!! OMG, whips and chains: David LaChapelle sends Rihanna a slap !!


Rihanna-David-LaChapelle.jpg

Ruh-roh. Looks like I wasn't the only one who didn't like Rihanna's video for S&M. Celebrity photographer David LaChapelle filed a lawsuit yesterday against the pop star for copying eight of his images. From the pink latex bodysuit to the hog-tie rope swing, LaChapelle says S&M rips off his "composition, total concept, feel, tone, mood, theme, colors, props, settings, decors, wardrobe and lighting."

Imitation is a form of flattery. Chill out, LaChapelle.

I'm sorry but he's fucking crazy. I don't love the video or anything but looking at those images doesn't make me think "copy cat". Images from both look like hack bullshit either way and I could probably find at least a dozen videos or photoshoots that look like this stuff without even trying. Colorful/saturated S&M/fetish randomness? Not THAT original. Certainly not worth a law suit.
