    • Remember when Jaden Smith was seen all over the place dating kylie Jenner? I dont know what happen but then suddenly it was all about Amandla Stenberg. Then Kylie went and got her lips injected to look similar to Amandla Stenberg’s lips. The real story is unfolding now that I’ve seen Amandla Stenberg’s lips.

  1. Is that who everyone has been arguing with? I thought she was a big woman like in her late twenties or thirties. I never knew that she was still a kid.


  2. All those big old greyed back men should feel ashamed of themselves. Wielding power and might dressed in suit and tie while trying to dumb down the voice of a child.


  3. Omygod when I heard the uproar over the internet, I saw the name but havn’t the slightest clue of who she was. I feel weird now because I was siding with kylie as I thought Amandla Stenberg was a big person.
