Beyonce Reps Shut Down Video Theft Claims


Over the weekend Beyonce surprise released the video for her new single 'Formation' followed by claims she used unauthorized clips from a documentary about New Orleans bounce music [click here if you missed that].

Not so fast...

Beyonce's reps tell Entertainment Weekly,
"The documentary footage was used with permission and licensed from the owner of the footage. They were given proper compensation. The footage was provided to us by the filmmaker’s production company. The filmmaker is listed in the credits for additional photography direction. We are thankful that they granted us permission.”

So!!!! I can’t stand her ole fake thieving ass. If you were so original why didn't you and your team create your own footage? Talking bout reppin NO. Where your ass was at when the Levees broke? But you want somebody to believe you and your Red Lobster recipient gave 1.5 million to a cause for Black people, man keep that shit moving. Ole wanna be hard ass. You know you ain't about that life. You ain't fooling me with that trash. I see you.

Better get cho ass in formation and step off Chica. Oh my bad, you are Creole, Native American and Black, right? Your ‘multi-racial’ ass wants our Black money tho huh.

You Don't Care About Black People!

Actually "anonymous", I don't let "pop culture" or "pop artists" dictate my comings, goings, or well being, so I don't get my emotions caught up into what they do or say. It's entertainment. Take it for what it is....Beyonce will never see your rant and wouldn't care one way or another. Just saying.

^^^^Just Saying? You're over your head in pop culture which explains why you commented. You're the one letting your emotions get the best of you by thinking everyone is mad for just being honest. But Beyonce will never see your rant.

Sigh...

Lol co-sign @ 406pm. She ain't no different and they all hate the truth. And the actual creator says they were still taken without permission. So somebody lying. Why would the originator lie though? So who we gonna believe? Someone who is notorious for stealing. Or someone who actually got their work stolen. Smh. Do better.
