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.
Rapper T.I.’s hard work promoting his album, Trouble Man: Heavy Is the Head, has paid off. Trouble Man, which dropped last Tuesday, moved an impressive 179,000 units in first week sales, earning him the #2 spot on Billboard’s Top 200 behind singer Taylor Swift. Trouble Man bested T.I.’s previous studio effort, No Mercy, which dropped Dec. 7, 2010, selling over 159,000 copies in its first week of release.
