According to TMZ, during a rendition of Billie Holiday's "Don't Explain," Carey changed the words to "I know you cheated, motherf----r," instead of, "And I know you cheat / Right or wrong, don't matter."

This is similar to cheating rumors between Beyonce and Jay-Z during their concert in Cincinnati when Bey changed the lyrics to one of her songs.

The Hollywood Reporter just released transcripts of the Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams’ depositions from the lawsuit involving Marvin Gaye’s children. They insist that the track “Blurred Lines” written by the two artists alongside Clifford "T.I." Harris Jr. is a rip-off of their father’s 1977 song "Got to Give It Up."

During an interview with GQ, Thicke said "Pharrell and I were in the studio and I told him that one of my favorite songs of all time was Marvin Gaye's 'Got to Give It Up.' I was like, 'Damn, we should make something like that, something with that groove.'”
 
We asked on his involvement in writing the track in the deposition, Thicke said “To be honest, that's the only part where I was high on Vicodin and alcohol when I showed up at the studio. So my recollection is when we made the song, I thought I wanted... to be more involved than I actually was by the time, nine months later, it became a huge hit and I wanted credit.
 
But the reality is, is that Pharrell had the beat and he wrote almost every single part of the song.”
