What the Funk is the deal with Uptown slurs?

Mark Ronson has hit back at fresh claims that he plagiarised his global smash Uptown Funk - claiming people always "come out of the woodwork" to try to grab a slice of success.

Earlier this month Serbian Snezana Miskovic, who sings under the name Viktorija, accused him of stealing "80%" of her track Ulice Mracne Nisu Za Devojke (English Dark Streets are not for Girls).

But Speaking backstage at Virgin Media's Louder Lounge area at the V Festival, Mark told 3am: "I don't know what the deal is with that. When you have a hit people always come out of the woodwork and try to claim it. Whatever. I've never had a big hit before so I guess that's what happens. Valerie was a cover so I didn't have to worry about The Zutons coming after me as they were getting all the money."

The star also said he is ready to have kids with wife Josephine de la Baume and insisted his youthful looks are nothing to do with Botox. "I've never had Botox. People are always surprised I'm 39. I guess I got good genes from my parents."
