During an interview with Drum magazine, the ladies said they have to cope with it being said they are too ugly for Idols.

Virginia feels that looks have nothing to do with winning the competition, and VIggy agrees.

"I've never seen a talented person not make it to Idols because they were called ugly. Talent counts - beauty can be bought."

The two have been raised with enough love to share with people who are unhappy, Virginia said.

"At home, our parents, family and community give us the love we need and we have enough to share it with people who are unhappy. We were raised to love and respect people."
