    TMZ reports that Lady Gaga is being sued by a singer named Rebecca Francescatti, who goes by the name Rebecca F. Rebecca F. claims that Gaga's single "Judas" from Born This Way is a rip off of her 1999 song "Juda." Rebecca F. also points out that her former bassist Brian Gaynor now works for a music company that wrote 17 songs for Born This Way so this could be more than just a coincidence and Gaynor could be the link here.

    TMZ posted clips of the two songs here so you can take a listen and see if you think that Rebecca F. has a case against the Mother Monster of not. Rebecca F. is seeking compensation. There is some melodic similarity there, but we don't think that means that Gaga stole the song or was even given the song by someone who misappropriated it.

    Team Lady Gaga or Team Rebecca F?
