Beyonce Speaks About Controversial 2011 Billboard performance

HATERS everywhere you go. Although Beyoncé  electrifying performance left millions of viewers with their mouth dropped with her interactive performance of “Run the World (Girls)” at Sunday’s Billboard Music Awards. But soon after she was faced with accusations of copying a previous performer. The Millennium Award recipient is speaking out following the barrage of criticism.

Bey performance automatically  projection-based set drew comparisons to a 2010 performance by Italian singer Lorella Cuccarini. But Beyonce was fully aware of Cuccarini.

“My makeup artist showed me the performance of Lorella Cuccarini a year ago, and it inspired me so much,” she told AOL Music. “I then met with the talented people who worked on it. The technology and concept were so genius.”

She was inspired after discovering Cuccarini’s performance online. “Thank God for YouTube or I would have never been exposed to something so inspiring,” she added. “I never worked so hard on anything in my life as that performance for the Billboard Awards.”

“If anything, it’s a great example of how great of a performer Beyoncé is. It’s just a bare white screen. It’s a technique in video art since the ’80s in terms of frontal projection and interactive things. That’s really nothing new. It’s not even a new technology. It’s just an incredibly simple, awesome storytelling device, and with a performer like Beyoncé it becomes incredibly powerful.”

Unfortunately once again the haters have came out in flock to try to knock Beyonce off her thrown, but she threw shade right back, acknowledging her idea was inspired from the Italian artist, and let's face it she killed it.  So what else is new?  All ideas are copied from the I phone to the EVO , e.t.c....NEXT!!  

Kenzo hopes that fans will be able to relive the performance when B tours to promote her upcoming album 4. “It would be awesome,” he said, “but I don’t know what’s in store exactly.”
