Miley Cyrus has another lawsuit on her hands.

Miley Cyrus was hit with a $300 million lawsuit over her song "We Can't Stop".

Now: "We Run Things", which is a great song, sounds absolutely nothing like "We Can't Stop", which is not. The plaintiff, Michael May, better known by his stage name Flourgon, claims in the suit that "We Can't Stop" closely resembles his 1988 reggae track, "We Run Things". May also claimed that the songstress stole his "unique and creative lyrical phraseology in order to establish an overarching and pervasive theme.in the realm of self-discovery and self-governing". Furthermore, the Jamaican artist reportedly won "formal copyright protection" for all musical arrangements in "We Run Things" back in November.

Representatives for Cyrus, 25, did not immediately respond to requests for comment via Facebook and Twitter.

Snow storm slams Northeast
Vernon Mayor Harry Shortway says a lot of people are upset about rescinded breaks, "but what are you going to do". Unlike the previous nor'easter, this storm targeted areas closer to the coast with up to two feet of snow.

May said he sought to protect his work previous year with the U.S. Copyright Office, and in November won "formal copyright protection" for all musical arrangements in "We Run Things".

However, in a recent case against Taylor Swift (that's eerily similar to this one) regarding the similarity of her hit track "Shake It Off" to 3LW's 2001 song "Playas Gon' Play", the suit was dismissed by the presiding judge.

"We Can't Stop" was the first single from Cyrus" career-transforming fourth album "Bangerz".

The Kingston, Jamaica resident is also seeking a halt to further sales and performances of "We Can't Stop", according to his complaint filed with the U.S. District Court in Manhattan.
