Amura Namie Accused Of Plagiarizing G-Dragon

2011/11/10 Source

Top Japanese celebrity Amuro Namie (age 34) is being accused to plagiarizing a song by Big Bang's leader G-Dragon (age 23).

According to Japanese media sources on November 9th, "There are suspicions of Amuro Namie's new song "Sit! Stay! Wait! Down!", set for a December 7th release, having been plagiarized off of G-Dragon's "Heartbreaker" song. Two years ago, G-Dragon's "Heartbreaker" was also accused of plagiarizing a song by US hip hop artist Florida".

This isn't the first time Namie faces such charges. She had a similar case pop up over her song "Black Diamond", when it was linked with being familiar to Janet Jackson's "Feedback".

Critical netizens have been taking to the net: "Another one copied?", "The melodies are almost identical", "We're both Japanese, but I can't deny and protect her", "Why copy k-pop out of all things?". On the other end, some are supporting the singer: "Totally different", "A bit of a stretch to say it's plagiarized".

Namie's reps have yet to release an official statement.
