Rihanna Sued By Celebrity Photographer David LaChapelle For Lookalike S&M Video

They do have some similarities.  But is it a rip off? We’ll see what the courts say. Read the full story -

Famed photographer David LaChapelle is suing Rihanna over her video for the single “S&M” which he says is a direct derivation of his works.

In paperwork filed yesterday, LaChapelle claims that Rihanna copied the “composition, total concept, feel, tone, mood, theme, colours, props, settings, decors, wardrobe and lighting” in eight of his images for her video, which has been banned in several countries for explicit content.

In one image, Rihanna dons a latex hood which looks remarkably similar to a LaChapelle shot. In another, she wears nothing but newsprint, which is reminiscent of a LaChapelle photo of Lady Gaga.

LaChapelle, who has shot iconic photos for Vogue, Rolling Stone, GQ, and Vanity Fair, is seeking unspecified damages.
