Beyoncé has beautiful and seemingly silky-smooth skin; recently her radiating skin shinned through in her latest music video "Countdown." Have you seen it yet? 
It's amazing! Personally, I love the layout of the video, which feels like "a pop-art book or art gallery;" furthermore, it is full of fabulous references and many critics agree - to see two critics give their reviw click here. However, there has been charges brought forth of plagiarism by Belgian choreographer, Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker who claims that Beyoncé has crossed the line from referencing to copying. In a statement that was translated from Dutch to English, De Keersmaeker says: "This is plagiarism ... This is stealing. What's rude about it is that they don't even bother about hiding it. They seem to think they could do it because it's a famous work."

After all is said and done I still love the "Countdown" video. Similar to her references to Audrey Hepburn in "Happy Face,"  
Beyoncé obviously incorporated  De Keersmaeker's work into her music video. I see no harm done; all I see is a successful video that utilized great pieces of work.
