Back in March, Grande hosted an episode of Saturday Night Live during which she impersonated famous personalities’ singing voices. The sketch — mocking music streaming service Tidal — saw the 23-year-old singer take on Spears’ “…Baby One More Time,” as well as hits by Shakira, Rihanna, and global icons Celine Dion and Whitney Houston.
But during an interview with London’s KISS FM UK radio station this week, Britney Spears was asked about Ariana’s impression. After being played the recording of Grande’s impression, Brit gave some faint praise: “That’s funny,” she conceded. “That’s really funny, wow.” But when she was asked if she thought the rising pop star had done her justice, she ultimately admitted, “I’ve heard better.”
