After being called the mini-Mariah Carey by the music industry Ariana Grande has decided to finally talk about the comparison.
In a new interview with Rolling Stone where she talked about Miley Cyrus’ twerking performance at the VMAs, her upcoming album that will arrive in stores in February of 2014 and of course Mariah Carey.
So is Ariana tired of being linked to Carey?
“It’s a blessing to get the comparison. When you look at “The Way” it’s obvious, but I’m not worried about it. It’s a massive compliment; she’s the greatest singer in the world, like literally, the Guinness Book of World Records. It’s an incredible compliment but it doesn’t worry me, because when you listen to my album as a whole, you get to know me.”
Did you know that she was planning to drop her sophomore album in February?
“I’ve started working on it. I’ve come up with a few, two songs already that I want on it. It’s an album that I want to do a little bit different. I don’t want it to sound like an extension of Yours Truly. I want it to sound like an evolution. I want to explore more sounds and experiment a little bit. I have a bunch of ideas I’m very excited about and a lot of stuff cooking.”
So what did she think about Miley Cyrus’ controversial performance?
“She looked like she was having the time of her life. She’s happy. I’m happy. We’re both doing our different things. There’s nothing wrong with having fun. Nothing wrong. I think all the people who are saying mean things about it and who are judging, need to spend less time judging other people and more time worrying about how to have as much fun as she’s having in life right now.”
The petite singer also confessed that “Honeymoon Avenue” is her favorite song on her debut chart topping album Yours Truly, she really liked Big Pun and has not intention of becoming sexier in order to sell records.
