She’s arguably the worst “singer” of the last 50 years, and she’s so worthless, she apparently can’t even be bothered to write her own awful lyrics:

A copyright case against Taylor Swift is set to go to trial over accusations that she stole the lyrics to her 2014 hit “Shake It Off” from another song, a US district judge ruled on Friday.

Central District of California Judge Michael Fitzgerald denied Swift’s motion for a summary judgment to dismiss the case, setting up the case for a jury trial, court documents show.

Songwriters Sean Hall and Nathan Butler alleged in 2017 that Swift copied the lyrics to the 2001 song they co-authored for 3LW, “Playas Gon’ Play.”

he 2017 lawsuit alleged that Swift’s lyrics in “Shake It Off” — “Cause the players gonna play, play, play, play, play and the haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate” — infringes on the copyrighted material from 3LW.

The 3LW song includes the lines: “Playas, they gon’ play and haters they gonna hate.”
