Rihanna accused of copying David LaChapelle's work

After the recent controversy that surrounded Rihanna's new video for 'S&M', the almost-settled dust has risen again after comparisons have been noticed between her raunchy visuals and the work of David LaChapelle.

Rihanna's video was directed by Melina Matsoukas but undeniable similarites have now been flagged up. A scene-by-scene comparison has appeared on Perez Hilton's website and there is no denying that there are characteristics associated with LaChapelle's photography that appear in the songstress' video for 'S&M'. 

No official statements on the matter have been released, but you can watch Rihanna's salacious new video here:
