Juliana speaks out on the I'm Still Here video
Star Singer, Juliana Kanyomozi, was yesterday appearing on 88.2 Sanyu FM and top on the agenda was her latest video. The show host, Crystal Newman asked her about the now trending issue, the J-Lo scene in the video.
"I had not even watched J-Lo's video, but during the shooting, I knew I had seen something like that before. We had a similar discussion with my sister who told me that when it comes to art, there's nothing you can do that has never been done before, look at Beyonce!.." Juliana said.
"I don't call this copying or stealing, It's an inspiration...You get inspired by someone else though I was not inspired by J-Lo."
In the song, we were trying to portray different women, there's a beauty queen, one in a gym, a housewife and another who sits on a couch, all these roles appeal to me in different ways. "I cook my food, mop my house and do my laundry and ironing, I do everything.."
Juliana wondered why one could concentrate on a few seconds of the video and leave the entire beautiful video. It's okay people are entitled to their positve criticism provided you don't attack anyone and you're not offensive, she concluded.
What some of the fans are saying:
Ronnie Mulindwa - "Juliana Earned her place in the industry a long time ago and she did it creatively and with a lot of talent. She doesn't need anyone's approval or critic anymore. She is free to do what she wants and how she wants. She earned her pass to do what she wants. She paid her dues long time..."
James Onen - "Lol mbu copy and paste. Leave Juliana alone. The Queen is back in the game."
Did Ginimbi and Mimi Moana know they were about to die?
