Ariana Grande was in the recording studio with Nick Cannon this week. No word on what these two are working on together, but Ariana has said that one of her biggest inspirations is Mariah Carey – Nick’s wife. Nick posed with Ariana for this pic and wrote:
“Me and my homegirl @ArianaGrande in the studio! She is super talented.”
Some have pointed out similarities between Ariana‘s new song ‘The Way’ and Mariah’s early work, a comparison Ariana says is “definitely a compliment.”
The former Victorious actress is also busy at work on her new series Sam & Cat, in which she stars alongside iCarly star Jennette McCurdy.
“We’re two very, very, very close friends and Sam is a bit of a tough guy, a tomboy. But Cat doesn’t really get it,” Ariana said of her upcoming show. “She’s very loving, [with] very open arms… So it’s interesting to see how Sam reacts to that.”
The 20-year-old also says she and Jennette get along in real life, too. “We’ve become really good friends,” Ariana said. “It’s great.”
