It would go on to be recorded by The X Factor's season 10 winner Matt Cardle, appearing on his debut studio album Letters in 2011. Fast forward to Sheeran's 2014 album X, which contains the hit "Photograph," a song that shares more than a few parallels to Harrington and Leonard's work.
"The songs' similarities reach the very essence of the work," the lawsuit states, according to Billboard. "The similarities go beyond substantial, which is itself sufficient to establish copyright infringement, and are in fact striking. The similarity of words, vocal style, vocal melody, melody, and rhythm are clear indicators, among other things, that 'Photograph' copies 'Amazing.'" Read morehere.

The suit cites "graffiti and persons with heads down," 'red persons with eyes obscured," 'side-lit ominous figures" and 'the grass scene" as being suspiciously reminiscent of Matthew Fulks' film Palinoia.
Fulks said he passed the film along to Bryan Younce, an executive at Beyonce's label Columbia Records, in July 2015. Given the timing and alleged access to his work, Fulks believes his ideas inspired visual elements in Lemonade--particularly the widely viewed trailer which aired weeks before the album debuted on HBO.
The filmmaker seeks a portion of profits earned from Lemonade. Watch Palinoihere.

Troy Ave was arraigned on May 30 in New York and could be charged with murder after an alleged fist fight backstage at a T.I. concert went terribly wrong, according to the New York Daily News.
Prosecutors say the rapper, aka Roland Collins, "recklessly fired a gun five times in a crowded venue" with no concern for the consequences. Meanwhile, his defense attorney Scott Leemon says otherwise.
"The most important thing in this case is that Troy Ave is an actual victim here," Leemon told AllHipHop. "He didn't shoot himself, he didn't shoot his lifelong friend and bodyguard, Ronald McPhatter." Read morehere.
The video was shot at East Side High School in Paterson, New Jersey, the school that Fetty Wap attended, and dropped out of. The clip is framed as a dropout-made-good story, and title cards encourage students to "find their own path."

"I went back to my old high school because I love my city," Wap said in a statement. "I wanted to show the students of Paterson that someone who walked those same hallways they walk every day and sat in the same classrooms shown in the video has become successful. If I can do it they can do it too." Read more

On the island of St. Kitts, there is a law that prohibits cursing on stage. 50 Cent allegedly knew about the law but still dropped a curse in the song. After his appearance, authorities came and charged 50 Cent with using explicit language in public.
In a statement released to Rolling Stone, the rapper's representative said since there were no clean versions of his tracks, profanity-laden were used. "[Curtis "50 Cent"] Jackson was only booked to host the show, when he arrived at the festival organizers asked him to perform, he obliged and used the DJ they had there," his representative told Rolling Stone. "Unfortunately, they didn't have the clean version to his tracks, so there were profanities used during his performance." Read morehere.

DeLonge first became interested in aliens (not the term he would use, by the way) in junior high. "I just had some free time on my hands and I found myself at the school library looking for books on the subject matter," he told Mic. "[In] the beginnings of my career with [Blink-182], you have a lot of free time in the van, traveling across the country for 12 months, so I found myself getting a lot of really interesting books that challenged the way I thought about stuff."
But why focus on it now? Essentially, what he began learning about extraterrestrial life unearthed more and more that he needed to study in order to fully grasp the subject matter. "It's something I've always wanted to do," he explained. "I've always had a passion for space and the future. But when you dive into this type of material, it's a lot more than just science and technology. It has to do with religion and cosmology and it has to do with politics and secrecy. So it's a pretty fantastic ride when you start studying this stuff. You'll find yourself trying to challenge your belief system. This project was a good way to bring it to the world in a more elevated way." Read the original reporthere.

"When she was 14, we met her-my parents and I signed her, and one thing about Christina and her family, is that she holds her faith so closely to her. It's not about her religion, and it's not about good deeds. It's just that she had faith. And I don't really understand how this happened, but I would like to dedicate this next song to her."
