Beyonce accused of plagiarizing from Petite Noir


Beyonce has been accused of plagiarizing African artist, Petite Noir's, "La Maison Noir: The Gift and the Curse" video for her "Spirit" video from "The Lion King: The Gift." A video comparison was posted, as well as frame by frame comparisons from the art and fashion director of "The Gift and the Curse," Gabrielle Kannemeyer.

Well the Lion King is basically stolen from Kimba the White Lion and Beyonce gets accused of stealing every single era, so I guess this isn't surprising. I wonder if this happening again and also Beyonce's album flopping (predicted for 949 copies in UK and only like #2 or #3 in the US with 49k) will make her stop stealing and also start promoting her albums again. I love Beyonce as a performer, artist, and vocalist, but her constant stealing is yikes.
