Lana Del Rey Says Radiohead Lawsuit Is "Over"
She made the announcement from the stage at Lollapalooza Brasil
Published Mar 26, 2018Back in January, Lana Del Rey said Radiohead had launched a plagiarism suit against her, alleging that her song "Get Free" sounded like their hit "Creep." Though Radiohead's publisher denied the existence of a lawsuit, Del Rey has now declared the legal mess to be "over."
Del Rey made the announcement during her set at Lollapalooza Brasil this weekend, telling the crowd, "Now that my lawsuit's over, I guess I can sing that song ["Get Free"] any time I want, right?"

Del Rey had previously called Radiohead's lawyers "relentless," tweeting that the band wanted "100% of the publishing — I offered up to 40 over the last few months but they will only accept 100." The initial news of the suit led to a number of Del Rey's fans hitting out against the UK icons online.
Not long after Del Rey made her comments, a spokesperson for Warner/Chappell said in a statement that "no lawsuit has been issued and Radiohead have not said they 'will only accept 100%' of the publishing of 'Get Free.'" The band themselves have remained silent on the issue.
