Taylor Swift director denies copying Beyonce

The director of Taylor Swift's new music video has denied that he's copied Beyonce's Formation video.

Look at What You Made Me Do is the first single from the singer's sixth studio album, Reputation.

It came after a week-long social media blackout where she removed all her previous posts declaring that the old Taylor is "dead".

But it's a short clip from a preview Taylor tweeted that's caused controversy.

At around 12 seconds in, the artist "formerly known as old Taylor", is seen in military attire standing in formation.

The similarities led music video director Joseph Kahn to tweet...

But some fans didn't take too kindly to those comments.

Kahn went on to say:

Also there's something to that "formation" shot I painted out and you haven't seen yet. Stay tuned Sunday 

It's not the first time the two stars have shared an awkward moment.

Back in 2009, Kanye West interrupted Taylor Swift's acceptance speech at the 2009 MTV VMA's, showering praise on Beyonce in the process.
