In general, when something becomes popular, record labels & Hollywood put out a bunch of of the same thing. There's not really all that much that can be done with movies & TV shows. Sitcoms, dramas, soap operas, cop shows, etc. have been around since TV began and before that with radio shows. They're just updated to the years they appear in, like with fashion & slang words. Look at Tarantino, pretty much his entire career is based on copying old, sometimes obscure cult movies. Since the sources are not that well known by the mainstream, it seems original.mj_frenzy;4188455 said:Chanté Moore’s slight bitterness (towards Rodney Jerkins) makes sense. I can completely understand how she feels about that.
But, if you ask me, Puff Daddy is to blame for that mess-up. He should not have intervened in the first place. Yet, Daddy’s avariciousness does not surprise me at all!
I also gather that Chanté Moore implies pressures from Jennifer Lopez’s camp (by mentioning that Lopez “had such a machine at the time” for not releasing the song ‘If I Gave Love’ as her next single.
When it comes to movies, I am firmly convinced that many filmmakers copy shamelessly other movies, & ‘pay homage to’ is merely a euphemism for ‘copy blatantly from’.
Take the horror movie genre for instance (which, by the way, is the only genre that appeals to me). I never understood what was so special about ‘The Texas Chainsaw Massacre’ to the point where so many subsequent horror movies keep taking elements from that one. I want original horror ideas.
