R&B star Beyonce stole the routines from shows like “De La Guarda” and “El Descueve” for the choreography on her “Formation” concert, alleges a professional dancer.
Marlyn Ortiz slammed 34-year-old Beyonce in an Instagram post for allegedly stealing the moves, reported Aceshowbiz.
Ortiz shared a clip of the part which was allegedly stolen by Beyonce.
She wrote alongside the video, “I’m sorry I don’t bash artist! But I respect fellow creative artist…and don’t like to use social media to promote some thing that can be perceived as negativity… BUT @beyonce you have the nerve to steal exact concepts n choreography from other real creative genius.”
“You stole from @breakingsurface you stole the stomping from #delaguarda @fuerzabrutanyc it’s ok to be inspired but at least make the effort to make it your own,” she continued.
While Ortiz mentioned that Beyonce stole the moves on “Partition” music video from Crazy Horse Paris, one user defended the singer, saying that Crazy Horse and other shows were credited in the singer’s tour book.
The user posted, “You tried it. All these people are credited in her tour book! And since you want to mention ‘Partition’ let’s talk about how she literally said herself that she got the ideas from Crazy Horse. Need a link?”
Another wrote, “LMFAO, all these people are on the concert program. And Beyonce been mention Crazy Horse during the Self Titled behind the scenes video (sic).”
Ortiz responded, “Please send picture of credit on tour book.. I actually don’t care about crazy horse.. But please share the other inspirations.. Please send picture.”
She later clarified that she’s not bashing Beyonce.
“I just want say that This is Not a bashing of Beyonce, I enjoy her music and her talent as a singer/ entertainer… She is a fierce woman!
“I just like to defend and credit the little guys.. Who create these amazing shows like #delaguarda and #FuerzaBruta That I had the honour to performe in for many years.”
