    Everybody does that dance move?

    • Queen Amanda Bynes

      Omg, just saw this on twitter. Ari is a mariah stan, it all makes sense.

      • laura

        Aww come on, that’s cute!

  • Anonz

    Ariana has singing prowess, no one can deny that. But I’ve always felt like she was copying someone or being a complete fake.

    • Sue

      like every other person in Hollywood. Everyone has a fake persona or an image to uphold. No one really shows their true colours in that industry.

          Lol you’re really going to use that? Then I can say the same thing about the OP thinking she’s a complete fake. How can we judge her….when no one knows her or is in that industry.

        What do you mean no one shows their true colors? And doesn’t every single human walking have an image to uphold? We all want to be portrayed a certain way, and we all want to be liked. That is a psychological fact.

    Yeah if you watch the full performance arianna did copy mariah but that’s nothing new because girl has been copy mariah since her album droped. First her songs then the music videos (baby i, copied mariahs fantasy music video outfit and all) her other song the way copied mariah carey songs (same begining and melodie) her misic video for right there was a straight rip off copy of mariah carey’s music video for Its like that, and then ariana copied mariahs hair style, then color of hair, and again mariah’s outfit for her black n white music video all I want for christmas (gogo boots, hair, dress everything), then she copied mariahs hair from mariahs music video for her song honey, now ariana os copy mariah dance moves from the song Honey.
    All while saying that whitney Houston and india are her “idols”. What a copy cat unoriginal kid she is. Smdh.

    • Queen Amanda Bynes

      she has mentioned mairah being her idol to.

      I think she was doing her own thing then after she covered emotions she got all this new attetion and praise.

      I think thats when she delayed her album (which was suppose to come out in 2012) So she could have a 90’s vibe.( and add more whistle tones)

      Im an Ari stan but im not blind,obviously she was influenced by Mariah, but artist are always influenced by others.Ari isnt the first to be influence by another artist and she sure as hell wont be the last

        but there’s a difference between being ‘influenced’ by someone, and full on ripping them off. for example, someone who’s influenced by michael jackson, like bruno mars, takes michael’s disco flare and fuses it with his own unique melodies and style of writing to make it his own, all the while paying homage to michael honourably, without exploiting his legacy. someone who is ripping another artist off, on the other hand, copies their every outfit and move like ariana is doing to mariah at the moment. I love ariana, and I always say if mariah isn’t doing mariah let ari do mariah. but this is getting ridiculous. with a voice like ari’s, all this ripping off will not allow her to be a legend like she has the potential to be. because legends are inspired, but original. and ari is inspired, but ripping mariah off.

  • Sue

    The amount of hate for this girl.

    This is no revolutionary dance move. When I first saw it I immediately thought it was simple dance move, even I do it sometimes. It’s quite easy, and makes sense since Ariana can’t dance. She isn’t copying Mariah. Sheesh.

  • honesty

    No, Isaac Boots is the one who copied Mariah, if anything. He is the choreographer and not Ariana, though I highly doubt he referenced Mariah to choreograph this routine.

    Mariah’s career is 4 years older than Ari is .They really need to stop comparing them.Both are slaying. Mariah is a living legend and Ari could become one.Let’s just be thankfully another powerful voice is getting attention .

  • Truth

    Mariah is the queen but ariana cant dance…she doesnt have any rhythm and shes so skinny now she reminds me of nicole ritchie when she became anorexic on the simple life show. Just no. No boobs, no hips, no nothing. She looks like a 7th grader from a far but when you see her face, you see its a lady who takes to too much coke the pimples are showing and you can see all the plastic surgery done to her forehead and lips etc… So just dont try to defend this wannabe creep.

    • Queen Amanda Bynes

      mariah cant dance either.

  • Tash

    It is a singular move, not a whole routine! According to this logic, We should all go around accusing others of copying, just because we use the same languages to communicate & we are all living, breathing human beings too?? Right?? We all know both ladies are vocalists & focus heavily on their vocals & don’t do much dancing. Both are a little stiff & it’s obvious that both would use simplistic moves due to that & so they can focus on their vocals. By the way, How dare you all breathe??!! Stop copying me. :p

    • honesty

      Preachhhhhhh

  • jau

    Honestly, who cares? I don’t even like Mariah Carey, in her interviews she always sounds like a stuck up bitch. If people think Ariana is a spoiled diva then imagine Mariah.. She’s twice more.

  • ikeepempressedt

    “I bet she can’t do it like me. She’ll never be MC!” LMFAOOOO

  • euhru

    theres something off about her idk. she creeps me out its like shes trying to be an adult moving on from nickelodeon with her music career and stuff but at the same time she awkwardly dances and has the looks of a 11 year old.

  • C L

    I don’t know what it is about her but … I don’t like her. I feel so terrible saying that about someone I’ve never met *shrugs*

  • yung illuminati

    I thought ariana was a mariah tribute act anyway

  • Marina And My Diamonds

    We know she did, someone on here pointed that out already. Actually plenty someones have pointed this out.

  • anon

    She has a beautiful voice and she’s a beautiful girl. She just needs more originality. Oh and to stop being all snobby.

  • Marina And My Diamonds

    If she just admitted Mariah is someone she looks up to it’ll be easier on her. But her, her family and friends keep saying she’s nothing like Mariah everything she does is “authentic”. It doesn’t look good.

    Her dancing is so awkward… I can’t.

  • Andie Young

    This is the most common dance move

  • nl

    tbh everyone did that dance move before or after mariah but because ariana is alwyas linked to mariah people will think she’s copying her.And IF she’s copying her it’s understandable cause she’s her role model or something

  • oml

    Im not a fan of Ariana or Mariah but neither one invented that dance move.. they have choreographers who shows them the dance etc.. so Ariana isnt copying Mariahs dance moves its the choreographer.

  • Maggie

    If it was someone else I’d say it was a coincidence and everyone might have danced like that at least one point in their life but it’s Ariana.

    • Caitlyn D

      i agree with you.

  • mrh

    it’s not even the same, the arm moves are different

  • mo

    Yes because mariah Carey is the only person who has ever done that dance move -_-

    Seriously OU do you realize how f-ing OLD that dance move is???

  • Jay

    aren’t most dance moves copied from one thing or another anyway?

  • Godney

    No, she didnt copy her… but whoever was in charge of the choreo knew that lol

  • casey

    whats the surprise? she copies mariah carey on everything! her song the way straight up sounds like a mariah impersonator lol. my bf thought it was a marish song at first.

    not trying to hate on her! ariana is talented and a great singer (which i cant say for most pop stars today). she looks up to mariah and theres nothing wrong with that! justin timberlake copies michael jackson, gaga copies madonna. who cares?
