(Newser) – It’s not easy being a rockstar. Just ask Miley Cyrus, who’s just finished apologizing for sultry Annie Leibovitz shots that shocked some of her fans (or at least their parents) and now is being accused of ripping off her new song “Rockstar,” the New York Post reports. The band Lustra says the song is too similar to their “Scotty Doesn’t Know” to be a coincidence, and they’re mulling legal action against Cyrus. Miley’s response? “She doesn’t write the songs—she sings them,” says her rep. “We have referred this to Disney.”
