Pop star fans are animals.
The squabble started with Grande, who basically rocks at impersonating other celebs, doing an impression of Spears singing her hit “Baby One More Time” on Saturday Night Live, like, months ago. Apparently, Spears wasn’t even paying attention because she didn’t even seem to know about it.
Until, that is, she appeared for a radio interview with London’s Kiss FM and the DJ played the clip of Grande impersonating her. She actually loved it.
“That’s funny,” she said. “That’s really funny.”
She even complimented Grande’s “smooth” voice, even though she said she prefers her own voice and she’s heard better impressions in her day. Not even shady, right?
Wrong, if you ask Grande’s fans. They took to Twitter in a totally insane rage over Spears’ apparently insulting comments, and they were out for blood.
Of course, Spears’ fans were quick to clap back.
Well that (needlessly) escalated quickly. Team Britney is pretty vicious.
Am I the only one who feels like this fight started over basically nothing? Come on, fam. Let’s all just get along and enjoy the music we enjoy without all the salt.
Are you Team Britney or Team Ariana?
