Beyonce has been heavily scrutinized for her 2011 Billboard Music performance. Naysayers have accused her of  “coping” Lorella Cuccarini.  Beyonce has now confirmed that shew drew inspiration for her performance after seeing  a performance by Italian pop singer Lorella Cuccerini in 2010.

Read what Bey had to say below.

“My makeup artist showed me the performance of Lorella Cuccarini a year ago, and it inspired me so much,” Beyonce tells AOL Music, exclusively. “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.”

Most, if not all, artists draw inspiration from someone or something, so I don’t see the big deal. It’s not like Beyonce tried to hide it.
