Rihanna’s “We Found Love” video just dropped, but some folks are still talking about her “S&M” clip – especially after photographer David LaChapelle accused her of copying his pictures for some of the vid’s racy scenes.
Asking for $1 million in damages, LaChapelle alleged that Riri copied his poses, lighting, wardrobe and props. We have to admit, we saw the similarities, too. However, the two have come to an agreement and Rihanna settled the case for, of course, an “undisclosed sum” which David is “happy with,” according to NY Post.
He said: “I like RiRi. This is not personal, it’s strictly business. Musicians commonly pay to sample music or use someone’s beats and there should be no difference when sampling an artist’s visuals.”
Good point. Now, back to watching the crazy “We Found Love” video!
