Usher Ripped Off Homer Simpson For "OMG"?![Video]

 

Usher Accused Of Plagiarizing  Homer Simpson For Hit Song

R&B superstar Usher has been accused of ripping off another legendary artist for his hit song “OMG”.

According to published reports, Usher is accused of stealing the hook of the Pop chart hit from a 2003 episode of the Simpsons.

The “coincidence”, which was discovered by a DJ in Jackson, Mississippi uses the hook where Usher sings:

“Honey got a booty like pow,pow,pow. Honey got some boobies like wow, wow, wow.”

And compares it to the 2003 Simpsons Christmas episode where Homer sings:

“Christmas in December, wow wow wow. Give me tons of presents, now now now.”

The controversy has created such a buzz that fans have even posted a YouTube video to point out the similarities.

Although it seems crazy that Usher would rip off a cartoon character for a hit song, one woman is claiming that he did steal her hit song in 2003, when he and Alicia Keys came together for the hit song “Caught Up”.

As previously reported, Wadena Pyatt filed a lawsuit against Usher and singer Alicia Keys, claiming after she signed a record contract with Alicia Keys’ MBK Entertainment label in 2003, she wrote the song for inclusion on her debut album; but instead the song was used on Usher’s album Confessions and she was not listed as one of the songwriters.

Check out the mash-up below and let us know what you think, did Usher rip off Homer Simpson?

  • cmp2010

    i figured he stole them lyrics from a cartoon lol, those are the 2 corniest lyrics in the whole wack A$$ song

  • Peppa

    I really don’t know about this one. But anyway, it’s not stealing a song, when you only use ONE WORD from the so called STOLEN SONG. WOW is the only word they have in common. Even the melody is not the same.

  • Jay

    Homer’s voice seems to crack in that song, has he always sounded that bad on The Simpsons.

  • GEE

  • ShawtyWhereYouAt

    I like it when Usher says “BOOBIES”

  • Rena

    The song is so ridiculously juvenile it seems fitting it came from a cartoon.
