Rebecca claims to have written a song called “Juda” in 1999, which sounds quite similar to Gaga’s tune. And Rebecca has proof Gaga’s song is hers. Rebecca’s former bass player, Brian Gaynor, is now employed by a song writing firm that wrote 17 of the songs on “Born This Way.”
Rebecca’s lawyer, Chris Niro, tells TMZ, “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.”
Rebecca is suing for an unspecified amount. Rebecca certainly has some convincing evidence, and this definitely hurts some of Gaga’s credibility.
Well, that’s what happens when you don’t write your own songs.
