Beyonce finally admits to copying dance moves for her countdown video



   American singer Beyoncé was accused of 'stealing' dance moves for her latest music video for countdown. The star is alleged to have copied several moves for  her single Countdown from a leading Belgian choreographer.
Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker claims Beyoncé is guilty of plagiarism and has hit out at one of the music industry's top selling female artists.

   Speaking to a Danish blog, De Keersmaeker said she had not been asked permission by Beyonce's record label to use her original work.
'I didn't know anything about this. I'm not mad, but this is plagiarism,' she said.

  “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.”
