Why Will.I.Am And Pharrell Williams Are Beefing

Published

on

Music producers will.i.am and Pharrell are reportedly beefing over the use of the phrase, “I AM.” Will claims he owns the copyright for the phrase, and believes Pharrell’s new “i am OTHER” brand infringes on that copyright, so he’s taking legal action.

According to Rolling Stone, Will.i.am believes that Pharrell would be using his “i am OTHER” brand on clothing and other items in a manner similar to the goods that bear will’s own “I AM” logo. “The registration of the mark … is likely to dilute the I AM mark and the WILL.I.AM mark,” court documents read.

Pharrell fired back at the Black Eyed Peas member, issuing this statement to HipHollywood:

“I am disappointed that Will, a fellow artist, would file a case against me. I am someone who likes to talk things out and, in fact, I attempted to do just that on many occasions. I am surprised in how this is being handled and I am confident that Will’s trademark claims will ultimately be found to be as meritless and ridiculous as I do.”

Speaking of swagger-jacking, will recently admitted to stealing another producer’s beat and using it without getting it cleared through the proper channels. Maybe he’s just bitter and taking it out on Pharrell.

DMX Is Clean, Sober And Plans To Stay That Way!

It’s a new dawn, a new day … DMX is sober!

The rapper’s lengthy history with drug abuse has been well documented by his many arrest and sometimes bizarre behavior, but Dark Man X is putting all of that behind him.

X has been in a treatment facility since late August and has been doing really well. The rapper opted for rehab instead of house arrest in order to improve his chances of kicking his drug habit and it looks like it may have worked.

Sources tell TMZ, the program is almost complete, but x will probably stay another 30 days since he’s been responding so well. X has even been able to take day trips with a friend to a nearby town.

Congrats to DMX!
