Fans of the Houston singer Just Brittany are currently irate on Twitter, claiming that Rihanna's latest single, "Bitch Better Have My Money," is a rip-off of Just Brittany's "Betta Have My Money," because both choruses feature the phrase "bitch better have my money."

Accompanied by an elaborate stage show with ostrich feather-wielding buff dudes worthy of Madge herself, it was a fairly pitch-perfect interpretation of the 1990 single, no errant bouts of melisma… »1/13/15 1:00pm1/13/15 1:00pm
