Why was Ariana Grande crying on the 2014 Grammys red carpet? Find out what got her upset, plus Perez Hilton slammed the singer on Twitter, with fans coming to her defense.
Aw, Ariana Grande reportedly was feeling the pressure of the 2014 Grammys red carpet--at one point she was seen crying!
A fan gave the play-by-play on Twitter, writing: "I first hand watched what happened. Ariana was happy and she went with the best confidence on the red carpet. She was doing good at first. But then the paps yelled really loud all wanting her to look at them. she can't listen to all of them at once and they kept ordering her around."
The eyewitness continued: "She made one mistake by moving left a bit too quick and when she tried to move back she tripped. Eventually she got flustered and upset."
Meanwhile, Perez Hilton slammed Ariana's hair and fashion choices for the awards show--and when fans stood by her, he fired up a rant on Twitter
Perez started with: "Ugh. The Ariana ponytail is back. Bring me a bucket I'm gonna start crying!"
He added, "I was distracted by the hair, but Ariana's dress is even worse than the hair! Poor child needs a whole new glam team ASAP!"
When he faced a backlash from her faithful followers, he tweeted: "Calm your t*ts, people! Just because I didn't like Ariana's hair, that doesn't mean I don't like HER! I do!"
However, later that night, Perez slammed Ariana even more, tweeting: "@ArianaGrande And hopefully when you release your next album you'll stop copying @MariahCarey so hard. :-)"
Well that seemed a bit uncalled for.
Ariana did respond to the hate on her style choices, tweeting: "i'll change up my style when i'm ready to, enjoyin the last of my retro phase. more important things like this musicccc, stu for the night"
