Quiz of the Day - 25 May 2012

Click to Enlarge.
Continuing with our thread of controversial advertisements, we pick an international ad for today's daily quiz.
This Cadbury Dairy Milk Bliss ad created a lot of controversy for its content, with many considering the ad to be in bad taste. Even the celebrity, whose name had been used in the ad, did not take too kindly to the concept and wrote a letter against the purported comparison being made through the ad. The company, however, persisted with the ad.
The whole ad-line was, 
"Move over ____
there's a new diva
in town"
All you have to do is fill the blanks.
Please mail your answer to shovon76[at]gmail[dot]com.
The answer, along with the name of the person with the correct answer, will be published tomorrow.
Answer: The answer is "Naomi".
Congratulations to Biswajyoti Borah, Subodh Kumar and Mitali, who have got the answer right.
As an aside, this ad generated a lot of controversy because of its comparison between Naomi Campbell and Dairy Milk Bliss. Naomi herself wrote a letter expressing her disbelief and saying that she was deeply hurt by the way the ad tried to portray her as equivalent to a chocolate.
