You can put a ring on that- a championship ring that is. According to the RIAA, who earlier today released a tally of the decade’s highest Gold and Platinum certifications, Beyonce has scored the most certifications of any other artist- racking up a total of 64. The singer also led the league in ringtone certifications- garnering 19.
And while this is great news for the singer- there is a bit of bad as well. In a rare occurrence, a German court has actually sided against the singer and her label in a lawsuit in which a manufacturer claims Beyonce wore an unauthorized reproduction of a copyrighted design by Iskren Lozanov in her “Video Phone” video. While the United States does not allow clothing designs to be copyrighted, Germany does and in this case it is keeping the video from being aired in that country. Sony, Beyoce’s label, said they planned to consult the singer and were most likely going to appeal the decision.
