  1. The depth. I didn't appreciate it when I first saw this year's ago. Much appreciated now. Thank you queen.

  2. So funny how most comments are exactly the ones that irritate her. All those epitaphs about her etched lips her curls her exotic looks. Things she heard about herself as a model. She is from Philadelpia. Where she originates from? According to her beliefs; same place where you come from. But even I am not privy to those divine truths. She is. But she doesn't want to spoil your dinner.

  3. Too dope!!!!
    I had this ladies
    one time tell me excuse me sir.
    Where are you from
    I said I was born in America
    they said where are parents from I said El Salvador…..
    This bitches said wow the way you carry your self is regal.
    SMH
    ITS LIKE THEY CANT SEE
    OTHER ETHNICITY CARRY THEM SELF WITH
    SUCH GRACE AND KINDNESS……
    MAYBE I WAS TRIPPING
    BUT IF FELT AWKWARD.

  4. She don't sound or look like she is from the USA so I don't understand wtf she mad about. She just comes off as whiny and annoying.

  5. I could see why people would ask her that question…she has kind of a little oriental / native american hint to her features.

    I could also see how that would become annoying to have to answer that question over and over, but if I were her I'd learn to take it as a compliment because the only reason they're asking is because she is so pretty.
