Best Music Videos That Steal From Artists

Good artists copy. Great artists steal.
  1. Miley Cyrus "Dooo it"
    The video that inspired this list. Let's hope Marilyn Minter is flattered.
  2. Beyoncé "Countdown"
    Beyonce admitted she was inspired by Anne Teresa de Keersmaeker for this one. (And there's lots of bob fosse in there too).
  3. Nicki Minaj "The Boys"
    Kind of a brilliant meeting of the minds. Is there anyone better suited to borrowing from Yayoi Kusama's cartoonish polka dots than Minaj these days?
  4. Madonna "Hollywood"
    Guy Bourdin sued. Madonna settled. Everyone's happy?
  5. Rihanna "S&M"
    Another one that got settled out of court. Congrats David LaChapelle.
  6. Drake "Hotline Bling"
    James Turrell-approved even though he denies any involvement in this video.
  7. Lady Gaga
    Hard to choose one. She is a prolific and varied thief - everyone from Damien Hirst to Marina Abramovic to Kenneth Anger to French performance artist Orlan (who also sued).
