After Beyonce’s performance at the BMAs on Sunday, she was accused of copying Italian singer Lorella Cuccarini’s routine from last year. Bey tells AOL Music, her performance was drawn out of inspiration. Haters run the world.
“My makeup artist showed me the performance of Lorella Cuccarini a year ago, and it inspired me so much. I then met with the talented people who worked on it. The technology and concept were so genius. Thank god for YouTube or I would have never been exposed to something so inspiring. I never worked so hard on anything in my life as that performance for the Billboard Awards.”
