Weigh In: Miley Cyrus Thinks Ariana Grande Should Be “A Little Less Sweet”

Published: Saturday 28th Dec 2013 by Rashad

One’s a reformed Disney darling who has twerked her way to the top of charts while another has taken a more, umm, clothed approach to chart-topping.  But, despite differing travels to Billboard’s heights, the similarly wholesome beginnings of young divas Miley Cyrus and Ariana Grande respectively drove them to become household names.

Now that Cyrus has tapped into her inner bad girl, the ‘We Can’t Stop’ singer is encouraging Grande to shed her good girl image and follow suit.  In a recent interview with New York Times, the country darling addressed her vixen image, Grande’s image, and her 2013 overall.

Do you think Ariana should heed Miley’s advice?

Via New York Times:

On racism and feminism:
“It’s actually really funny how many people could watch my performance, and they think it was, like, sexist and degrading to women, and somehow people found that it was racist, which I couldn’t even wrap my mind around. Because I’m like: “How do I win? If I have white dancers, then I’m racist. If I have black girl dancers, then I’m racist.” We know we’re not racist, and I know I’m not putting down women. People got a rise out of me saying that I was a feminist, but I am. I’m telling women be whoever you want to be….

My grandma, who is alive, was living in a time where there was no way in hell that she would’ve ever thought there would’ve been a black president. I mean, never. And my grandma’s like, not even 80, so this is in a short period of time that things have changed so much. I really thought about it a lot when Nelson Mandela passed away, because I couldn’t even imagine living this life and seeing how much it’s changed. So, you know, I look forward to when I’m older, my kids being like, “What do you mean people ever even talked about what color your dancers were?”

On her encounter with Ariana Grande:
“I don’t have a bunch of celeb friends, because I feel like some of them are a little scared of the association. This is terrible. I was backstage with [the rising pop star] Ariana Grande. I’m like, “Walk out with me right now and get this picture, and this will be the best thing that happens to you, because just you associating with me makes you a little less sweet…


She’s trying. I see her wearing the shorter things. She comes in, and she goes, “This made me feel like you.” And I’m like, “That was like my sixth grade prom dress.” She’s, I think, still on Nickelodeon. She has people that she has to kind of respect.”

Your thoughts?

    I think she should mature her image a bit shes 20 and comes off like a 13 year old i definitely don’t want her going the Miley route tho she has way to much talent to become a desperate attention seeking s*** like Miley.

    • Penelope July 10, 2014

      Your right, but she shouldn’t get that slutty, attention seeking image that Miley is known for. I’m sure that is what you meant, though. Ariana is great and seems way more intelligent than Miley. I mean, did you count how many times she used the word ” like ” and incorrect grammar. I ‘ ve stepped on smarter things and I believe she should mind her own business. Ariana can change her look if she wants. She did right by dumping the red hair. She’ll figure it out. As for Miley, quit being jeli of someone who’s way cooler and prettier. I think we all agree you have not changed for the better

      • Penelope July 10, 2014

        It’s me again. Miley, I loved Hannah Montana when I was seven and thought you were so pretty and wanted to be just like you

  2. Lana Del Bey December 28, 2013

    Why? because you’ve left an awful bitter taste in our mouths all year miley? b**** dont be jel of ariana’s sweet success, although she could change her hair everyone and again.

  3. JOHNVIDAL December 28, 2013

    Well, she´s right.
    But it´s also true that she should learn to sing or perform or something. I would never take an advice from someone who is a mess herself.

  4. Beyond Amazing (Cause Bey really is!) December 28, 2013

    Ariana don’t listen to this ugly fool. Honey keep on making great music with that wonderful voice and you’ll be cool. The only thing I wish you would do is change up your hair and wear different outfits other than those dresses. As for Miley girl stfu and take your lame as on some were. Your nothing but a poser.

  5. Mone December 28, 2013

    fukk both.

    • Penelope July 10, 2014

      Your just bitter and jealous. You are just upset because they both have more money and talent than you. Instead of bitching and sitting on your fat ass you should realize that Ariana is a good role model and maybe you should try to do something to be a role model as well. Or, if you really want to f*** them, start a blog or something and gather a group of people who are against the obsession with people who get their singing voices modified. And if you still like the idea of sitting on your fat ass, f*** you!

  6. BEYHIVE_MINAJ December 28, 2013

    Princess Ari doesn’t need to gyrate on Robin Thicke to make people buy her records. She has her beautiful voice to take care of that. Remember the AMAs? All she needed was a mic and she blew everyone out of the water. Not sticking her disgusting tongue out and twerk her flat ass.

  7. Cindy December 28, 2013

    She is fine the way she is, she doesn’t need to go down the w**** route like Miley! Leave someone for little girls to admire.

  8. LA LA December 28, 2013

    Just another reason to make me dislike this girl even more.

    When I heard Ariana Grande sing for the first time I was like “Yes” finally a girl that can sing and doesn’t need to sell herself short by taking off of her clothes to distract her talent.

    Now this girl Miley Cyrus is trying to take the wh*re route to success. SMH! Ariana doesn’t need to be naked to drive sales for her singles, she actually has talent and if she keeps this up we possibly put her beside the vocal legends like Mariah, Whitney, Aretha, Brandy and etc.

  9. Mark111 December 28, 2013

    Grande will follow the Mariah blueprint. She’ll be more of a classy s** while still looking innocent and somewhat child like. What Miley fails to realize is that AG relies on her voice, something Miley will never have. Miley HAVE to use shock factors to stay in this game, like Madonna cause they have no voice or dancing skills. Miley has about 6 more months til she’s burnt out or til the next chic grabs the media attention. See Gaga.

  10. Zave December 28, 2013

    I agree! Ariana needs to mature her image she is wayy to juvenile right now to be 20. Just like Justin Bieber and this “Vanilla Ice” persona of his. It’s terrible. I hope this isn’t the next generation…

  11. BeyRihStan December 28, 2013

    Ariana can sing but doesn’t appeal to her actual age group! She’s 20 but looks and acts 15. No bueno!

  12. 2bad2bme December 28, 2013

    Miley Virus trying to infect Ms. Ariana… Miley you should be a little less cheap

  13. Loyalty December 28, 2013

    I actually appreciate Arianas efforts to be anti controversial, s** selling and so on but I do find it a bit creepy the way she looks young, and plays on it. She is the same age as me. She is not 13 but sells a 13 year old type image. She could look slightly more mature and still maintain her class.

  14. Aisha December 28, 2013

    Whatever. Give Arianna a few more years, and she’ll probably be naughty.

  15. iconic cici December 28, 2013

    Lmao Ariana is in a corrupted industry im sure she’ll sell out to a sexual image soon like every other female artist.

  16. Rosie December 28, 2013

    No Miley, she doesn’t want to become a walking STD+ like you.
    However, Ariana does need to grow up a bit. She looks like one of those “barely legal” pornstars you see on Brazzers or something, and she’s 20. You can be kid-friendly and cute without selling a Lolita image.

  17. FutureCIARA December 28, 2013

    This is what Ive been saying all along!!!

    She needs to stop with the nice girl act and show us who she really is, People are buying her voice, not her act!!

    Her new image should start with an edgy cut, like when Rihanna ‘GGGB’

    But she should put her twist on it, we already have too many Rihanna’s

  18. bore December 28, 2013

    yo. make it all industry h***. grande is not far to be the next. *shrugs*

    the biz is what it iz. 😉

  19. MISHKA December 28, 2013

    This just shows how generous Miley is because she just told her competition Ariana how to shape her sophomore effort.

    I think Ariana is cute with her stockings, her arms shake and THAT hairdo, but as soon as she brings some edge and maybe some choreography in there, that will be a wrap for most of her competitors. Miley will be fine because she proved she’s resourceful but Selena, you in danger gurl.

  20. Beyond Amazing (Cause Bey really is!) December 28, 2013

    No, I don’t want her to dance. Everyone is not meant to dance, she just needs to focus on being a wonderful vocalist.

  21. FutureCIARA December 28, 2013

    The new generation of girls is a Kii.

  22. HoneychildPlease December 28, 2013

    Honestly i hate the persona she presents, it’s rather boring! I can’t stand her child like personality it’s annoying so maturing wouldn’t hurt her, but no to the Miley extreme.

  23. *ℙᏫℙ ℝᏫᎩAℒᎿᎩ* December 28, 2013

    She’s Giving Advice Now?

    But I agree to Some Extent, The “Sweet-Girl” Vibe may bore some People, Ariana needs to Get Edgy Every now and then, or She will be Leona Lewis 2.0 if you know what i mean.

  24. HoneychildPlease December 28, 2013

    LOL she can’t shake the DISNEY or Nickelone whatever the f*** she was on…

  25. *ℙᏫℙ ℝᏫᎩAℒᎿᎩ* December 28, 2013

    and Miley, Please, after seeing that “adore” video, you Need god in your Life, I feel you don’t know what to do with yourself anymore.

  26. T December 28, 2013

    it isnt like she’s hurting anyone she’s actualy being a good rolemodel for kids…what kids kinda need this day.

    Ariana Grande is in her “Music Box” era. Give her some more time. She will soon be in her “Touch My Body” era

    All I need for her to do is take that ponytail down and dress her age.

  29. The Boy Toy December 28, 2013

    She does need to spice things up. Her album is stuck at 310k because of her childish persona. Hopefully she’ll leave Nickelodeon, change her hair and dress like an adult by the time her next album drops.

  30. The Boy Toy December 28, 2013

    @Stephy

    I can’t with that name gwurrrrrl lol

  31. jfkasy (navì) December 28, 2013

    I’m starting to like Miley a lot,she is already serving us that take it or leave it pie.And yes Ariana needs to stop letting mom dress her up and Nickledeon tell her what to do.To make it these days you need honesty,not posing like a barbie doll in order to be politically correct.We all know she blows pot and twerks behind the scenes so stop the act already coz no one is here for that.This aint no 90s where potheads like Whitney posed as saints in order to send the right message to the kids.Just dont be a tool like Miley,though she’s a tool i love.

  33. Jeffrie December 29, 2013

    I think Ariana should just do her. Do we really need every female singer to depend on being naked and using gimmicks to cover up subpar talent. If anything I would like to see Ariana go the Adele route and just make beautiful records

  34. Music Stan ( Aaliyah Bey Ciara Janet Kelly Rowland Mary J Blige etc) December 30, 2013

    Ummm ppl are complainimg about her having this childlike image the reason why she has to maintain this image because is a child star on Nick!!! she probably will change it up a bit when she is ready and older I’m look at Raven she play a 17yr forever and she is laugh all the way to the bank

    But can we for once not bash her up to pulp so much? I’m not taking sides. I’ve just heard a few, like 2 or 3, of her songs so i’m not a fan or hater, per se.
    getting to the point. All she said was something utterly harmless and laid back to Dearest Ariana, Princess Most High. Sorry for the snide remark Arianators. XD
    Miley didn’t lay out some future prospect plan or force AG into signing a blood oath to become ”a little less sweet”.
