Taylor Swift's Music Video Director Claims Beyoncé's Lemonade Copied Swift's 'Bad Blood' Video

Taylor Swift's Music Video Director Claims Beyoncé's Lemonade Copied Swift's 'Bad Blood' Video
Music video director Joseph Kahn made headlines in August when he shot down claims that he referenced visuals from Beyoncé’s 2016 Lemonade album in the music video for Taylor Swift‘s biting new single “Look What You Made Me Do.”

But now, rather than playing defense, Kahn is going on the offense — claiming it was Beyoncé who was in fact copying images in his and Swift’s 2015 video for “Bad Blood” when Bey made Lemonade the following year.

In an interview with the Los Angeles Times Thursday while promoting his new movie Bodied at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival, the

The Beyhive may see similarities between a teaser clip of Taylor Swift‘s video for her biting new single “Look What You Made Me Do” and Beyoncé’s 2016 Lemonade visual album, but Swift’s video director Joseph Kahn isn’t having it.

On Friday night, the Grammy-winning director — who shot Swift’s “Bad Blood,” “Out of the Woods,” “Wildest Dreams” and “Blank Space” videos as well as Destiny’s Child’s “Say My Name” and “Jumpin’ Jumpin'” — tweeted his reaction to fan speculation that Tay was making a dig at Bey.

“I’ve worked with Beyoncé a few times,” he wrote.

From J. Lo to Whitney Houston, Why the 2000 GRAMMYs Are as Memorable as Ever

As the music industry plans to hand out awards for the best of 2014, it’s hard not to reflect on the GRAMMYs ceremony that happened just 15 years prior. The year was 2000, but in actuality it was a reflection of 1999, when just about anything could happen. Jennifer Lopez launched her musical career, Britney Spears brought back the Catholic schoolgirl outfit, and TLC was suddenly a group again (and not just a TV channel). But the year was more than that. And the 42nd annual Grammy Awards attempted to capture that – for better or worst.

Let’s look back on all the glory of 2000 ceremony 15 years later.

Before she was J. Lo – or Jenny from the block – Lopez was just an actress-turned-singer. But you wouldn’t know it at the awards. When she walked out in the green Versace dress to present the first award of the evening with David Duchovny, the last

Beyonce's 10 Best Videos
Is Beyonce our most consistently great video artist? It's hard to come up with a true competitor whose visual output is as cool, fun, sexy, and sincerely provocative as Beyonce's, and frankly, why would you want to? Beyonce's videos stand on their own as defiant and powerful artistic moments, and today we choose the ten best clips in her solo videography. (We'll have to revisit her Destiny's Child work another day. I think "Lose My Breath," "Say My Name," and "Bugaboo" would be tops there. Maybe "Emotions" too? It's already too much to think about.) Surely you've seen and adored Beyonce's newest clip for "7/11" that featured mad, "Ray of Light"-type edits and the goofiest choreography of Ms. Knowles' career. We loved it so much that we immediately had to wonder if it was her greatest video moment. Join us for our list and throw down your
