Katy Perry's #1 single "California Gurls" has come under fire from the Beach Boys.
The group made a name for themselves by singing about California girls (on track "California Girls" funnily enough) in 1965.
While singer Brian Wilson proclaimed he was happy with Perry's track ("The melody is infectious, and I'm flattered that Snoop Dogg used our lyrics on the tag. I wish them well with this cut." ), a letter sent to Perry's record label on behalf of Wilson and co-writer Mike Love is demanding they be credited for writing the lyric "I wish they all could be California girls".
In addition to the song credit, the letter requests Wilson and Love receive royalties from the track.
With close to four million copies of the single sold already, we can't blame the Beach Boys for jumping in with the lawyers. The only suggestion we make is that Ke$ha joins in too.
