Ariana Grande has revealed that she sees being compared to iconic diva Mariah Carey as a "blessing" and a "massive compliment."
The 20-year-old singer is regularly likened to a young Mariah due to her impressive vocal range and throwback 90s-style pop ballads, and the star insists that doesn't bother her at all.
Speaking to Rolling Stone magazine, Ariana admitted: "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."
The Almost Is Never Enough starlet added: "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."
Grande's debut album Yours Truly took out the number one spot on the US Billboard chart this week, with the singer already planning a follow-up release for February next year.
