Everyone has been noting the similarities between Mariah Carey and new up-and-comer Leona Lewis and Mimi is pissed.
‘Honestly, there has been so many, “This is the new her,” and I’m like, ‘OK, show me the new her. Can she come and work for me and be my double? And I’m not particular talking about this girl Leona, because I only heard her once and I didn’t really hear a true similarity, particularly in the style of music.’
Mariah later added, ‘It is what it is and critics have compared me to so many people who are not really singers, and they’re certainly not writers.’
Girl, did you just say that Leona is not a singer?
I’m pretty sure she just knocked your ass out of the top spot on the charts.
Imitation is the best form of flattery. Embrace it!
