Beyonce Stole Someone’s Video

Once again, people are accusing Beyonce of stealing choreography. This time for her epileptic dance number in her just released video “Countdown,” the point of which is to count down from 10. It’s part The Count from Sesame Street, part music I don’t want to listen to.

Beyonce is accused of stealing from Belgian contemporary choreographer Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker. Someone even made a comparison video of similar dance sequences. I don’t have to tell you, in the cutthroat world of choreographed music video dance, this is serious business.

This isn’t the first time Beyonce has been caught copying either. People have noted “Single Ladies” and a Billboard awards performance seemed largely “inspired” by other choreographers.

Clearly there’s only one way to settle this. A dance-off. It goes without saying that this will take place in a vat of Jell-O. Winner gets to claim ownership of the choreography. Loser loses their top. Rawr.
