Eighties techno-pop star Thomas Dolby is reportedly getting ready to make a comeback and the hitmaker started by firing off at Britney Spears’ husband Kevin Federline over an illegal sample.
Dolby, who has recently played his first live shows in 15 years, was reportedly floored when he discovered that Federline had sampled his “She Blinded Me With Science” megahit without his permission, according to a published report.
Federline allegedly posted the track on his Myspace.com page, solely thinking the sample was from a Mobb Deep tune. Dolby, has since pointed out that Mobb Deep originally had to clear the sample with him.
Dolby quips, “Vanilla Ice is a superstar compared to this guy,” according to a published report.
