Stewart was sued for plagiarism
pop singer Jorge Ben
(now known as Jorge Ben Jor
). Do You Think I'm Sexy
's chorus is basically a ripoff of Ben Jor

", which was very popular in his home country, and it still is. Even though Ben Jor has withdrawn the complaint, Stewart has officially admitted that "Taj Mahal
"'s melody glued to his mind after his visit to Brazil
in the 70s.
