitter saying they don’t believe shower gel/cream is the same thing as soap.

One person tweeted: ” Taylor Swift said ‘shaving cream is basically soap’ so as long as she shaves her legs, she doesn’t need to wash them in the shower. No, no, no, no no, no…”

Another responded: “How the hell do you not wash your legs in the shower??? Huh?? You just stop after your butt and that’s it? Taylor Swift said she don’t wash her legs but she shaves them girl that is not the same thing wtf.”

Woodstock 50 pushes back ticket on-sale, swears everything’s fine

Tickets for the star-studded Woodstock 50 festival were supposed to go on sale this Monday, but the on-sale date has been pushed back indefinitely. Ticket agents say they’re still waiting for a press statement from festival organizers; Rolling Stone speculates that the reason for the delay is that the festival doesn’t yet have the necessary permit from New York State.

Unsurprisingly, rumors began to circulate that the festival could be cancelled. Woodstock co-founder Michael Lang dismissed those rumors, saying, “Woodstock is a phenomenon that for 50 years has drawn attention to its principles and also the rumors that can be attached to that attention.” (Jay)

Musician marriage news: Ups and downs

We’ve got two marriage stories about famous musicians today: one marriage ending and one beginning. Let’s get the sad news out of the way first.

Adele has parted ways with her husband Simon Konecki. In a statement, her representatives said, “Adele and her partner have separated. They are committed to raising their son together lovingly. As always they ask for privacy.” (Billboard)

Now the happy news: in a candlelight ceremony on Saturday in New Orleans, singer-songwriter Michelle Branch tied the knot with Patrick Carney of the Black Keys. The couple started dating in 2015, and Billboard reports they fell in love while Carney was producing Branch’s 2017 album Hopeless Romantic. (Jay)

Viral clip: Florence + The Machine go to Westeros

Probably no other TV show this year will get people talking as much as the last season of Game of Thrones. The season’s second episode debuted on Sunday night, and it featured a song performed by Florence Welch, a.k.a. Florence + The Machine.

Welch sang “Jenny of Oldstones,” a song written by the show’s composers based on lyrics from George R.R. Martin’s novels. The character Podrick Payne sings the song during the episode, and Welch’s version rolls over the closing credits.

In a statement, Welch said, “When I first heard the song it sounded like a Celtic lullaby to me. Celtic music has always been in my blood, so I felt like I could do something with it. The magic and ritual in Game of Thrones, not to mention the costumes, have always appealed to me. I am honoured to be a part of the final season.”
