For her look, the “7 Rings” singer wore a strapless baby pink crop top paired with white pants and white platform heels. Baby pink swatches covered the knees on Grande’s pants, and for her hair, she opted for a slick ponytail.
The look is a modern recreation of one of Spears’s most iconic ’90s concert outfits. See the resemblance?
This isn’t the first time this year Ariana Grande’s paid tribute to Britney Spears. In a clip for That’s My Jam, Jimmy Fallon’s new music variety game show, Grande sang a bit of “Oops!…I Did It Again” and even did some of the famous hands-on-heart choreography. Legends supporting legends.
It has, of course, been a tremendous year for Spears, who was freed from her 13-year conservatorship on November 12. Grande was a vocal supporter of Spears during this process, writing on her Instagram in July, “You are so very loved and supported.”
“I’ve been in the conservatorship for 13 years,” Spears said in an Instagram video posted November 16 (which has since been deleted). “It’s a really long time to be in a situation you don’t want to be in. I’m just grateful, honestly, for each day, and being able to have the keys to my car, being able to be independent and feel like a woman, owning an ATM card and seeing cash for the first time, being able to buy candles. It’s the little things for us women, but it makes a huge difference. I’m grateful for that. It’s nice. It’s really nice.”
She continued, “But I’m not here to be a victim. I lived with victims my whole life as a child. That’s why I got out of my house and I worked for 20 years and worked my ass off.”
