Does John still own the copyright to the song? If they didn’t contact him about using it most times that means no.

man SHUT THE ENTIRE FUUCK UP!!! yall white Demons been stealing from black people for generations upon generations and forever plus 100 days, you fuucking loser you

And anyway, it wasnt Taraji who picked the name, I'm pretty sure it was ( drum roll.........) the WHITE DEMON PRODUCERS that picked the name you two-time loser!!!

What you better be worried about is that Slavery that your entire white race will be going to when Christ returns. You bunch of thieving Criminals & Murderers!!

@9:41 Exactly, that mofo got a check & if it wasn't for Ike & Tina putting that "stank" on it nobody would know that song.

On topic, I supported my sis Taraji on Saturday and I was expecting "a long kiss goodnight" type kick ass movie & I got "Losing Isiah 2". Good acting but it needed a better plot. It's time for another Pam Grier tho'

really...REALLY? Please; ^^^this all day. Wouldn't nobody be checking for the phrase 'Proud Mary' if not for Ike & Tina. He needs to sit back, shut the hell up, and thank the Maker that anyone's going to even look his way thru the mention of its association with the movie.

They forever wanting to take credit/offense for every damn thing we do but not stand up for us when shit really matters.

This bitch didn’t have a hard time with Ike kicking Tina’s ass while Ike sang this song. Foggerty needs to sit down and shut up.

And another thing; you can’t copyright a title and Foggerty knows it. He needs to shut the fuck up.

He might have been asked / paid to do this as any publicity is good publicity and God knows Hollywood have pile driven it into the ground.

What I read on Yahoo last week is that he signed away his publishing, like Frankie Lymon, so he has no say as to how it's used. True, the ike and Tina cover was the best thing to happen to him but he needs a seat on this one.

This is a remake of 1980 Gloria the movie Starting Gena Rowland.

Funny he waited for the box office numbers to drop befor the fake outrage hit him. Because I for one have been seeing the promo for this for awhile.

I don't get the comments about the "white tears". This movie benefited white producers and directors as well. So either way the money is split, it's white folks getting it. Any who, I had no interest in seeing "Proud Mary" and still don't *shrugs*

11:58 you seem dumb as hell.
A simple google search would have done you some good. Checked out a wiki page. Or better yet, READ THE DAMN ARTICLE POSTED ABOVE. THE MAN WROTE THE SONG.

@12:17 If the movie is like Gloria then it's a remake of a remake. Sharon Stone starred in a remake of Gloria in the 90s. I plan to see Proud Mary today.

Oh my! How quick do these people forget that for your years they stole lyrics and songs from black people and did what they wanted to do to make money, set a trend, etc. I'm sure he's still getting royalty checks from Ike & Tina Turner's rendition of this song.

I love Creedence Clearwater Revival, MY interpretation of the song was “marijuana” (Pround “Mary” keep on “burning”,“rolling” on the river...I know it’s about a boat but again that’s MY interpretation). That’s the beauty of music to make it what you want, with that being said I never liked Ike & Tina’s version nor do i plan on seeing this movie anytime soon. I see what Fogerty is saying but the song is no longer his (dude signed away all his CCR catalogue (Fantasy Records) to get out and of a BS deal & have a great solo career only to get sued later down the line for having a song that sounded to familiar to a CCR song by Fantasy Records with whom ironically signed with again in 2005). He ain’t getting a check but everybody know it’s his song so he ought to feel however the hell he wants.
