Ariana Grande sued Forever 21 and Riley Rose last week. The singer claimed that the American fashion brand and beauty product company used her image without her permission. 

According to CNN, in her lawsuit, Grande accused the said companies of stealing her name, likeness and other intellectual property to promote their brands without charge. Her legal team also mentioned in the suit that Forever 21 approached the “Thank U, Next” singer in late 2018 for a proposed endorsement deal, but she didn’t accept the offer as the company can’t pay her fees. 

Grande’s camp accused Forever 21 of posting images and videos featuring the singer’s look-a-like models to make people think that she’s endorsing the clothing company. She is asking $10 million as compensation for the lawsuit. Now this case prompted Drag Queen Farrah Moan to accuse the petite singer of copying one of her outfit from Season 4 of “RuPaul’s Drag Race.” 

Via social media, Moan said that Grande used her look for inspiration when she was making her “7 Rings” music video. This means to say that Moan thinks that Grande stole her looks before Forever 21 supposedly ripped off the singer’s looks.

“Ariana should give me a cut of that 10M since her team literally sent a pic of me to the designer and paid them to copy my look from as4,” she tweeted. “(Finally met the designer and got told the Tea) I guess stealing from queer artists for profit is fine tho.”

Moan also uploaded a side-by-side photo of herself and Grande to let people see how their outfits looked alike. When one commenter stated that it should be the designer’s fault since she accepted the work and got paid for it, the drag queen replied that she doesn’t blame the designer at all. 

“I don’t fault the designer because the designer she hired was a local queen and paid them A LOT of money to do it, money they couldn’t turn down,” Moan wrote. “And then was honest with me about it so no, I don’t fault the drag queen that made it at all. Ariana has COIN.”

The outfit-copying issue heats up when Diet Prada, a known fashion watchdog that spots brands, artists, designers and others for copying fashion styles and designs, joins in. This group highlights the similarities between the original and copied styles and usually drops names of the copycats. On Saturday, it called out Grande for stealing the looks of other artists like Rihanna and Ciara.

“If you’ve ever needed proof of Ariana Grande’s appropriation of black aesthetics (beyond the obvious), it’s all here,” Diet Prada wrote on Instagram. “Multiple designers approached by her team to create costumes for the 2019 Sweetener tour have shared with us a PDF mood board sent to them by her team.”

The post included a series of photos featuring various outfit designs for Ariana Grande’s concert tour. Most of the snaps show black women as a reference.
