What is the Millennial/Gen Z equivalent of Tiffany or Stacey Q?

What aspects of them?

Today's young pop stars often grow their followings via social media and I associate Tiffany with her massive mall promotional tours. Both use a strategy of seeming accessible and normal. Both have an audience of mainly young teens and struggle with being viewed as authentic for adult audiences.

I assign this buzzfeed article on you tubers on tour to undergrads when thinking about celebrity today. It is a fun read. https://www.buzzfeed.com/ellencushing/sexts-hugs-and-rock-n-roll-on-the-road-with-the-teen-social

Ariana Grande is the first person who comes to mind: young, cute, peppy, telegenic, etc. I think all the various Disney Channel stars also fit this. In fact, wasn't Arianna Grande once one of them?

Grande was on "Sam and Cat" on Nickelodeon (a Viacom network)

That's what I was looking for.

Good read without shitting on their parade.

Was trying to come up with a 2016 pop equivalent that's the inverse of Vulfpeck.
