Electronic Musician Clive Tanaka is suing professional hot mess Nicki Minaj claiming her song Starships is in fact a blatant rip-off of his 2009 track Neu Chicago.

Here's Starships.

Here's Neu Chicago.

Whoa! Yeah that's similar. Hey, Clive Tanaka I think you may just have a case here my friend. Now, Clive, if I can be real with you for a second (I mean you're an electronic musician so I feel like I can trust you). This thing goes deep, bro. Why are you stopping at Nicki Minaj?

What about these guys...

And this guy...

And while you're at it you should probably sue EVERYONE WHO PRODUCED ANY MAINSTREAM DANCE POP BETWEEN 2010 AND NOW because guess what? It all sounds like that and you didn't invent it, dude. You didn't. At some point in the 90's someone put their hands on a keyboard and played chords to the beat of 1, 2, 3 - 1, 2 - 1, 2, 3. And you weren't that person, Clive Tanaka.

You know who should be suing Nicki Minaj?

Misfits, call me. I'm not a lawyer but I always wanted to give it a shot.
