Ava Max is speaking out.
Since her smash-hit ‘Sweet But Psycho’ ruled the charts in 2018, she has drawn comparisons to one of pop’s most prolific artists, Lady Gaga. However, in a new interview with SiriusXM Volume, she thought that she would draw comparisons to music legend Mariah Carey instead.
Her words below…
“They only compare women first of all, but I get it. The blonde hair, the pop music, the theatrics, we are both 5’2. I could go on and on. I get it. She is incredible, so it is an honor.”
“Never in a million years would I thought they would compare me to Lady Gaga and then it just started all of a sudden, I was like ‘that’s so cool,’ I thought it was gonna be like, Mariah Carey.”
Max explained that she believed she would be compared to Carey because of the high-note that she hit at the end of ‘Sweet But Psycho.’ However, she feels that was not the comparison people drew and focused on her looks instead.
“They look at women with the look. They don’t hear what you sound like. They see your look, which is not cool. Stop comparing women’s looks.”
