Ariana Grande’s not only a true powerhouse of vocals and pop/R&B performances, but also of a diva reputation with some ugly moments behind-the-scenes and on-cam. Let’s take a trip down memory lane and highlight the top four evidences to our claim:
4. Take her good side for a photoshoot or nada
I don’t know why people are making a huge fuss about her wanting to flaunt her left side on photos all the time. Perhaps for a famous celebrity, it’s a big deal to warn the camera crew not to shoot photos of her “bad” side.
A source exclaimed, “She was a total nightmare! 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.’”
Another report claimed that Ariana was “checking each frame after it was taken and asking for shots she wasn’t pleased with to be deleted.”
Come on, can you blame her for wanting to display her cute dimples?
3. Extra-large bucket of spoiled brat demands
Gossips spread after a source said having Ari around is “like the President is in town.”
Someone witnessed her get a lift from one of her staffs and said, “Her new rule is that she has to be carried—literally carried like a baby—when she doesn’t feel like walking.”
On top of that, another insider said that a parched Ari would scream, ‘WATER!’ at an assistant who followed her around with a straw and a water bottle. “At one point, the water was too warm for her liking, so she spit it out!”
Okay, first, have you looked at Ari’s heels? I can only imagine how that stuff hurts when a girl is on that footwear for so long, strutting across the stage!
Second, Ari it’s probably best if you put your perfectly capable hands into good use.
2. Fans? Who are they?
Artists owe so much to their fans, but Ari sure does have ugly moments directed at them, though.
Aside from that time when she forced fans to delete selfies they took with her, a fan took the opportunity to throw a gift at her while she was on a Christmas parade float. The ice-cold popstar just glanced at it and harshly tossed it back into the crowd.
On top of that, a shocked insider testified, “She did autographs and pics and was all smiles until she got into the elevator [of a Manhattan radio station]. And as soon as the doors shut, she said, ‘I hope they all f*cking die.’”
Woah! Someone has to remind her that without her fans, she’s basically just a talented woman (which still isn’t bad, but come on, those poor Arianators).
1. Tongues, doughnuts, and American hatred
Remember Ari’s doughnut-licking scandal with rumored-ex-beau-slash-backup-dancer Ricky Alvarez?
To be frank, most people have probably moved on from this already, but things are forever on the Internet.
On surveillance footage, she was spotted licking several display doughnuts and exclaiming, “What the f**k is that? I hate Americans. I hate America. That is disgusting.”
You know what else is disgusting? The contaminated doughnuts were later sold to oblivious customers!
Ari apologized for her erratic behavior and called herself “an advocate for healthy eating.”
Uh, Ari, in case you forgot, healthy eating also means clean, saliva-free food.
So, there goes Ariana Grande’s diva reputation moments. All these controversial gossips and antics, but you gotta admit, you still love her, don’t you?
