Did Beyonce Steal Dance Moves For The 'Countdown' Video?
Belgian choreographer says, 'yes'
When you are an international mega-star that millions of people adore, you're not allowed to be inspired by anyone or anything else. Everything you do has to be original, which is why it seems like every time Beyonce finds "inspiration" for a new performance or music video she gets accused of "stealing." The latest accusation comes by way of Belgium where choreographer Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker says that Beyonce ripped off one of her routines for her "Countdown" video. Take a look for yourself.
To be fair, it does look like Beyonce pretty much traced these moves and added her own color in between the lines. Maybe she could consider just giving people credit at the end of the videos?
This shouldn't be too surprising though. Her husband Jay-Z has been accused of stealing a line or two (or three or four or five).
