If you’ve been following this story with Azealia Banks and Teyana Taylor then you know Azealia called out Teyana for allegedly stealing choreography from her friend, Matt Pasterisa. I did a video on that earlier today, so click the link in the top right of this video if you need to catch up.

Azealia Banks chose not to respond to Teyana and instead responded to a fan comment about the situation:

10-1-11: I posted this Beyonce “End of Time” Choreography on YouTube. When I used to Teach Dance classes in a Basement. To make things very Clear I am very THANKFUL FOR THE VMA OPPORTUNITY And I Thanked you @teyanataylor Numerous of Times and Showed love. I’m Truly Blessed for it BUT Honestly, I didn’t know any thing about “FADE”, I didn’t Get any calls about it and I didn’t Receive any pay …. (SHE DID GIVE ME SOME CREDIT) I was truly hurt and Felt Stolen from …. I took it with a Grain of Salt and Continued to remain Humble. I’m not here to Drag anyone and this wasn’t intentional but the TRUTH IS THE TRUTH ! (NO WE DIDN’T GO TO Court)
So clearly Matt is saying that he felt “stolen from” because he didn’t get paid for his work. Which I’m sure is a bad feeling. And apparently Teyana knows how that feels as well because she responded to him and said she didn’t get paid for dancing in the Kanye West video either!
Here is her response:
So, it sounds like Kanye West didn’t pay anybody! Not Teyana and certainly not Matt! And, in my opinion, that’s terrible! Personally, I need more than credit or a “look” for my work – I need a check!
People always say stuff is going to pay off in the long run. But I don’t think that should stop someone from getting a check right now!
