Super producer Jermaine Dupri seems so misunderstood these days. *sigh*
[FLASHBACK: In the Tweets: Jermaine Dupri Responds to Janet Jackson Tell-All Rumors… ]
Dupri caught flack yet again when he offered his take on the Blurred Lines lawsuit and in the process managed to diss Ciara by calling her new single a ‘rip off’ of one of his Usher tracks.

Jermaine recently sat down with Big Tigger of Atlanta’s V-103 radio station to address the issue, stating:
I wasn’t trying to attack Ciara or anything like that. It ain’t like that… what I was trying to do is make sure the guy who was doing the interview understands how frequently this happens in the music business.
This happens probably EVERYDAY… that somebody’s record sounds like somebody else’s record.
It’s very easy for people to be influenced by music. If you listen to records a lot if you listen to artists a lot… it just happens very frequently.
I didn’t know me saying that was going to turn into this…
Dupri still manages to prove his point when he and Big Tigger compare the two songs back to back.
