Ariana Grande

Singer and actress Ariana Grande first became known for her role as Cat Valentine, the girl with bright red hair, on the Nickelodeon sitcom Victorious. However, she made her debut on Broadway in the musical 13 two years earlier at the age of 15, in 2008. Ariana reprised her Victorious role in a spinoff called Sam & Cat, but after one season, the show was canceled, fueling rumors of a fued between the singer and her co-star Jennette McCurdy.

Even though she got her start as an actress, Ariana says her true passion is music. She started uploading cover videos to YouTube in 2007 and released her first single "Put Your Hearts Up" in 2011.

Soon after, she signed with manager Scooter Braun, the star-maker behind Justin Bieber. She reached mainstream success with her single "The Way" featuring Mac Miller off her debut studio album "Yours Truly" in March 2013. She followed "Yours Truly" with her sophomore album "My Everything," featuring hit songs "Problem" and "Break Free."

Ariana is known to be very social media savvy, always tweeting her fans and fansite Twitter accounts. In addition to working in television and music, she was also the voice of Snowflake The White Gorilla in the 2011 animated movie.

Ariana Grande's public boyfriends have included Jai Brooks, Nathan Sykes of The Wanted and rapper Big Sean. Naked photos of Ariana were rumored to be leaked during the 2014 iCloud celebrity nude photo hack, but Ariana claimed the faceless photos were not of her. Ariana has also been scrutinized in the media for reportedly being a diva and difficult to work with, but she has denounced many of these claims.
