Britney Spears Weighs In On Ariana Grande’s Impersonation Of Her: ‘I’ve Heard Better’

Nicole Scherzinger, Ciara, and even longtime “rival” Christina Aguilera have all lent notable impressions of pop princess Britney Spears over the years.

But, when it comes to relative newcomer Ariana Grande, who took to ‘SNL’ earlier this year to show off her best impersonations of Rihanna, Shakira, and – you guessed it – Spears, it appears the ‘Work B*tch’ singer feels Ari’s reenactment of her unique Grammy winning vocals could use a little work…b*tch.

Relive the moment and read Spears’ criticism below:


Via EW:

But during an interview with London’s KISS FM UK radio station this week, Spears didn’t seem too thrilled by the “Dangerous Woman” singer’s rendition.

After being played the recording of Grande’s impression, Brit gave some faint praise: “That’s funny,” she conceded. “That’s really funny, wow.”

But when she was asked if she thought the rising pop star had done her justice, she ultimately admitted, “I’ve heard better.”

      Ariana Grande from treating that fan like crap and erasing the poor fans pics from her personal phone because she didn’t like them to licking the donut to her arrogant attitude this girl is in the same bad lane as Christina Aguilera “who put her hand out for Mary J Blige to kiss”. These girls think they the NEXT Mariah Carey but lack the songwriting skills, the longevity, the hits, the number ones. Sad, that someone has pumped up Ariana Grande to think that she’s special, because really she’s NOT.

        How can you say Ariana is trying to be something while she is being herself? Besides, she loves her fans to death. If she doesn’t then why does she constantly remind them how much she loves them? Why did she invite some of her fans for coffee at one occasion? Why she donate money to a fan for college tuition? Why did she make one fan’s dream come true at a Make A Wish charity event? Hmmmmmm

    “I’ve heard better.”

    Dyiiiiiiiiing! The AUDACITY of this Britney Darts non-singer is hilarious.

    • ByeJay September 30, 2016

      Y’all are so pressed to wanna find something to say she said hat in regards to the actual impersonation not the singing. You f*** sit on this blog just waiting on any moment to throw shade

      • Danzou September 30, 2016

        Another mad Britney Stan. HE’S RIGHT. Whether it was the actual impersonation or actual singing either one is better than Britney on her best day. So cut it.

      • kwinzy September 30, 2016

        Honda Civic, please tell me what was missing with Ari’s impersonation Brit’s “singing?” I’ll wait. We’re supposed to pretend like she has power house vocals or something ’cause I didn’t get the memo…

    • LISA LEVINE October 1, 2016

      Ariana Grande may have the “better voice”, but at this rate and age Britney was a SUPERSTAR. Ms. Grande has not even had a number 1 and her tour is not selling. She will NEVER have the career of Britney. Britney has reached icon status with not having 1 octave in her voice. Workkkkkkkk

      • JOHNVIDAL October 1, 2016

        I agree. Ariana has no identity or artistry at all. So despite having a better voice (nothing special and with a total lack of soul and own style. And that diction…) than Britney, at least Britney was star material.

  3. Cisco September 30, 2016

    😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

  4. RICHIE_RICH September 30, 2016

    😱😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭

  5. Danzou September 30, 2016

    Lol you’ve heard better? Not from yourself I know that.

  6. LmfaoHoe September 30, 2016

    The shade indeed Mrs. Spears lol …also Ariana n SNL thought they ass were slick in that 90s Diva Playlist, she covered Celine n Whitney but not Mariah ??!! lol the Diva that ruled the 90s! that was tasteless shade include her version of Work.

    • Paulo September 30, 2016

      Ariana used to stan for Mariah and then Mariah and the lambs started trying her. I totally get why she didn’t do it and it’s not to be shady but rather to avoid stirring the pot

      • Lmfao-H** September 30, 2016

        First of all Mariah ain’t say nothing (shady or bad) about Ariana, She wished her “longevity” and as for the Lambs please thats a poor excuse.

  7. Paulo September 30, 2016

    LMAO that sound a bit shady but she’s right. Nicole’s take is the funniest and most spot on Britney impersonation.
    Ariana and Demi both NAILED Xtina impersonations though you can tell they’re real fans

  8. Weezy Tha Goat/ Zayn is 👑 September 30, 2016

    Ariana would sing Britney under a table.

    • Justafan September 30, 2016

      Ariana should ONLY be singing under a table

  9. Rima September 30, 2016

    Britknee she sounds better doing you than you do.

  10. King B September 30, 2016

    I guessed she prefers Aguilera’s impersonation.

  11. Danzou September 30, 2016

    If anything I’d be pleased if someone told me I sounded nothing like Britney. Honestly that’s kind of an oxymoron considering no one really knows how Britney even sounds.

  12. Mark111 September 30, 2016

    Taco Girl done way better with Dion and she did great as Mariah on her first album. So Brit is right, there’s better impersonations.

    • Annalise October 1, 2016

      I KNOW your ugly ass isn’t talking when you stan Rihanna. The only thing that could imitate that bïtch is a damn goat 💀

      • SailorMoon October 1, 2016

        F*** you Annalise!

      • Annalise October 2, 2016

        DIE @STDmoon !

  13. #Nicole Nation October 1, 2016

    I agree, “I’ve heard better.”

    But at least Ariana actually sang a britney song live!

  14. truthtea October 1, 2016

    • #Nicole Nation October 1, 2016

  15. Nowqd Redv dibut it ash trjoan ivy blobukz Need UK timely Ukuno eremixi October 1, 2016

  16. Lake Erie October 1, 2016

    I like Ariana BUT Brit!?!?! You better SHADE!!!!! lol… Sounds funny but that was cute innocent shade lol. I’m tired of people coming for Britney and I’m glad she’s speaking her mind. These last couple years she’s been RAW lol. Now this is proof that the tweet she tweeted last year in response to Iggy was Cleary cute shade too. Idk what Iggy thought lol.

  17. Coolness October 1, 2016

    LOL, I’m sure Britney meant no harm but damn, if that wasn’t some good ol’ fashioned SHADE! I mean, the fact that we haven’t heard Britney’s live voice in years but she claims that someone who CLEARLY has the upper hand in vocal ability didn’t do an impersonation of her justice is simply jokes upon jokes.

  18. JOHNVIDAL October 1, 2016

    LOL I didn´t know Britney could shade. Cute.

  19. OMG Logic!!! October 1, 2016

    At the end Lipney still has a Grammy and a Diamond certified album. Pepper Ann can’t even go triple Plastic.

  20. FC/JC October 1, 2016

    Shadeney

  21. Kiii October 4, 2016

    Ariana can imitate Britney’ voice but she damn sure can’t imitate Britney’s successful career…
