Duran Duran star John Taylor has hit out at pop superstar Madonna, accusing her of copying their collaboration with Justin Timberlake and superproducer Timbaland.
Madonna teamed up with the hitmaking duo to record songs for her new album Hard Candy, and her single 4 Minutes - featuring the pair - has become a chart topper across the world.
But bassist Taylor claims the Holiday singer stole the idea for the duet from the 1980s rockers, after Duran Duran joined Timberlake and Timbaland in the studio for their 2007 album Red Carpet Massacre.
However, he insists he isn't surprised: "It wouldn't be the first time Madonna's copied us. She's been doing it for years."

How can you accuse Madonna for stealing an idea.If there is no copyright on this idea, everybody can use it.Anyone can repoduce a hit, if she goes into the studio herself.It is modern discomusic. Sweet candy.Martin BarslevArtistwww.geocities.com/martinbarslev

Madonna also claimed to have the first video banned by MTV for nudity or content. Duran Duran had Girls on Film (night version) and The Chauffeur which were not allowed. She also claimed that the release of Justify My Love was the first video single. Also beat to it by about a decade by Duran Duran with Girls on Film/Hungry Like the Wolf video single. Just 2 previous things she tried to take credit for that DD did first.I'm sure if she could, she would take credit for the first song available to purchase as a download online ever. Oh wait, no, that was Duran Duran as well!
