Is Sasha Fierce From The Future…Or The Past?

November 29th, 2008 // 13 Comments

The Daily Mail claims that it’s no coincidence that Beyoncé Knowles has been dressing up like a cat burglar lately on stage. The publication claims to have pinpointed the various futuristic looks the “Single Ladies” singer has “stolen” for her looks from her new album.

It would appear that B’s latest fashions were inspired by fellow pop stars Kylie Minogue, Rihanna, Jennifer Lopez and George Michael. The publication also claims that Beyoncé was inspired by the scene in Mr. & Mrs. Smith in which Angelina Jolie descends on a rope wearing a trenchcoat for one of her on-stage entrances, a device also used in the past by Britney Spears.

What do you think? Is this a coincidence, creative license or thievery?

    Is she SUPPOSED to look like the robot from METROPOLIS in the first pic?

    It should be noted, also, that Kylie, in turn, purposefully stole that look from Cybermen in Doctor Who. Seriously, her costume designer was a big Doctor Who fan and took the idea.

    she LOVES to copy or steal people’s stuff doesn’t she!

  4. Kat

    Unoriginal wench! She steals everything!!

  5. Molly

    Because everyone else in entertainment is wholly inventive and original? Let her be.

    do you think when she saw herself in the mirror she said. ” do you think this robot costume makes my ass look REALLY huge?” “I mean bigger than normal huge?”

    yeah…she’s curvy and all. and there’s nothing wrong with that. but the robot outfit is doing absolutely nothing for her hips.

    It’s Thierry Mugler.

    It actually looks a heck of a lot more like the Hajime Sorayama pin up art. Especially the helmet with the side antennae. Google it for examples.

    exactly what I have been thinking. Regurgitated with nothing new here.

  12. Jerry

    and what’s the point, if you review anything from Madonna in the last 10 to 15 years you would not find anything she has not borrowed\stolen from other artist

    I honestly have never seen an over-weight robot before…

    Definitely makes me chuckle some. This is NOT a good look.
