      She kind of reminds me of Gaga- Life wise not looks wise. After the split, she’s featuring in mags and doing well for herself. Someone must be biting his index finger somewhere.

    I hate to be pedantic but the editor of the magazine needs to run a spell check! As my ma says, don’t make an ‘ass’ of yourself on an ‘occasion’

    At the risk of sounding controversial I dare say besides the light skin, make-up and photoshop, I dont find this lady attractive at all infact if she was dark..there would be no article on her anywhere coz she would not be in Nollywood. Ok now shoot..I am ready for the cyber bullets

    Who is telling lies here. I went to the sitting pretty website, and I must say, hmmmm…… I doubt the same person did this makeup (Just saying)
