Ariana Grande got her big break when she was 15 years old, singing and dancing her way to fame on the Broadway stage. Since then, Ariana has been catapulted into fame, thanks to her role as Cat Valentine on the Nickelodeon sitcom, Victorious.
But even though she's busy filming her show, recording her debut album, and working with Kleenex on its "Shield Sneeze Swish" campaign, the singer/actress took some time to chat with us about her favorite artists, guilty pleasure television shows, and hopes for the upcoming years.
Ariana: Oh, my god, I'm so excited. She is going to make me start watching again... I stopped watching for a while, but now that she's on the show, I think I have to start watching again.
Ariana: Um (laughs), Madonna. She would be like, "I hate everyone..." pretty much. But no, I think she would be funny.
Ariana: Yeah, of course! I would just be scared to tell somebody I didn't like them.
Ariana: They can expect a lot of honesty. It's like a direct... you know, it's like it used to be pages from my diary, instead of keeping diary, I would write songs about what was happening in my life. So it's really personal. It's a Motown throwback and pop at the same time, so it's '50s and '60s inspiration mixed with today.
Ariana: I worked with Sky Blu from LMFAO and we did a song together. That's one of my favorites on the whole album so far. He's amazing! And I worked with 3OH!3 on a few songs and, yeah, I've been really fortunate to work with all these people.
Ariana: I would love to work with Mike Posner. He's amazing and a great writer.
Ariana: Judy Garland and my best friend, Erin. Those are my two favorite impersonations.
Ariana: My hopes for the next few years is to be doing something similar to what I have been doing these past two years. I have been really happy... I love making music and I love doing TV shows. I love it, it's really fun!
Ariana: Hard, hard, hard work! It's very hard and it doesn't come easily... and luck! You just have to be in the right place at the right time and work hard and be passionate about it. Never lose hope, you know what I mean, if you love something!
Ariana: Best piece advice I have ever received would probably be, only do what is really going to make you happy... do what makes you happy.
Ariana: Am I ever going to be in a movie? Yeah, I don't see why not. I would love to do a movie. I love singing and I love acting, so wherever I can find a place to do both of those things, I would do it! In a heartbeat.
Ariana: I love singing. I practice a lot and I sing every day, and I got really lucky.
Ariana: When I was like, 2. I know it sounds silly but when I was 2, basically.
Ariana: Yeah, of course! I would love to work with him. I think he is amazing!
Ariana: Some of my favorite things to do in my free time are spend time with my friends and family and my dog, and play video games and, um, watch old movies!
Ariana: I really hate this question... my fans really know every single thing they need to know about me but, um, let me try to think of something...
Ariana: Guilty pleasure is a chocolate milkshake and french fries!
Ariana: Thank you so much!
