20 Things You Didn’t Know About Ariana Grande

She’s a small girl with a huge voice, and there are some things about Ariana Grande that may surprise you. She stepped into the musical world with her first album “Yours Truly” in 2013, but you might remember her from her days on “Victorious” which she starred in from 2010 to 2013. She popped into the musical world like a breath of fresh air, making everyone wonder how such a powerful voice could belong to someone her size. Her talent has been surpassed by few, but singing isn’t all that defines her.

One amazing thing about her is that she loves to give back. At the young age of ten, she co-founded the South Florida youth singing group “Kids Who Care.” The group performed at fundraising events and raised over $500,000 for charities in 2007 alone. She was also part of Seventeen Magazine’s “Delete Digital Drama” campaign. The campaign aimed to stop cyber bullying, and since Ariana has been a victim of cyber bullying herself, she was perfect to speak out on the issue. She’s also an advocate for LGBTQ rights. Her brother is openly gay and she feels very strongly against anyone who shows the LGBTQ community any discrimination.

But that doesn’t mean she’s stayed out of the negative lime light herself. Much to her dismay, she was caught on a security camera licking a donut that she hadn’t bought and didn’t intend to pay for. The donut shop made the video public, which also showed the singer saying that she hates America and Americans. She submitted an apology to her fans, but many people were left with a bad taste in their mouth. Speaking of mouth’s, she’s admitted to having a sailor mouth herself, saying she curses a lot.

She’s not without her faults, but she seems like a sweetheart. She has a huge love for animals, having five of her own dogs and announced she was vegan back in 2013. Whether you love her or could do without her, you have to admit, this girl can sing. Here are 20 quick facts about the tiny super star, Ariana Grande.
