Usher Accused of Stealing OMG Tune From Homer Simpson

R&B singer Usher is being accused of stealing the tune for his hit OMG from Homer Simpson.

Radio jocks at Y101.7 in Jackson Mississippi discovered the similarity between the singer's music and one featured in a 2003 episode of 'The Simpsons'.

On Usher's track, written and produced by Will.i.am, he sings, "Honey got a booty like pow, pow, pow. Honey got some boobies like wow, oh wow."

In 'The Simpsons' episode, titled 'Dude, Where's My Ranch?' Homer Simpson sings, "Christmas in December, wow, wow, wow. Give me tons of presents, now, now, now."

The radio DJs have mixed together the two songs to compare the tunes, which has led to more fans questioning whether the singer based his hit on the Simpsons song.

Usher was hit with a plagiarism lawsuit last month from an aspiring singer who accused the star and Alicia Keys of stealing the 2004 track 'Caught Up'. Wadena Pyatt claims she wrote the song when she was signed to MBK Entertainment in 2003, the same label Keys' former manager, Jeff Robinson owns.

Check out the two songs below:
