Katy Perry Gushes Over Newcomer Ariana Grande
"I think she has the best female vocal in pop music today" says the Roar star…
Perry stopped by Sirius FM on Monday (October 14) to promote her latest album Prism, but got to talking about the 20-year-old Nickelodeon star.
The Roar singer revealed: "I love her. I think she has the best female vocal in pop music today."
The 28-year-old superstar continued: "She has literally the best voice, the best voice live. She kills it. She's so good."
Katy also admitted that she had given Grande, whose album Yours Truly went to no. 1 in the Billboard charts, some friendly advice about finding her way in the music industry.
She dished: "I got to hang out with her and listen to her record before it came out because I wanted to reach out to her and be like, 'Hey girl, you're just about to go through a whirlwind. Let me give you some tips if you ever need anything - a hairstylist, makeup artist, whatever.'"
Perry added: "She's the sweetest girl and I just wish her the best."
Yesterday (October 15) Ariana took to Twitter to thank the Wide Awake singer, linking to the interview and writing: "Thank you so much @KatyPerry for being a true friend & an inspiration to me i love you."
She's currently dating singer Nathan Sykes of boy band The Wanted.
