The nerve of some people! The controversy between Mötley Crüe and rapper Travis Scott – who? – gets some laughing rainbows as his attorney affirms that “Tommy didn’t invent the concept of a roller coaster on stage.” The story is that TMZ reported that Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee accused rapper Travis Scott – again, who? – of ripping off his on-stage 360-degree roller coaster design. The ride in question is the one Tommy used during Crüe’s 2011 tour where he was strapped to his drum set while doing a solo. This Wednesday, November 28, Travis Scott did a similar stunt during his show at New York’s Madison Square Garden.
See Tommy’s tweets:
“Just found out this f* idiot @trvisxx or someone on his team ripped off the 360 AND The Crüecifly! WTF!! Get an original idea bro…”
“ANNNNND not one rip off but TWO. DOPE. I get copying is a form of flattery, but this is just straight ripping off my shit. What do you guys think???”
“Hey @trvisXX lawyer up!”
And the lawyer responds:
“Tommy didn’t invent the concept of a roller coaster on stage and there’s no legal basis for his accusatory outburst. The actual creator and owner of the system has granted Travis all rights to use that equipment to complement his original stage design.”
