Priyanka Chopra Copied Leading Pop Stars
Priyanka Chopra is one of the most beautiful heroines of Bollywood today. She was crowned Miss World in 2000 and after entering the Bollywood film industry, became a hot favorite with fans with her film Aitraaz. Since then, she had played diverse roles ranging from 7 khoon maaf to Barfi. Currently, she has signed on for a biopic of Mary Kom – the Olympic winning Indian boxer.
At the same time, PC has also branched out to the international music industry, as she had been trained as a classical singer from an early age. In 2011, she signed with Interscope/DesiHits! Her track, In my city has become a huge hit. In the upcoming album, yet to be titled, Priyanka will be performing with Pitbull. The album is being produced by RedOne.
However, as her single titled Exotic has hit the stands, Priyanka has come in for criticism for copying the looks of other famous pop stars before her. Her audience loves her singing, but as far as looks go, Priyanka is distinctly aping the styles of Britney Spears, Jennifer Lopez and Katy Perry.
In 2004, Britney Spears shocked and fascinated the world with her rather risqué ensemble in her hit Toxic’s music video. Her nude colored sequined dress became an icon in the world of pop music. The style was later improved and followed by Jennifer Lopez and Katy Perry.In Exotic, Priyanka too appears in a nude colored dress that hugs her fantastic body in all the right places while strategically placed crystals enhanced the appeal of the dress. This is a distinct copy of the dress that was worn by Jennifer Lopez at a music awards show in 2011. We know that Bollywood loves to copy Hollywood, but this is the first time that an acclaimed Bollywood actress has branched out to the international music industry. So, a lot of expectations were riding on the actress turned singer. The fans were not disappointed. The item was launched with much fanfare in a music event in Mumbai hosted by the Universal Music India Asia. Fans loved her and her song and it will probably become one of her successes. But, we expected a bit more originality from the luscious beauty when it came to dressing instead of simply copying the looks of the former pop stars. She has come in for her share of criticism for this ensemble.
