    Author, 17, Says It’s ‘Mixing,’ Not Plagiarism


    Although Ms. Hegemann has apologized for not being more open about her sources, she has also defended herself as the representative of a different generation, one that freely mixes and matches from the whirring flood of information across new and old media, to create something new. “There’s no such thing as originality anyway, just authenticity,” said Ms. Hegemann in a statement released by her publisher after the scandal broke.

    Does she think that those rap acts didn't pay all those 1980s bands to "sample" (what a bullshit term) tunes and make themselves famous?

    They are totally different.

    Newsflash! Good-looking young author given wide lattitude by publishers! Plus, Teens can be glib and annoying!

    It's a shame this current generation apparently doesn't know the difference between using someone's work as inspiration and flat-out stealing.
