Vampire Weekend get sued

We kind of feel sorry for the guys on this one - alright, we totally do. It's not like they plagiarised a song or anything. All they did was use a cutesy and grainy image of a blonde girl, taken in the Eighties. The guys paid an agency for the snap, which - if you went out an actually bought the CD - is on the front cover of new album Contra. Unfortunately, the model, Kirsten Kennis says that she never gave sign off for the photo and is now suing the lads for a whopping $2million. Gulp.

That seems mighty excessive, but then what do we know about legal wranglings. Here's hoping the Vamps have a good lawyer...
