Taylor Swift's Judge Used Her Lyrics To Dismiss The Lawsuit Against Her
Taylor Swift legally shook it off this week.
A California judge ruled Swift didn't steal lyrics for “Shake It Off” from singer Jesse Braham's 2013 song “Haters Gone Hate.”
The $42 million suit was recently brought against Taylor after Braham, who goes by the stage name Jesse Graham, claimed his lyrics were too similar to Swift's lyrics to be a coincidence. His lyrics read,
Haters gone hate, playas gone play, playas gone play. Watch out for them fakers, they'll fake you every day.
And her lyrics read,
Cause the players gonna play, play, play, play, play and the haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate.
In case you're wondering, the songs sound nothing alike.
In her ruling, the judge, referencing Swift's "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" and "Bad Blood," reportedly wrote,
At present, the court is not saying that Braham can never, ever, ever get his case back in court. But, for now, we have got problems, and the court is not sure Braham can solve them.
