Rihanna’s Music Video Causes Legal Trouble

Hip-hop princess Rihanna released her latest single “You Da One” Dec. 23 and fans are buzzing about the latest hit.

Since being posted a little over a week ago the video has received 13,888,554 views with 112,524 likes and 16,180 dislikes.

While Rihanna may have worked hard to help create “You Da One,” there is a certain shot in the video that could land the singer in some hot water with the judicial system, for using another artists work in her video.

HuffingtonPost.com said, “[…] Perhaps the most striking moment of the video is when a naked (or nude bodysuited, as it turns out,) Rihanna slithers around looking gorgeous while black and white geometric patterns are projected onto her skin. The result is simple, psychedelic, and totally brilliant.”

According to HuffingtonPost.com, photographer Solve Sundsbo did something almost identical for a ‘Numero 93’ shot.

This is not the first time Rihanna has been accused of copying another person’s vision.

RadarOnline.com reported that in 2011, photographer David LeChapelle sued Rihanna, her record label and the video director for using his copyrighted images, without consent, in the music video for “S&M.”
