14 Ideas Beyonce Allegedly Stole
Beyonce is a genius. We all know this. But even geniuses borrow ideas. Beyonce has borrowed her fair share of ideas to the point that she’s even been accused of jacking concepts from people and not giving proper credit. Here are a few times she was accused of stealing someone’s idea. Do they all have merit? Or are people just hating. You tell us.
