You all know “Shake it Off,” obviously. You’ve spent countless hours in the car singing to it (don’t be ashamed). Well now, your favorite lyric from the song is getting Taylor Swift into a heap of shit.

Swift is getting sued for $42 million over the lyrics “Haters Gonna Hate.”

Musician Jesse Graham is filing a lawsuit against Taylor, claiming that she stole the lyrics “The haters gonna hate / The players gonna play.”

According to New York Daily NewsGraham said:

“Her hook is the same as mine. If I didn’t write the song ‘Haters Gone Hate,’ there wouldn’t be a song called ‘Shake It Off’ … At first I was going to let it go, but this song is my song all the way.”
