Teen star MILEY CYRUS has hit back at accusations she ripped off a Los Angeles
band’s song – because she doesn’t write any of her own music.
Los Angeles band Lustra fired claims Cyrus’ song Rockstar is a carbon copy of
their Scotty Doesn’t Know tune on Wednesday (14May08).
The band – whose track appeared on the soundtrack to 2004 movie Eurotrip –
was alerted to Cyrus’ song-similarities by fans, and has since determined the
tunes are virtually the same, despite mismatching lyrics.
A spokesperson for Cyrus insists, “She doesn’t write the songs – she sings
them. We have referred this to Disney.”
According to The New York Post, the band “is considering various options to
rectify this situation”.
