Lady Gaga’s ‘Born This Way’ sounds like ‘Be Happy’ to E-Tribe

Composer for SNSD’s ‘Be Happy’, E-Tribe talked about the issues pertaining to the plagiarism controversy involving Lady Gaga’s new song ‘Born This Way’. Lady Gaga’s ‘Born This Way’ was released about a year after SNSD’s ‘Be Happy’, which was part of the girls’ 2nd Album ‘Oh!’. On March 11th, E-Tribe said, “This morning when people around us said there is a news article mentioning Lady Gaga’s ‘Born This Way’ plagiarized SNSD’s ‘Be Happy’, we immediately went to check out the song. The atmosphere and feel of the song is rather similar”.
E-Tribe added, “As the song progresses, honestly, the arrangement is also similar. Therefore, currently, we are trying to get more information from representative of Lady Gaga’s domestic publishing company. Just wondering what would be the reaction if Korean artistes’ songs were released later than Lady Gaga’s”.

  1. Well it’s not like korean artists don’t copy english songs. If you guys listen to SHINee’s “Juliette” it sounds ALOT like Corbin Bleu’s “Deal With It”

  2. Don’t mean to sound biased but there are hearsays that Lady Gaga’s styles whether it be fashion, song writing, or music are copied from other famous or unknown artists.

    Anyways we seldom see artists who are 100% original coz majority of them have tendency to get inspirations to other famous idols. They just alter it a bit or add other elements to it to call it their own.

    Take for example Wondergirl’s image when performing “Nobody”. They remind me of the girl group (forgot the name) where Diana Ross came from before she went solo. (I’m not saying they are copying the girl group but the sytle is somewhat similar).

    ooohhh, i see. but don’t get me wrong, i LOVE Shinee! and @anonymous, yea you’re right, they’re not all original.
