Marvin Gaye’s Family Talks About Court Victory… And Do They Have Their Sights On ANOTHER Pharrell Song To Take To Court??

Some lose while others win.

That was the case on Tuesday when Robin Thicke and Pharrell lost their battle against Gaye‘s family and were ordered to fork + 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 ’re not currently thinking about possible legal action against 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 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!!!

Gwyneth Paltrow Wants Her Kids To Take Over Goop When They Get Older!

Gwyneth Paltrow has built a very successful -y empire, and she her to when grow up!

The actress recently talked 10-year-old Apple and 8-year-old Moses, and her plans for the biz, explaining:

“I very much want Goop to be its own standalone brand. I know at this point it’s inextricably me but we are a team of amazing people who bring incredible ideas to the site — it’s not only me. My dream would be that in 20 years people would sort of recollect that I had something to do with it…and my involvement would be less essential. I never wanted to do a proprietary brand. I wanted it to be its own thing that my children can run one day if they want to!”

[ Related: Gwyneth Paltrow Will ONLY Listen To Beyoncé's Music When She's Working Out! ]

Why would they not want to?! It’s a great idea!

also tried to clear up some misconceptions about Goop, explaining what it’s really all about! She said:

“I was a fool. I had no idea what I was getting myself into. But I have to say, it’s been incredibly rewarding and I learn so much every day. And we’re in a really exciting time in the business right now. It’s amazing to be the creative force and also to understand what’s going on on the fiscal side and with raising money and all of that. It’s very challenging. We’re always trying to improve. I think that there is sometimes some miscommunication. We aren’t a super luxury site, but we’re aspirational. We have things on there that cost , [and] we have things on there that cost 0. I think sometimes that some of the criticism that Goop gets is because people haven’t actually gone to the site and looked around to see what we actually are.”

That kind of puts a new spin on things! Does it change your opinion of Goop at all???

Khloe Kardashian And French Montana Pose Together… But Are They BACK Together?!

Has Khloe Kardashian made a connection? Or should we say re-connection?!

[ Related: Khloe Flaunts Her Boobs In NYC ]

After listening to Diddy, Snoop, Big Sean (who was named the new member of CÎROC Boyz) and Lil’ Kim perform, posed backstage with Khloe’s stepsisters, Kendall and Kylie Jenner.

And while Khloe and French stood on opposite sides in the photo, insiders reveal they arrived and departed , and are “definitely .”

Coincidentally, both were seen at the same Grammys afterparty last week in Los Angeles. Separate parties on separate coasts? Hmmm…

The reality starlet broke up with the rapper back in December, saying then that she “jumped into something” because she felt “lonely and destructive.”
