Jason Mraz is no fan of the Jonas Brothers, and claims that their song “Introducing Me” jacks his own “I’m Yours.” “I heard the song and it was just a tremendous, tremendous horror of a tune,” Mraz said. “I noticed a few similarities in the melody, but it wasn’t enough to pick up the phone and argue with somebody about it. If anything, I just wanted my $1.29 back that I spent on iTunes.” Wait, you bought a Jonas Brothers song, Jason? [MTV]
