    Since when is Ariana a person of color? Um.

    • boystan

      isnt she mexican

      • Queen Amanda Bynes

        itlain lol,they know shes hot rn and they want ratings…

      • live.love.learn.

        No, she’s Italian aka White. She just tans a lot. The Image Awards are supposed to celebrate successful people of color, which she is not, so she should not be nominated smh.

        • boystan

          she does sing like a black woman though THEM WHITNEY VOCALS

  • johnny

    Lol at the nom. Something isn’t right.

  • boystan

    idk zendaya

    • Queen Amanda Bynes

      ikr

  • Queen Amanda Bynes

    LOL she is Italian , she just has a black voice like mariah and whitney..

    • Marina And My Diamonds

      She doesn’t have a “black voice”, she has a power-house voice. :)

      • Queen Amanda Bynes

        yeah you are right , I think its strange when that voice comes from a skinny white girl like ariana or xtina ,so its always impressive because its so unexpected.

  • Queen Amanda Bynes

    the flop oscars.

  • Guest

    Looks like a white girl to me .Many say Italians have black in them maybe thats how she got a nomination.

    • Queen Amanda Bynes

      I think she looks ethinc , my mom though she was mexican lol. maybe its because of her thick hair and her tanned skin. i love her natural curly hair.

  • Queen Amanda Bynes

    Ari looks so gorg in that pic!

  • Queen Amanda Bynes

    An award show where everyone is included except whites, explain to me how thats ok?

    • Cici

      I agree, though. It’s the 21st century, this shit needs to end. We complain about equality, freedom, and being blind to color/sexual orientation/gender/etc, but we are the ones still segregating, playing favorites, and singling out skin colors. I just don’t get it.

    • Marina And My Diamonds

      Tbh, it’s not ok but I’m guessing it’s a way for us to feel appreciated. A lot of the times we don’t get the same amount of recognition, we have to still fight for it in a way. Take the Oscars and Grammys for example, there’s only been a hand full of POC that have won. It’s a shame.

      • Queen Amanda Bynes

        i agree about the oscars not that may black people win and they are so talented. but the grammies are pretty even because alot of black/poc win them alot of the time, some times they win more

        • Adrianne

          Eh. I don’t really agree with that. Especially since the Grammys have recently eliminated a lot of their “ethnic” categories.

    • in jesus name i pray amen

      It’s ridiculously stupid how people of varying ethnicities segregate themselves lol… A lot of ethnicities ostracize themselves for no reason. I said this in other comments, people of all colors (white/black/asian/latin/etc) love to victimize themselves.

      • BangBang

        But I don’t get why you had to generalise it by saying that people of all colour love to victimize themselves?

  • Guest

    Is Ariana Sicilian Italian ? Does anyone know if this is true ?

  • in jesus name i pray amen

    National Association for the Advancement of Colored People… white is a color is it not? or is it a shade? but so is black? so wtf is this even.

    • Adrianne

      You’re joking right? African Americans used to be referred to as “colored” along with many other derogatory terms. Does segregation ring a bell to you? Of course it doesn’t. And the NAACP is a civil rights group, so don’t even start that mess. But something tells me you don’t even know what civil rights are.

  • Queen Amanda Bynes

    omg Ari instagramed she got a new weave ‘ciao pony tail, it’s been real.. new year new music new projects new chapter new weave ‘ lol i love her

  • boystan

    why are they still trying to make zendaya happen
