Ariana Grande is so full of shit, she could fertilize a ten acre farm. Anyone who interviews her not only can’t photograph her from anything but her left side, but there’s also a list of topics she won’t talk about, like her grandfather’s recent death and all those Mariah Carey comparisons. But hey, just because she throws diva tantrums and won’t let you talk about how she’s compared to Mariah doesn’t mean she doesn’t just totally love those comparisons!!!!
From US Weekly:
“Mariah has been a huge influence on me since I was a little girl,” the new Wat-Aah! water bottle spokeswoman exclusively tells Us Weekly. “I’ve even done a cover of one of her songs. I don’t think there are any negatives to being compared to one of the greatest vocalists of all time. It’s honestly a great honor.”
Nope, sorry, not buying it. Obviously you wouldn’t want the comparison to take over your career or what you’re trying to do now, but you wouldn’t outlaw it as an interview question if you were so down-to-earth and loving it. You would confront the question and say that you’re honoured, but you also want to follow your own artistic path and hope that you can grow beyond that.
Let’s all just be real with each other for five seconds – Ariana Grande is no Mariah Carey and never will be. Yeah, she can sing, but she wastes it on shitty collaborations and can’t stand on her own. Seriously, the solo songs on her album are a total disaster. Mariah was solo 100% and killed it every single time. In fact, her rare duets were some of the worst songs she did (not you, ‘One Sweet Day’ – never you), so she can just sit down now.
