Rapper 50 Cent Sued For Allegedly Stealing Song Sample

 

Rapper 50 Cent has been sued by Robert Poindexter of The Persuaders for allegedly stealing a sample snippet of his band’s song, Love Gonna Pack Up And Walk Out without permission, for the song Redrum, which he released online for free…

Fiddy argues that because he didn’t charge for the track, he does not have to abide by copyright laws. REALLY?

The suit reads:

“Fifty Cents [sic] has not denied the infringement, but appears to be basing his defense solely on a frivolous and immaterial claim that the illegal version is not being commercially exploited, but is given away for free.”

Robert Poindexter via the lawsuit is asking for an unknown amount of statutory damages and $600,000 in punitive, plus interest.

Actress Gabrielle Union Talks About Dating Dreamers, Dinner At The Obamas & Dwyane Wade On Chelsea Lately

 

Last night,Actress Gabrielle Union got people laughing as she sat down with Chelsea Handler-talking about the losers she’s dated, the dinner party she had at the White House with the Obamas, her boo Dwayne Wade attempting to call the shots on her movie set among other things…

Check out the the excerpts below as well as the video.

On her character’s relationship in the movie ‘Think Like a Man’
In this movie we’ve been together for about nine years and he’s sort of never progressed past the college stage. Besides the raggedy couch, we’ve got futons, bongs everywhere and he doesn’t have a good job but he’s perfectly content. So I’m trying to get him to step up in our relationship and get him to step up in his life.

Does this remind you of any of your relationships in real life? 
Well, the bong and not having any ambition that is really recent. I dated a lot of dreamers; Some people call them dreamers, my parents call them losers.

How do you break that pattern?
You date Dwayne Wade. That was sort of how it broke for me because it was pretty much in my teens into my thirties.

On being Buddies with the Obamas
Yeah, it’s one of those random things where people are like, “Who should we invite to the dinner party? Well, there’s POTUS AND the FLOTUS,” which is weird because we have mutual friends. We’ve been to their house; you guys might have heard of the White House. I guess I was thinking that they would have Pâté and this super fancy stuff so we’re trying to eat before we go, just in case they didn’t have good food. I’m from Omaha and [Dwayne] is from Chicago and we’re like, “We need to eat” just in case they got too grand.

So we get there, and he’s got Jay-Z playing and Janet Jackson, potato salad and baked beans and we’re like, “Yeah!” So we ate again.

On if Dwayne Wade was on set a lot because the NBA lockout
Yeah, he went to being one of the dreamers I had dated before like unemployed and just around.

Was he grabbing you cappuccinos and stuff like that?
No, because I went from being one of the stars of the movie to Dwayne Wade is here! So he was getting all the good treatment but I think he really believed he was [Martin] Scorsese. He was next to the director and I could hear him; sometimes if we’re in the video village where the producers and directors are, you can hear them. They’re supposed to be silent and I could hear him say, “I don’t believe her.” What are you talking about? Your Gatorade commercial has prepared you and now you’re Scorsese?
