David Guetta Gets Spoofed With "Hey Grandma." The Internet Wins Again

Amid the increasingly litigious climate surrounding electronic music, Ariana Grande and David Guetta are being sued by Alex Greggs for misappropriating parts of his 2012 song "Takes All Night" for their 2014 track "One Last Time." Greggs, who wrote the song for pop star Skye Stevens, has alleged that the chorus of his song was directly plagiarized by the two artists according to TMZ.

Greggs is the creative mind behind a number of pop music's biggest hits, having written songs for the likes of Lady Gaga, Justin Timberlake, and even Michael Jackson. He is reportedly suing for a significant portion of the profits from "One Last Time."

Guetta has come under fire for plagiarism in the past; Andre Dudek is suing him for similarities between Dudek's '80s single "Illuminations" and Guetta and Sam Martin's "Dangerous." In addition, Guetta and Nicki Minaj are suspected by many to have stolen staging elements from Burning Man's HYBYCOZ stage for their own live show at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards.
