Ariana Grande is arguably the most talented singer we’ve seen in years. The girl can seriously belt out any tune, any day of the week like it’s nobody’s business. Although you probably already knew how talented she is, you definitely haven’t heard her most infamous interview quotes. Here’s a look at the top seven greatest interview quotes that Ariana Grande has given us.
Number Seven: Ariana Grande On Her Family’s Ties To The Mafia
When asked about her family’s mafia ties, Ariana had this to say: “We didn’t have any Mafia ties. I feel like we knew some of the Mafia but were not involved for sure. I do know somewhere down the line there were some friendships. No Mafia ties though. It wasn’t something I bragged about.” Sketchy, but apparently she really isn’t too heavily associated with the Mafia? Best to air on the side of caution though and not trifle with the pint-sized singer.
Number Six: On Her Surprisingly Nerdy Side
You wouldn’t think it by looking at her, but apparently Ariana Grande has a bit of a nerdy side. “I’m a big nerd. I love Lord of the Rings. I love Harry Potter. I love scary movies. I love dinosaurs, science, aliens, ghosts,” Grande told one reporter.
Number Five: On Her Social Media Habits
Ariana Grande has millions of followers on her various social media sites and actually controls all of them, unlike most celebs. When asked about her frequent honest and open posts, she had this to say: “Everybody’s got something to say, but I’d rather be the person who’s honest than the person who’s like, ‘Oh that’s personal, I’m not going to tell you.’ I’ve always had an open, honest relationship with my fans.”
Number Four: On Whether Or Not She’s Experienced True Love
She may be young, but Grande certainly thinks she’s experienced true love. When asked about it, she said, “I think so. Love comes in many different forms. You can love somebody and not be in love with them. They can break your heart and you can cry over it but still not be in love with them. Love is a really peculiar thing. I think as far as being in love, I’ve experienced it.”
Number Three: On Her Independent Mom
Grande was raised with one powerhouse of a Mom. When asked about her, Grande described her by saying, “My mom is a CEO and owns a company that manufactures communications equipment for the Marines and the Navy, so she’s not really the housewife type, if you get what I’m saying. She’s the most badass, independent woman you’ll ever meet—not the cookies-in-the-oven type.”
Number Two: On Drugs And Alcohol
Apparently, drinking and getting high aren’t on the top of this pop princess’s list of things to do. According to her, “Spiritual enlightenment and self-protection are more effective than drugs and alcohol, I feel.”
Number One: On Being Called A Diva
If you want to call Grande a diva, go ahead. She actually takes it as quite the compliment. She explained why when she said, “I also think a lot of people don’t know what the word ‘diva’ means. If you want to call me a diva I’ll say, ‘Um, well, cool.’ Barbra Streisand is a diva; that’s amazing. Celine Dion is a diva; thank you. But if you want to call me a b*tch, that’s not accurate. Because it’s just not in my nature.”
Ariana Grande may be little, but the pint-sized singer packs some serious punch when she sings or simply gives telling interviews. She’s not afraid to be her sassy self and we love her for it.
