Ariana Grande is suing Forever 21 for $10 million - accusing the retailer of stealing her name and likeness to promote its products.

In the complaint filed in federal court this week, Grande said Forever 21 published unauthorized images and videos to create the false perception that the pop star was endorsing the fast fashion brand.

Among the accusations: hiring a Grande look-alike - who - according to the lawsuit - wears a similar outfit to one worn by the singer and sports a hair style all-too-similar to the one she wore in her 7 Rings music video.

The lawsuit also alleges music and captions with lyrics from that number 1 single were used in the marketing campaign, which the complaint says 'capitalized' on the success of Grande's album Thank U, Next.

Grande's complaint makes it clear she has no deal with Forever 21.

The singer claims the two sides were in talks about a joint marketing campaign, but that deal broke down when Forever 21 wasn't willing to pay up.

The lawsuit claims that the value of a single social media post from Grande, who boasts 163 million followers on Instagram alone, is worth 'well into the six figures.'

Forever 21 did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

OnePlus confirms Nord to have ultra-wide selfie camera [Video]

OnePlus confirms Nord to have ultra-wide selfie camera

OnePlus has confirmed that the new smartphone OnePlus Nord will have a selfie camera with an ultra-wide 105-degree field of view. According to The Verge, the smartphone manufacturer confirmed the news in a video posted to the Nord's Instagram page. However, it didn't confirm the resolution of the camera. A previous report from Android Central said that the phone will have two selfie cameras: one 8-megapixel wide-angle camera and a main 32-megapixel selfie camera. OnePlus has previously shown a prototype device with dual selfie cameras during a documentary about the Nord. In the feature's announcement video, the mobile company positioned the ultra-wide selfie camera as an alternative to using a selfie stick. It means that the feature should be helpful for taking selfies of groups, or just of yourself alongside more of your environment. Although, ultra-wide selfie cameras aren't an entirely new feature on phones. For example, 2018's Pixel 3, included a second 8-megapixel camera with a 97-degree field of view. Today's feature joins an increasingly exhaustive list of announcements OnePlus has made about its upcoming smartphone. The phone is due to release first in India and Europe is set to be powered by a Snapdragon 765G processor. It will cost less than the equivalent of 500 USD.
