Miley Cyrus Slapped With A $300 Million Copyright Infringement Lawsuit Over “We Can’t Stop”

Miley Cyrus sued for 300 millionMiley Cyrus may have left her twerking days behind, but the hip hop-influenced “Bangerz” era is coming back to haunt her. New reports have surfaced stating “The Voice” judge is being sued for $300 million by Jamaican dancehall artist Flourgon for her song “We Can’t Stop.”

Reuters reports that Flourgon, born Michael May, is accusing Miley for jacking his 1988 single “We Run Things.” The dancehall artist claims Miley’s song “subtantially incorporated” his melody and the hook is similar. In the 2013 track, Miley sings “We run things, things don’t run we” and Flourgon is heard saying, “We run things. Things no run we.”

According to Flourgon’s lawyers, Miley “owes the basis of its chart-topping popularity and its highly-lucrative success to plaintiff May’s protected, unique, creative and original content.” The Jamaican artist is also requesting that any future sales or performances be halted.

He is naming Miley, Mike WiLL Made-It, manager Larry Rudolph and RCA in the lawsuit.

    These songs are as similar as shoe and a llama. The modicum of the “copyright” is so ordinary that anyone under he influence of alcohol, rap culture and lack of correct form of the English language could come up with all of this.
