New York- The 21-year-old singer has taken the charts by storm with collaborations with the likes of Iggy Azalea, Jessie J and Nicki Minaj. Her life has changed so much over the past few years, which means she often gets caught up in surreal experiences. “Every day is different and crazy!” she laughed to German magazine Bravo.

Ariana has been plagued by negative gossip recently that suggests she’s turning into diva, making demands such as only being photographed from one side. Luckily her loyal supporters don’t take any notice. “My followers know who I am: I’m the same girl who loves the theatre, animals and her family more than anything,” she smiled.

“I will always be little Ariana from Boca Raton [Florida]!”

It might seem amazing that a girl from humble beginnings has made it so far. But the pretty brunette has her supportive family to thank.

“It’s all down to my brother Frankie, who’s ten years older than me, and who I looked up to as a child,” she explained.

“I was seven when he started appearing in musicals - and suddenly I thought musicals were the best thing ever!”
