Did Minaj and her producers steal the song?
TMZ reports that Clive Tanaka is suing Nicki Minaj over her hit song, "Starships." Tanaka claims that "Starships" is identical to a song he released a year before Minaj's. He filed a federal suit in Chicago this week against Minaj, the song's three writers and the song's producer, claiming copyright infringement on his 2011 song, "Neu Chicago."
