“I’ve openly supported and loved and been a fan of Ariana‘s for years and years and years. So I think she would say and I would say that I think she makes things and does things to inspire. That’s what an artist is all about,” she said.

“I think it’s a little sad and hurtful when I see so many people really bullying and harassing me in a lot of ways, taking away the legit-ness of anything I do…I just don’t think we’re to be compared. We’re our own people. She’s definitely inspired me because she’s one of my idols. I love her so much. It makes me sad when I see people pitting us against each other when it’s nothing but love. I adore her and think that she’s a f–king icon…I’m my own person.”

Back in August, Madison opened up about being one year clear from doing this.
