Beyonce Stole Visual Concepts for Lemonade?


Filmmaker Matthew Fulks is suing Beyonce for ripping off his concepts for her visual album Lemonade...


From TMZ
Matthew Fulks is suing Beyonce and her record label, saying much of the "Lemonade" trailer completely rips off his 2014 short film, "Palinoia." In the suit, he says his project also depicted a "tumultuous relationship."
He says his beef is really over 39 seconds of the trailer, which have a slew of images similar to his movie.
Specifically ... characters in front of graffiti-covered walls, red tinted images, dimly lit parking garages and closeup shots of "overgrown grass." There are more
Fulks says he knows a Senior VP at Columbia Music, Bey's label, saw "Palinoia" sometime in 2015 -- and he thinks the exec stole his ideas for "Lemonade" ... which started shooting at the end of 2015.
Fulks is seeking unspecified damages.









Fun Fact: Last month Beyonce was accused of stealing choreography for her Formation World Tour [click here if you missed that].

Damn, AGAIN?!

But, are we really surprised?

Hell no, she is goat it. I guess if nothing has ever been done to stop her this kind of shit will continue

Your Highness said...

Enough already!

She takes everything and makes it better. But seriously, she needs to ask permission or go credit people for their ideas. How many times folks gotta sue, for her to learn? Smh, hire someone for their creative ideas geesh.

This surprises who? Get in line bruh but count it as a loss!

i am honestly starting to think beyonce's entire career is an experiment on the public to see how long people will continue to praise, credit, and damn near worship a known fraud and thief. this can't be real!

This is just going to far. Showing pictures of the meadow, the parking garage pillars, and just craziness is just crazy. I guess she should do her videos in her house, but then the furniture companies will say "No, that is our furniture!" And will post pics of their furniture saying she paid for it but that is their set design. Really, people.

This thief with her awful 'music' has fans?

Yes BeyoncĂ©’copy's and makes it better, if she is only taking bits and pieces with some similarities and not copying the whole concept it is going to be hard to prove just like all the others. This is not her first rodeo so I am sure each and every time she or someone from her team copied something from another artist they know exactly what they are doing so as to not get sued and lose. So bye Felecia

Snitch, why do you never post the results of these Beyonce got caught stealing posts? I mean I know why. I'm just messy. Like you.

Basically, they get permission from whoever the person sold it to. Starving artists.

Queen of theft

Exactly 4:48- She knows the copyright loopholes, she aint new to this, she's true to this!

She does not take stuff and make it better! Please stop. She just has the funds to make it better quality. She makes stuff too obvious that she copied and she makes it cheaper or trashy. You blind Stans are as disturbed as your queen. Beyonce is a disrespectful bitch. Yes, she is a great stage performer but her singing is not the greatest, she can't write, she's not creative, she can compose or write music, her dancing is nowhere on Janet, Ciara or Aaliyah levels, and she can't act. She has an average to below average music catalog. She is nothing but a circus, the modern day P.T. Barnum. And like Barnum said, "A sucker is born every minute." ALL of her fans are SUCKERS!

she CAN'T compose or write music*

Like Picasso said, “Good artists copy, great artists steal"! Lmao

If that was the case, Picasso's crazy ass should have STOLEN more talent. He is overrated and will never be Van Gogh!

Anonymous said...

Well Van Gogh can also go by the same quote with Jean Millett (sp) some said he paid homeage to him some said he copied his style to a tee and just added a different brushstroke. Like others are accused of doing.

I said it before and I'll say it again..That's one stealing bitch. She steals unknown white artists work from other countries. People that niggas have know clue to who they are. Hope he sue her and the company

LOL @6:59, don't hurt the stans feelings..besides her stans are short bus people anyway. Her camp is already claiming victory for being platinum a whole 6 months later, even though her studio buys most of her albums. BeYawnce is a FRAUD.

Serve her up those papers. Don't be shy about it, either. Talk your head off.

They called her out on The Talk last week for stealing someone's water dance routine. I don't care about that one though. Ben Hur is one of my favorite movies, and, The Roman water bath dance routine was done in the movie Ben Hur. In 1959. That's the only time I've seen the water bath routine. Until now...

That's probably why no one sued over the water dance yet.... but, more papers are on the way...probably for the Hold Up video. That's the BIGGEST copy I've ever seen from her since Countdown.

This nigga will get paid dust like the other 500. Jiggas voice, "Her lawyers stay hula hooping through loopholes working around shit"! On the flipside I hope she doesn't get a dime from her Feyonce website lawsuit!

Wait a minute, I didn't read the entire write up ESPECIALLY this part:

Fulks says, "he knows a Senior VP at Columbia Music, Bey's label, saw "Palinoia" sometime in 2015 -- and he thinks the exec stole his ideas for "Lemonade" ... which started shooting at the end of 2015".

Ummm then sue that muthafucka!

Anonymous said...

@8:34 Idk about the Cater to u one and it's not relevant enough for me to google it but the XO and Dangerously in love ones were tossed out of court.

And THIS is what we're left with and a true, original talent like Prince is gone.

Not only that, the drone masses eat it up.

Wake up ya'll, you're being punked.

@ 9:16 Her name is Des'ree
@ 8:43 Xo was settled out of court for #7 million

Anonymous said...

^^^she spends that amount on rental houses a year. 95+% of her lawsuits she has won and she will this one, hopefully so will Feyonce and MAYBE it may put things into perspective for her!

Anonymous said...

@9:23 No it was not settled in or out of court. A judge said XO and XOXO were not alike and he threw out the $7.1 million lawsuit!

Anonymous said...

It doesn't matter if she won or not. She's a known thief who is using people to sell music that SHE DOES NOT MAKE just for fame. Not just one or two songs but a whole catalog. She has no ambitions of quality music that she made herself that's are classics, give you chills, put you in a daze but ONLY quantity. Enough to tour from people who doesn't have enough intelligence to know the difference.

Its sad the whole beyfake stain saga

Beyonce will continue as long as Jay Z funds her projects. He is desperate to stay relevant and will do this thru Beyonce. So there you go - they are here to stay unless she totally breaks down and I don't wish this on anyone. Sic

Jay has been stepping back into the spotlight the last 3 months. Funds her projects? I've never heard this tea, do tell.

Honey Bun said...

nothing original or unique about this hooker

Anonymous said...

I agree Beyonce cannot function without Jay Z (she needs a man to run her business/life) and he needs her to be relevant. Blue is stuck in the middle but will lean toward her mom when they divorce. She would be better off without him - I think they are toxic to each other and I like them but...

@9:50 Ohhh! That’s why beyonce be laughing holding her mouth at her concert like it’s new to her. She can’t believe everybody fell for her ish.
Jay Z better fund her she’s been by his side in line for 7 years before they were married with his philandering ways. Beyonce said it on a Ellen’s interview in 2001. The year Aaliyah died while she was with Dame dash who Jay Z stole from too.

Jay Z better fund her she’s been by his side waiting in line for 7 years before they were married with his philandering ways. Beyonce said it on a Ellen’s interview. So, from 2001 to 2008 they have been together before marriage. 2001 is the year Aaliyah died while she was with Dame dash who Jay Z stole from too. Thank you, that make sense on how they got together.

Beyonce is like the favorite light skin child that everyone dotes over (due to internalized white supremacy) puts on a pedestal, and is allowed to run amuck taking the other kids things, monopolizing all the attention and no one has the integrity to tell her (or the other light kids in this dynamic) the truth and sat they bad, rude, spoiled azzes down some where

Allihave2say said...

I had to scroll down to say this, after I'll have scroll back up to read, cause I know its good in here…

These allegations explain why Beyonce always rushes into a concert series as so as she drops cd's and videos. She knows that what's done in the dark comes out and she tries to beat the truth to the bank.

i GUESS IF BEYONCE FARTS IN THE MORNING I CAN SUE HER FOR COPYING ME
