Everything You Don't Know About Ariana Grande

Unless you live under a rock, then you have probably heard about Ariana Grande. With various chart-topping singles and musical awards under her belt, the pop star is a definite household name.

While you might be a fan who knows the answer to the question 'how tall is Ariana Grande,' (it's 5' 3" for those who don't), there is so much you need to learn! In fact, here are 9 little-known facts about the 27-year-old musical maven.

You Might Be Pronouncing Her Last Name Wrong

Like most of the world, you may be pronouncing Ariana's surname as 'Gran-day'. And, while it may sound correct, it actually isn't.

In her 2018 interview, Ariana explained that it's pronounced as 'Gran-dee'. However, she and her brother ended up pronouncing it as 'Gran-day' since it seemed fun.

Ariana Has 'Theatrical' Beginnings

Before starring as 'Cat Valentine' in the Nickelodeon series 'Victorious', Ariana dabbled with theater. She played the leading role of 'Annie' in the Fort Lauderdale Children's Theater, apart from appearing in the Broadway Musical '13'.

'Cat' is Allergic to Cats

Oh, the irony! Cat Valentine, sadly, is allergic to cats. In a 2010 tweet, she expressed her inability to resist felines - despite the allergic reaction that comes with petting them.

Her Trademark Ponytail is Due to Hair Damage

For 4 years, Ariana had to bleach her hair and dye it red for her role as Cat Valentine. Unfortunately, this damaged her hair so badly that she now has to wear ponytail extensions.

Contrary to popular beliefs, Ariana - whose natural hair color is brown - is not wearing ponytails just because she wants to. Sadly, it's to conceal her 'broken' tresses.

Ariana's a Slytherin

Just like most people, Ariana is a fan of the Harry Potter franchise. Case in point: she has the word 'Lumos' (the light spell) tattooed on her hand.

While Draco Malfoy actor Tom Felton categorizes Ariana as a 'Gryffindor', the singer's Pottermore quiz reveals the opposite. She's actually a Slytherin like him!

She's a Good Impersonator

Apart from racking up excellent musical hits, Ariana has earned a following for her spot-on interpretations.

In the 'Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon', Ariana demonstrated her vocal chops by mimicking the performances of Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera.

She's not limited to singers though, as Ariana has shown that she can sound just like actress Jennifer Lawrence.

Ariana Hated Her Debut Single

Ariana's first foray with music was in 2011 - with the release of her debut single 'Put Your Hearts Up.' While it had a very positive message, Ariana despised it - as well as the music video that came with it.

In 2014, Ariana stated that the song, which was made for kids, felt 'fake'. She even asked people to hide the video from her VEVO page. And who wouldn't? It featured the singer in a princess dress - and a hideous spray tan.

She's 100% Vegan

Just like the other celebrities before her, Ariana has turned full vegan.

Although she only started in 2013, Ariana has stayed true to the vegan way.

According to her trainer Harley Pasternak, Ariana is a devout follower of the Japanese macrobiotic diet.

She Follows the Kabbalah

While Ariana was born Catholic, she's more in tune with the Kabbalah.

In a 2014 interview, Ariana told the Telegraph that the 'connection' began with the Kabbalah Center in her hometown of Florida.

"It sort of stuck with me," she explained.

She adds that her life - which has unfolded marvelously - is a result of the tools she picked up at the Kabbalah Center.

Ariana's life might be an open book, but there's so much more that fans need to know! Hopefully, these 9 fascinating tidbits have given you a unique perspective of the artist's colorful life.
