“All I Want For Christmas Is You” Has Landed Mariah Carey in a $20 Million Lawsuit

Published

on

Mariah Carey is being sued for $20 million by a songwriter for her 1994 hit All I Want For Christmas Is You. Andy Stone, a singer and songwriter, alleges he co-wrote a song with the same name five years before Carey debuted her holiday smash, and has sued her in New Orleans.

Seriousness of the Matter

Stone is suing Carey, her co-writer Walter Afansieff, and Sony Music Entertainment for infringement and misappropriation of copyright. After releasing the 1994 chart-topper, Stone claims the defendants took advantage of his “popularity and unique style” and misled followers.

Out of the Blue

Despite having the same name, the two songs are completely distinct, with no similar melodies or lyrics except for the phrase “all I want for Christmas is you.” Stone accuses Carey and Afansieff of ‘knowingly, deliberately, and purposefully participating in a campaign’ to infringe on his rights to the song, according to court filings.

Given that Carey’s song was released 28 years ago, it’s puzzling why Stone has launched the lawsuit now. Stone’s lawyers approached Carey and the other co-defendants last year but were unable to reach an arrangement, according to court documents.

New American Pie Movie in Progress

Published

on

According to the writer Sujata Day, the upcoming American Pie movie will present “a fresh take” on the long-running filthy comic series. The Hollywood Reporter claims that Day’s initial idea served as the inspiration for this next entry in the American Pie series.

Something Appropriate

According to star Jason Biggs, the famed webcam sequence from the original American Pie “wouldn’t be made now and it couldn’t get made now. It would be unacceptable what that represents.” A modern remake of the film would almost surely have taken a different stance on what a sex comedy can be in the movie world.

A Huge Possibility

The upcoming American Pie movie does not currently have a director, but Day made her directorial debut in 2020 with Definition Please, a comedy-drama about a former spelling bee champion that won prizes at the San Francisco CAAM Fest and the Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival, among other events. Her first significant directing role may be on a new American Pie.

The main series most recently came to an end in 2012 with American Reunion. And with the gap of years that comes with the upcoming movie, the plot should keep up with the times, and hopefully deliver a great movie for the ages!

A Long Awaited Movie Finally Comes the Way of “Community”

Published

on

Community has six seasons under its belt and, as the prophecy predicted, will soon have its long-awaited motion picture. A movie based on Dan Harmon’s enduring comedy has finally been commissioned by Peacock.

A Few More Details

The fact that practically the whole original cast will return is perhaps even more thrilling. Peacock has non-competitive rights to broadcast Community Season Six in addition to the movie.

A Bit of a Hint

Joel McHale, who plays Joel on the television show Community, recently hinted in a Tweet that the movie, which has been touted ever since the program ended in 2015, would be coming soon. The phrase “Six seasons and a movie,” which frequently appears on the show and, consequently, among its ardent following, is referenced in the Tweet.

Cardi B Opens Up About Failed Collaboration with Call of Duty

Published

on

It may sound a little strange, but Cardi B should be creating some buzz for Call of Duty. Back in July, the rapper partnered with Activision. She goes on to tell us more about how the partnership eventually fell apart after that.

The Reason

You might recall that Cardi B debuted her partnership with Activision by donning a Simon “Ghost” Riley necklace in the music video for “Hot S**t.” Since then, you probably haven’t seen Cardi B advertising Call of Duty because she allegedly lost her cooperation deal as a result of prior “stupid decisions.”

A Hot Topic

Cardi B admitted guilt to assault-related charges earlier this month, according to Comic Book. They related to an altercation that occurred in a New York strip club in 2018. Cardi B took a plea agreement that included 15 days of community service, paying court costs for the other women involved, and avoiding prison time.
