Beyonce In Hot Water Over New Music Video [VIDEO]
Beyonce has been accused of plagarism, but not for her lyrics. In her new music video for the single, ‘Countdown’ there is plenty of credited inspiration… West Side Story, Funny Face, Flashdance… but there was no credit given to Belgian choreographer Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker.
De Keersmaeker was quoted:
“I didn’t know anything about this. I’m not mad, but this is plagiarism. This is stealing. What’s rude about it is that they don’t even bother about hiding it. They seem to think they could do it because it’s a famous work. Am I honored? Look, I’ve seen local school kids doing this. That’s a lot more beautiful.”
Take a look and see what you think. I think that it’s more than just similar…
