According to some US DJ’s who are also avid Simpsons fans, yes. Usher haters claim that he ripped off a segment of “OMG” from a song that Homer sang in a 2003 episode entitled, “Dude, where’s my ranch.” The verse in question is “OMG”‘s: “Honey got a booty like pow, pow, pow. Honey got some boobies like wow, oh wow,” as many are saying that this is eerily similar to Homer’s little ditty of, “Christmas in December, wow wow wow. Give me tons of presents, now now now.” Conveniently, some computer whiz has put together a YouTube video to show us the supposed similarities.
Usher has been making sexual tunes for a while, and Homer Simpson seems like the last person he would jack material from. However, this youtube mash-up makes it impossible to not hear Homer everytime I listen to OMG, which used to be a dance floor fav. Damn you, Mr. Simpson!!
