The Bellamy Brothers Are Planning to Sue Britney Spears

In 1979, the Bellamy Brothers sweetly sang, "If I said you had a beautiful body, would you hold it against me?" The musical similarities between that song, "Hold It Against Me," and Britney Spears's recent single "Hold It Against Me" might not pop out at you, but the Brothers are planning to file a multi-million-dollar lawsuit against Spears for plagiarism, boldly taking credit for one awesomely cheesy pickup line. Sixty-year-old David Bellamy, explained: "Howard and I have no personal beef with Britney. She’s a talented gal. But professionally we feel completely ripped off." [Daily Mail UK]
