Star: Ariana Grande is as insane, nightmarish diva who loathes Mariah Carey

wenn21641476

I didn’t realize until now that Mariah Carey actually said something about little Ariana Grande earlier this year. Apparently, Mariah was being interviewed on some radio show and she was asked about Nicki Minaj (“who?” Mariah asked), Beyonce (Mariah claimed she hadn’t heard “Drunk In Love”) and Ariana. Mariah threw subtle shade at Ariana, saying: “I wish everybody all the best of luck and if this is the career path they choose, hope that they can achieve longevity.” OUCH. That was Mimi’s way of saying Ariana is a flash-in-the-pan.

I bring up the Mariah stuff because it plays into this story from Star. Apparently, Ariana is already a crazy diva and everybody behind-the-scenes hates her guts because of her obsession with her left side and her toddler drama (she should totally get with Justin Bieber). And it seems like Ariana HATES Mariah. Watch out, girl.

While filming a TV special in mid-August, Ariana Grande was impossible to work with! “She was a total nightmare,” explains a source on the set. “She demanded to be shot only on her left side and told the lighting crew that if they used red light, she would ‘kill herself’.”

Producers at the venue were so disgusted with the way she treated everyone, they almost pulled the plug!

“They were saying that she is, hands down, the most difficult person they have ever had to work with,” adds the insider.

And don’t even think of comparing her to another famous diva. “Ariana was mad that Mariah Carey dissed her in an interview and it makes her furious to even hear Mariah’s name,” snipes the source. “Ariana insisted that Mariah’s name never be brought up in her presence.”

Ariana’s awful attitude wasn’t a one-time thing – on the set of a recent photoshoot, “She arrived hours late, with no explanation, and refused to do anything the photographer asked. She was acting like a crazy person. One minute she was all sweetness… then she’d storm out, only to come back two minutes later, all smiles.”

She also refused to do the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge because she didn’t want anyone to see her without layers of makeup and her hair extensions. An insider said: “She doesn’t care. Her skin is a big problem for her and she absolutely does not want to be seen barefaced.”

[From Star Magazine, print edition]

I lol’d at “she told the lighting crew that if they used red light, she would ‘kill herself’.” She is literally the most hyperbolic person ever. Literally. And if you don’t believe she is literally the most sardonic, driest, funniest, most fabulous hyperbolic diva ever, then I will kill myself. I did feel bad for her about her skin concerns too – that might be why she wears so much makeup, to the point where she looks like a toddler hooker. But that’s the cycle of bad skin – wearing so much makeup probably contributes to her breakouts too. Time to see a dermatologist.

    Why is every popular star of the moment supposedly a ‘diva’? How sexist.

    • Red32 says:

      Or maybe it’s because most young/child stars are spoiled brats. I don’t see any love for Justin Bieber, either. But I’ve never heard anything but nice things about Dakota Fanning. Not everything is sexism.

      • aenflex says:

        I agree.

      • Kaya says:

        Yes, but that’s an assumption, isn’t it? It must be crazy living the life Hollywood kids do, especially during confusing teen years. And it’s not as if the adults surrounding them bother to teach them how to be decent people.

        I have read/watched her interviews. She seems normal.

      • HH says:

        I’m going to add on to what Kaya said. While I have no doubt there are truly young, bratty Hollywood stars, I think some of the attitude is due to constantly resisting pressure. I bet TONS of Hollywood people think they can coerce younger kids to do things they necessarily wouldn’t want to do. Yes, that’s where parents come in, but some probably don’t excel at this, especially when dollar signs are involved. Maybe the “bratty” label has been applied to some that simply have a strong sense of self and won’t simply do what they’re told without asking questions.

        I’m in a good mood today, so I’m willing to give everyone benefit of the doubt. ;)

      • SpookySpooks says:

        I have seen her interviews and she comes across as either bitchy or bored, sometimes both.

      • Bridget says:

        @Kaya: think about how often these child stars hear ‘no’. They’re making people a lot ofmoney, and by turning them into a commodity the emphasis ceases to be on raising well-adjusted, productive members of society, and is now placed on keeping your little performer making money. Child stars have a reputation for being badly behaved because they typically are: could you imagine being around a teenager who always hears ‘yes’, who has a pile of money, and who has the sense of entitlement that frequenrly comes with fame? No thanks.

        Also, I don’t know that I would call it sexist that Grande already has a reputation as a diva. It was bound to happen even just from her dedication to only being shot from her left side.

      • P.J. says:

        EXACTLY @Red32.

        Some people have an inexplicable need for women to be viewed as victims no matter how awful said woman’s actual/alleged/reported behavior.

        As someone who very much likes to think of herself as an independent, educated, self-governing female, I resent that type of thinking very much. (Too much social saturation and/or mid-use of a word actually takes away it’s power which can be quite a dangerous thing.)

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      Eh. We don’t really have the male equivalent for “diva” but if we did, Beiber would surely qualify.

      Have you ever seen an interview with Ariana? She has a pretty terrible attitude.

      EDIT: Red beat me to it.

      • Rice says:

        Divo – the male celebrity overflowing with egotism, elitism, snobbery and narcissism. Can be seen occasionally ranting for more than 15 minutes about how special they are (See Kanye West) or may urinate in hotel buckets (See Justin Beiber).

        By the way, it’s already in the Urban Dictionary.

      • Nicolette says:

        I thought the male equivalent for “diva” was “a**hole”.

      • map leafiscrap says:

        Great legs, but a bad singer with bad songs and backup dancers.

    • Tom Cruise loves balls says:

      Tom Cruise, Beiber, Jaden Smith all little Divas…
      Nothing sexist about it
      Now go make me a sammich!

    • lola says:

      Spoiled brat no surprise! Her brother comes off as a racist and woman hater so guess the nasty just runs in her entire family.

  2. Dolce crema says:

    She has bad skin? I’m impressed with her makeup covering that

    • CG says:

      Yeah you def can’t tell her skin is bad at all. I wish I’d had makeup like that when I was in my teens and had bad skin! Absolutely nothing made my skin look that good.

  3. It is what it is says:

    Toddler diva!!!

  4. kcarp says:

    If she is anything like her brother Frankie on Big Brother then yes she is a horrible little diva. He suggested that a HG should kill herself after she performed a little ceremony for his dead grandpa. Maybe it all runs in the family.

    • Juliette says:

      I had no idea who this girl was until her awfully narcissistic brother Frankie insisted on referencing her at every moment in time. Can’t believe he’s still on the show, when he clearly doesn’t need the money like the rest of the contestants; Frankie just needs the attention. Desperate, both of them.

    • Isabelle says:

      Her brother is the worst. I’m a live feeder, & he was flipping out last night. Talking about how America had it in for drag queens (from their last Team America mission) & it’s was why he’s getting BB hate. He’s so ridiculous, & you can tell he had a very spoiled upbringing.

    • doloreschurch says:

      He is the worse. I liked when he disclosed all of his family secrets he had been hiding and half of the house guests had no idea who his sister was. I didn’t until him. The kid needs to humble himself.

    • Lucinda says:

      This is exactly what I was going to say. When he, Christine and Caleb went to see the Dallas Cowboys, Christine told the other HG’s that Frankie was insufferable the whole time and acted like a complete diva. He refused to do anything that was suggested and at one point demanded someone get him a coffee because he was so stressed out. The way he talks about his sister and how much he loves her, either she totally enables his diva behavior or has the same attitude about life as he does. It’s much easier to suspect the latter.

  5. Jen says:

    If I have to endure anymore cupie-doll poses from this brat, I will kill myself.

    • Anony says:

      I grow tired of her as well. Nonetheless I can empathize with someone suffering from acne and unhappy with short hair that doesn’t grow. I wear mineral makeup from time to time when my skin is really bad since it is clean and supposedly will not contribute to breakouts (hasn’t yet in my experience). Sometimes it’s the only thing between me and crying for an hour in the mirror. I just went to the hair dresser recently and they cut off way more than I wanted! I am now wearing hair extensions, it gives my real natural african american hair a rest and is one less thing for me to get down on myself about. Of course i don’t go around in some sort of costume all the time. I like my natural look and want to be accepted on the basis of that, but I’m not a celebrity either. I imagine there’s a possibility I’d be just as neurotic about my image if I were a celebrity as sensitive as I am.

      • Jag says:

        As a teenager, I was put on all kinds of antibiotics to clear my skin. What I have found out as an adult is that all of those antibiotics actually made my skin worse because it hastened yeast overgrowth. Candidas – yeast overgrowth – can cause acne, as well as other issues. You might want to do some research and ask a professional about it to see if it applies to you as well. As long as I avoid dairy and most sugar, my skin is clear. (Yeast feeds on sugar.) I can eat ice cream or a candy bar and will have bad breakouts the next morning. Best wishes!

  6. jenny12 says:

    Ugh, my kids love her. One is at her free concert now. She’s like a Bratz doll.

    • PennyLane says:

      “She’s like a Bratz doll.”

      Perfect!

    • Nopity Nope says:

      Dying. Literally dead.

    • rwatx says:

      Best description of her

    • Jenni12 says:

      You should see the poster my kid brought home. Thick makeup, huge, fake ponytail…. I was like, you can’t be serious. And her backup dancers pretty much did everything. She kept nervously playing with her ponytail and squeaking, “I love you!” when prompted by the hosts. There were kids sleeping on 5th Ave just to see her perform 3 songs.

  7. Lis says:

    How can a fifteen year old be a diva? Isn’t the correct term spoiled brat? ;)

  8. NewWester says:

    Can Ariana and Paris Hilton ever stand up straight? Both of these women are headed for some serious neck and back problems in the future.
    Also watched Ariana’s brother on Big Brother and he is a douche

  9. Hissyfit says:

    Eh. She’s one of the few pop star out there who can actually sing live and still sound good. She just gotta stop with that annoying ponytail.

    • Abbott says:

      She’s pretty great live and agree, the ponytail has to go (along with the vinyl/latex getups with the boots).

    • karkar says:

      Thank you. That pony tail is annoying. She has to many hair extensions in that tiny head of hers.

    • MsMercury says:

      She has a nice voice but I cannot understand a word she sings. She has a mumble mouth.

    • SpookySpooks says:

      She has a big range, but personally, I don’t like the colour of her voice, it’s sounds quite nasal, I don’t understand how of the things she says and her songs are very generic. Does she write anything herself?

      • Erinn says:

        Not only that, I can’t understand her. She can hit notes, but what good is that when you’re unintelligible.

    • lola says:

      Seems as if she comes from a nasty family if her brother is any example and after reading this it all makes sense. He is the worst example of a gay may and CBS should be ashamed of themselves. She is not someone that anyone’s child should look up to as she is an example of what is wrong in this world, and in this day and time with all of the sound equipment they can make a chipmunk sound good. She sets a horrible example for the youth of this country!!!!

  10. Abbott says:

    There were rumors circulating that she tried to pull the same stunts at the White House’s “Women of Soul” tv special earlier this year (or was it last year?).

  11. Jaana says:

    I have read stories of her behaviour for a long time. She isnt the sweet little timid person she displays.

    • Pix says:

      Except nothing about her looks sweet. I take one look at this girl’s face and want to walk the other way. I think she and Lea Michelle want to pretend like they “look” sweet, but they are not fooling anyone.

    • SpookySpooks says:

      I went on youtube and looked up mor eof her interviews. She seems nice in some, and really bored and bitchy in others. But she talks like a 12 year old. She’s not eloquent at all and comes across as really dumb,

  12. KJC says:

    I do not doubt this story in the least. If anyone watches Big Brother, you’ve had the displeasure of seeing HER big brother Frankie who is a terrible human being. He’s 31, but lies and says that he’s 28, and brags that he’s a “social media mogul” (whatever that’s supposed to mean). Latest gem from him is insisting that gay men do not have a choice, but lesbian women do.. This guy is seriously a piece of work, and I suspect it runs in the family!

  13. Dash says:

    She is obsessed with being thought of as pretty. Watch any of her music videos, it’s all incredibly rehearsed links, batting her eyelashes, posing at certain angles. I think it is seriously all she cares about.

    • Mel M says:

      Seriously. Just from reading about her on this site makes me imagine her just sitting in front of her magnifying mirror staring at every part of her face obsessing over it via Charlotte on SATC looking at her pores. This is the selfie era and look at what it does to people.

  14. Eleonor says:

    To me this girl came out of nowhere, I don’t know who she is and why suddenly she is “a thing”.
    And now I need to say something really really awful: the photo with her left side smirking at the award makes me want to slap her.

    • jwoolman says:

      I knew her from a Nickelodeon show Victorious set in some mythical performing arts high school, she was one of the regular cast and she really does have a very good voice. Her character (Cat), a stereotypical ditz, was tolerable in small doses but not really as the lead in the crossover spinoff Sam and Cat, also starring a character (Sam) from iCarly who likewise was tolerable in small doses but really too obnoxious as a lead without more nice guy buffers as were abundant in iCarly. The actress playing Sam (who can act) needs to get better roles, playing a mindless cruel bully for so many years doesn’t seem like a good career move. I have no idea if Ariana can act since the character Cat she played as written in both shows was so hopelessly one-dimensional and stupid. But she can definitely sing, and that’s why she’s popular and getting attention now.

      • Elyse says:

        I used to watch that show. It was ok. Though I was astonished on how talented the kids were. Too bad it was wasted on a corny live-action show on Nickelodeon. As for Cat, I couldn’t tell if she was retarded (or had some mental condition) or was just plain stupid. I always assumed it was the latter, because she could occasionally display logic.
        She can sing, but her voice is extremely soft. And when she sings in duets her voice doesn’t stand out.

      • Amy Tennant says:

        I love Jennette McCurdy! I meant to watch Sam & Cat, but I never got around to it. I heard the show ended because of behind-the-scenes drama, and I was hoping it wasn’t Jennette’s fault.

      • Mel M says:

        Wow, easy. Please don’t use the R word when you are referring to something or someone you deem as stupid, it is very offensive to a lot of people and judging from the rest of your comment you use the word to describe someone with any kind of cognitive disability that they are not in control of. No one wants to be referred to by this word. There are a lot of others words you can use instead.

      • Elyse says:

        @Mel M Sorry I wasn’t trying to offend anybody, I’m just used to using that word. I don’t use the ‘R’ when I’m describing something/someone as stupid, I use it to describe someone that portrays a stereotype of what they perceive as mentally disabled. I don’t call people who are truly disabled as retarded and I don’t refer anything stupid as such.

  15. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    Just yesterday, we were forming a club of irrational haters of this Barbie from Hell. I wanted to throw her favorite dope toy from the 90s (when toys were dope) off the Empire State Building. TheOriginalKitten suggested burning all of her dope toys in a huge bonfire while smoking dope. JustChristy had tons of great ideas, my favorite being making her walk barefoot across a pile of Polly pocket dolls while Barney sang his theme song non-stop in the background.

    She just makes me stabby. All sickos are welcome to join the club. If you don’t, I’ll kill myself.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      But we found her Achilles Heel.
      Dump a bucket of water over her head then promptly arrange a photo shoot of the right side of her face under red lighting.

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        Wow. That’s it! She’ll melt, though, and the club might end up in jail. That would suck.

        Btw, Joan Rivers said she probably has a My Little Pony vibrator.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        Good point. We don’t want The Club behind bars.

        Is it weird that I kind of want a My Little Pony vibrator? I’ve been in a bit of a dry spell lately…

      • Snazzy says:

        Please don’t kill yourself! Can I join? If only just to stab Barney and watch this idiotic talking Barbie break down?

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        Snazzy, as it happens, we desperately need a Barney stabber. Welcome to the club.

        OKitt, every woman should have a vibrator. The My Little Pony part is totally a matter of taste. I prefer Ninja Turtles, but to each their own.

      • Catriona says:

        Bahahaha!! :D I am game to help in accomplishing this! @theoriginalkitten @goodnamesalltaken @snazzy and everyone else in this club, let’s do this :D

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        Burn it down, Catriona!

      • Amelia says:

        Can I get in on this?
        I’ve got a decent portfolio of maimed Barbie dolls from my childhood. I think it’s about time for a reprieve.
        Maybe get a model UN of cuddly toys to judge over Instagram Barbie’s war crimes…?
        (I sh*t you not, Barbie is now on Instagram.)

      • Snazzy says:

        Yahoooo! Let’s do this!

    • Can we use her extensions for kindling the fire and burn her baby hooker boots too? If so then I’ll be there and bring some honey oil to spice things up. I will also wear a Pedobear onesie in honour of the Barbie from Hell.

    • Bridget says:

      @GNAT: It cracks me up that you want to make her cry.

      That she even has songs charting to shows what a terrible summer for music its been.

    • Reece says:

      I want a giant hormonal zit, you know that ones that won’t go away no matter what you put on it, the ones that Katy Perry/Duchess Kate/Nicki Minaj amount of makeup won’t hide, to pop up on the left side of her face and wait for the melt down. And the stories that will come out about it, preferably along with a video, bought by TMZ.

  16. Kate2 says:

    Is it bad that Today played some songs of hers yesterday that I didn’t realize were hers and I like them?

    I generally take stories from Star with a very large grain of salt. But if her brother is an a-hole then it makes it more believable.

    She’s singing live on Today right now. She sounds really good.

    Ugh. I’ll show myself out.

    • Jenny says:

      You can take this Story in the Star with your usual amount of salt. People who were there have dismissed it as fiction.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        It might be fake but this is the girl who insists on only having the left side of her face photographed. You don’t see anything a bit odd about that? I mean, it’s not that she “prefers” to have her left side photographed, she INSISTS. That’s pretty diva-like. Also, this is not the first story about her having a bad attitude.
        Where there’s smoke, there’s fire.

  17. maybeiamcrazy says:

    Her insistence on showing only left side of her face and not wanting people to see her bare skin makes me thing that she is extremely insecure. She once cried on the red carpet because of a comment on Twitter too if a remember correctly. She 20 years old. How bad her skin can be?

    • Size Does Matter says:

      Agree on the insecurity. I’d say she’s more insecure and immature than diva. We’ll see how she acts at 30, if she’s still a thing. Those left-side-only contortions are pretty ridiculous.

    • SpookySpooks says:

      I’m not going to shade her for having insecurities. Having such deep insecurities in your teens can criple you quite a lot in adulthood.

      • maybeiamcrazy says:

        I don’t want to shade her too. Those insecurities doubling up with pressure of being perfect is horrible. If it is the case, I hope she gets over them because it might turn toxic in future.

    • Zip says:

      You can have acne well into your thirties. My mom had really bad skin until she was forty and I, at 29, also still have it. It got better since I went vegan (no dairy) and industrial sugar-free but it’s still bad. I don’t wear heavy make up and didn’t wear any at all until two years ago. I have seen a lot of dermatologists and no one could really help. It just sucks.

  18. Erica says:

    People who were on the set already have told that the story in the Star was nonsense.

  19. Diana says:

    She looks like she puts her makeup on with a trowel. Too much. She needs to wash her face and let it breathe a little.

  20. Talie says:

    Mariah, Madonna, all these aging divas… they need to learn to be gracious to the younger generation. Who knows? They may need them for a song collab.

    • Erica says:

      This behaviour by aging stars is typical for showbizz. Aging sportmen for instance normally support the younger generation wherever they can.

      • SpookySpooks says:

        Because aging sportsMEN are seen as heroes, whereas aging entertainers ( especially women) are seen as dried up flowers trying to compete with the youngsters.

    • Michelle says:

      Madonna and Mariah have earned the right to be divas after decades of exceptional work.

      Who the hell is this girl? Her attitude will sink her.

  21. jaye says:

    I don’t give credence to anything printed in Star. Now, if the story was reported by TMZ I’d be more inclined to believe it. They seem to have reliable sources on their payroll everywhere.

    • Gypsy says:

      @Jaye
      You have my respect, for being a smart independent thinker. Also, try gossip-cop for fact checking.

      • bluhare says:

        Gossip cop goes to publicists who are paid to make their clients look good. Don’t look for anything that makes a client look less than perfect there.

    • Michelle says:

      TMZ’s main story source is PMK.

      • jaye says:

        Agreed. I have to admit that the show is a guilty pleasure and watching it, I’m surprised by how much they get right. (And not just the Kardashian stuff).

  22. MindlessContemplations says:

    But why only her left side? What is wrong with her right side.

  23. Gypsy says:

    Rubbish!

  24. word says:

    I don’t know how true this story is. On the shows Victorious and Sam and Cat, she had no problem being filmed from all angles. If you’ve seen all her music videos, she also is shot from all angles. I try not to believe everything I hear. As soon as someone gets some fame, the media is ready to tear them down, especially female stars.

    • Gypsy says:

      Especially female stars…….So, I refuse to help them use women to devalue women

    • Rachel says:

      When she was on Nickelodeon, she was almost a nobody – she was in no position to make any sort of demands lest they give her the boot. In her music videos, she has full control of how she comes across. If she wanted to, she could have every single frame of the video re-touched. If I recall correctly, Britney Spears was retouched in a music video a couple years ago. “Before” shots leaked that revealed they’d slimmed her down quite a bit.

      Think of a music video like a “selfie”. If you don’t like it, you can delete it or re-touch it. There are girls who probably take hundreds of photos of themselves before finally finding one they’re satisfied with and, even then, they’ll probably STILL tweak it in some way to make them look their best (even if it’s just adding a flattering filter). Other photos are candids – you have no real control. Someone takes your photo and that’s that. If you looked horrible, you look horrible. The only thing that can be controlled is your pose. So, if you think that your left side is your sweet spot, that’s how you’re going to pose. It’s the reason why 99.9% of younger women pose with one hand on their waist – they think it makes them look better.

      • word says:

        I understand, but she was still filming Sam and Cat when she had her first single go number 1. She was a huge star while filming the final season.

  25. pnichols says:

    Someone needs to go into time out.

  26. AlmondJoy says:

    If this is true, Big Sean certainly has a type. I heard similar rumors about Naya Rivera.

    I hope this story is made up though. Sometimes, when we already dislike someone we are QUICK to believe the first negative thing we hear about them because it adds weight to the feelings we already have. I hope she’s really as sweet as she portrays herself to be.

    I’m also disappointed to hear such awful stories about her brother. I’ve never watched Big Brother, he seems like a piece of work!

  27. Side-Eye says:

    The only thing I got from this is that I’m god-tired of her ponytail.

  28. Dirtnap says:

    I don’t care about the war paint, the extensions or the “They call me ChaCha because I’m the best dancer at St. Bernadette’s” costumes. But, girl, enunciate when you sing. Singing is not all about vowels. There are some consanants in there too. Find them. Use them. Don’t make me Google your lyrics because you’re a lazy singer.

  29. kristen says:

    Apparently she was also really rude to some kids who won a MTV contest to hang out with her. She only spent about 15 seconds with each of them to take a selfie. One of the kids took an additional pic and she had security make them delete it. Their father wrote about what happened: http://primalscreaming.wordpress.com/2014/08/26/meeting-ariana-grande-then-and-now/

    • word says:

      That was a very interesting read !

    • Catriona says:

      I read this too and I felt so bad for the father, the girls and the other contest winner. :-( I have no reason to believe that a father would just make up a story like that. The part about Britney was so touching though! And the one about the other celeb that hung out with them for 8 hours in Knotts Berry Farm and became family friends with them! :)

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      Oh man…poor dad and poor girl.

      Half-way through the read, I was getting ready to give Ariana the benefit of the doubt in the sense that sometimes, when celebs go from somewhat-well-known to super-star status, they have a lot of handlers suddenly involved, shuffling them from even to event, and filtering their time between press, fans, and commitments. It can be hard for the celeb to have a firm control over how their time is divided–but the fact that she made the poor girl delete all her photos…sigh.
      I also found the father to be really reasonable in his expectations of his daughter’s meeting with Ariana. Mostly, I think he was crushed to see his little girl get her heart broken.

      On another note, I’m happy that I’m not invested in any celeb. It seems so many of them disappoint….

      I read the whole thing. Just awful. Those kids put so much work into making such original gifts for her and she couldnt care less. Thanks for posting the link.

    • Marianne says:

      I can understand the no gift policy to a certain extent. I mean with super fame can also get some super crazies, and you just never know what you might be REALLY getting. But still, it does really piss me off when celebs blow people off AT A FAN EVENT. I agree with the father, its not like they were bothering her while she was out eating or on vacation or something.

    • Lydia says:

      On one hand, I get how put off that man’s daughter must have been to have been treated like that. On the other, worship someone you actually know, not celebrities. Stanning for some Disney freak is a waste of time.

    I guess its just me then, in regards to her singing voice. She makes my throat hurts just to hear her sing. I feel like she is straining her voice, if that makes sense. Also her voice on the shows she was on, supper annoying.

    • Nicolette says:

      It makes my head hurt to hear her sing.

    • ^ This. She always sounds like she’s shouting. Girlfriend is showing that she’s forcing her range and can’t really hit the right notes. Not even autotune can hide that. Anyone with more than a passing amount of actual musical knowledge/experience can hear it in her voice when she sings. I’ve only heard one of her songs and it’s obvious as hell in Problem that homegirl here does not have the Mariah pipes she thinks she has.

    • Monksolo says:

      sounds like she’s hooting

  31. Leprechaun says:

    Maybe she has psoriasis or eczema and it’s worse on her right side. I’m guessing she has something going on that makes her want to favor one side. That aside, I think it’s awful to be hours late and keep people waiting. But hey, that’s what makes such juicy gossip, which is why we’re here.

  32. Bohemia says:

    Of course she’s a flash in the pan. Have you heard her sing? It gives me goosebumps–the kind I get while watching a horror flick.

    • Caz says:

      her signing makes me think of cats yowling. I can’t understand a single word she sings.

      I give her 1 year. The record company will want someone new next year.

  33. JustSoShell says:

    I kind of believe this to be true. Her brother Frankie right now is on the current season of Big Brother and he is the biggest diva & douche ever. If she is anything like him, then lord help us!

  34. Sarah says:

    Gee – Mariah’s publicist is working overtime these days. Arranging pap shots of Mariah with the kids at Disney….trash talking Ariana (“on background” I’m sure). Whatever Mimi.

  35. Twinkle says:

    I honestly don’t understand her allure. She looks like a 12 year old playing dress up.

  36. wendy says:

    I have a friend that was her truck girl on a tv show a few years ago and she said she was a super psycho pathological nightmare and her mother was as well.

  37. Dommy Dearest says:

    I figured it out. Her right eye closes more/lid is lazy than the left side. Her obsession with her left made me squint hard to find the issue. Petulant child.

  38. Amy says:

    I see some people talked about the behind-the-scenes drama on the way the Nickelodeon Sam and Cat ended above. Didn’t the show end because the two girls stopped getting along? Recently Jeannette McCurdy wrong a long letter addressing a former anononymous “friend” about her toxic behavior and why she no longer could be friends with that person and put it up online. It was widely assumed Jeannette was talking about Ariana. Of course that is a totally childish thing to do, to air your dirty laundry like that. If Jeannette wants to be taken seriously in show business, she is going to have to not passively aggressively write a public letter to an unnamed friend. Ariana didn’t really address it and it ended up making her look better.

  39. Barbara says:

    My granddaughter worked a few days on her kid show when she was with a model agency in L.A. She said it was the worst job ever, and putting up with the two little diva stars of the show was something she would never do again.

  40. Ana says:

    Actually, I wouldn’t be too surprised if these rumors were true. A while ago, Alexander DeLeon from the band The Cab actually tweeted about how rude and stuck up Ariana was when he ran into her.

  41. NJblueeyes says:

    In two years it will be Ariana who?

  42. Naddie says:

    People are calling her a “kid”. She’s not a damn kid, she’s a 21 year old young woman. Very young, yes, but the way she sings and acts and people talk about her made me think she was a teen. Fiona Apple was 19 when she launched her first cd, Alanis was 21, so I don’t think she must be treated like a “confused, spoiled brat”.

  43. UttBugly says:

    Newbie here… just want to add my 2¢ about her douchey big brother on Big Brother, Frankie J. Grande. He’s an obnoxious, arrogant 31-year-old mean boy. I despise his loathsome vileness. Ick. Eewwwwwwww.

    • word says:

      He’s 31 ? Could have fooled me. You have to admit, he does make the show entertaining. But I do believe the producers are favoring him.

  44. Princess says:

    Ariana is definitely very sensitive and insecure if you haven’t already noticed. She cried when people made comments about her hair always being the same and made a rant about it. When the paparazzi catch her without makeup she hides her face behind her channel purses. She’s even changed her tone of voice and switched to a more edgy look after all the “You look like a twelvie” comments.
    She probably deals with a lot and
    Negative comments + pressure to be perfect + busy lifestyle + loss of freedom durning teen years + everything revolves around her in her job + attention from her fans constantly + influence from other popstars like Miley (Miley is giving her tips like be a more risky) + being rich/ getting anything she wants + not being able to trust lots of people.
    It all adds up. It has major effects on mental and physical health. When I’m under a lot of stress I can’t and don’t take anyone’s sh** and can act like a brat but I don’t mean to.

    It could happen to anyone; Justin Bieber, Miley, Amanda Bynes, Lindsay Lohan, Britney.

    Show business is tough and distressing. I wish that they could take it easy but they obviously can’t. Turns them into psychotic bit**y barbie dolls

    • Naddie says:

      But is this an excuse to treat people like they’re less? I guess becoming poor and having to work all day would be a great therapy for these people.

  45. Jenny says:

    Let’s be a bit more realistic. The production company is paid by Ariana’s record company for filming the TV-special, so they are supposed to deliver it according to her wishes. That has nothing to do with diva behaviour but with normal customer requirements. Not different from when I ask a photographer to shoot my wedding pictures according to my wishes.

    I think the only one who has a serious problem is the production company, because Hollywood is a small village and everyone now know they are gossipping to tabloids about their clients.

  46. Producer001 says:

    I worked on two Ariana related shows this year. . The first time was for an awards show and she drove the producer in charge of her performance crazy… then I worked with her directly on a project that was about her and her song and she refused to sing her song, wanted the top of her hair chopped off when shooting so you wouldn’t see the top of her head in the camera, she refused to do shots we needed for coverage like waving to camera or dancing (and her choreographer was there), she had problems talking a self so we could post to our twitter page because she hates her hands….it was the most difficult shoot I’ve ever been a part of.

  47. Sarah says:

    A customer of mine in pr had to work with her on set and said she was so rude, rude to fans, terrible attitude.

    Also terrible clothing

  48. Lydia says:

    She looks like something out of Toddlers and Tiaras. I’d honestly think that she was 12. She looks and acts like a preteen.

  49. Nosy says:

    Nvr mind the extensions I don’t understand just one hairstyle? That high half pony? Doesn’t her hair man tell her enough with one look?!? Even kookoo Kim tardy for party has like I dunno 1000+ wigs? (Lord! I can’t believe I’m taking up for her!) also I can’t understand celebs with bad skin. Don’t they watch their peers on proactiv commercials? I used it all thru 20′s and some of my 30′s and u stick with it, it works! And so cheap! No excuse. Don’t get all fancy just try that?

  50. St says:

    I believe it it. She is WEIRD. Like creepy weird. You know how some celebrities are like your best friends? Ariana Grande is like some weird member of the gang of schools queens. Like you now there are always few most popular girls that hangs out together and you see them in the school every day but you don’t know them and they are like living on their own planet?

    That’s who Ariana Granda is for me. She has hit songs and is popular at the moment. But she is total stranger to us. I doubt she has any interesting personality. Even stupid Paris Hilton have more personality. Ariana Grande is flat out weird creepy doll.

    As for the obsession with the left side – I think she has problem with eyes. If you look at her “straight” pictures you will see that her right eye does not match her other one. They are not symmetrical. Maybe thats why she wants to be seen as that.
