While Ariana Grande feels flattered by the comparisons to the legendary singer and five-time Grammy winner, Mariah Carey says she’s offended by the reported similarities.

According to a Dish Nation insider, the 45-year-old diva is poking fun at the 20-year-old pop princess and Nickelodeon star by telling friends that Ariana is “just another Mariah wannabe.”

“Mariah wants everyone — well, maybe not everyone — to succeed in this business, but she’s tired of being compared to every up and coming singer that has range,” a source close to Carey confided. “It was Christina Aguilera back in the day and now it’s Ariana. Mariah not only got a huge kick out the websites that reported Ariana stole her dance moves, but she went as far as emailing the link to friends with the subject line, ‘See, she’s copying me.’ At this point in her career Mariah should be confident about her musical talent and not worried about a singer who’s barely out of her teens.”

Carey, who released “Me. I Am. Mariah … The Elusive Chanteuse” to mixed reviews may be bitter because Grande’s song “Problem” with Iggy Azalea and Big Sean is poised to be this summer biggest hit.

“Mariah is clearly living up to her legendary diva reputation,” adds the source. “Ariana still considers Mariah one of her role models. She’s heard the stories that Mariah hates the comparisons, but she’s just taking it all in stride.”
