No Doubt Accused of Ripping Off Photo Spread in Their ‘Push and Shove’ Video
Is anything really new or original nowadays? No Doubt, who released the video for ‘Push and Shove’ a week ago, are now being accused of ripping off a photo spread (for an online jewelry campaign) in said video.
The video is an old school, black and white clip where Gwen Stefani and her boys take it to the streets. There are lots of shots of Stefani with stacks of black and white, printed bangle bracelets on her arms, while she holds her face and also rubs her hands all over it.
The black and white shoot and the styling, as well as Stefani’s moves, look to be directly copied from a shoot that jewelry designer Eddie Borgo did. He recruited ELLE’s Kate Lanphear to model for the campaign, which was shot by Paul Maffi. You can see the images from that campaign here, and they are eerily similar to what you see in the ‘Push and Shove’ video.
View the photos, then watch the video below and tell us what you think, PopCrushers. Did No Doubt borrow heavily from a pre-existing piece of work or is this merely a coincidence?
