"I can't look like a copycat of J.Lo" Old texts reveal why Gaga begged to be credited on J.Lo's song
Explosive texts reveal Lady Gaga BEGGED to be credited on Jennifer Lopez's song Invading My Mind https://t.co/SA8w9TCXq8— Daily Mail Celebrity (@DailyMailCeleb) August 8, 2017
- Chicago-local singer Rebecca Francescatti sued Lady Gaga in 2011 for copyright infringement because she claimed it was based on her own song 'Juda.'
- The judge originally ruled in Gaga's favor, but Francescatti appealed the decision and the case was finally settled out of court.
- Now DailyMail is revealing the texts in the 2011 court documents sent by Lady Gaga which allegedly show she 'lied' to Jennifer Lopez to save her own reputation. The texts were part of Francescatti's argument intended to show Gaga as someone who is capable of copying another artist.
- In the texts, Lady Gaga was worried Judas sounded too similar to J.Lo's 'Invading My Mind', and begged RedOne to credit her on the song.
Lady Gaga, March 17, 2011 :
'We need to update Judas beat.. it sounds to much like Jlo "invading"…[RedOne]!!!'
'We have a big problem'
'Red.. It is exactly like judas'
'I can hear that the same midi was used and moved around'
'U have to change the track for her..even the FORMAT is the same'
'And its on perezhilton.com as a leak'
'And peeople will say I stole from jlo!
'I love judas SO MUCH but I canʹt look like a copycat of JLO!!!!' 💀
March 18, 2011, Gaga says:
'Is the Jlo song being changed? '
'I am very concerned about this JLo thing'
'I'm afraid you and I are gonna look bad'
'What if people say Iʹm unoriginal because of this?'
'I am so afraid'
'I played it for a few more people'
'They were worried.'
Gaga suggests her plan to RedOne:
'Maybe if u gave me credit on both songs it would avoid comparison?'
'. . .Iʹm very concerned I will get accused of being unoriginal
'But if u credit me on both records ..oneee for production, one for writing it will certainly help w the comparisons'
'Embrace!!!! It ONLY will make you look credible and masssssive!!!!'
'IF and only IF u give me production credit on "invading my mind", [I'll] give [her Hypnotico] record'
'Because this was if anyone notices similarities, I can say "I worked on that record w [RedOne]"'
'I donʹt think I will do, duet, but I will give her the record if u SWEAR to give me the deserved credit on invading..'
'I swear !!!!!'
