Teyana Taylor got time!
A recent behind-the-scenes video for Azealia Banks new video "Anna Wintour" has made the rounds, with even more controversy. Banks is dancing in the video, when an Instagram user claimed that the choreography reminded them of Taylor's iconic performance in Kanye West's "Fade" video.
Banks responded by claiming Taylor stole her moves from choreographer Matthew Pasterisa.
“lol you mean the choreography she stole from @bornready_matt and tried not to give him credit for until a lawyer got involved…,” she said.
After the accusations, Taylor didn't waste no time to defend her case.
Pasterisa gave his two cents on his own Instagram page.
“Honestly, I didn’t know any thing about “FADE”, I didn’t Get any calls about it and I didn’t Receive any pay …. (SHE DID GIVE ME SOME CREDIT),” he wrote. “I was truly hurt and Felt Stolen from …. I took it with a Grain of Salt and Continued to remain Humble.”
