Ariana Grande Doesn’t Understand the Selena Gomez Comparisons

Ariana Grande and Selena Gomez are both gorgeous brunettes with hit singles who got their starts in TV. But if you ask Grande, the similarities pretty much end there.

“I don’t really see [the comparison],” Grande told Yahoo. “We both started out in children’s television, I think we share that in common and we are both doing music. But we are really nothing alike! If you look at us and compare our sounds we aren’t that much alike. She has been incredibly successful thus far in her career and I will feel lucky if I am just as successful.”

Do we sense some shade? “We aren’t that much alike” can also be argued for the vocals, not just their entire songs, as Gomez has received criticism for sounding flat while Grande’s been compared to legendary multi-octave diva Mariah Carey for working the whistle register.

Like Gomez, Grande loves interacting with her fans — and like Gomez’s on-again, off-again boyfriend, Justin Bieber, Grande uses Twitter to do it.

“It’s really cool, I love my fans. I have really cool fans and I love being able to talk to them and check up on them on a daily basis. I love having that outlet,” she said.

But don’t be fooled: Grande isn’t playing the perfect role model on Twitter or anywhere else just because she knows a lot of people (roughly 5 million and counting) are watching. “I’m not going to not be a human being, but I’m also not going to do anything crazy,” the singer-actress said. “I don’t have to put on any front when I tweet or anything. I don’t pretend to be this perfect robot to look like a role model. I try to keep it as honest and real as possible.”
