LOS ANGELES — Singer Demi Lovato tripped and fell on her knees while walking on the stage and waving to the crowd during a performance.

Sporting casual outfits consisting of a jacket over a black top and matching pants, the singer was walking on the stage and waving to the crowd of around 16,000 students before she tripped and lost her balance at the 2016 WE Day in California on Thursday, reports aceshowbiz.com.

“I’m okay,” she assured everyone in attendance as she sat on the floor and raised her hands up in the air while smiling widely. Similar incidents have happened to Lovato several times before. Last December, she slipped and ended up on her back on the stage during a live appearance at New York City’s iHeartRadio Z100 Jingle Ball.

A few months earlier, she took a nasty fall during a performance at a pool party to promote her single “Cool for the summer”. The annual WE Day event celebrates youth who are making a difference in their local and global communities. The 2016 edition was also attended by Paula Abdul, Tyrese Gibson, Ian Somerhalder and many more. Lovato served as a performer as well alongside Selena Gomez and Big Sean.

US judge dismisses Taylor Swift ‘Shake It Off’ copyright lawsuit

LOS ANGELES — A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit accusing singer Taylor Swift of stealing lyrics for her song ‘Shake It Off’ on Tuesday ruling the phrases in question were not sufficiently original to merit copyright protection.

Songwriters Sean Hall and Nathan Butler brought the suit last fall, arguing that the chorus of the song borrowed from their 2001 composition, ‘Playas Gon’ Play’.

In his ruling, Judge Michael W Fitzgerald held that combining the phrases, ‘Playas gonna play’ and ‘haters gonna hate,’ does not entail sufficient originality to warrant copyright protection, Variety reported.

Swift’s 2014 song reached No 1 on the pop charts and marked her evolution from country to pop music.

Swift’s lyrics from the chorus of ‘Shake It Off’ are, ‘the players gonna play, play, play, play, play, and the haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate.’

Attorneys for Swift asked US District Judge Michael Fitzgerald in January to dismiss the case.

“In order for such short phrases to be protected under the Copyright Act, they must be more creative than the lyrics at issue here,” Fitzgerald ruled, according to court papers.

The songwriters who sued Swift did not allege Swift’s song stole musical elements, the judge said, and phrases about players and haters existed in pop culture before 2001.
