Do I honestly look like Brandy Norwood?

Asked by cutiepi92 (2119 points ) December 30th, 2012

People say I look like Brandy Norwood….....personally, I don’t find her attractive at all. AT ALL. WHATSOEVER. So please be honest, do I look a lot like her? The only thing I would see maybe is the fact that we both have “big” smiles (I hate my smile…..ugh….) and high eyebrows. Her eyes are much further apart, she has a different nose and bigger teeth…different sized forehead etc. I know people don’t mean it in a bad way, but I can’t help but take it that way since I feel like she isn’t that pretty.

I don’t know who Brandy Norwood is so I can’t answer, but you are very pretty and I am sure you know it. Are you fishing for compliments? If so, I just gave you one!!!

Just look like you, I don’t know who Brandy Norwood is either. There is only one you. Be that you to your fullest capacity.

Sorry to sound like a stuck record, but Brandy Norwood?
I think you look like one of Obama’s kids, I forget which one.

I think you look like her a little bit. You are both pretty. I’d take it as a compliment.

Maybe SHE looks like YOU! Send her your picture and ask her to critique your looks compared to hers.
Brandy Norwood: ” Well…cutiepie has small teeth, a small forehead and her eyes are set too close together, I don’t think she is all that attractive.”
Really….all I can say is NEVER compare yourself to anyone else and vice versa, it’s a waste of time.

There will always be someone smarter, prettier, richer, more talented.
If you want to lead a miserable life comparing yourself to others is the first step.

@Coloma lol I guess I only ask because this is what others have told me and compared me to. But I suppose you’re right, it’s not even worth it I guess. Just curious as to what others think

Coloma's avatar

@cutiepi92 Yeah, don’t waster your energy, take it as a compliment.
Welcome to fluther, and bonus points for your good sense of humor.:-)

None of the pics you’ve posted bear a strong resemblance to Brandy that I see, but you are very pretty. Brandy does have a unique look – I think it’s her wide-set eyes that make her stand out, but I don’t get the impression that yours are like that. Sometimes there are mannerisms and facial expressions we make that remind others of someone else.

We can’t make major changes in our appearance without spending major amounts of money, and I can’t imagine that you’d want to change anything about how you look. I haven’t followed celebrity activity in a number of years, but as I recall, Brandy has always had poise and class – those are admirable qualities. I recommend that you focus your energy on your inner beauty, since that is what you’ll carry with you through the years to come, as aging (and perhaps illness or injury) take your youthful beauty from you.

@hearkat That actually makes a lot of sense. I think people mainly say it when I smile so that’s probably it. I appreciate your words of wisdom as well.

I was at an event a year ago and some young guy told me I looked like Janis Joplin. haha
I was dressed in what I call “bohemian classy ” attire.
Long skirt, lacey tank, velvet jacket, boots and had my hair done in loose pigtails with pearl ties, but Janis Joplin?
Cracked me up!

I have been told I look like Gwyneth Paltrow, Juice Newton, Joni Mitchell, but never Janis Joplin.
Perception is a funny thing. lol

I’d never heard of her either. I think you are prettier than she is. And you’re right, this place is much better than Yahoo Answers. Welcome :)

hearkat's avatar

@cutiepi92 – The closest resemblance I see is in the photo where you’re smiling, and you have a great smile.

I haven’t been to Yahoo answers in many years… Fluther is much better! Welcome!

Coloma's avatar

Yes, great smile!

I don’t think you resemble Brandy “Vehicular Homicide” Norwood.

In your second photo, I think you look more like Holly Robinson Peete.

“I don’t think she’s attractive at all. AT ALL. WHATSOEVER.”

If you don’t think this woman is attractive at all, whatsoever, then I wouldn’t want to know how attractive you’d think I look.

cutiepi92's avatar

Ok so I did exaggerate lol, she’s not ugly, let’s just say she isn’t in my top 20 hottest females…..Just, plain I guess??

Pingu's avatar

You’re wrong. She’s beautiful. And I bet you can’t even go buy toilet paper without guys hitting on you. Now, go nurture your self esteem by doing something that you find fun and fulfilling!
if it helps, do it in a public place, wearing your sexy clothes.

rooeytoo's avatar

This is getting more interesting, you don’t want people to think you look like her because she is not one of the top 20 hottest females??? Do you think you are one of the top 20 hottest???

Brian1946's avatar

It’s like she’s the reincarnation of Eleanor Roosevelt! ;-o

wundayatta's avatar

Didn’t know her, so I looked her up. I’d say I can see why people might compare you to her, although there are plenty of differences.

I think that the thing to understand is that when people compare you to someone beautiful, it is a way of saying you are beautiful without quite saying it. When they say you look like Norwood, they are telling you that you are beautiful.

Now I don’t know if you are like many beautiful girls who have been told all their lives that they are beautiful, but are never really sure. Often times, you get complimented on your looks so much, that you feel very insecure about your other capabilities, and you feel a need to be complimented almost all the time, even though it really doesn’t make you feel secure.

The only thing that will make you secure is feeling confident about some skill you have. To some extent, beauty is a skill, but it is one with a do not sell after date. Once you turn forty, you’re a hasbeen. And you probably shouldn’t want to be in that position.

You are beautiful and hot, but so what? What else can you do? Beauty is a dangerous thing to hang your hat on, because it is so subject to the influence of popular taste. Today, people might think you’re beautiful, and tomorrow, it could be gone. Someone else will be the beauty of the day.

Then the men with money who want eye candy will descend and you essentially trade your beauty for money. Not a comfortable place to be.

So the real question is who are you? What makes you cutiepi92? Clearly you identify with your beauty. What kind of work do you do? What do you know a lot about? What kind of social capital do you have? Who are your friends? What do they do? What does your family do? Where do you live? And on and on. These are the things that are much more important in the long run. Beauty helps, and you can always get a dinner and some drinks on your beauty. But happiness is going to take some doing, especially if you are at all insecure about your looks or yourself.
