Although Beyoncé is famous and admired by many, I think she often comes across in a negative way, so I would not think it to be a compliment to be compared to her.  Brenda is Brenda.  Surely, Susan can come up with ways to compliment her in a more unique or personalized way than this same old same old overdone analogy.


None of my comparison was to Beyonce's behavior; only her physical appearance which, as I say, I think Brenda resembles.

I don't see much of a resemblance. Brenda is very pretty. Beyoncé not so much honestly speaking

Re: Susan stop calling Brenda

Brenda is beautiful. Brenda's beauty is her own brand. Equally beautiful to Beyonce. Beyonce's beauty is her own brand. I can see coloring similarities but that's it for me. I feel a little uncomfortable with Susan's comparison tonight, but it seemed to be done in what she feels is complimentary way . I personally don't think its the most sensitive thing to say, because I think Brenda is stunning in her own right.

As long as Susan sells, she will be allowed to do whatever she wants.

 

She has become unwatchable for me.

I have stopped watching her shows and buying her clothing.  Just too irritating for me.

I speculate there's not really much back story regarding how it started.  What now seems like many years ago when Beyonce separated from being a part of Destiny's Child and became a hot name and face, Susan in her endless chatter would comment that she had Beyonce modeling for her.  It was meant as a compliment and not as some standard of beauty for the black models. There is a definite physical resemblance between the two women, and I would dare to say that if Brenda were in any way uncomfortable with looking like this celebrity she would probably opt for look which would eliminate some of the in your face similarities (hairstyle and color).  At a former workplace of mine there was an executive whom I reported to who constantly referred to me as Miss Ross, as in Diana.  It was a no harm no foul matter to me.
