David LaChapelle is Suing Rihanna For S&M
48-year-old David LaChapelle is suing Rihanna for her duplicate sense of directing in “S&M”. The director is known for his directing gig for movies Krumped and Rize. LaChapelle complains how Rihanna couldn’t have found a better and creative director for her music video.
“Why a worldwide celebrity is not able to afford a creative director, who creates individual concepts and staging’s, is incomprehensible for me. To create new things within the creative cosmos, you can only expect this to come from a real genius, there is no doubt about that. However in this case there are no real genius who created their own work instead they stole ideas from a creative talent. Furthermore every other creative professional should realize how supremely embarrassing it is to copy the work of colleagues from the artistic world and then to be praised for it. While I really respect Rihanna’s talents as a musician, nevertheless it is important to respect the creations of others, even young talents, and not to copy their work without any legitimacy for earning money with it in order to make money.”
