Beyonce‘s visual album Lemonade has become a female anthem from start to finish, and the entire piece is even being rumored to be Emmy-worthy. But did she take too much of another artist’s video concept for the song “Hold Up”?
Queen Bey is being accused of stealing the 1997 “Ever Is Over All” video idea from visual artist Pipilotti Rist’s for her “Hold Up” video.
The two video’s are exceptionally similar, almost identical actually. Beyonce has yet to comment but check out the scene-by-scene comparison video and decide for yourself.
The Queen Bey has previously been accused of stealing actual footage from the 2013 New Orleans bounce documentary, That B.E.A.T, for her Formation music video earlier this year as well. But even then we never got an answer from Beyonce herself. So it’s doubtful she’ll ever comment personally on this matter.
Is Bey just out here stealing other people’s ideas without proper permission, or is it all a huge coincidence?
