Surprise! Ariana Grande has a twin in Virginia!
Fans of the 23-year-old pop star can’t get over how much Instagram beauty Jacky Melissa Vasquez looks like the Grammy nominated artist — and she’s racked up over 190,000 followers thanks to their uncanny resemblance.

“People started to tell me I looked like Ariana back in 2010 when she starred in Victorious on Nickelodeon,” the waitress admits, according to the Daily Mail. “Ever since then I realized how much I do look like her. People stare at me in the street and I can sometimes hear her name being mentioned in stranger’s conversations because they think I’m her.”
Jacky recalls, “Ariana came to DC in 2015 and so many fans asked for a photo with me, I was dressed just like her which didn’t help, but I was more than happy to pose for them.” In fact, the Hairspray Live! actress now follows the 20-year-old on Instagram. “She commented on one of my photos saying that her cousin thought I was her, I couldn’t believe it.”
But Jacky has also experienced a few of the pitfalls that fame brings. “I have had some negativity, people have left hateful comments on social media, but mainly people are fascinated by the similarities,” she shares. “Some people might get annoyed by all the attention but I am completely flattered when people say I look like Ariana. She’s a hardworking, talented, beautiful young woman and I know so many girls would love to look like her.”
The Dangerous Woman hitmaker actually found herself in hot water this week after claiming to be “the hardest working 23-year-old human being on Earth.” People immediately bashed the star for being out of touch with the world around her. “Yes Ariana Grande is the hardest working 23-year-old on earth not the ones struggling making 60¢ a day trying to provide for their families,” one Twitter user wrote.
