Adele accused of imitating Mariam Fares
The administrator of the official page of Lebanese singer Mariam Fares on the internet social network Facebook has posted an accusation against British well-known singer Adele of stealing the idea of Mariam’s clip “Ayam Al Shita” (Winter days) and used it in her own clip for the song “Someone like you”. The admin stated that Adele filmed her clip in the same filming location in France as well as the fact that she used very similar cloths like the ones worn by Mariam.
It was added that Mariam’s song was released two years ago in 2009 and Adele released her song a few months ago in September of 2011. The admin noted that the only true difference between the two clips is that Mariam filmed her clip during the nighttime, while Adele filmed during the day.
The clip by Mariam was recognized around the Arab world, while Adele’s song topped most music charts and won her four Grammy Awards, leading the admin to conclude that Adele was successful in stealing from the Arab world to make the stolen idea reach the world.
