Britneyn koreografi ja ystävä Andre Fuentes on kuollut 40-vuotiaana. Andre oli mukana Britneyn uran alkuaikoina sekä myöhemmin Circus-albumin aikana.
It’s a sad day for the dance world, as well as the Britney Spears Army: beloved dancer and choreographer Andre Fuentes was found dead last night (May 31), his rep confirms to PopCrush.
“He was a dear friend and long time client and will be missed terribly,” says Jim Keith of The Movement Talent Agency.
After dancing back-up for Britney over the years in both live performances and music videos for classics like “I’m a Slave 4 U,” “Sometimes,” “Born to Make You Happy” and “(You Drive Me) Crazy,” Fuentes also choreographed several routines himself for Spears over the years, including the “Womanizer” and “Circus” music videos and the Circus promotional tour. He also acted as the contributing choreographer for the Circus Tour.
In addition to Spears, Fuentes also worked with Beyoncé, No Doubt and Brandy, and even choreographed Prince‘s video for “The Greatest Romance That’s Ever Been Sold.”
“He’s just amazing. He gets it. He gets me. And he knows how to make a woman look good. He gets my body. He knows my body. He knows what makes me look great, and that’s why I like him,” Britney said of Andre in her 2008 documentary, For The Record.
Friends and fans from the dance community have since poured out their condolences and personal messages for Andre via social media.
