GD really is the “Gossip Man”


This time G-Dragon is accused of copying other artists’ concepts.

The album cover is said be similar to Spiritulized‘s album, “Let it come down“, and the photoshoot concept to Lee JunKi‘s “JStyle” photoshoot.

Let the guy release an album in peace, please.

While I’m well aware that songs are copyrighted, but concepts are not. Well, not all anyways. Everyone gets inspiration from some where. It’s where creativity comes from, artists draw inspiration from every where. While the photo’s are very similar, the idea behind the photo’s may be different.

I kind of feel sorry for him, but I can’t help but think part of it is just a publicity stunt. I put nothing past management and their ability for marketing. No really, I don’t. Everything that’s happening around the release of his album is all well, planned, so it seems. Think what you want, that’s what the marketing team is for. G-Dragon is getting great publicity for an album that isn’t even released and for free. It makes the marketing department’s job a lot easier. Remember, bad publicity is still free publicity and is better than no publicity at all.
