One of the most annoying things in the world, is when folks start off a conversation with “you know who you look like?!” Errrr!! MYSELF!! THAT’S WHO I LOOK LIKE! I’m not sure if I have one of those familiar faces, but it seems someone always has a cousin that looks just like me…or a friend’s girlfriend, or a former classmate, or a [insert random person]. At one point, I was getting stopped frequently in the DMV (DC/Maryland/Virginia Area) because I had a “twin” on the loose. I think I finally met her when I was waitressing. This girl did look like a bigger version of me, however, she was Sri Lankan. I guess M.I.A. and I could be sisters??
Well, my most recent “look-alike” is Nikki Minaj. Granted, Nikki and I are from the same place (Trinidad & Tobago – Trini gyal right here!!) and we have the same mixture (Black and Indian – very common in the islands), I don’t really see the resemblance.
It’s cool being compared to a celebrity…provided they’re:
2. the same sex as you (as lipstick lesbian-esque as Justin Bieber is, I would never want someone saying I look like “The Bieb” – Note: I am not a lesbian…I realize how that could read differently.)
3. a real person
I’m flattered by both comparisons, cause they both are beautiful women. However, I can’t wait for the day, when folks go up to Nikki and say, “you know who you look like? Ayanna Dookie!”
Who do folks say is your celebrity look-alike? Do you agree?
