Tamar Braxton On Ariana Grande: “There’s One Mariah”

Published: Wednesday 2nd Sep 2015 by David

Tamar Braxton’s  forthcoming spot on ‘Dancing with the Stars’ isn’t the only thing that’s set to place her name in headlines today.

Why fans of the donut-loving Ariana Grande may take an interest in what Braxton has to say about her?

Find out below…

In an interview with US Weekly Braxton played a game called ‘Name Game’ where she was tasked with sharing her thoughts on artists and TV personalities.

The publication reports:

When Ariana Grande’s name comes up, Tamar blurts, “I just have my own opinion because everybody says she’s the new Mariah, but I don’t agree with them because Mariah’s my icon. So there’s one Mariah! But Ariana can sing her face off,” Tamar says, laughing.

Her comments come before the September 11th release of her new album ‘Calling All Lovers’ which isn’t expected to fare as well as its predecessor ‘Love & War’ when it hits retailers.

What do you make of her remark?

    I detect no lies here. When a new artist comes along and all I can think of about of them is who they remind me of, they have no true artistry.

    • maurice September 2, 2015

      Hey, I totally understand what you’re saying.
      To me, Mariah is in a total different league than Ariana, BUT.. I’m sure when Mariah came around in the ’90s, she was compared to the likes of people from the ’70s, ’80s.

      At the same time, it’s a given fact that Ariana is going hard to be Mariah 2.0. Also, I respect Tamar for keeping it real. While she’s a clown many times of the day, she has stayed true to RnB music, and I fully respect her for that.

    I mean, where did she lie tho?

    Please don’t mention a LEGEND/ICON like Mariah with a fan.

    Its facts, facts darling, that at 21 years old mariah had:

    1. Written an entire number 1 cd. She wrote every song on that cd.
    2. had 3 number one singles she wrote
    3. Was the winner of 2 GRAMMY awards.

    At 21, Arianna – has basically had 3 top ten hits which she DID NOT WRITE and had Big Seans goods in her mouth.

    You can’t compare them. It’s like Comparing Aretha Franklin to Ciara.

      • Jana September 2, 2015


        These stans keep trying to come for Mrs. Mariah, who like Mrs. Whitney is an OLD G.

        don’t skip around town with a broken heart to Love Takes time and forget your teas.

        You can’t compare little ms. disney with the squeaky voice to her idol.

        I have reserved seats for each and every one of them.

  5. Missy September 2, 2015

    girl mariah is a legend just like whitney

  6. Centurion September 2, 2015

    I’ve always thought she’s the new Obesetina tbh. She does cover a lot of Mariah’s songs, and that’s about it.

  7. mike September 2, 2015

    i know who mariah carey is but not sure about the other chick

  8. Tina04 September 2, 2015

    Boo boo Mariah Carey’s music saves lives. there is only one original and NO MATTER HOW MUCH this gay ass site hates on her she is 100% the real deal.



  9. bonbon September 2, 2015

    Tamar tells no lies that girl aint no MIMI

    that little girl too nasal for me with no life experience


  10. Suicide Blonde September 2, 2015

    Agreed. Mariah is one of the greatest women in music.
    Now playing: Petals.

        @Paul, I’m transgendered

    • Stephy September 2, 2015

      She really is, Paul. Mariah’s catalog is up there with the best (imo). And, the fact she produced, composed & write 95% of it is amazing. That’s more impressive, than just singing 5 octaves.
      My top 4 FEMALE discographies in Popular music:

      1) Madonna (hands down, the BEST catalog from a female Pop artist EVER)
      2) Mariah Carey (imo, the greatest POP fused with R&B catalog ever, period)
      3) Janet Jackson (Control – All For You = Perfection)
      4) Rihanna (And, to think she’s only 27. Her catalog will be INCREDIBLE, by the time she’s 45.)

      • Suicide Blonde September 2, 2015

        I will put others at #4 but it’s all about tastes 😉

        Ok for the white trailer park crawling on a stage in dirty white underwear to sell records.


        but she still will go down in history as a harlot.

        Mariah/whitney will be the vocal queens.

    • bonbon September 2, 2015

      PLAYS fly like a bird:

      Somehow I know that there’s a place up above
      With no more hurt and struggling
      Free of all atrocities and suffering
      Because I feel the unconditional love
      From one who cares enough for me
      To erase all my burdens and let me be free to

      Fly like a bird, take to the sky
      I need you now, Lord, carry me high
      Don’t let the world break me tonight
      I need the strength of You by my side
      Sometimes this life can be so cold
      I pray You’ll come and carry me home

  12. Stephy September 2, 2015

    That “Mariah Vs Ariana” video, pretty much should just end those comparisons. Ariana can sing, and she’s a precious baby (well, at-least to me). But, I’ve given up on her as an “artist”. She can reach the same notes as Mariah, but it’s not backed up with any resonance, power or soul. Her voice is lighter than Mariah’s (which is a problem for me). Mariah’s voice is the lightest I will go, as far as listening to a vocalist.

    Ariana’s natural voice doesn’t even sound like Mariah. BEFORE, she became famous, she was a Youtube singer. Her voice sounded like a basic white girl. She’s taken that “airy/whisper” vocal style, Mariah made popular. And, use that kind of vocal style, to make her voice sound somewhat special. She’s copied Mariah’s rifs & runs down to a T. It’s not even funny. She mixes her airy/whisper voice with her belting voice, just like how Mariah use to do. But, the difference is Mariah had a soulful tone, backed with a resonance chest voice. And, her voice sounded like a grown woman. Whereas, Ariana sounds like a precious baby.

    Simply put, I feel nothing, when Ari sings. But, she CAN sing. Her BELTING range is actually higher than Whitney & Mariah’s EVER been. But, it’s NOT backed up with power (Whitney) nor excellent resonance (Mariah). So, it’s NOT effective.

    And, Ariana’s whistles aren’t even strong. They almost sound like lil whispers. I’ve YET, to see her WOW me LIVE, with her whistle register. Anyways, Tamar can blow. But, she’s inconsistent with her live showcases. And, that’s something her IDOL Mariah, suffered from too. INCONSISTENCY!

    • BGKC ???????? September 2, 2015

  13. What now September 2, 2015

    I can’t stand this Muppeteer. She mad bc Ariana won the vote 4 the next Mariah and outsold ha old ass. Go get another botox injection fugly ass b****. U ain’t Toni.

    • BGKC ???????? September 2, 2015

      Why all the hate though boo?

  14. erica.319 September 2, 2015

    They always claiming people are the next diva.

    Arianna does NOT have the magic. She just does not have it.

    There were times when Mariah and Whitney would sing you would get goosebumps. those big hurtful ballads and those big powerful notes.

    Arianna does not have that gift.

  15. marvin September 2, 2015

    while mariah set by and let her chauntuse masterpiece go to hell.

    Mariah should take a note from Janet. Bring you “A” game.

    #faded was a hit.

    Grande is just nasty, a nasty person and disrespectful

  16. Shonyonce Minaj September 2, 2015

    I’m so confused this post has Yall pressed for what reasons. Everyone knows Mariah is Goddess okay. Ariana isn’t even trying to immulate her like chill with that BS. When she first came out yes her team was tryna present her as the new Mariah so she could pop, but after that Ariana took control Of her image and artistry debut Ariana is very R&B Mariah-esque but sophomore Ariana is all her. Now Ari has an amazing range and and I digress her annunciation needs MAJOR WORK but she is amazingly talented and she is one of the voices of MY generation (I’m 20) like let some of these new artist in and let them do there thing stop clinging to the past. I love Mariah with my heart soul body and mind but like damn stop bashing Ari for trying to be the best she can be she’s out here selling out arenas ight! And chill with that #1 s*** back in the 90s it was a different time there was no way to easily access music for free that’s why album sales and singles did so well back then now it’s a different story! All I’m saying is music has evolved embrace it and the new artist who are actually out here grinding.

    • Tina04 September 2, 2015

      oh lawd we have “ms fix your life” here an accounted for

    Um…..instead of answering these questions, lets ask why 9 days before your album drops, you still don’t have a pre-order or an album cover? This album is a flop waiting to happen.

    Tamat, I love you, but why would you release the album on 9/11? That’s like a flop waiting to happen…..a train running off the trqcks that wont be stopped. Why, sis?

  24. Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans September 2, 2015

    I know this is random as hell, but please bare with me. When Joseline performed her medley on the 2nd part of the reunion, I died when she tried to whine that s*** booty. Lol, but when she said “I’m the baddest b****. You an average b****. Why you mad as s***?” I got my life right in front of my tv on that night. I love Joseline, but it’s that s*** that make me kii and stan for her. I wish her music was charting, though.

    • BGKC ???????? September 2, 2015

      Kutty Kat is lowkey my song and that performance in those red pleather outfits gave me what I needed.

      • Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans September 2, 2015

        I know right! I was like yes……make Mimi mad that her man wanted you instead of her! Hush them h*** talking s*** about you and show them a real bad b****! She wore the hell out of that outfit. I love Jessica Dime, but to be honest she could never! I didnt like how stevie was trying to steal her moment at the end with that struggle high note though. Kii!

  25. Pookie September 2, 2015

    Josline is a bum. Disgusting.

    • Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans September 2, 2015

      Chile, you wish the baddest punta would even dare to respond. Kii, girl! She’s the baddest b****!

  26. Theman September 2, 2015

    Mariah has belted up to a bb5 in the studio. Ariana doesn’t necessarily hit every note that MIMI does. She hasn’t hit Mariah’s highest high note, nor has she hit Mariah’s lowest low note. Ariana is a very good singer. But Mariah is just in another echelon.

  27. yelyah the alternative queen September 2, 2015

    Ohhh ohh uhh tamar Brixton really dragged that donut eater and her ponytail to filthhhhhhhhhhh, foh. ariana flopping like lana del lames sobriety chile, ching ching

      NOT you trolling under two emails and forgetting to change the avi on the other one.

      NOT Halsey SLEIGHING your fave’s ENTIRE first week debut career with her FIRST album and no promo.

  28. Mark111 September 2, 2015

    Ariana Chalupa only sounded like MooMoo on her first album. She has her own voice now and doing her thang while licking doughnuts and hating America/Americans. Irony because Tamar is one of the first wanna be Mariahs. Plus Tocos sings LIVE, MooMoo don’t. (Save your 199something videos, she’s still just a studio vocalist.)

      • Mark111 September 3, 2015

        That’s your “best vocalist of all time”? Youtubers sound better.

  29. Missy September 2, 2015

    Loveeeeee MARIAH

  30. OMG Logic!!! September 2, 2015

    The Goddess of vocals will always be imitated but never duplicated. You betta stan Ms. Braxton.

  31. @JanetCIARA_ September 2, 2015

    Mariah is a QUEEN!

    • BGKC ???????? September 2, 2015

      Then does that make Ciara the royal court jester that makes everyone laugh and Kiki because her entire career much like her relationships, lace fronts and feet trying to squeeze into designer heels too small for her feet, she’s a failure.

      • BGKC ???????? September 2, 2015


  32. Theman September 2, 2015

    MC is the greatest complete singer period. Constantly misusing the studio word will not change that. Considering that your favorite artist Mark isn’t a singer at all, you should just shut up. No matter what. MC is a TITAN !!!!

  33. Meteorite September 2, 2015

    “You on your job, you hatin’ hard,
    Ain’t goin’ feed you, I’mma let you starve.
    Graspin’ for air, and I’m ventilation,
    You out of breath, hope you ain’t waitin’.
    Tellin’ the world how much you miss me,
    But we never were, so why you trippin’?
    You a mom and pop, I’m a corporation,
    I’m the, press conference, you’re a conversation…/…I wish everybody all the best of luck and if this is the career path they choose, hope that they can achieve longevity” – Mariah Carey ????

  34. Navy Nick September 2, 2015

    The way she said is correct; Mariah Carey’s career is timeless and 1 that will not be matched by any newcomer… BUT Ariane is an amazing singer and really if she got the right team she could do so much more..

  35. Pookie September 3, 2015

    Ms. Nick spoke that truth. Mariah Carey is a timeless Entertainer. Lets think about this:

    1. Timeless Xmas CD
    2. Biggest selling Xmas song of all time
    3. Two of the biggest selling singles in history with One Sweet Day and We belong together
    4. 200 Mill sold
    5. Number 3 biggest selling artist of all time.
