It looks like someone is accusing Beyonce of plagiarism yet again. This time it isn’t for claiming to have written a song that she never even thought of before singing it. A week after releasing the video for her single “Countdown” Beyonce has attracted more than 1.6 Million viewers. She has also attracted plagiarism accusations for copied dance moves. Belgian choreographer Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker claims that Beyonce has crossed the line by copying her moves. In a recent statement, the choreographer adamantly defended herself:
“ 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.”
A video appeared on YouTube the same day as the premier of “Countdown” showing the similarities in the choreography which has already accumulated over 255,000 views and is rapidly growing. On this subject, I thought it would be best to allow you, the reader, to be the judge. Do you see any similarities or parallels?
