It’s not often the names Katy Perry and Mariah Carey are uttered in the same sentence.
Indeed, one has a voice that has inspired generations, while the other’s vocals only function on VEVO.
Likewise, one is used to roaring atop of the charts, while the other is barely able to break the iTunes 1000 with her fourth “lead single”.
Put simply, the ladies’ careers are in different places and spaces in the best and worst of ways.
Yet, that didn’t stop Perry from waxing honest when quizzed about Mimi during an interview on Australia’s Sunrise this week.
Currently Down Under to promote her hit album ‘Prism’, the Pop force offered an “interesting” response when the ‘You’re Mine’ singer’s name was brought up.
See what we mean below…
When the show’s hosts erroneously labelled Perry the industry’s biggest female star, she corrected them, suggesting instead that it’s Beyonce that deserves such an honour.
Interestingly, though, when one of the hosts offered Mariah Carey as an option, the singer smiled and replied:
“Well…she is fabulous for a throwback, fabulous!”
