Did Taylor Swift copied Beyoncé Formation video

When Taylor Swift unveiled an excerpt of her upcoming "Look What You Made Me Do" video on Friday, one of the shots in the preview drew immediate comparisons and social media criticism for its likeness to Beyoncé's "Formation." Following the controversy, director Joseph Kahn, turned to Twitter to downplay any similarities between the two videos.

"I've worked with Beyoncé a few times. She's an amazing person. The #LWYMMDvideo is not in her art space. Love and respect to Bey," Kahn tweeted. "Also there's something to that 'formation' shot I painted out and you haven't seen yet. Stay tuned Sunday."

The "Look What You Made Me Do" video will premiere Sunday night during the MTV Video Music Awards.

Kahn – who directed Swift's "Bad Blood" and "Blank Space" videos as well as Destiny Child's "Say My Name" – said that he's actually "copying [an] obscure K Pop video made in North Korean prison in 2006" rather than the Lemonade video.

Kahn, who started "concepting and prepping" the video in January, said his special effects team is working around the clock to ensure the video is ready in time for its premiere.

"I love collaborating with @taylorswift13. She's as awesome as it gets. I am one lucky dude (who tweets too much)," Kahn added while calling out the singer's critics. "A young self made woman works hard with talent and intelligence while staying grounded and polite to everyone. Scandalous."

'He kicked me in the stomach, I peed on myself. He body-slammed me to the floor twice and told me he would kill me, no one will find my body.: In her journey to recovery, domestic violence survivor Christine R. M. Dennis-Freeman tells it all

The tragic story of Christine R. M. Dennis-Freeman, like that of Agnes Yarlee and Diane Hart before her, has brought the issue of domestic abuse out of the dark unspoken place it thrives and into the open.
It's horrendous that it takes the death of women, or an attempt to kill women, to get a serious debate  on the issue of domestic abuse. Discussing domestic violence in our society is a real taboo and most men within the Liberian society, don't even find the topic worth their time, as compared to discussing sports, politics and corruption. 
But these women mention above are just the tip of the iceberg.

Defying the odds, Mrs. Dennis-Freeman refuses to keep her mouth shut and go with the flow of the Liberian society.  She courageously sat in a wheel chair up to 1:30am, sharing her story with C Liberia Clearly.  In her own words, she walked us through the day that led to her horrific story.

At the La Pa Grill on 6th Avenue in downtown Helena, Collins and other members of the self-described “progressive ticket” watched and waited for the results of the 2017 election.
