Kelly Clarkson replies to Jimmy Eat World plagiarism accusation
Kelly Clarkson has denied that she copied Jimmy Eat World on a recent single.
Similarities between the singer's track 'Heartbeat Song' and the rock band's 2001 'The Middle' were noted recently.
However, Clarkson told Rolling Stone that there was no intentional plagiarism.
She said: "I didn't write the song, I just sang it. But I didn't catch that. Nobody behind the scenes did. What's funny is that I was a huge fan of that Jimmy Eat World album!
Clarkson added that she felt the recent copyright ruling regarding Pharrell Williams and Robin Thicke's 'Blurred Line' was unfair.
She said: "I felt so bad for Pharrell when he got sued - he's a huge fan of Marvin Gaye, and you know he didn't mean to rip him off," she said. "And he's the sweetest guy ever. It sucks."
