Did Beyoncé steal dance moves for her new, and amazing, "Countdown" video? Is she the Urban Outfitters of choreography? Say it ain't so. According to ABC, she's been called out for being a copycat, and there's some pretty convincing video to go along with the accusations. Here's the side-by-side comparison of B's latest moves, and Belgian choreographer Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker's routine, which she created:
De Keersmaeker told a Danish blog that the video amounts to “plagiarism," and says, “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.”
Adria Petty, daughter of Tom, had previously said, "I brought Beyoncé a number of references and we picked some out together. Most were German modern-dance references, believe it or not. But it really evolved."
