"Ain't Nobody Got Time for That" video star Sweet Brown is suing Apple.
Adam Rifkin stashed this in Whatever.
Even though she doesn't have time for bronchitis, Oklahoma City resident Kimberly Wilkins — better known on the Internet as Sweet Brown — does have time to sue Apple.
She's suing over an iTunes song that sampled a few of her catchphrases, according to NewsOk.
Sweet Brown got her first fifteen minutes of fame when she told a local TV-news station that she fled a burning apartment building because she suffered from bronchitis, and "ain't nobody got time for that."
The video became a viral sensation, amassing 1 million views on YouTube within 48 hours. Sweet Brown is seeking to profit from her Internet fame by becoming a celebrity spokesperson — and that may actually bolster her case.
Sweet Brown is suing Apple, a radio program called The Bob Rivers Show, and a handful of other parties for unauthorized use of her likeness, according to court documents.
The basis of the lawsuit stems from a song called "I Got Bronchitis." The Bob Rivers Show, according to Sweet Brown's complaint, produced the song with samples from Wilkins' interview with the local TV-news station. The song sampled phrases like, "Ain't nobody got time for that," "Ran for my life," and "Oh, Lord Jesus it's a fire."
Apple has since removed the song from iTunes.
