We've reached out to representatives of Del Rey and will update this post accordingly if and when we hear back.

"It's true about the lawsuit", she said.

Lana Del Rey became the latest in a long line of pop stars to have a lawsuit filed against them for plagiarism, this time by Radiohead. It's clear that the verses of "Get Free" use musical elements found in the verses of "Creep" and we've requested that this be acknowledged in favor of all writers of Creep'.

"I just want to let you know, regardless if it gets taken down off of everything, that those sentiments that I wrote... that I really am going to strive for them, even if that song is not on future physical releases of the record", she said. The band had rejected her offer of 40 percent of the song's publishing royalties, she claimed, demanding 100 percent.

"I do want to say there's a particular song that Radiohead want 100% of my publishing for", she began. It seems the band and their representatives believe that Del Rey may have been a little too "inspired" by their 90's classic "Creep" and are taking swift legal action as a result.

America's sweetheart Lana Del Rey is finding herself in some legal trouble over a song from her recent album Lust For Life... "Their lawyers have been relentless", she added, "so we will deal with it in court". Two songs may sound similar to the untrained ear, but a musicologist may be able to show that the similarities are trivial or commonplace.

So, technically, if the Radiohead camp go its way, the band, Hazlewoord and Hammond would be credited as co-writers of "Get Free" alongside Del Rey and co-writers Rick Nowels and Kieron Menzie.

Some songs resemble their inspiration more than others, though.
