This Beyoncè Look-Alike Is Catching Hell Online For "Stealing" Her Face
They're not happy about it but she's unphased.
We all want to look as flawless as Beyoncé, but no one can. Except this lady, maybe:
BET reports that Brittany Williams is a 20-year-old woman living in Detroit who started to attract attention online because of her resemblance to the queen. She told BET that she gets a lot of haters in the comments who say that she is trying so hard to look like Beyoncé and accuse her of wearing a weave to imitate the pop culture icon.
“Actually, I do not wear a lot of makeup. I hate to look drastically different from my natural self. I keep it simple,” she says. “Some people assume I wear weave to look like her, but most of the pictures that I post online are with no weave. I naturally have long, thick hair. Weave is a choice for me.”
Brittany works at a Fortune 500 company and produces events. She’s apparently been getting the Beyoncé comparisons since she was in junior high school, but claims she was never that into the fascination with their resemblance. She was into Aaliyah.
It’s hard to look at someone who looks so much like a celebrity and not think they’re doing it on purpose, but yeah, it’s just Brittany Allen’s face. But she is a fan.
“If I ever met her, I would tell her that I’m proud of her and everything she is and has achieved,” Brittany told BET. “I would tell her that I appreciate how she uses music to express herself in the way the art was intended — freely with no reservation to our emotions. I would express my liking to the way she moves; with much calculation, a desire for perfection and an unnecessary work ethic that proves time after time her love for what she does. I’m proud of this woman and I’m proud she reflects a different stigma of what it means to have the color of my skin. I would simply tell her, ‘I’m proud.'”
I wonder what Beyoncé would say to that. Maybe she’s been too busy trying to snatch her face back to respond.
