Choreographer Says Beyonce Stole ‘Countdown’ Video Moves

Beyonce is being accused of plagiarism for the second time since releasing her fourth studio album ‘4.’ After taking heat for lead single “Run The World (Girls),” new allegations claims she stole the dance moves in the recently released “Countdown” video from a Belgian choreographer.

According to, Beyonce copied her routine from two of Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker’s productions.

Keersmaeker was quoted writing on 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. 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.”
