You’ve probably heard the rumors and internet pandemonium of folks accusing Beyonce, who was honored with the Millennium Award on Sunday, of stealing her Billboard Music Awards performance of “Run the World (Girls)” from an artist named Lorella Cuccarini.
she responded today telling AOL Music today:
“My makeup artist showed me the performance of Lorella Cuccarini a year ago, and it inspired me so much. I then met with the talented people who worked on it. The technology and concept were so genius. Thank god for YouTube or I would have never been exposed to something so inspiring. I never worked so hard on anything in my life as that performance for the Billboard Awards.”
