Apparently, famous European photographer, Dave LaChapelle is annoyed by the fact that Rihanna stole his ideas, from his photos printed in Italian Vogue a couple of years ago (’95 to ’02 to be exact), and duplicated the exact same images in her video. LaChapelle expressed his irritation in a tweet to Perez Hilton, who appeared in the video, and Rihanna. Following the tweet, Hilton posted the tweet and side by side photos, showing the original pictures and the duplicated images, on his website. Check them out below.
I wonder what’s next for Rihanna, now that this video has been banned from stations like MTV AND B.E.T., BANNED IN 11 COUNTRIES, AND NOW SHE’S BEING ACCUSED OF COPY RIGHT INFRINGEMENT? GREAT PUBLICITY THOUGH.
