Radiohead's publishers have spoken out in the wake of claims that Lana Del Rey copied parts of their song Creep, saying that band have no plans to take the singer to court.

A tweet posted by Lana on Monday January 8 claimed that Thom Yorke and his bandmates would only accept 100 per cent of the publishing for her song Get Free, which they say bares striking similarities to their 1993 hit.

The singer also reportedly told the audience at one of her concerts that the alleged lawsuit could result in the song being removed from her most recent album, Lust for Life.

Speaking to music website Pitchfork, a spokesperson for publisher Warner/Chappell said:

“As Radiohead's music publisher, it's true that we've been in discussions since August of last year with Lana Del Rey's representatives.”

They went onto explain how while a request was made to credit the writers of Creep, the claim that Radiohead would only accept 100 per cent of publishing was completely false.

“It's clear that the verses of Get Free use musical elements found in the verses of Creep and we've requested that this be acknowledged in favour of all writers of Creep.”

“To set the record straight, no lawsuit has been issued and Radiohead have not said they 'will only accept 100%' of the publishing of Get Free.”

Lana has yet to respond to the latest development.


Lana Del Rey has found herself in middle of a messy lawsuit after Radiohead claimed the singer copied parts of their biggest selling hit, Creep.

Thom Yorke and his bandmates believe Lana's track Get Free, which features on her album Lust for Life, was heavily influenced by the 1993 single.

It's been reported that both parties are trying to settle the dispute outside of court.

“Both teams are trying to thrash it out behind the scenes to prevent it from going to court," a source told The Sun Online

“It’s understood that Radiohead’s team are hoping for the band to either receive compensation or be credited on the list of songwriters to receive royalties.”

However, with an agreement still not reached, it now looks likely that the artists will let the justice system run its course.

Addressing the dispute in a tweet posted over the weekend, Lana claimed that Radiohead's legal team would only accept a deal for 100 per cent of the song's royalties.

This isn't the first time the band have found themselves at the centre of a lawsuit over the song.

Radiohead were actually sued by The Hollies over Creep's resemblance to their song, The Air That I Breathe.

The Hollies own the legal battle and Radiohead were ordered to hand over a percentage of royalties and credit the writers.

Oh, the irony!



It's a fact of life that people change when they age – some for the better, and some definitely for the worse.

We looked back at these stars to see how different they look from just a few short years ago. Get ready to be SHOCKED…


Calvin Harris

How can someone go from being so nerdy to being SO hot. Taylor is one lucky lady. 


George Clooney

Eyebrows! He was a bit of a geek back in the day but George has aged well. He even won sexiest man alive in 1997 AND 2006. 


Nicole Kidman

That HAIR! She had some seriously fluffy gruaig in her teenage years but we think Nicole has aged beautifully. 


Alec Baldwin

He actually used to be quite hot. What happened, Alec??


Pierce Brosnan

He sported a nasty 'tash in his younger days – but we'll let it go because the Navan-man is still our favourite James Bond. 


Oprah Winfrey

The weight-loss majorly changed Queen Oprah and we think she is definitely looking better these days.


Miley Cyrus

Miley has gone a bit cray-cray over the past few years trying to rub off the Hannah Montana image. She most certainly succeeded too!


Lana Del Rey

Woah. We didn't expect this one. From bleach blonde hair to gorgeous red locks, Lana has definitely changed for the better.


Kelly Osbourne

The rock 'n' roll wild child has dramatically changed over the years – going from black hair and questionable make up to a fab purple 'do and clothes to-die-for. 



James Franco appeared on The Howard Stern Show earlier today and the 36-year-old actor didn’t hold back when discussing the relationship he has with 29-year-old singer Lana Del Rey.

Telling listeners that the pair hang out in her apartment a lot and take scenic trips together raised a few eyebrows in the studio and there was no way Howard was going to let those revelations slide.

When pressed by the shock jock as to whether the pair have become intimate, the Spring Breakers star said he would: “have sex with her music.” Er, right.

Eager to clarify his apparent obsession with the singer, James, who has posted numerous photos of her on his Instagram account, said: “There’s a weird thing with creative types. Sometimes I love a person’s work. But all this whatever sexual attraction is for the person in the work.”

On the show to promote his new film, The Interview, James insisted that despite wanting to have sex with her work, the relationship between the pair is purely platonic, saying: “Our dynamic is that we’re just kind of friends and get along really well.”

Hmmm, we’re not exactly convinced.



James Franco is full of surprises lately, especially when it comes to his love life (we won’t comment on that Instagram incident). But this latest rumour even shocked us!

According to reports, the actor is rumoured to be dating famous singer, Lana Del Rey. This doesn’t come long after her public split with long-term boyfriend, Barrie James O’Neill.

Lana spoke recently about her split in an interview with Fashion magazine: “It’s been a tenuous and tumultuous three years … It was very rewarding, but very difficult. Trying to get consistency and normality within the dynamic of that relationship has been impossible. He’s unwell and I’m unwell in some ways, and psychologically we’ve been through a lot together.”

If that wasn’t enough, Lana also spoke of how she would love to find love with someone again, and even talked about the prospect of marriage: “I would love to find someone I could share my life with and be married to.”

James and Lana have been fuelling rumours of a possible romance, since they started posting photos of each other on their social media accounts.

Lana was also spotted at red carpet at the premiere of Franco’s new movie, Child Of God.




Well Lana is full of surprises, especially when it comes to her personal life, as the Ride singer revealed a lot about her sex life in a candid interview for Complex magazine.

The topic of sex rose when Lana spoke about her song “F—King My Way Up To The Top”. The singer explained that it literally meant that she slept had with a lot of men in the music industry.

“….commentary, like, ‘I know what you think of me,’ and I’m alluding to that. You know, I have slept with a lot of guys in the industry but none of them helped me get my record deals. Which is annoying.”

Lana didn’t stop there as the singer went on to reveal that she prefers “physical love” when it comes to her relationships.

“I like a hands-on love. [Pauses] How can I say this without getting into too much trouble? I like a tangible, passionate love. For me if it isn’t physical, I’m not interested…Everything else is so hard; hopefully love is the one thing that is actually fun.”

Lana also opened up about her critics and said that she doesn’t really care about what they think about her.

“The good thing about catching so much grief from critics is that you literally do not f–king care. It put me in a mind frame where I expect things not to go right, because they generally don’t.”

Kurt Cobain’s daughter Frances Bean has taken to Twitter to tell Lana Del Rey to stop romanticising the premature death of musicians.

Lana recently gave an interview and when asked by the interviewer as to whether she finds the deaths of music heroes such as Kurt Cobain and Amy Winehouse glamorous, she replied: “I don’t know. Ummm, yeah … I don’t want to have to keep doing this but I am.”

Understandably so, Frances was compelled to call the singer out on her views:

“@LanaDelRey the death of young musicians isn’t something to romanticize (cont)…  I’ll never know my father because he died young & it becomes a desirable feat because ppl like u think it’s ‘cool'(cont)… Well, it’s f**king not. Embrace life, because u only get one life. The ppl u mentioned wasted that life.Don’t be 1 of those ppl…@LanaDelRey ur too talented to waste it away. (sic).”

Frances has since deleted her tweet and replaced it with: “I’m not attacking anyone. I have no animosity towards Lana, I was just trying to put things in perspective from personal experience.”

Lana replied to Frances late last night saying: “It’s all good. He was asking me a lot about your dad. I said I liked him because he was talented, not because he died young. The other half of what I said wasn’t really related to the people he mentioned. I don’t find that part of music glam either.”

We’re glad to see Lana talking sense at last!



Lana Del Rey has revealed today that she and her long-time boyfriend, Barrie James O’Neil have split.

The singer revealed that they were no longer together when questioned on rumours of a possible engagement between the two of them.

“We are currently not together. He is a wonderful person. But there are some things with which he has to deal. I will not explain it in detail. This was hard on our relationship, I no longer felt free. We’ll see how it goes.”

Lana and Barrie have been together, since they starting dating back in August 2011.

We wish them the best, it’s never easy to end a relationship.




Lana Del Rey has voiced her thoughts on the controversial interview in which she said: “I wish I was dead already.”

The singer is not at all happy with The Guardian journalist, Tim Jonze (who she mistakes for Alexis in her tweets), who conducted the interview.

Lana took to her Twitter to voice her unhappiness, writing in a series of three tweets: “I regret trusting the guardian- i didn’t want to do an interview but the journalist was persistent. Alexis was masked as a fan … but was hiding sinister ambitions and angles Maybe he’s actually the boring one looking for something interesting to write about … his leading questions about death and persona were calculated.”


However, the journalist wasn’t going to take this lying down and wrote an article in which he said: “It’s not uncommon for interviwees to read what they’ve actually said, be horrified and decide it’s the writer’s fault … Besides the fact that Lana doesn’t actually remember who interviewed her, there are a number of things about her statement that sound iffy to me.”

It doesn’t look like this controversy is going to go away any time soon!








Lana Del Rey has opened up for the first time about the real reason behind her on-stage breakdown in Dublin last year.

The Ride singer said she was overwhelmed with emotions and ended up crying during her live performance in front of fans.

Lana said she was suffering at the time with an illness that the doctors were unable to diagnose.

“I’d been sick on tour for about two years with this medical anomaly that doctors couldn’t figure out. That’s a big part of my life: I just feel really sick a lot of the time and can’t figure out why. I’d gotten these shots in Russia, where we’d just been.”

Lana then spoke of her Dublin performance and revealed that it all became too much for her and she started to cry.

“It was just heavy. It’s just heavy performing for people who really care about you, and you don’t really care that much about yourself sometimes. I thought it was sad. I thought my position was sad. I thought it was sad to be in Ireland singing for people who really cared when I wasn’t sure if I did.”

We hope Lana is in a better place now as it sounds like she had really hard time in the past.
