Beyonce accused of "Music Cover-Up"! Is being sued for $150K

http://www.netscape.com/viewstory/20...%2F&frame=true

I've learned that our background and circumstances may have influenced who we are, but we are responsible for who we become.

I've learned that we are responsible for what we do, no matter how we feel.

I've learned that either you control your attitude or it controls you.

I've learned that sometimes when I'm angry I have the right to be angry, but that doesn't give me the right to be cruel.

I've learned that maturity has more to do with what types of experiences you've had and what you've learned from them, and less to do with how many years you have lived.

I've learned that you shouldn't be so eager to find out a secret. It could change your life forever.

hmm, not a smart move by Beyoncé.

Her version of the song is truly awful.

Des'ree version is one of my all time favourite songs. Simply beautiful!

Just another sign of Beyonce's lack of professionalism in the music industry.

You know when you do a cover of a Victoria Beckham song and it sounds better with Victoria Beckham, that's a sign to stop doing cover songs.

There's more emotion in Des'ree's first note than in Beyonce's whole version and the synthesized sound of the orchestra sounds so bad it almost sounds midi.

It really is a beautiful song and Beyonce basically Sanjayaed it.
It sounds so cheap the way she did it.

That Des'ree version is absolutely amazing. Just a great song. It's too bad Beyonce had to try to cover it...and to think she intentionally went behind Des'ree's back after negotiations had failed I hope she gets sued for a lot more than the $150 000 mentioned.

$150,000 isn't a whole lot but it makes Des'ree's claim more believeable to me. It doesn't seem to be only about money as much as it would if she was asking for millions. Shame on Beyonce, she knew what she was doing was wrong and she did it anyway, now she has to pay.
