Piggy Chops wrote yesterday – ‘Hello! I’m Priyanka Chopra – I’m an actress and recording artist – ask me anything!’ She continued with “… I’m currently crisscrossing the world shooting for a film in Europe, attending a family wedding in the US, taking care of business in India! But I’m taking time off from all of that to have a conversation with all of you.”
AMA – or Ask Me Anything – is social media platform Reddit’s open internet session where people are allowed to ask any questions and the respondent is expected to answer them all. As soon as Priyanka started her session on Wednesday, she was bombarded with questions ranging from her acting career, singing career, her collaborations, her endorsements, linkup rumors and finally turned nastiest with persons questioning her motives, asking her to come clean on plastic surgery, declare her views on homosexuality, her affairs, and also “Why her father be given the honor of getting a road named after him?”
Priyanka left several questions unanswered, and finally ran off, probably scolding for accepting the session at all!
Here are some of the questions she was asked…
“What contributions has your father made that a road was named after him and not after countless other people who strived and died for India?… the whole deal of renaming a road unnecessarily is shady and reeks of corruption.”
“I will eat my hat if she answers this,” was how one user commented after the question was posted, Evidently, Priyanka left the question unanswered.
Next remark was “This may be the first AMA (Ask Me Anything) where the top comment is not answered.”
Another user asked her: “You endorse a host of cosmetic creams, don’t you think that these companies are preying on the insecurities of people ? How do you justify your endorsements?”
Ms. Chopra, you “dared” to say “AsK Me Anything”. Is this AMA being handled by your PR reps? and not you?
“Is this an AMA or AMAWA? (Ask Me Anything Won’t Answer).”
“Don’t you think that your collaboration with Pitbull (Exotic) is racist (in that exotification is a form of racism)??,” to which Priyanka responded with: “Seriously? Just stop. The world doesn’t need more hate! Stop reading into things. We are just two global artistes collaborating and sharing our cultures. Stop trying to find the bad in good!”
Some other questions were…
Big Fan here, Did you sleep with Pitbull for your song. Or he kept you awake the whole night?
Hi Priyanka – You keep promoting fairness products for people to look like you. Why is it sub human to be dark skinned?
How important is auto-tune in your singing career?
Are you going to contribute anything towards legalizing homosexuality in India? or What are your views?
How much have you spent so far on your plastic surgery?
Priyanka’s final sign off was: ‘This has been interesting. Thank you guys for your time. I’m sorry I could not get to everyone’s questions but I hope you enjoyed this as well.”
