Sam & Cat star Ariana Grande to omg! on Selena Gomez comparison: 'I don’t really see [the comparison]. We both started out in children’s television, I think we share that in common and we are both doing music.
But we are really nothing alike but if you look at us and compare our sounds we aren’t that much alike. She has been incredibly successful thus far in her career and I will feel lucky if I am just as successful.'
+ she's back together with Jai Brooks.

Ariana Grande told Digital Spy comparisons to Mariah Carey are 'a compliment'. She's an inspiration, she's the greatest female vocalist, so it was definitely a compliment. Mariah and Whitney Houston were my goddesses growing up.
We thought it would get to the Top 15 and that that would be a great debut and we'd celebrate. I didn't expect any of this, and I didn't expect it to debut at 10 on the Billboard chart either. It was craziness to me.'

After hitting iTunes on March 26 'The Way' sold 219,000 downloads in its first week, according Nielsen SoundScan, and debuted at No. 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 (see page 50). The Way samples Big Pun’s 1998 hit 'Still Not a Player' Ariana told Billboard: 'I cut my vocal on it, and then Mac and I had been hanging out for a while at that point, and I was like, ‘I really want you to feature on this record. What do you think?’ And he said, ‘Sounds like a hit to me.’'
Walk describes Grande as a 'triple threat': She sings and acts, but is also a viral star, staying actively engaged with her 5.4 million Twitter followers and 2.6 million Facebook fans. She’s also the only Nickelodeon act signed to Republic. Ariana requested and was given a 'carve out' deal when she joined 'Victorious,' leaving her free to sign with any label.
'All of these really amazing songs are coming out of nowhere, and most of them are from Harmony. When I do ‘Sam & Cat,’ and when I act as Cat, of course I’m still going to be there for my younger fans. But I’m also growing up—I’m almost 20. I’m not going to do anything crazy, but I want to do music that I’m passionate about.'
