  1. The donut shop should of sued friends for licking donuts and being a complete jerk to the employee's. She nothing but a rude individual. The outfit is not exactly the same. What a waste of space and money. Could be feeding the homeless.

  2. The one on the left looks like a real pop star lol ariana is the one that looks like a child in a Halloween costume to look like the girl on the left

  3. doesn't look anything like her, it's like claiming all black people look the same. And she wonders why her concerts aren't safe to attend, greed is at her core

  4. The real ariane is fatter. I can draw that pink picture. That doesn't mean she owns me. Right. We allowed to spoof.

  5. I've no respect, for this doughnut licking diva b*tch!
    So, nobody, who remotely looks like her, can have a modeling career, lest the company they worked for, gets sued.
    And, the girl cannot sing
    She owes all, to the soundboard operators, Sound mixers and music editors, for making her sound, talented.
    So, she cant act, sing and has no real social graces….. why is she famous, again?

  6. Forever 21 ? Yes, women think they will always be young and beautiful and pursued by men. Then she hits the wall at age 30 and she encounters the real world. Every man go MGTOW and save yourself.

  7. Soooo,… IF someone looks similar to her and they are a model by profession; they aren't allowed to do a photo shoot?? Absurdity,…

  8. She's mad that someone looks like her? Oh the irony coming from someone who wears a weave and tanned her self to look less white and appropriate black culture

  9. I don’t understand these comments. Ariana is suing Forever 21 not the model. And she definitely should as they are illegitimately using her image to sell money without her permission. People are defending the model but she’s not even being attacked by Ariana lmao

  10. 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?

  11. 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

  12. 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.

  13. 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…..

  14. 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.

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

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
