Madonna SUED

Over Vogue's Horniness

Madonna
is being sued over her dance megahit Vogue -- because she allegedly never paid to make the song SO DAMN HORNY.

A record company named VMG Salsoul filed the lawsuit against Madonna in L.A., claiming the singer sampled the horns and strings from Salsoul Orchestra's 1977 dance song "Chicago Bus Stop (Ooh, I Love It)."



According to the lawsuit, Madonna never paid to use the samples -- and has illegally profited off the instrumentals since she released Vogue in 1990.



So why did it take so long? VMG Salsoul claims the samples aren't obvious ... and were only recently detected thanks to new technology that can help isolate and identify individual sounds.

VMG Salsoul is now suing for copyright infringement -- demanding unspecified damages.

Lol this "lawsuit" is nothing but a waste of time. There is zero to no case here. Ridiculous. Madonna has sampled plenty in her career and she admits it when she does. As for the deal with Gaga, Madonna is just razzing her a bit. Playing with her. If M was seriously upset, she would've done much more by now. She was silent for a year until she finally got sick of being asked about it and decided to have some fun to amuse herself.

Maybe Lady Gaga told VMG Salsoul in revenge for Madonna saying Gaga was stealing her tunes! Anyway, I wrote down Chicago Bus Stop. I'm going to buy it, I like it.

Gaga did steal Express Yourself and ironically the rap from "Vogue" "Grace Kelly, Harlowe, Jean...don't be a drag just be a queen" C'mon people, you know it's true!

However, sounds like this band stole "The Hustle"! I don't hear Madonna anywhere.

She actually sang a portion of this "bus stop" song during her GIRLIE SHOW tour back in the 90's..I believe she mixed it with HOLIDAY.
