She may be young, but Ariana Grande has rapidly become one of the most popular and well-loved pop artists in the entire world. Ariana began her career small on the stage and in television, but in more recent years, she has rocketed to stardom due to her stellar musical talents. She has experience in singing, acting, and dancing, and she does all of those things pretty often in her work today. Ariana was born in Boca Raton, Florida on June 26th, 1993. She is without a doubt one of the most prominent entertainers in the industry.
Ariana Grande’s Early Life and Career
Ariana Grande was someone who held a strong interest in entertainment at a very young age. When she was just a little girl, she performed in productions with the Fort Lauderdale Children’s Theater in Florida. She would perform in musicals like Annie, The Wizard of Oz, and Beauty and the Beast. She traveled with orchestra like South Florida’s Philharmonic, Florida Sunshine Pops, and Symphonic Orchestras. Growing up, Ariana attended Pine Crest School and North Broward Preparatory School. She caught her big break in 2008, when she was cast in a major role in the musical 13, which was on Broadway. Due to her stellar performance in this role, she ended up winning a National Youth Theatre Association Award. Gaining a part in the musical prompted her to leave school in order to focus on her career.
In 2009, Ariana received her mainstream breakout role by winning the part of Cat Valentine in the Nickelodeon show Victorious. Cat was a main cast member on the show, and her popularity on the program allowed Ariana to gain exposure as both an actress and as a singer. She would see herself become a teen idol during her tenure with the show, and the different covers that she uploaded on her YouTube channel caused people to think of her as a more serious musician. While she worked on Victorious, she dabbled a little bit in recording her own music, but really shied away from making music that she thought had a bubblegum pop sound. Once she left the show, she saw a lot more creative freedom in her music.
Ariana Grande’s Successful Career in Music
Grande released her debut album Yours Truly in 2013. The album spawned successful singles like “The Way”, “Baby I”, and “Right There”. Critics and casual listeners alike praised the mature, smooth R&B sound that Ariana employed in her work. Due to her pre-existing popularity, the album was able to debut on top of the Billboard 200, selling over 100,000 units in its very first week. The album was also internationally successful, being particularly popular in countries like Japan, the United Kingdom, Canada, and Australia. Her second album, My Everything would relase in August of 2014, and it was seen as being a lot more grown up than her previous album. The album spawned five singles, “Problem”, “Break Free”, “Bang Bang”, “Love Me Harder”, and “One Last Time”. Like her previous album, it debuted at the top of the Billboard 200. By this point in her career, she had established herself as a real, serious musical artist.
In May of 2015, she released her third studio album, entitled Dangerous Woman. This album continued to the trend of a more mature sound compared to her more previous role, with some people even criticizing how quickly Ariana had transitioned to a more adult image. Dangerous Woman has spawned four singles thus far, including “Dangerous Woman”, “Into You”, “Side to Side”, and most recently “Everyday”. The popular single “Focus” was originally meant to be a part of the album, but it has since become more of a stand-alone release. Ariana is currently set to embark on the Dangerous Woman Tour later this year, and given the extreme popularity of this album, I have a feeling that tickets will be hard to get a hold of.
Ariana Grande’s Personal Life
As a teen idol turned pop star, it isn’t much of a surprise that Ariana’s personal life has been subject to so much scrutiny. She has been a part of many high-profile relationships during her career. Between 2008 and 2011, she dated Graham Phillips, an actor who she met while working on 13. She has also been connected to people like Jai Brooks and Big Sean. Most recently, Ariana is said to be dating rapper Mac Miller. The two are frequent collaborators, with him appearing on one of her first singles, “The Way”.
