Beyonce Addresses “Countdown” Video Plagirism Accusations: It’s Called Inspiration Man… Can I Live?!?

- By Bossip Staff

Regardless of how pregnant Beyonce is, she’ll always have to deal with something, real baby bump, fake baby bump, stealing dance moves, etc. With the latest accusations stemming from her new video “Countdown”, Beyonce breaks it all the way down in regards to sampling:

“Clearly, the ballet ‘Rosas danst Rosas’ was one of many references for my video ‘Countdown.’ It was one of the inspirations used to bring the feel and look of the song to life.”

“I was also paying tribute to the film, ‘Funny Face’ with the legendary Audrey Hepburn. My biggest inspirations were the ’60s, the ’70s, Brigitte Bardot, Andy Warhol, Twiggy and Diana Ross. I’ve always been fascinated by the way contemporary art uses different elements and references to produce something unique.”

It’s obvious Beyonce is inspired by a lot of things, so maybe her next video should be like a VH1 Pop Up giving a little histroy and credit where it’s due.

Unfortunately, this probably wouldn’t still wouldn’t solve her problem! Oh welL, HATE IT OR LOVE IT… Beyonce is going to do what she wants – simple as that!
