10 Times Ariana Grande Channeled Mariah Carey With Her Outfit Because, Come On, They're Definitely The Same Person

Neon is the new black. Cronuts are the new cupcakes. Oh, and Ariana Grande is definitely the new Mariah Carey — or so it’s been said. The rising singer and former Nickelodeon star has been compared to the pop diva quite a few times. Why? Because— let’s be honest — they sound almost exactly alike. While the resemblance can’t be heard in all of Grande’s songs, it’s pretty much spot on in her single “The Way.”

So, how do the two superstars feel about the comparison? Eh, they’re a tad salty. When Carey was asked about how she felt about the new superstar, she was careful with her words, but didn’t exactly support the comparison. And although Grande has cited Carey as her idol, she apparently told journalists not to ask her about the superstar during a recent trip to Australia. Ouch.

It’s not just their music, though. Grande has been spotted wearing quite a few outfits inspired by the original diva herself. Maybe it’s just a pop star thing, but some of the looks are so similar it’s scary. Check out these ten times Grande might have gone through Carey’s closet. Because, you know, divas can NEVER have enough sequins.

The High Ponytail

Well, well, well. What do we have here? Looks like Carey was sporting the ‘do long before Grande made it her signature style. It must be the best way for divas to keep their hair out of their face.

Silver Crop Top and Skirt

The silver sequin crop top and skirt? Pretty similar. The poses and back up dancers? Uncanny.

LDB: Diva Style

The sweetheart neckline. The black sequins. The hair. Looks like Grande may have gotten advice from the star for the Billboard Music Awards.

Hot For Hot Pink

“Whoever said orange was the new pink was seriously disturbed.”

The Ultimate Pop Star Look

Thought Ari was the first one to rock a short dress and go-go boots? Think again.

The Midriff Dress

What are the chances that both singers would wear a black dress with almost the exact same cut outs? We have a Hallie and Annie on our hands.

Animal Ears

At least Mariah kept hers saved for the arrival of the Easter Bunny. Ariana, on the other hand, just can’t get enough of hers.

Head-To-Toe 4th of July

Because we all love America.

Diva Dresses

Nothing says “I’ve made it in the pop world” quite like a floor length ball gown covered in sequins.

Thigh High Boots

Not sure why the high heeled boots trend made it all the way to 2014, but obviously Ariana had to try it out for herself.
