Singer Manuela Accuses Taylor Swift Of Stealing Footage From Her Visual EP For Anti-Hero Music Video

Singer Manuela has taken to social media to accuse Taylor Swift of copying ideas from her visual EP for the Anti-Hero music video, which was released Friday.

After watching the video of the 32-year-old pop star, inspired by her “nightmare scenarios and intrusive thoughts,” Manuela shared footage from both videos to demonstrate some striking similarities.

“I’m literally a #swiftie, so it’s both painful and such an honor to ask this question – am I on a mood board?” she captioned the recording, which featured Swift’s video at the top and Manuela’s at the bottom.

See double? Singer Manuela has taken to social media to accuse Taylor Swift of stealing footage from her visual EP for the Anti-Hero music video, which was released Friday

In the first few seconds, both women can be seen in the mirror as clones of themselves stare in the background.

Then Manuela and her clone and Swift and hers exchange high fives. Another example was that they climbed the roofs of their respective houses.

Perhaps one of the most striking similarities is the clones pushing each other; Manuela’s is thrown off a roof, while Swift pushes her other self off a roof.

A coincidence? Manuela’s video was released earlier this year, in April 2022, while Swift’s debut was made on Friday

Disturbing: After watching the video of the 32-year-old pop star, inspired by her “nightmare scenarios and intrusive thoughts,” Manuela shared an image of both videos to point out some striking similarities

On Sunday night, Manuela clarified to her 6,816 Instagram followers that her song, Glimmer, was recorded in October 2020, ahead of its April 2022 release.

While referring to producer Sara D’Alessio’s post about working with Swift on the Anti-Hero video over “many months” over the summer, Manuela claims her post was “created first.”

She also posted someone else’s theory that it’s “very possible that an art director referenced this video directly at some point during the production process.”

“As a gambling man, it’s extremely unlikely that all these shots would be interpolated into the same video,” the man insisted.

She also shared a video of Isaac Sagastume, who said it hurt him “to see someone’s work almost taken shot by shot.”

Photographer Naomi Ramirez called on Swift to “please give credit where it is due,” as “there are too many identical shots to be mere coincidence.”

Timeline: On Sunday night, Manuela clarified to her 6,816 Instagram followers that her song was recorded in October 2020, before its April release earlier this year.

Painful: : In addition to posting on her Instagram story, she went on to say that she knows “so many people who follow her” who are “terrified of choosing her because it’s “implying they’re against Taylor”

On Monday, Manuela went on to say that she felt “at the highest level.”

In additional posts to her Instagram story, she went on to say she knows “so many people who follow her” who are “terrified of choosing her because it “implies being against Taylor.”

“She’s POWERFUL. Who wouldn’t be afraid? But please, how do you think this whole thing makes me, a Swiftie, feel?’ Manuela asked her fans.

“Can you imagine staying up until midnight listening to the Anti-Hero music video premiere, just to see how my work plays out?” she wrote.

Two-time Grammy nominee Kehlani, who has 14.3 followers, shared the images of Manuela and Swift’s videos on her Instagram.

Manuela later replied to a comment that Anti-Hero and Glimmer are “opposites.”

“Can you imagine staying up until midnight listening to the Anti-Hero music video premiere, just to see how my work plays out?” she wrote

Responding to the critic saying that Anti-Hero is “all about self-loathing and Glimmer about how wonderful” she thinks she is, the singer explained that Glimmer is actually about her autism, being neurodivergent, fears and “misinformed nostalgia.” .

The controversy comes just days after Swift’s highly anticipated new album Midnights broke the Spotify single-day album stream record.

Anti-Hero is the 11-time Grammy winner’s lead single from the Cardigan hitmaker’s 10th studio album.

A nightmare: On Monday, Manuela went on to say that she felt ‘gassed at the highest level’

A number of Swift’s fans jumped to her defense to remind the world that she “cloned herself in MULTIPLE previous videos” (including You Belong With Me, …Ready For It? and Look What You Made Me Do.)

Taylor has made the evil twin/duplicate motif a million times and it has been done by countless artists. Manuela [whoever the hell that is] can sit down,” one tweeted.

“Anti-Hero’s LYRICS literally MATCH the music video, so the MV is definitely based on the song itself,” insisted another on Twitter.

A fourth tweeted: “I’m not trying to be rude, but honestly, the thought of Taylor or anyone on her team coming across a video with barely 1000 views is almost impossible.”
