Now everyone knows what she “thinks”.
Amy Wadge, co-writer of Ed Sheeran’s Thinking Out Loud, got the couple’s winning copyright verdict tattooed on her arm.
A federal jury in Manhattan earlier this month concluded that the longtime collaborators didn’t rip off Marvin Gaye’s “Let’s Get It On” with their 2014 hit.
Wadge, 47, last week shared a picture of the celebratory inking on her left arm, which read “independently created” in typewritten font.
The heirs of “Let’s Get It On” composer Ed Townsend claimed in a $100 million lawsuit that Sheeran and Wadge’s song contained elements of harmony, melody and rhythm stolen from the classic Gaye tune be.
But the jury found the British musicians “independently created” the romantic ballad.
In an Instagram post showcasing her new tattoo, Wadge said she was “on cloud nine at the verdict” that came after “three of the toughest weeks” of her life.
Sheeran, 32, was also overcome with emotion after the court hearing. The top-grossing singer-songwriter, who rents a $36,000-a-month apartment in Brooklyn Heights, celebrated his legal victory with an impromptu performance on the streets of Soho on May 5.
“We’ve spent the last eight years talking about two songs with dramatically different lyrics, melodies and four chords that are also different and used daily by songwriters around the world,” Sheeran said in a statement after the sentencing.
“No one owns them or the way they are played, nor does the color belong [sic] Blue.”
