Video Director Accuses Beyonce Of Copying Taylor Swift
Man, man, man. Someone wants smoke with Beyonce stans today.
If you’ll recall, Taylor Swift kicked up some dust with her Kidz Bop Formation knockoff “Look What You Made Me Do” last week. Fans called out her video set design and costuming that looked suspiciously like a bargain basement version of vibes Beyonce served in her Lemonade visual album.
Now, “Look What You Made Me Do” director Joseph Kahn is speaking out saying that Taylor’s clear mimicry wasn’t what we all saw at all. In fact, he believes Beyonce is the one doing the idea swiping around here. As he told the Los Angeles Times:
In an interview with the Los Angeles Times, Kahn addressed online critics that he’s been sparring with many on Twitter who found visual similarities between “Look What You Made Me Do” and Beyoncé’s groundbreaking “Formation” video.
“It’s not ‘Formation’ at all,” Kahn said. “They try to say she’s wearing a black crop top and Beyoncé wore a black crop top. But they don’t realize in 2015 in ‘Bad Blood,’ Taylor Swift was wearing a black crop top. I really do think, by the way, that Beyoncé copied ‘Bad Blood.’”
Now we aren’t sure if old boy is blind or…what. But honestly NOTHING Beyonce has done looks remotely like “Bad Blood” in the slightest, as far as we can tell.
And if you have four minutes of your life to waste, here is what “Bad Blood” looks like:
Hmm…do YOU see any similarities between…whatever that was and anything Beyonce put out in ‘Lemondade?’ Maybe we missed it…
