Chances are, you’ve been pulled into a TikTok time wrap more than once, it’s super addictive. It’s video after video of gas lip syncing, fluffy little animals and, apparently, doppelgängers. You might have come across 14 year old Paige Niemann on your TikTok wanders and had to look twice. Paige is the absolute image of Ariana Grande, and there’s no denying it.
According to the Daily Mail, Paige was first told she looked like Ariana when she was just 10 years old. Since then, she’s owning the look. Using YouTube tutorials, she learned how to do her hair and makeup just like the singer so she could really take on the look alike style.
Paige then started doing impressions of Ariana and her following grew, and grew, and grew. Understandably, people just could not believe how alike the two are. But it also brought along a few ‘haters’ too. In an interview with Dazed, Paige spoke about the negative comments she’s received: “Ariana fans get so offended when people do anything similar to Ariana. They’ll be like ‘be yourself,’ or that they don’t like people stealing, or that there is only one Ariana, that I’ll never be her.” Eek.
We couldn’t imagine what it would be like to be mistaken for Ariana Grande herself, but hey, you go girl.
