R&B singer Robin Thicke has filed a lawsuit to protect his single “Blurred Lines” from Marvin Gaye’s family and Funkadelic’s copyrights owners, reports the NY Post. Music producer Pharrell Williams and rapper T.I., real name Clifford Harris Jr., are also named as plaintiffs in the lawsuit. The Funkadelic’s rights owners claim there are similarities between “Blurred Lines” and a song they own the rights to.
Gaye’s family say “Blurred Lines” borrows heavily from Marvin’s hit single “Got to Give it Up.”
Singer and reality TV star Toni Braxton dined with friends at Mr. Chow Restaurant in Beverly Hills, California. Toni wore her own hair in short curls with blond highlights. Thank God that Toni and other celebrities are making it fashionable for women to wear their own hair again.

Troubled singer Rihanna may have had a change of heart and decided not to sue British clothier Topshop over their unauthorized use of her likeness on a tank top.
According to The Sun Daily, Rihanna filed a $5 million lawsuit against Topshop after months of negotiations failed last year. Rihanna was upset that Topshop sold oversized tank tops bearing her image without her consent.
In reality, Rihanna was probably more unhappy about the unflattering image that Topshop used.
Songbird Alicia Keys was all smiles as she stepped out for some shopping in SoHo in New York City on Wednesday.

A songwriter claims Keys stole elements of a song he wrote in 1962. Maybe Keys thought no one would notice the similarities between her single and a song written before she was born?
