So Macho star Sinitta says X Factor finalist Katie Waissel provokes a reaction

Sinitta has compared X Factor finalist Katie Waissel to Victoria Beckham

The So Macho star thinks the blonde singer has the same love/hate image as the former Spice Girl, 36.

‘I don’t know what Katie needs to do to make people love her,’ says Sinitta, 42.

‘She’s like a lot of big artists. If you look at polls, you’ll have Victoria Beckham leading a best-dressed list and topping a worst-dressed list at the same time. Stars like that have an emotional effect.’

Sinitta reckons Katie, 24, can use her controversial image to her advantage.

‘The fact that Katie provokes a reaction – I think that’s important,’ she tells The Sun.

‘That’s what X Factor‘s about, you’ve got to feel something.’
