BEYONCE FACING PLAGIARISM LAWSUIT OVER “COUNTDOWN” VIDEO DANCE MOVES

Beyonce’s new “Countdown” video literally premiered days ago and already the clip is in the center of controversy.  According to sources, a Belgian dancer is gearing up to sue Beyonce for “allegedly” stealing her dance moves.

The Scoop:

 BRUSSELS – Pop superstar Beyonce was facing the prospect of legal action Monday after being accused of stealing dance moves for her new “Countdown” video.

Belgian dancer-choreographer Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker, one of the biggest names in modern dance, believes the pregnant American star has clearly plagiarized her work.

“I didn’t know anything about this. I’m not mad, but this is plagiarism. This is stealing,” Keersmaeker told a Danish blog, according to The (London) Times.

“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.”

In a further blog posting, she said, “Like so many people, I was extremely surprised when I got a message through Facebook about the special appearance of my two choreographies — ‘Rosas danst Rosas’ (1983) and ‘Achterland’ (1990) — in Beyonce’s new videoclip ‘Countdown.’

“When I saw the actual video, I was struck by the resemblance of Beyonce’s clip not only with the movements from ‘Rosas danst Rosas,’ but also with the costumes, the set and even the shots from the film by Thierry De Mey.” [source]

I don’t understand why Beyonce’s & her team does not believe in getting the proper clearance ahead of using someone else’s work or concept.  However, Beyonce has been known in the pass to pull moves like this…maybe she feels she has enough money to pay off any lawsuit so she continues to do what she chooses.
