Ariana Grande fires back at diva demand rumors
This isn't the first time as of late that we've been hearing Ariana Grande might have a bit of a 'tude.
First, fans accused her of snubbing them during a meet and greet gone wrong. Now, according to Perez Hilton, a photographer named Chris Pavlich is saying Grande got mad over her outfit during their photo shoot in Australia and stormed off the set after only a few shots.
The singer apparently wanted Pavlich to delete the photos she didn't approve of and, when he refused, she canceled the shoot altogether.
Aside from her alleged tantrum during the shoot because she didn't like the top she was wearing, she also had some specific instructions for the photographer: He wasn't allowed to use natural light and he could only shoot her from the left side of her face.
Grande says these allegations are entirely off-base. She told 96.One, "It was just a photographer or something who got mad at me because I left to change my outfit mid-photo shoot because I didn't like my top. I was like, 'Oh, I'll be right back!' and then I came back and he had left.' I was like, 'Oh, s***!' And then he came out and said all these ridiculous untrue things about me. I was like, 'That's not real. That's nonsense!'"
But the photographer isn't the only one saying the singer had some diva demands. Australian media was invited to interview the singer and was given a list of topics that were off-limits for questions, according to news.com.au. The restrictions included no questions allowed about her collaboration with Justin Bieber, her past relationships or Mariah Carey, no questions about her grandfather who recently passed away and no questions about Sam & Cat or Jennette McCurdy.
We definitely understand that some private life topics should be left off the table, but requests should be handled respectfully for all parties involved.
Grande says they were. "My fans know who I am, my family knows who I am, my friends know who I am. And that's all that matters... no matter what you do, no matter what your profession is, no matter how old you are, everybody deals with haters."
