Beyoncé Accused Of Stealing Another Artist’s Video For “Hold Up”
By now, everyone knows Beyoncé’s striking video for the dreamy number “Hold Up” off her latest visual masterpiece Lemonade. The beautiful marigold Roberto Cavalli dress, the mystical abandoned streets of what seems to be New Orleans, her visceral rage when she takes a baseball bat to every vehicle in sight as explosives go off in the distance – it’s truly a spectacle that only Queen Bey could dream up.
Or maybe not. The pop megastar is now being accused of copying visual artist Pipilotti Rist’s 1997 project “Ever Is Over All” for the video. And in truth, the two clips look alarmingly similar, but the songstress has yet to comment on the matter.
Watch the side-by-side comparison above and Rist’s original video below to decide for yourself.
