While some criticized her poor accents, some even condemned her grammar mistakes. Johnny Degliuomini, gives an insight to her Italian version. He said, "…And then she says, "I will be your girlfriend." "Saṛ tua" means "I will be" instead of "I could be." She couldn't directly translate it because of the tense of the verb. It takes way too long and doesn't fall right."
