But it’s clear that this mother-son duo have a bond that is just the sweetest thing ever! And no matter how much is going on in Katie’s life, with a bit of help, she’s able to keep Harvey happy and healthy.
That was the case on Tuesday when Robin Thicke and Pharrell lost theircourt battle against Marvin Gaye‘s family and were ordered to fork over + million to the late singer’s family for using direct elements of Gaye’s song Got To Give It Up in Thicke’s song Blurred Lines.
Well, Marvin’s family recently talked about how it felt to hear that court verdict read out loud and much more!
Marvin’s ex-wife Janis described the emotions she was feeling after hearing the ruling in court. She said:
“My heart started pounding but I still had faith that the verdict was going to go our way.”
And when that verdict DID go their way, the family was overjoyed!
However they’re not currently thinking about possible legal action against Pharrell for another one of his songs that some find a little bit too similar to Marvin’s tune Ain’t That Peculiar. The infamous song Happy!!!
Here’s what Marvin’s daughter Nona Gaye said:
“I’m not going to lie. I do think they sound alike.”
But Janis added:
“We’re just in the moment today and we’re satisfied. I heard the mash-ups — but I didn’t really need to hear them. I know ‘Ain’t That Peculiar’ and I’ve heard ‘Happy.’”
To which Marvin’s son Marvin Gaye III said:
“Ain’t that peculiar.”
Janis admits that she always thought Pharrell stole Marvin Gaye’s song especially when she heard that Pharrell wrote Blurred Lines in an hour. Janis said:
“When I first heard that he had said he did it in an hour, my first thought was, ‘That’s because it was already done in 1977.’ So why would it take you any longer than 20 minutes… to redo something that had already been done 40 years earlier?”
Sounds like there are definitely a lot of hurt feelings in this case, but for the time being the Gaye family need time to think about the landmark case they just won and meditate on what their next move will be.
Marvin Gaye III said:
“We didn’t want to have to go through it [In the first place]. It’s been a long journey so we need time to reflect… Right now it’s all surreal.”
We can definitely understand that.
These past couple of days must have been a whirlwind for this family and hopefully this victory in their favor will help ease the tensions.
Millions of dollars can help alleviate a lot of hurt!!!
Check out the interview with this family down (below) !!!
“I think so, when you say that. When you go to the Met Ball, that’s great. It’s a great way to use your voice and go, ‘I’m wearing Valentino,’ or you could use your voice to give things. Now, some people who are cynical could say, ‘You’re helping yourself.’ But it’s trickle down. You’re not saying, ‘I want this just for me.’ I think that’s a really cool thing for a musician to do. Like two percent of the music industry has 80 percent of all the media about it. There’s like four people who get all the press, and if any of those four people say, ‘I want to speak for those people who would just never make this a story’—The only reason we’re talking about Taylor Swift taking Spotify on is because she’s Taylor Swift! That’s great!”
Mayer drops lots of nuggets of wisdom too, for people like Iggy Azalea!
Earlier today, Gwyneth Paltrow went on Howard Stern‘s SiriusXM radio show to promote her upcoming movie Mortdecai, but the conversation quickly turned to the actress’s tumultuous dating history, including her extremely high profile relationships with Brad Pitt, Ben Affleck, and ex-husband Chris Martin.
On the subject of Pitt, the 42-year-old admits to being deeply in love with him — even having her parent’s blessing on their engagement — but ultimately, she was too young for the relationship to flourish.
“I was such a kid, I was 22 when we met. It’s taken me until 40 to get my head out of my ass. You can’t make that decision when you’re 22 years old… I wasn’t ready, and he was too good for me…. I didn’t know what I was doing.”
But on Affleck, the Oscar winner didn’t have as many nice things to say.
She commented on their fling:
“He was not in a good place in his life to have a girlfriend.”
And even when the subject of Martin’s fling with Jennifer Lawrencecame up, the Goop creator MAY have hinted that the two are back together.
“Who says I don’t approve of Jennifer Lawrence?… I respect [Chris] as the father of my children… It’s his decision… He wouldn’t be someone who isn’t great.”
Someone who isn’t great?! Her use of the present tense is definitely suspicious!
Do you think Gwyneth spilled the beans? To find out for yourself, ch-ch-check out the audio clip of the interview (below)!
An insider revealed they are considering it, mainly because it could bring in big ratings!
A source dished:
“Jenelle and MTV have a super close relationship and having her wedding get could be a big ratings hit for the network. Her chaotic life has always been on TV so there is no reason now that she’s getting married again for it not to be on MTV. But she’s getting smarter and she knows how to negotiate better so she wants MTV to pay for the wedding.
MTV drives a hard bargain with Jenelle but they do pay her so they’ll have to make the offer sweet enough for her to put this all on TV.”
From the sound of it, Jenelle might be able to get what she wants! Or the two will have to compromise and meet in the middle.
The insider continued on to say:
“Jenelle is really happy with Nathan and MTV knows that her wedding will be all about the drama and they want to make sure they capture that. [However] they’re not sure if it would be just a spin off or part of another season of Teen Mom 2.”
Whatever they decide upon, we have a feeling both parties will benefit from the pending union!
