It could only be a matter of time before rumors started to fly that Beyonce’ has plagiarized someone else’s work for her newest album 4. Belgian dancer and choreographer, Anne Teresa De Keersmaker, is accusing King Bey of stealing some of the choreography scenes for her latest video Countdown. After the video dropped a Danish blog found some of the scenes to look very similar to some of Anne Teresa De Keersmaker’s work and they took it upon themselves to make a side-by-side comparison of the scenes and to even contact De Keersmaker to find out her thoughts on the video.
De Keersmaker stated:
I didnâ€™t know anything about this. Iâ€™m not mad, but this is plagiarism. This is stealing. They took pieces from Achterland and Rosas danst Rosas. Including the dresses and a remake of the school of [architect Henry] Van de Velde [which served as the set for the original recording of Rosas danst Rosas by director Thierry De Mey]. Itâ€™s a bit rude, I must say. (â€¦) Whatâ€™s rude about it is that they donâ€™t even bother about hiding it. They seem to think they could do it because itâ€™s a famous work. (â€¦) Am I honoured? Look, Iâ€™ve seen local school kids doing this. Thatâ€™s a lot more beautiful.
