Katy Perry has admitted that she thinks Ariana Grande is the “best female vocal in pop today”.
The Firework singer didn’t hold back on her admiration for fellow pop star Ariana, when she heaped praise on the singer during a radio interview.
20-year-old Ariana released her debut album Yours Truly in September, which went straight in at number one on the Billboard 200.
“I don’t know if you know this girl named Ariana Grande. I love her. I love her so much. I think she has the best female vocal in pop music today.
“She has literally the best voice, the best voice live. She kills it. She’s so good. And she’s the sweetest girl and I just wish her the best,” Katy told Sirius XM.
Ariana recently confirmed that she’s dating Nathan Sykes from British boy band The Wanted, and even admitted that she’s already met his parents.
28-year-old Katy was on air to promote her upcoming album Prism but when asked about her friends in the music industry she couldn’t help but compliment the young pop star.
“I got to hang out with her and listen to her record before it came out,” Katy elaborated. “I wanted to reach out to her and be like, ‘Hey girl, you’re just about to go through a whirlwind. Let me give you some tips if you ever need anything — a hairstylist, makeup artist, whatever.’”
Katy also revealed that she has recently become close to Stevie Nicks too, and that she likes to see what singing veterans have to say.
She commented that she was honored that Stevie would make time for her.
“I actually just became friends with a fantastic woman named Stevie Nicks. She is a beautiful woman and I hope to have tea with her in London.
“She just has so many little nuggets of wisdom and you know, kind of sees straight through my soul. She’s very kind and a sweet woman,” Katy shared.
