  1. Almost any thin, young hispanic gal can look like Grande. Long smooth hair, make up application, posture can be esily mimicked. Innt imitation considered the best form of flattery?

  2. Ariana ruined mac millers life. She cheated on him and put him down on social media which made him abuse drugs more. Ariana is scum

  3. If you enjoy lying and deceiving people, get a job in marketing.  Proves how companies just use people to buy their products and to sell them, as well.

  4. Forever 21 girl looks better…….has a much longer neck……in other words if anyone looks similar to someone famous needs permission to do anything……. what rubbish Nappy man…….. Forever21 girl do you have a voice and can you sing, everyone is sick of the elitist's…..

  5. So now you can be sued if you happen to look too much like a rich celebrity? Better lock up the lookalike. Throw her in a deep, dark dungeon, and put her in an iron mask, so that no one will ever see that poor girl again. We wouldn't want anyone to mistake her for Ariana Grande, who happens to have a trademark on the other girl's face. This is insane. It would be one thing if they tried to falsely advertise it was Ariana Grande, but they didn't.

  6. Ariana needs a good sodomizing,,,,, meh,, I'd do it – then clean my shlong off on her curtain just to hear her scream again

  7. Dumb girl. She is going to spend legal fees and file against a company filing for chapter 11. Only one happy will be her lawyers.

  8. The real 'flaw' here, is that Forever 21 stupidly took and used similar lyrics from one of Grande's songs (this blatantly making it obvious what they were trying to achieve). My personal belief here is that one can't copyright a hairstyle, nor that a person may have a hispanic bloodline, nor how someone may use hair props, nor that the scene is lit with a predominantly magenta color. It's not in my mind even important for how 'similar or close' the two people may look. In fact, I think the Forever 21 model is more representative of a 'clothing model' than Grande would ever be, due to their major weight and physique differences. For me, the two do not look alike, if you were to ask me which I would prefer to go on a date with, it would be the Forever 21 model. I think what more is going to matter in this case is the use of Grande's lyrics. It's unbelievable to me that upper management at Forever 21 would think using lyrics out of her song would be 'ok'. I feel, this mistake will be the smoking gun in this case. Maybe they will settle out of court.

  9. What happened to all the fans THEY ARE ALL BACKSTABBERS im the only one thats a true fan what happens if someone killed ariana what ya gonna do

  10. They don’t even look that much similar! It’s just the head piece that looks the same! Dress is different and no neckwear! Wtf?!!! She must be broke.

  11. She only has a case if model is wearing 40lb's of bronzer trying to pretend to not be white… while selling young teen girl image to creepy men. It's almost like her entire appeal was designed as a Jeff Epstein PR ad.
