Ariana Grande is a world star and a talented musician who sang many iconic songs like “Into You” and “Side to Side.” At 30 years old, the star is also known for her incredible four-octave vocal range. Even as a world star, there are many things about her that people don’t talk about.
From how she used to be in musical theater to her hidden skills like impersonating fellow celebrities’ voices. Did you know the award winner is also a native Floridian? Let’s go!
She started her career in a musical theater.
Grande got her first music-related gig at a musical theater. She performed at the Fort Lauderdale Children’s Theater and was the lead in “Annie.” She was also at the Broadway musical “13.”
This is how Grande is actually pronounced.
Grande’s grandfather read her name as ‘Grand-ee’ and that’s how she remembered she grew up. She shared, “My brother was like, we should say ‘Gran-day.’ It’s so fun to say it. I grew up saying ‘Grand-ee’ and I think of my grandpa and I wish I said ‘Grand-ee’ more.'”
Ariana Grande has a cat allergy.
The “Cat” Valentine of “Victorious” is actually allergic to cats. She shared about it back in 2010 in a tweet.
She wore her hair in a ponytail after it was damaged from coloring.
Grande received a lot of criticism for her repetitive hairstyle, the ponytail. The singer explained in 2014 on a Facebook post that her hair was damaged after her role as Cat Valentine who had red hair.
She’s got a talent for vocal impressions!
Grande made an impression of Jennifer Lawrence on SNL. But not just her voice – she’s also capable of imitating Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera’s musical voice.
She hates her debut song and music video.
“Put Your Hearts Up” was an upbeat song that propelled her to popularity. But years later, the star that had been releasing more and more iconic songs revealed that it felt “so inauthentic and fake.”
“For the video, they gave me a bad spray tan and put me in a princess dress, and had me frolic around the street. The whole thing was straight out of hell. I still have nightmares about it and I made them hide it on my Vevo page.”
And yes, it’s still hidden from her Vevo page.
She shares the same manager with Justin Bieber, Tori Kelly, and other kids-turned-stars.
Her manager is Scooter Braun, the same person who’s also in charge of Justin Bieber, Carly Rae Jepsen, Tori Kelly, and Dan + Shay.
She’s a Harry Potter fan and a Slytherin.
Grande loves Harry Potter and any fan would know how she’s often talking about her love for the franchise. She’s got a few tattoos inspired by the show, like the spell “Lumos” that’s used to produce light in the show. After clearing the quiz, she found out she was a Slytherin.
She’s also been 100% vegan since 2013.
Grande tweeted in 2013 that she was going 100% vegan with a “macrobiotic Japanese” diet according to her trainer, Harley Pasternak.
She was raised Catholic, then feels the most connection with Kabbalah.
The star shared in 2014 how she and her brother went to check a Kabbalah center in Florida and “really had a connection with it.” She continued, “And since then my life has unfolded in a really beautiful way, and I think that it has a lot to do with the tools I’ve learned through Kabbalah, I really do.”
“Somewhere Over the Rainbow” was the first song she remembers singing.
The pop star said she remembers singing “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” as her first song.
Grande was sued in 2013 for “The Way.”
Approximately 10 years ago, Ariana Grande was sued for one of her top-charting singles, “The Way.” The song had allegedly copied “Troglodyte (Cave Man)” lyrics, a 1972 song.
