TMZ has reported that Justin Timberlake’s label is being sued for a record off of the singer’s 20/20 Experience album. According to the site, two members of the ’70s R&B group, Sly, Slick & Wicked, filed a lawsuit against Universal Music Group for illegally using a vocal sample on “Suit & Tie.” The group claims that the label paid to use the instrumental sample of their record “Sho’ Nuff” — which was produced by James Brown, but they didn’t get the proper rights to use vocals from the track. Meanwhile, the label licensed “Suit & Tie” to Budweiser for an ad campaign, which resulted in the band including Anheuser-Busch in the lawsuit.

Clay Aiken has some strong feelings about American Idol, and the show’s final season. Who am I kidding, he is bashing the show. The singer turned politician took to Twitter on Wednesday to react to the final season premiere. Clay wrote, “Well…now I know why the ratings are down. Oh good Lord…those boring ass responses from the judges!? Where is Simon when you need him!? That guy needs a hook to pull him off stage. It’s VERY clear now that @SimonCowell was the reason @AmericanIdol was a hit. I’ve watched root canals more entertaining than these judges.” He later explained his strong opinions writing, “When your favorite team that you’ve cheered for for years happens to play a shitty game, you’re absolutely allowed to be upset about it. We’re all more critical of the things we care about most. When you really love something you only want the best for it, and you have high expectations from those you know are capable of it.”
