An on-going documentation of Mariah Carey's inspiration.

Ariana Grande Is STILL Copying Mariah Carey

On the coattails of Ariana Grande’s newest studio effort, ‘Dangerous Woman,’ we must take a look at the reason why some people are not hopping on Miss Grande’s bandwagon. It turns out that this "dangerous woman" may not be as dangerous as we thought. Or as original as we thought.

Here, we have a picture of Mariah Carey and Ariana Grande. One of them is a living legend, with 18 Billboard Hot 100 #1 Singles (more than any other solo artist). The other has 0 #1 hits. It only makes sense for an upcoming singer to want to achieve the same success as the Best-Selling Female Artist. However, Ariana Grande draws so much inspiration from her idol, Mariah Carey, that she is imitating some of her legendary moves.

First of all, let us discuss their fashion statements:

Ariana Grande is well-known for her signature ponytail. However, who slayed this 'doo first?!

Okay... coincidence, right?

How about this sleek black ensemble?

Okay, this is just all a fluke. There is no copying going on here, keep on moving, Folks!

OKAY, C'MON! This is not even the same dress. But it is eerily similar.

How about this iconic MC look from 1995's "Fantasy" music video?

Maybe everyone has those shorts? I can't say....

I mean.... This is just a similarity. There is nothing unusual about this.

Ah-ha! Ariana Grande is a trendsetter! I mean look at that nifty fan. I am so glad she did something fir-

I stand corrected.

OK. I know what you are all thinking. Yes, these just all happen to be the same outfits (and props). However, this is not the only thing that Ariana Grande draws from Mariah Carey's prowess. Was Ariana channeling Mariah from her sexy 1999 Rainbow album when she wore this outfit?

We'll never know...

Maybe Ariana just happened to stumble upon the same outfit. Or maybe she stumbled upon this through her research.

Now how does Mariah Carey feel about all of these comparisons?

Clearly, Mariah is not impressed by her...

Still think Ariana is an original artist? Hear me out. Yes, just because she has a wide vocal range, does not mean that she is trying to sound like Mariah Carey. And yes, just because she is making music in the same genre as Mariah does not mean she is copying her. HOWEVER, let us now take a look at some very uncanny similarities between their song titles, artwork, music video concepts, and choreography!

Alright, Folks. It is now up to you to decide. Imitation? or Inspiration?

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
