“Has Anyone Told You That You Look Like Solange?” Celebrities People Always Say You Resemble
As soon as someone says “You know who you remind me of?” you know exactly what they’re going to say. From compliments to somewhat shady suggestions, these are the celebrity comparisons people love to make about everyday people.
When traveling abroad as a black man…
Every slim, brown-skinned black girl in the ’90s heard this one to death.
Had a little attitude and a lot of weave? Add to that chocolate skin and you were somehow “Pam from Martin.“
Or you were “Gina from Martin” if you were light-skinned. So unoriginal.
We’d like to welcome Indian women to the joys and struggles of having only one or two very famous representatives on TV.
Black and just slightly overweight? You’ve probably heard this one more than once.
Apparently people get mistaken for the Oscar winner a lot (side eye at Cosmpolitan).
A.k.a., “that old black guy on TV… you know, the one in that one movie…”
Michonne from The Walking Dead
Every black woman with dreads right now (before that it used to be Whoopi Goldberg).
…or “Pookie” from New Jack City, brought to you by ’90s shade.
Any time you rocked your neo-soul look out of the house.
Number one in the delusional “You know who people always mistake me for?” category. Girl, bye.
