Beyoncé accused of "stealing" dance moves

Beyoncé
Single Ladies singer Beyoncé has apparently been accused of plagiarism from Belgian choreographer Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker who says the singer copied her dance moves for her new music video Countdown. Digital Spy reports that the video's director Adria Petty has previously confirmed that she and Beyoncé took inspiration from a number of European sources. Adria told MTV News: "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." However, Anne has criticised the star's team for not contacting her for directly using her choreography. She told a Danish blog: "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." She added: "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 honoured? Look, I've seen local school kids doing this. That's a lot more beautiful." What do you think? Watch a clip highlighting the similarities between Beyoncé and Anne's work HERE.
