Well I think it's false because u cant rele steal a whole song just by taking "hey hey you you i wanna be you *boyfriend* from a band. Plus the band she "supposedly" stole from was never even heard of until they tried to sue her. Besides..the song's melody is way different anyway.

i heard about that and i totally agree with u guys this whole thing is so stupid....it feels like another one of those "let's see who we can sue next" kinda of things.....it's agrvating...not only that if it wasn't as famous as it was do really think that they'd be having this issue?....it's so agrivating...

hmm i had no idea :/
did she really?
that's kind of depressing i mean usually artists that do that these days in my opinion have no creativity but Avril of all people :[ i hope it's not true.

but anyway, i like the original and rmx of Girlfriend. i was not expecting Lil Momma to be in it honestly

I looked it up and you can check on Wikipedia (whether it's really reliable or not is another question). But it says there that


"Girlfriend" infringes on their 1979 song "I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend", originally performed by The Rubinoos.


There's also other allegations there, but I'm pretty sure it's just all coincidence. Many songs have the same topic in the lyrics anyway and it I agree this does seem like one of those 'let's sue each other then what' type of things.

And, I'd just like to say that the remix isn't really all that. I'm not a fan of it.

i agree with krizxjaga,...there are many songs that have the same topic in the lyrics and there are also songs that have the same title..i think they we're just trying to destroy avril's career and her ability to compose songs..GIRLFRIEND is a big hit..we even use these song for our cheerdance competition..=)

I definitely don't believe this, well yeah, a little coz i heard the part of that song where the vocal sings "hey, hey, you, you, i don't like you boyfriend!!!"..... but i still don't believe it coz Avril has originality, and would never try to steal a song..

I really dont think that she stole it....
Its true that the band "The Rubinoos" from 1979 had a song "I wanna be your Boyfriend"
But Im sure its just a coincidence cause why wud Avril steal a song....
I searched about that too and they said they even tried to sue Avril with everything she got.......>.<

I actually have heard that "Iwanna be your Boyfriend" song....
Sounds like Country folk`s music.....lol

Avril wud NEVER steal a song....
