Did You Miss It? Taylor Swift Slammed For ‘Ripping Off Beyonce’ With ‘Calm Down’ Music Video

Published: Tuesday 18th Jun 2019 by Rashad

Taylor Swift just can’t seem to catch a break.

First ruffling the wings of Beyonce‘s beloved fan group, the #Beyhive, when she was accused of ripping off the R&B icon’s ‘Formation’ video with her ‘Look What You Made Me Do’ visual (click here to read more on that), Swift was stung again after some believed her 2019 Billboard Music Awards performance was eerily similar to scenes from Bey’s Netflix special, ‘Homecoming.’

Now, not even a day after the making headlines for the premiere of her star-studded ‘You Need To Calm Down’ music video (which includes a reconciliation with former foe Katy Perry), the 29-year-old’s being slammed with new swaggerjacking allegations.  This time, fans are pointing to Bey’s 2011 ‘Party’ video as the source of inspiration for Taylor’s ‘Calm’ video.

More inside:

 

Tay-Tay could barely enjoy the praise of her star-studded music video before some started noting similarities between it and Bey’s ‘Party’ video.  Read some social media user complaints below:

 

Swift has yet to respond to the hoop-la.

  3. Banks no tyra June 18, 2019

    Beyonce is not an icon she is a diva that is it. , Diva, who can’t sing like Whitney Houston, and that bbma icon award belong to Whitney even after her death…but they kissed this b**** ass when she was alive. When she still can’t hit the notes like Whitney Houston. Hunny.

    • Jason June 18, 2019

      She doesn’t sing like Whitney, but they’re both A-Rated vocalist according to vocal coaches in all backgrounds of music. I’m sure Bey is annoyed with the Bey hive, just like she was a couple weeks ago! She respected Whitney, and all the legendary vocalist/performers. Trying to discredit her talent, aside from your observation that she is inspired by great work, and HAS ADMITTED TO USING CONCEPTS FROM RESEARCH ON YOUTUBE; is just you being petty. Looks like you have more in common with the petty and annoying section of the hive than you’ll admit!! But tell me about something you know… being redundant!

  6. Pedonika June 18, 2019

    I guess Beyonce also invented blond hair and illiteracy 🤷‍♂️

    • Nicki Maraj June 18, 2019

      No CardiB invented illiteracy

      • Bodaky Yakky June 18, 2019

        Cute. She was also…

        The first solo female MC to top the Billboard Hot 100

        In September 2017, Cardi became the first female rapper to go No. 1 in nearly 20 years WITHOUT A FEATURE.

        Longest-running No. 1 by solo female rapper

        First woman to chart first three entries in the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs’ Top 10 simultaneously.

        A Grammy-WINNING rapper.

        First rapper with first three singles in the Hot 100’s Top 10 simultaneously.

        First woman to have five simultaneous Top 10 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart

        Scores second Billboard No. 1 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart

        Most simultaneous titles on the Billboard Hot 100

        Invasion of Privacy charts 13 entries on the Hot 100, passing Beyoncé for the most simultaneous titles on the ranking by a solo female.

        Class dismissed, sis.

    What happened to the Beyhive? This type of behavior was cute in 2016 but in 2019 it’s starting to come off like the Beyhive (which I’ve always considered myself to be) is insecure. Every week the Beyhive is attacking somebody else.

    • Bam June 19, 2019

      It has never been “cute” behavior.

  8. Meme June 18, 2019

    Do y’all want to go thru the long list of videos, concepts and songs Beyoncé has stolen? Let’s not.

  9. Led June 19, 2019

    Taylor Swift has showed us many times with her record sales that she is immune to the Beehive stings.
    I mean they need to stop acting like Beyonce is above stealing from no I’m sorry “inspired” by other artists

  10. Clarkson June 19, 2019

    Beehive u guys should stop trolling successful artistes who have won album of the year at the Grammys twice (something beyonce can never have).

    Taylor’s song is debuting in the top 5, it may even knock old town road of the number 1 spot.
    Before I let go hasn’t still reached the top 40 even after a lame dance challenge that never took off.
    Every song beyonce has released has been flops.

    The two songs with DJ Khaled, flopped

    The song with eminem, flopped. I’m sure u guys can’t even remember this song.LOL

    The song she did with nicki minaj, flopped

    The one she did with Jay z, flopped

  11. Urg June 19, 2019

    Top 3 most delusional fan base
    1 The Beyhive
    2 The Barbz
    3 The Bardi Gang

    • Lanafan1 June 19, 2019

      The Bardi Gang ain’t delusional though lol

      • Urg June 19, 2019

        Yes they are always bring up ole girl Nicki when defending their fav….just like them Barbz always bring up Cardi like Nicki did not screw up her own carrer

  12. Unnatural June 19, 2019

    Irony of accusing someone of copying from queen copycat beyonce. These days she just steals and not even apologize for it. Beehive needs to stop before they really kill what’s left of beyonce career.

  13. Meee June 19, 2019

    In what video has beyonce celebrated LGBT pride? Ion c it

  14. I cant June 19, 2019

    Beyonce copies people all the time. So who gives a f*** #beyhive. So people think its ok for beyonce to copy people, but not ok for others 🤔

  15. QueenJanet June 19, 2019

    Beyhives need to stop acting immature! Beyonce loves Taylor and she even attended her birthday party:)
    Beyonce and Taylor are strong women!!!

  16. Moti25 June 19, 2019

    Swift does these things on purpose. Attention w****

  17. Maxx June 19, 2019

    Honey Beyoncé didn’t invent backyard pool parties or folks cooking in a trailer home on T.V. Ya’ll really reaching because your favorite is a snooze fest & you all are trying to keep her relevant. Just stop it.

  18. thanosoftitan June 19, 2019

    Beyoncé has to be absolutely embarrassed by most of the members of her hive.

    A group of miscreants experiencing intense psychosomatic delusions.

    However, there are a few Beyoncé supporters who are actually reasonable, sane, and intelligent.

  19. Meteorite June 19, 2019

    Christina Aguilera’s “Your Body” music video had similar imagery and yes I know “Party” came out before “Your Body”
    I’m just saying.
