A New York federal judge found the themes in her video non-copyright material while the "angles, poses, and lighting" in David's photos are completely protected.
The judge also heard evidence that the storyboards used for her video actually contained his photographs.
Holy shiz! Well, wow!
"I live feeling like I'm somebody's girl. I love to be tied up and spanked. Using whips and chains is too planned…you have to stop and look for the whip. I prefer them to use their hands."
Unfortunately, she also goes on to explain that she thinks some of her more masochistic tendencies in the bedroom stem from the abuse she suffered as a child, at the hands of her father, which seriously bums us out!

our her S&M video - and he's suing her over it!
In a lawsuit made public on Monday, the fashion photographer claims "the music video is directly derived from and substantially similar to the LaChapelle [his] works."
