🖤 Ariana Grande WWE –
Ariana Grande is an American singer, songwriter, and actress known for her expansive four-octave vocal range and whistle register. Born in Boca Raton, Florida, she began her career in the 2008 Broadway musical 13. She rose to fame for her role as Cat Valentine in the Nickelodeon television series Victorious (2010–2013) and Sam & Cat (2013–2014). She subsequently signed with Republic Records in 2011 after the label’s executives discovered YouTube videos of her covering songs. Her 1950s doo-wop-influenced pop and R&B debut album, Yours Truly (2013), topped the US Billboard 200 chart, while its lead single, “The Way”, charted in the top ten of the US Billboard Hot 100.
Grande continued the pop and R&B sound in her second and third studio albums, My Everything (2014), and Dangerous Woman (2016), with the former containing EDM and producing the UK number-one singles “Problem” and “Bang Bang”, and the latter becoming her first of three consecutive number-one albums in the UK. Her trap-infused fourth and fifth studio albums, Sweetener (2018) and Thank U, Next (2019), were both critical and commercial successes. The former won Grande a Grammy Award for Best Pop Vocal Album, while the latter was nominated for the Grammy Award for Album of the Year and set a record for the largest streaming week for a pop album. The singles “Thank U, Next”, “7 Rings”, and “Break Up with Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored” made Grande the first solo artist to hold the top three spots on the Billboard Hot 100 simultaneously, the first female to succeed herself at the top of the UK Singles Chart, and the first act to chart lead singles from each of their first five studio albums in the top ten of the Billboard Hot 100. With her 2020 collaborations “Stuck with U” and “Rain on Me”, she broke the record for the most number-one debuts on the Billboard Hot 100 and became the first artist to have their first four number-one singles debut atop the US charts.
Grande has received various accolades throughout her career, including one Grammy Award, one Brit Award, two Billboard Music Awards, three American Music Awards, nine MTV Video Music Awards, and eight Guinness World Records. Having amassed billions of streams thus far, she is the most streamed female artist on Spotify and Apple Music and is currently the most followed female on Spotify and YouTube. She has been included on Time‘s annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world and Forbes’ list of the highest-paid women in music multiple times, while Billboard has honored her as Woman of the Year (2018) and the most accomplished female artist to debut in the 2010s. Outside of music, Grande is the most followed woman on Instagram and uses her influential platform to advocate for gender, racial, and LGBT equality; and her award-winning fragrance line has grossed over $500 million globally.
Health issues and personal beliefs
Grande stated that she struggled with hypoglycemia, which she attributed to poor dietary habits. She also suffered from posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and anxiety following the Manchester Arena bombing; she nearly pulled out of her performance in the 2018 broadcast A Very Wicked Halloween due to anxiety. Grande also stated she has been in therapy for over a decade, having first seen a mental health professional shortly after her parents divorced.
Grande was raised Roman Catholic but abandoned the church during the pontificate of Benedict XVI, citing opposition to its stance on homosexuality and noting that her half-brother Frankie is gay. She has followed Kabbalah teachings since the age of twelve, along with Frankie, believing “the basis lies in the idea that if you’re kind to others, good things will happen to you.” Several of her songs, such as “Break Your Heart Right Back”, are supportive of LGBT rights.
In November 2019, Grande endorsed Senator Bernie Sanders’ second presidential bid.
Grande met actor Graham Phillips in the cast of the musical 13 in 2008 and dated him until 2011.
In October 2014, Grande confirmed that she and Big Sean were dating. In April 2015, the couple ended their relationship after eight months.
After recording “The Way” with Mac Miller in 2012, the two began dating in 2016. The two collaborated on the single “My Favorite Part”, released in September 2016, on Miller’s album The Divine Feminine (2016). The relationship ended by May 2018. On September 7, 2018, Miller died due to an accidental drug overdose; Grande expressed grief over his death on social media and called him her “dearest friend.”
In May 2018, Grande began dating actor and comedian Pete Davidson and announced their engagement in June of that year. Davidson and Grande called off their engagement and ended their relationship in October 2018.
