“Blurred Lines” Singer “Got to Give It Up”, Beyonce’s Pledge and Orlando Wanted By Police: Celebrity Wrap Up

“Blurred Lines” Singer Has “Got to Give It Up”   The family of R&B legend Marvin Gaye had their day in court for the second time and again walked away victorious.  A federal appeals court on Wednesday upheld a former ruling in the copyright infringement of one his songs.   Singers Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams collaborated for the 2013 #1 hit “Blurred Lines” which two courts have now agreed was copied illegally from Gaye’s 1977 hit “Got to Give It Up”.  The Atlanta Black Star reports, “In a split decision from a three-judge panel, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the family of the late soul singer is entitled to the $5.3 million it was awarded” earlier by a lower court.  The appeal court ruling was a harsh blow to the music industry and could have far reaching impact on future issues of copyright and creative license.  The appeals court judge says the two songs resembled each other in style and “Blurred Lines’ and ‘Got to Give It Up’ are not objectively similar. They differ in melody, harmony, and rhythm. Yet by refusing to compare the two works, the majority establishes a dangerous precedent that strikes a devastating blow to future musicians and composers everywhere.”  Rapper T.I. also performs on the hit record but is not being held legally responsible in the copyright case.  Along with the $5.3 million the courts have awarded, the Gaye family will also received 50% interest in royalties from “Blurred Lines”.

Beyonce Vows to Help 120,000 People   Her fans would argue that her music has changed the world of music forever, but Queen Bey still wants to change the world in a more tangible way.  The “Formation” singer is joining forces with Gucci to bring water to people who have literally been dying of thirst.  Entertainment site ThatGrapeJuice reports “Beyonce‘s latest act of altruism is to save the lives of thousands in Burundi” by building “80 new water  wells that over 120,000 people will have access to.”  The singer’s  BeyGood Foundation says “the first 35 wells have now been completed” in a land where “8 out of 10 people live on less than $1.25 a day” and the top cause of death in children under the age of 5 years old is “Endemic water-born diseases.”

Actor Orlando Brown Is a Wanted Man   If you happen to see “That’s So Raven” actor Orlando Brown anywhere, tell him the police are looking for him.  Entertainment news site The Jasmine Brand says “Reportedly, a Southern California judge issued an arrest warrant for the 30-year-old That’s So Raven star after he did not make it to his hearing that was scheduled for Wednesday.”   Brown was scheduled to be back in court following his arrest in January after police were called to the 30-year old actor’s home.  An incident with his girlfriend lead to Brown being arrested on charges of battery, possession of a controlled substance and resisting a police officer.

For this week’s look at celebrity life, that’s a wrap!
