Why Will.I.Am And Pharrell Williams Are Beefing

Published

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.

Music’s most amazing night went down Sunday at the Microsoft Theater in L.A. and we have to say the night was all about the ladies!

That’s right the 45th American Music Awards had some major moments and some major girl power starting with Pink and Kelly Clarkson.

The duo got the show started singing R.E.M.’s “Everybody Hurts”, but it was their solo performances that had fans going nuts.

Kelly Clarkson returned to the stage and had everyone on their feet with a medley of her classic tracks and new single “Love So Soft.”

While Pink took her career to new heights leaping off the side of a building while performing her hit single “Beautiful Trauma.”

Christina Aguilera, paid tribute to Whitney Houston with a commemorative performance for the 25th anniversary of The Bodyguard.

But the #Majah moment of the night had to be Diana Ross. The Motown legend was given the Lifetime Achievement Award, and performed some of her greatest hits before accepting the honor.
