Beyonce may be talented, but she is being slammed once again for being about as unoriginal as they come after her Mrs. Carter World Tour look book revealed the R&B Queen copied one of the looks from Estonian singer Kerli.
What good is talent if the artist isn’t original?
We don’t mean to upset the BeyHive here but is Mrs. Carter so uninspired lately that she can’t even think for herself? Or at least give a less known artist a huge shout-out after she steals their creative ideas?
Beyonce has already been caught copying other artists for her “Countdown” music video, Pepsi ad commercial, and even her Super Bowl outfit and this time she’s biting off of 26-year-old Kerli.
The photo of Beyonce in her Mrs. Carter Show tour book features the “Bow Down” songstress rocking an a spray-painted white ensemble with wing-like shoulders against a simple gray background while she herself has also been covered in white paint.
Sounds pretty cool right?
Indeed it is, but it wasn’t Bey’s idea.
Kerli rocked the same exact look earlier this year on her album Utopia.
According to a Facebook post made by the young songstress, however, there is a chance that Bey’s camp did actually purchase or retrieve the unique look from Kerli.
“I gotta say it’s pretty damn cool to see Queen B Beyonce rock something I spray painted white on my patio for Utopia 8) The dress was originally nude and made by the brilliant Rocky Gothercole,” she wrote before adding pictures of hearts.
So perhaps Bey’s camp had permission to steal the look from Kerli? Either way, it’s a bit sad that Mrs. Carter and her people wouldn’t post their own special shout-out for the singer since she is the one to thank for the fabulous photo.
Either way, it seems like it might be Beyonce’s turn to give a quick bowing down to Kerli… or at least a thank you.
To be fair, however, Nicki Minaj also rocked the same look in her music video for “Va Va Voom” but she opted for the original tan dress rather than the custom white frock that Kerli made on her porch.
Meanwhile, Beyonce may be having trouble coming up with new ideas, but she has no problem making outrageous demands.
The R&B megastar has demanded the be placed in only the largest dressing room at O2 after she arrived for the concert via a private helicopter.
London certainly got their share of Diva attitude on Monday night when the staff had to scurry to meet all of the star’s demands.
Now I know what you’re thinking – what’s wrong with Baddie Bey wanting a large dressing room? She deserves a large dressing room right?
While that is true, Baddie Bey is still one person. The dressing room she demanded is usually used to house entire sports teams according to The Evening Standard.
Blue Ivy’s mommy was so determined to have the largest quarters that she even passed up the opportunity to be the first celebrity to step foot into O2’s newly refurbished dressing rooms – which were the rooms that had originally been offered to her.
“The new dressing rooms are superb – it’s like you’ve stepped into a luxury apartment,” the source said. “But she surprised everyone by turning them down, going for the larger ones that are used by sports teams when they play at O2.”
Silly O2. Don’t you know Queen Bey doesn’t do apartments? No matter how luxuriously furnished they are.
All jokes aside, however, we are starting to miss the Mrs. Carter that was a little more down to Earth. At this rate, she’s well on her way to being a grown, African American, female version of Justin Bieber – and nobody wants that.
