Paige Niemann, a 15-year-old Californian known for her striking resemblance to pop star Ariana Grande, has faced backlash once again, this time for posting stripped-down photos on Instagram impersonating the singer.
Niemann has gained over a million followers on TikTok, where she posts videos mimicking Grande’s mannerisms and voice.
This caught the attention of the real Ariana Grande, who tweeted about one of Niemann’s recent TikTok videos where she mouths dialogue from Nickelodeon’s Victorious while dressed up as the pop star.
However, Niemann was unhappy with Grande’s response to filmmaker Jordan Firstman’s impression of the TikTok trend, feeling that Grande was shading and degrading her work.
Niemann’s Instagram photos further stirred the controversy, with some feeling that the impersonation was going too far. Niemann responded to the backlash, stating that she was just trying to entertain people and that impersonating Grande is not who she is in real life.
Overall, Niemann’s impersonation has garnered mixed reactions, with some praising her for her accuracy while others feeling that it is inappropriate and disrespectful.
