Singer Lana Del Rey confirmed the lawsuit over similarities between her song 'Get Free' and Radiohead's 'Creep' is “over."
Stereogum reports that Lana told the crowd during her set at Lollapalooza Brazil over the weekend: “Now that my lawsuit’s over, I guess I can sing that song ('Get Free') any time I want, right?”

Rumours of the lawsuit began circulating in early January that the English rock band was considering suing Lana for copyright infringement over the song.
A source told The Sun that both Radiohead and Rey were "trying to thrash it out behind the scenes to prevent it from going to court." The source added that Radiohead's team hoped that the band would either "receive compensation or be credited on the list of songwriters to receive royalties."
Lana took to Twitter, saying, "Although I know my song wasn't inspired by 'Creep', Radiohead feel it was and want 100 percent of the publishing - I offered up to 40 over the last few months but they will only accept 100. Their lawyers have been relentless, so we deal with it in court."
Though the band denied taking legal action, they said they had asked for a writing credit to be added to the song.
