No, Ariana Grande isn’t a TikTok star (yet), but her look-alike Paige Niemann is.
The social media sensation gained popularity on the app because of her uncanny resemblance to the “boyfriend” songstress. She currently has 1.7 million followers, and a TikTok of her impersonating Grande’s Victorious character Cat has gone viral.
A fan account posted the video to Twitter, where Grande herself saw it and replied, mostly wondering why Niemann didn’t opt for a thank u, next lip sync, since she’s wearing the signature Ari pony and winged liner.
“i just wonder whyyyy the cat voice / dialogue,” Grande wrote with a crying emoji. “i am sure she is the sweetest sweet sweetheart forreal !! but it’s [definitely] bizarre seeing people blend the two worlds lmao.”
