Beyoncé is being accused of stealing a Belgian choreographer's dance moves in her new music video for the song "Countdown." In the vid, Bey dresses up like Audrey Hepburn and sports a variety of costumes from the mod era of the '60s and a pixie cut wig, too. The preggers star looks super cute.
Now, Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker is saying Beyoncé lifted her moves.
Writing on a Danish blog, Keersmaeker says, "I didn't know anything about this. I'm not mad, but this is plagiarism… This is stealing. They took pieces from Achterland and Rosas danst Rosas...It's a bit rude, I must say. 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."
What do you think of these accusations laid at Beyoncé's door?
