Rihanna Accused of Stealing More Concepts for Music Video

Posted by Katie F. on February 10th, 2011


More evidence has been found that Rihanna copied concepts for the video for her newest single “S&M.” Philip Paulus, a 19-year-old fashion photographer from Germany, shot an editorial called Paperworld in August 2010. One of the shots involved a girl in a long, voluminous dress behind plastic sheets taped to the wall. The image is very similar to a scene in Rihanna’s video.

This isn’t the first accusation of copying that Rihanna has faced. Earlier in the week, several pictures from photographer David LaChapelle were compared to scenes in the video to show the striking similarity. Maybe she should try to be less obvious about her inspiration next time.
