The singer then, saying: "It's true about the lawsuit".

Now the band's music publisher has issued a statement disputing the existence of a lawsuit. But just because they don't want to perform it doesn't mean they don't care about it.

Read Lana Del Rey's original tweet below.

"To set the record straight, no lawsuit has been issued and Radiohead have not said they 'will only accept 100%' of the publishing of Get Free". Radiohead's "Pablo Honey" album, which includes the disputed track, now credits Albert Hammond and Mike Hazlewood (who wrote "The Air That I Breathe") as co-writers of "Creep". "So we ended up just getting a little piece of it".

Cold weather to last through weekend
Temperatures could rise Saturday night , heading up to 30 on Sunday , with a 50-50 chance of snow, the Weather Service said. Now comes the next phase of this brutal winter season: Another blast of bone-chilling Arctic air.

"The irony of this is that Radiohead doesn't even completely own "Creep"," he explains. Which might not be a surprise. Ed Sheeran gave credit to the writers of TLC's song "No Scrubs" on his song "Shape of You". Same for Sam Smith and his "Stay With Me", with Tom Petty's "Won't Back Down". "Their lawyers have been relentless" in pushing for 100%, she said.

It's not a situation everyone in the music world likes (sometimes things do end up sounding like other things even if that wasn't the intent), but it is the legal reality now.

"Whats hilarious is that the point in that song that Radiohead got sued over, is the chord progression, which basically matches that of the chord progression in a lot of similar ways, in the Lana Del Rey song". The statement also denies that the band wants 100% of the publishing rights.

The song, like the Lust For Life album, features more hopeful and positive themes compared to Lana's previous works but retains the deeply personal lyrics and melancholic tunes she is best known for.
