Justin Bieber And Skrillex Sued Over ‘Sorry’ | Music News

Justin Bieber, Skrillex


We are sorry to inform you that the mega smash-hit “Sorry” is just a big fat plagiarism.


Sorry, it’s not.


Or maybe it is, considering Justin Bieber and Skrillex have just been sued by White Hinterland over claims they used her vocal loop without permission. The American indie pop singer reported that the duo took the “unique female vocal riff” from her 2014 song “Ring The Bell” and used it for the intro of their collaboration, and then in five other parts of the song.



Listening to White’s song, it’s quite clear that that infectious loop that we grew to love is not Justin’s after all. So we are sorry, but “Sorry” is a plagiarism. Probably not that massive plagiarism, but – especially considering how huge the song has been – it would be fair to pay a genius idea to its right owner.

I speak as loud as the volume I listen to music, and this is probably symptomatic of my love for pop music: I love pop music because it is often unapologetically in-your-face, it shouts rather than tell, it drives you crazy. And after 21 years loving pop music, I think I’ve completely gone mad. It all started in 1997, when my mum bought me my first cassette: needless to say, it was ‘Barbie Girl’ by Aqua, and from that point on, it’s been a never-ending loving relationship between me and music. I study, work and live life part-time, and listen to music full-time.
