Cut Copy Gets Copied

it really makes me so sad to know there are so many unoriginal artists out there.
it's just really sad.
it's one thing to have inspiration from someone and another to just straight out copy someone.

one of my favorite bands, cut copy, released an album with this cover in 2004:

thalia's cover art for her new album Lunada:

now if that's not straight out copying i dont know what is.
i read somewhere that she admitted to the copying saying it was intentional that it inspired her and all this stuff. BULLSHIT. thats fucking ripped off straight from cut copy. this is like when urban outfitters ripped off johnny cupcakes' designs. the really sad thing is that she probably would've gotten away with it had cut copy not reached a level of newfound stardom in the U.S. now this makes me so upset to just sit and think for a moment about how many artists out there are being ripped off by mainstream musicians. thats just bullshit.

the saddest thing of this all is that i used to like thalia. come on give me a break, being half mexican i grew up singing her songs. this is just all so sad.
