Taylor Swift has copied Beyoncé’s act once again, according to Beyonce fans. It’s not the first time the singer was accused of ripping off Beyonce, so Nexter.org gathered some of these cases.

“You Need to Calm Down” video

Taylor Swift’s “You Need to Calm Down” music video is the main topic of discussion nowadays as it openly supports the LGBTQ+ community.

Now people are out here claiming that Tay’s “You Need to Calm Down” video is a direct rip-off of Beyoncé’s “Party” video. Let’s start by watching both?

 

And here’s the living legend known as Queen Bey:

 

Twitter users point out that there are actually a lot of similarities between the two videos:

Either way, this isn’t the first time Taylor has been accused of ripping off Beyoncé. Twitter fully lost it during her debut performance of “ME!” at the Billboard Music Awards, which started with a drumline that had a verrrrry similar vibe to Beyoncé’s iconic Coachella performance.

Swift opened a debut performance of her single “Me!” with a marching band dressed in pink. She then appeared on stage, striking a pose.

“Sure, Beyoncé doesn’t own the copyright on pregnancy, but to the millions who watched last night as Taylor delivered a baby boy and girl onstage at the MGM Grand, it sure felt like plagiarism,” wrote entertainment blogger Emily Brooks, who cited Swift’s “total lack of creativity” in imitating Beyoncé so closely, from the birthing of fraternal twins right down to the ultimate decision to undergo an emergency C-section at her doctor’s discretion.

“Look What You Made Me Do”

When Swift released her video for the song “Look What You Made Me Do” in 2017, some said it appeared to mirror parts of Beyoncé’s 2016 “Lemonade” visual album.

One fan tweeted side-by-side screengrabs of Swift’s “Look What You Made Me Do” teaser and video from Lemonade, captioning it “Lemonade and Minute Maid.” Added another: “Taylor Swift wanna be Beyoncé so bad.”
