The songwriters of a 1970s song by The Rubinoos have filed a lawsuit against Avril Lavigne for allegedly stealing their song “I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend.” Avril claims she wrote her song called “Girlfriend” which strangely sounds just like theirs.
It’s been reported that Avril claims she’s never heard their song before. This also isn’t the first time Avril has been accused of plagiarism. Canadian singer Chantal Kreviazuk claims Avril also stole from her ass.
The CEO of Nettwerk Music Group, Avril’s management, said, “We will try and settle for costs that will be less than defending so we’d be further ahead. Emotionally, it sucks. But at the end of the day you have to take that out of it.”
Those songs are basically the same. Hilarious! Avril seriously has the songwriting skills of a 1970s folk artist. She’s fucking Woody Gurthrie reincarnated!
