Musician Jennifer Lopez, popularly known as J-Lo has been accused of copycat tactics at the American Music Awards where she copied Beyoncé (Queen B) not only in the outfit but also the hair to the chair dancing and lighting.
J-Lo came under attack from fans and critics alike after her American Music Awards performance Sunday night looked very familiar to some, more especially to that of Beyoncé.
The singer performed a sexy duet Sunday night with male artist Maluma at the awards show and social media immediately started pointing out the similarities to Beyoncé’s 2014 Grammys performance with her husband, rapper Jay-Z.
Lopez sported a black bodysuit with cutouts for “Pa’ Ti” and “Lonely” much like Beyoncé did when she sang “Drunk In Love” at the Grammys.
Jennifer Lopez has been known for copying several acts over the years
Both women also rocked short, wet-looking hairstyles and got sultry with their dancing which included coloured lighting. Beyoncé has also done the routine during her concert tour.
Twitter was all over it, with everything from those saying Lopez had copied Beyoncé to some suggesting it could have been a bit of an homage to the Queen B.
A few who defended Lopez’s performance pointed out that Beyoncé has been called out multiple times over the years for producing art that looked similar to the work of others, most recently last year with some of the music videos for her album “The Lion King: The Gift.”
