In keeping with the recent theme of copycats, here's another suspiciously similar pair for your consideration...
Kelly Clarkson's latest single, 'Already Gone', is causing a mild furore at the moment following the singer's own admission that it bears more than a passing similarity to Beyoncé's 'Halo'.
Exhibit A - 'Halo' :
Exhibit B - 'Already Gone' :
Pretty glaring similarities, right?
Well, as I say, La Clarkson herself has acknowledged this and is pointing the finger of blame at Ryan Tedder, who penned both tracks. She insists she only heard 'Halo' after the release of her album and phoned Tedder to ask him why he had basically flogged two variations of the same track.
She's apparently less than delighted that her label have chosen to release it as a single. I reckon Ryan Tedder should watch his bank. A Kelly Clarkson scorned is not a pretty sight.
