They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery — except when Beyonce brazenly steals from others.
When Beyonce’s career is over in a couple of years, the untalented singer will only be remembered for ripping off the creative works of others. Billboard magazine, which usually writes puff pieces in servile deference to Beyonce, wrote a particularly scathing op-ed piece about Beyonce’s shameless thievery today.
“Any artist, including Beyoncé, can wear whatever another artist wore, but that multiplicity gets suspicious and easily pegged as stealing,” Billboard writes.
After listing Beyonce’s more notorious creative thefts over the years, the music magazine concludes:
But more bothersome than Bey’s inspiration-turned-imitation act – and less subtle as her career progresses – is that she’s playing off the risks that other artists have been brave enough to take (and appropriately praised for) instead of challenging herself and taken some herself.
Perhaps visual and dance concepts don’t come as naturally to her as vocal prowess, but I’m doubtful that she can recruit those for which it does. Even as a vocal performer, Beyonce is more of a canvas than a creator.
