Were you under the impression that Ariana Grande has always been this super-sweet, innocent young girl? Well, so were we… until her latest comments.
The pop singer revealed that she was not always so pulled together. In fact, there was a time when she was a little creepy. So creepy that her mom started to worry about her.
The “Best Mistake” hit maker opened up about her childhood in the latest issue of Billboard magazine, saying, “I’m literally the most sardonic person you’ve ever met.
“I always wanted to have skeleton face paint on or be wearing a Freddy Krueger mask, and I would carry a hockey stick around. I was like a mini-Helena Bonham Carter,” she told the mag. “For my 5th birthday party we had a Jaws theme and all my friends left crying. I mean, I still am that way. But when I was little it was more concerning. There was a stage, when I was 3 or 4, where my mom thought I might grow up to be a serial killer.”
Speechless? We are too. We can’t imagine Grande as anything other than a fresh-faced teen with a killer voice.
However, it was not just her childhood that Grande opened up about during her interview — she also spoke about her religion. She practices Kabbalah.
“[I] started practicing my own things when I was around 12 years old,” she revealed. “As a fellow Kabbalist, I know how hard it is to exercise those tools in your everyday life. Especially in a world where everything is so egocentric and all you do is talk about yourself and promote yourself.”
One thing is certain: She’s come a long way from the creepy little girl she says she used to be in her childhood, and we look forward to seeing how Grande continues to evolve over the years.
