Ariana Grande recently released her amazing single "Focus" and it seems she has a certain star to thank for her inspiration!

Ariana stopped by the Zach Sang and the Gang radio show to talk about her new single and her upcoming album and revealed that Katy Perry is one of her best friends and says that the “Part Of Me” singer has been an inspiration for her own career.

“I went to Katy's show at The Staples Center a couple years ago and I was totally inspired by it and was like ‘Wow, I wanna do this one day.’ And then just three years later, I had my own show there, and she came, and she held my hand in the prayer circle and she was like ‘girl, you were here a few years ago watching me and now I’m here watching you, you better kill it girl.’ So she’s always been really supportive," said Ariana on the show.

We think it's great that these two singers are so close and that Ariana finds inspiration from Katy!
