Beyonce Facing Plagiarism Accusations
Beyonce is facing fresh allegations she plagiarised a Belgian choreographer’s dance moves in her new music video Countdown.
The superstar premiered the song in America on Thursday (6 October) and has been accused of copying a routine from two of Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker’s productions, according to AceShowbiz.com.
Writing in a Danish blog, Anne said, “I didn’t know anything about this. I’m not mad, but this is plagiarism... This is stealing. They took pieces from Achterland and Rosas danst Rosas.
“It’s a bit rude, I must say. 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 honoured? Look, I’ve seen local school kids doing this. That’s a lot more beautiful.” Ouch!
Bey is yet to make any comment about the accusations. But check out her video Countdown here...
