The Lebanese entertainment industry is no stranger to recycling. That’s right, when it comes to borrowing ideas both directors and celebrities don’t hold back. I’m not sure what goes on in their heads when they decided to blatantly reproduce the work of some of the world’s biggest names in music. I mean, come on they got us a fake PSY (Gangnam Style) this weekend and thought we wouldn’t notice. That’s insulting and pretty racist if you ask me.
Here’s the thing, Beyonce, Britney and Lady Gaga are international superstars. If they think that they can sneakily “borrow” a scene from one of their videos without getting noticed then they must assume we don’t own TVs or computers which is also quite insulting. Either way, they’ll deny these allegations to the last minute and may even claim they’re the ones getting copied.
Check out these scenes and make your own conclusions.
