Earlier today, noise pop duo Sleigh Bells claimed that Demi Lovato sampled their songs "Infinity Guitars" and "Riot Rhythm" for her song "Stars."

.@ddlovato Demi Lovato flattered you guys sampled Infinity Guitars & Riot Rhythm for "Stars" but we were not contacted. Gotta clear those.

For reference, here's "Infinity Guitars."
