Taylor Swift's Video Director Responds to Beyonce Comparisons

Taylor Swift released a preview for her “Look What You Made Me Do” music video on Friday and the clip led to Beyonce‘s fans comparing it to her Lemonade visual album.

Now, the 27-year-old singer’s video director Joseph Kahn is speaking out to slam accusations that Taylor copied the imagery in Bey‘s videos for her own video.

“I’ve worked with Beyoncé a few times. She’s an amazing person. The #LWYMMDvideo is not in her art space. Love and respect to Bey,” he tweeted.

One of the shots that has caused a lot of the speculation is the one of Taylor lined up next to her male backup dancers. Fans have said this looks like Bey‘s “Formation” video.

Joseph previously directed Taylor‘s videos for “Bad Blood,” “Blank Space,” “Wildest Dreams,” and “Out of the Woods.” He also worked with Bey on Destiny’s Child‘s “Say My Name” and “Jumpin’ Jumpin.”

    How stupid that type of lineup has been done by everyone from Pat Benatar to Janet Jackson to Britney Spears. One would think Beyonce fans would not accuse others because they did not like when Beyonce as accused of stealing for her Lemonade video.

    Wtf is an art space? Everyone has their own unique art space.

    I can’t stand Beyonce either, but I’m sitting back laughing my tail off at the basic blonde betty who is pretending to be a badass snake getting bombed before her video is even out of the gate.

    This new angry Taylor is hilarious because she really has nothing to be angry about.

    The formation was not created by Beyoncé, it has been around for years. There is no such thing as an original video, everything old always become new again. Bee hive check out the history of world. I know most her fans are not over the age of 30 and it shows when you attack other artists without checking out all the facts.
