Ariana Grande Accused Of Copying Jean Paul Gaultier
Thievery or homage? You make the call!
On Saturday, Ariana Grande released the music video for "God Is A Woman", her second single from upcoming album Sweetener.
To sum it up, with one tweet, fans were shook.
Anyway, that was then, and this is now.
This morning, fashion Instagram Diet Prada -- which is all about #exposing designers, celebs and brands copying one another -- posted the following pic, noting the, uh... extreme similarities between a scene from Ari's vid and a Jean Paul Gaultier fashion campaign.
The page, which has amassed a whopping 612k followers, was quick to spot the resemblance to Jean Paul Gaultier's 1993 Spring/Summer ad campaign.
Calling out Ari and "God Is A Woman" director Dave Meyers, they captioned the pic: "Is God a woman? More importantly, could she be a Jean Paul Gaultier woman? @arianagrande is definitely making a strong case for it...or at least @dave_meyers is a fan of this SS 1993 ad campaign lol."
Fashion fans have been duking it out with the Ari stans to decide whether this is thievery or an intentional homage.
However, Paige seemed to shut it all down with this:
More on that here, if you're feeling artsy.
Anyway, will this result in a lawsuit? Will Ari tell us whether this was intended as a homage? Will she get a seventh tattoo with with her boo Pete Davidson? Unfortunately, we're not psychics, so only time will tell.
Until then, though?
