Maybe don’t pop bottles just yet, you two- you got a Hungarian on your back!
Beyonce and Jay Z have apparently outraged Hungarian singer Monika Miczura, (aka Mitsou) who claims the two plus producer Timbaland ripped off a Roma folk song she recorded in 1995 for the first 13 seconds of their gigantic hit “Drunk in Love.”
That’s a big claim, lady!
Miczura wants “Drunk in Love” put on the shelf for good, saying that she never gave them permission and that they are distorting the message of her song. While Miczura’s song is about hopelessness, Beyonce twisted it “to evoke foreign eroticism alongside the sexually intense lyrics.”
According to TMZ, Mitsou says the bastardization of her song, called “Bajba, Bajba Pelem” was done by digitally manipulating her voice with Auto-Tune and various cuts. She wants some sweet, sweet cash for damages done and is also asking a judge to prohibit anyone from playing the song as long as it still has her voice.
What do you think? Does this seem like another person trying to tap into the BeyJay fortune? Or does this feel like a real claim?

Taylor Swift might be done writing about herself…for the time being!
“I’m really loving collaboration right now,” Swift told Billboard during a quick stop in Los Angeles to support her song “Sweeter Than Fiction” from the film “One Chance..”
“I see it as a bit of an apprenticeship. I want to be around people who love writing songs and have done it for years. Every time I’m in a studio I’m learning, like how to build a drum track, and getting a new perspective on things. It’s so thrilling to keep learning on your fifth album.
“As soon as (an album) comes out I’m figuring out what the next one will be. It’s gotten to the point where each one is a reinvention, which is what I like best. I like it when it sounds new and people don’t know where you’re going to go next.”
In case you didn’t know, “Sweeter Than Fiction,” her end-credits song for the story about “Britain’s Got Talent” winner Paul Potts, received a Golden Globe nomination on Dec. 12; she is also up for four Grammys. Sounds like doing songs about OTHER people has its perks, no?
“It can get pretty intense writing (personal) details — that’s a very vulnerable place to put yourself in. But there’s a specific type of thrill you get from that recounting of your life. There’s a different kind of thrill you get hoping you have accurately portrayed someone else’s emotions that you’re seeing so well done by these actors, James Corden and Mackenzie Crook. The actors did such a great job it was fairly easy to get inside their heads.”
What do you think of Taylor’s new mode of songwriting?

Britney Spears looks tired, most likely because she’s hard at work recording her new album!
Photographers caught a glimpse of Miss Spears exiting an LA studio today in sweatpants and a long sweater. She’s been in high gear working on her new album, which I’m definitely curious to hear. Again, I’m glad Britney is putting her nose to the grindstone, but sweatpants? Have we all given up, or is it kinda endearing? THOUGHTS?
