Electric Skychurch

When I posted Marlene Dietrich rip off( photo on the bottom) on fleadip's forum she replied that someone claimed years ago that Madonna copied Electric Skychurch. She had no idea what that person meant. I saw a few of their videos on youtube and also didn't see any resemblance in video for 'frozen'. However I recalled how someone on idiotic forum accused Marta Sanchez of copying Madonna's moves from 'frozen'. It was it! I watched once again ES' video and saw the same hands moves of vocalist. I made the comparison and later defended Marta and others in Secret Project part 19 who were said to copy Madon'nah.
I know it may be difficult to see similarities on photos so watch videos for yourself:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XS088Opj9o0  ( from 4:00)
On first comparisons you see album cover for ES' "Together" on which is song "Deus", sung on this show and beginging of 'frozen' video. Both made on desert.


Sergei Parajanov

from SuperAmanda's lisal: "I lost all respect for Dali when I saw that Madonna and Wallis Simpson favourite, mass murderer Fascist Franco had pinned a medal on him and while he may not be the one(s)plagiarised above he's representing the surrealists who were."
One of them is Sergei Parajanov- the director of biographical movie about Sayat Nova- the color of pomegranates.
Other surrealists ripped of by queen of hommages

Angelyne


Another rip off from an underground, less popular person, this time actress. Didn't she learn over the years that imitating someone's style (Dietrich. Monroe etc.) won't make you any better in acting?


Shirley MacLaine

Might as well rip off your ex-boyfriend's sister too!

Will Smith


A post apocaliptycal story in abandoned city. A guy with a gun and dog meets woman and a kid and togethet try to survive. I have a feeling that I've seen this before.. oh yeah in one of the most known and successfull american movies "I am legend". 
Only the endings of stories are different. The Wills's one is very tragic but considering how ghosttown and rebel heart flopped Madge's story is also very sad.


Patricia Hearst

No. No one will EVER take a Wallis Simpson/materialist proud corporate capitalist apologist with a Made in China clothing and makeup line being peddled by her exploited oldest child seriously posing as a Leftist Radical. Not even her fans.


21.4.17

Green Day

Is there any Mandon'nah's album without any plagiarisms and rip offs? No. Will she ever release a new original album? I don't think so. After watching her 30+ years career build on other people's ideas I'm sure she will reamain the queen of P.O.P.( plagiarising other people).


Brigitte Bardot

Did a muscle man, six pack abs lame version of Bardot and her button up dress in the "Cherish" video which was 100% STOLEN from Vadim and BB's "...And God Created Woman (French: Et Dieu… créa la femme)" Also stole Bardot's makeup and hair styles DOZENS of times. The jewel encrusted body stocking was ripped off pre-internet right down to the upper arm bracelets, when Miesel and Madonna were certain few would notice or have the original pics to disseminate.

Martha Graham

Hailed as one of the most innovative and accomplished dancers and choreographers of the last century, the way in which Martha Graham moved in dance and expressed her creativity through body motion reshaped the dance in a way that has been compared to the way Picasso changed visual art and Frank Lloyd Wright redesigned architecture.
Martha Graham’s influence on the dance and ballet has reached as far as instruction to some of the top names in Hollywood including Bette Davis, Liza Minelli and Madonna.

Martha died in 1991. Few years later queen of hommadges made a tribute for her in Harper Baazar's photoshoot.
PS Raffaella Carra post was updated.
Princess Diana post was removed as her photoshoot was taken in 1997, two years after Madonna's.

Andy Warhol

"Deeper and Deeper" video is a COMPLETE Warhol rip off from start to finish! Even being a "sanctioned rip off" is sneaky because most under 35 are not going to pick up on or know about the original Factory influences.





30.3.17

Pink Floyd

Not only singers (female or male), actors or celebrities are compared with Madonnah. Even the Mundial's opening ceremony in 2014 was compared by professional journalists her fans with this unoriginal, uncreative copycat who didn't push any boundary. Her so called "reinventions" are nothing but rip offs from one person to another. She copies everyone from singers, actresses, poets through painters, movie directors to choreogrphers and composers. 
On the left photos we see a huge, automatically opened disco ball from 2006 "future thiefs" on confessions tour. Pink Floyd copied that idea from Madge and backed into time to 1994.


Whitney Houston

I sincerely believe that if Whitney Huston had hit it big in the late 90s and not the late 80s that she'd be alive today. The racist US media cared only about Madonna and Whitney never ever received the magazine covers (not one mainstream cover), press coverage and critical due that she deserved. Despite achieving the top TWO FILMS in two years (making her the number one female box office star for that period which Madonna will never accomplish) and selling 40+ million albums in a few years she was considered niche because of her race. There were no Beyonces or Black female, wholesome household names until Whitney yet as the first she was treated somewhat like a freak by the Madonnacentric media. Madonna exploited this fact and used it to her advantage with the media's full support and backing. Had Whitney had a powerful platform in the media like Beyonce and Rihanna do today I believe she would not have drifted into deadly excess.

Meaghan Jette Martin


How low did a "queen of pop" had to fall to copy a mediocre musical for teenagers?
Is it a coincidence that Camp Rock has similar chorus to Human nature MDNA Tour?



Björk


If you are going to cover another artist's song in a cack 2 million dollar video then at least don't copy their hairstyle as well.

21.2.17

Charlotte Church

Looks like she loves copying Charlottes. First she copied Rampling, later Gainsbourg and now Charlotte Church.


Rita Hayworth

While the video of "this used to be my video" is a carbon copy of Boy George- to be reborn the scenery  and style were taken from Rita's photoshoot.

Abba

Recycling the song was bad enough but the leotards too?!

Danny Quirk


"December 19, 2015 - As artists, we find the ‘Fair Use’ doctrine to sometimes be beneficial, but sometimes to be extremely disturbing. I guess illustrator Danny Quirk subscribes to the latter according to a post he made concerning Madonna using his work on her shows under that doctrine. Danny has a series of illustrations called Dissections which shows medical sketches (the kind you find in old medical books), combined with living humans. This was his senior project for Pratt institute.
Danny claims that an artist called BessNYC4 [NSFW] pasted a photo of Maddona’s face on his drawing and that they were used in her social media. Any many young artists, Danny was first very happy for the fact that his art was so widely exposed. But then he realized that he was not getting any credit for his illustrations. Danny claims that he tried contacting Maddona’s agent and got no response.
Danny got even angrier when he discovered that those illustrations were also used in Madonna’s shows. Being annoyed he posted about it until his lawyer told him to take the post down as BessNYC4’s work was protected under the Fair Use doctrine for being transformative enough. Danny got annoyed enough that he shared his frustration on his page which got thousands of likes, shares and comments. I am attaching his letter after the jump.
First and foremost … I just want to deliver an open, and honest “F**K YOU” to the “Fair Use Act”, and an ACTUAL “what the F*K!?!?” to those it protects. Almost a year ago to date (Jan 2015) I awoke to a barrage of texts stating my work was popping up on Madonna’s FB, IG, and Twitter, with tens of thousands of likes, shares, comments, etc. ! ! At first, I thought … “WHOAH! / COOL!“ but shortly there after, it sunk in. I contacted her agent, and received absolutely no response. In the meantime, I found out digital collage artist BessNYC4 was the one who ‘made’ the work, sending it to her, merging MY ART with her head, and reaping all the benefits.. Things petered out, and I more or less forgot about it; u n t i l … early Oct 2015. I found out (for all intents and purposes) my art was used in her concerts, despite my attempts at getting proper credit acknowledgment, etc. I made a post to build momentum / got a lawyer, and was hoping for justice. My lawyer said “PULL THE POST!” and it was determined the work was ‘transformative’ under the “Fair Use Act”, which protected them / her and the coinciding articles (which came from momentum of the post covering the ordeal) made ME out to be the bad guy. WHY? Anyone with eyes can see… anyhow, this is a rant how WE ARTISTS are taken advantage of, and how laws protect everyone except for who they should, as you can see in THREE of my pieces … anyhow, I’m not thrilled. Pass along if y’all agree (maybe we can build momentum?)
Thanks,
Danny # "

She not only posted his photos on instagram, which is not a copyright infrigement, but also used them on concerts, from which she earns money and that is a plagiarism INDEED. What happened later? We read on Danny's facebook profile:
"Whelp, just as the last post was garnering momentum, Nipple Police flagged the 5 pixels by 5 pixels of painted nipple, and the post about the uncredited use of imagery containing my artwork in Madonna's social media pages and concerts was taken down due to a ''nudity violation''. Anyhow, thank you to everyone for the support / getting the ball rolling / helping get the word out, and helping to make a stink about us 'unknown' artist's work being misused by household names."

They removed his posts trying to shut him up. Few months ago I remember reporting a page on facebook called "Tits of pornstars"( after translation) with hunderds of photos and they replied to me there is no violation of fb regulamin. Pathetic. Madonna has many friends/ fans/ workers who try to hide the truth about her unoriginality and thievish nature. Many videos showing her plagiarisms and rip offs were removed from youtube or muted due to copyright infrigement of.. Madonna's music, not original. Even my secret project part 16 was deleted for using "her" song 'the beast within' not Fairuz'es voice samples. Video showing Sam Haskins rip off doesn't violate any copyrights but was removed from public view and is shown only for people who have a LINK. Many photos from Super Amanda's listal were removed too. On whosampled they reject my submissions about Mandonna sampling others and even delete old, accepted submissions which were there for years( She's not me sampling Sezen Aksu's yaz or Like a virgin and 4 Tops- I can't help myself).  Keep trying little menopausers but the truth always comes out. Sooner or later.


Jojoes Art

"Hey, we are JojoesArt and PixieCold, freelance artists from Berlin (and siblings.. :)). Yesterday we discovered, that Madonna posted an artwork of Jojoe on her official Instagram, with her own face photoshopped into the image, without mentioning him as the original artist at all.
Jojoes original picture: http://jojoesart.deviantart.com/art/Alice-in-Wonderland-301425862
Madonnas Instagram post: https://instagram.com/p/2lvvutmEUR/?taken-by=madonna
This is not the first time people get recognition for our work without giving us credit. Almost weekly we receive mails by people, who discovered our art being sold on eBay, wallpaper sites and even in shops all around the world. While we appreciate them liking our art, we would love to at least get some of that recognition also for ourselves, as we make a living by selling prints and originals of our work.
We are sure Madonna did not have any bad intentions and probably did not even know where the original picture came from, but still we think it would only be fair, if Jojoe received some kind of credit for that, especially since the post on Instagram received more than 50.000 likes.
Our plan:
So here is our plan: We want to raise attention for the important cause of artist´s rights. Therefore we were thinking, that the easiest way in our age of social media would be, to make this post and somehow get it to reach Madonna.
If Madonna sees this post we want to challenge her: Madonna, if you read this, we would like to tell you, that we appreciate you liking Jojoes piece of art. Therefore we want to create a unique piece of art for you together, a crazy/artistic portrait, and we would love to hand it to you. If you were willing, we could even auction the original picture and donate the money for a good cause. That would be a "compensation" everyone could benefit from. 
How you can support us:
It would mean the world, if you helped us to get this to Madonna by:
- Liking it and sharing it on your wall
- Posting a comment on Madonna´s Instagram/facebook and linking to this post (and PLEASE be nice to her, do not post hate comments, maybe just a nice heart ♥)
We know, it is kind of a crazy attempt, but we hope our message gets across! Artists have rights..."

Madonna did not have any bad intention? Yeah sure, just like with Danny Quirk.

Mary Louise Brooks

No, two imitation pearl drink coasters won't create a "bust line".
PS. Kylie MinogueMarilyn Monroe and Marlene Dietrich posts were refreshed with new photos.


12.8.16

Charlotte Rampling

Why doesn't anyone talk about Charlotte Rampling or Liza Minelli but Madonna when comparing other female singers like Elin Lanto?
I thought it's because her 'tributes, hommages, reinventions, imiatations, recreations, sampling.." etc. are about taking someone's ideas, passing them to mainstream as own without crediting nor mentiong creators.
However when it comes to Marilyn Monroe everyone knows that Madge copied/imitated her. When someone else like Miley Cyrus or Gwen Stefani does it, they are still compared with Mummydonna, not with original. So what is the reason? Why are all female singers and celebrities compared to her? Is this her PR's, pseudojournalists who get paid for it doing?

Pat Benatar

Pat Benatar's voice alone blows Madonna off the stage and even with red sandals she can't pull off the spandex like the Queen of Rock n Roll can.



30.7.16

George Michael

His video inspired many singers such as Gaga, Beyonce and Madonnasaur who wasn't the first one to wear black latex clothes like her trolls try to tell us. Also human nature video wasn't inspiration for Rihanna's S&M video which is a plagiarism of David La Chapelle photos. Madge doesn't send trends, she follows them.


27.7.16

Liza Minelli

100% RIP OFF OF LIZA IN CABARET. Used her imagery often.
Below is a combo rip off of Liza and an obscure semi topless early picture of Marilyn Monroe. Cap, cane and all!

12.7.16

Erwin Blumenfeld

Next photographer that she "paid tribute to" by not mentioning a single word about him after copying his work.
PS. Guy Bourdin post was updated with 1 photo.

4.7.16

Kirsten Dunst

Another costumed film to steal ideas from. Why does Madonna always try to copy film fashions aimed at teenage girls? These were retouched with a sandblaster.

30.6.16

Taylor Swift

New albums equals new era in Madonna's rip offs and plagiarisms. Even before releasing 'Reductive Heart' she had to follow trends made by most popular singers. One of them is Taylor Swift and her single promo picture stylized as a movie poster with photos of starring people, date of world premiere and same black, white and red colors.


29.6.16

Britney Spears

We are back after a long hiatus with a lots of new photos.
Close-up on heels, while leaving the hotel, escaping from paparazzi, dancing in driven car and at the and everything turns out to be a daydreaming. It all was shown in Briteny's "I wanna go" one year before "Turn up the radio" video was released. I know there is also a similar begining in one Gaga's video, but close-up on feet is the only similarity. And no, Mandonna didn't do it before in Drowned world video because there are only paparazzi and she rides IN a car, without dancing. It's not similar to IWG video.
PS. September and Kylie Minogue posts were refreshed.

29.3.15

Siouxsie and the Banshees

"I was shocked when I saw Siouxsie at Screen on The Green. This was still before John and I were close. She was walking around wearing some suspenders and a bra with her whole tits out. I was stunned. How could she have the nerve? I think she contributed a lot to the free woman's movement. Madonna got it all from Siouxsie, who was totally on her own then."
