Ariana Grande Cosmopolitan Cover Girl

ariana-grande-cosmopolitan-cover-girlAriana Grande featured in the February 2014 issue of Cosmopolitan. Ariana said her haters are ‘evil as hell.’ On being role model: ‘I think I’m an old soul. What excites younger people doesn’t excite me.. I’m kind of a boring, normal girl who likes Harry Potter and to sit in her pajamas and sing.

I never want to be the person who avoids my own fans, so I always try to stop and say hi. But it turned into a big mosh of people, and it became quite dangerous. I got sent to the police station, and they told me not to come back to that airport!

Her hotel d forbade her from going out on her balcony to wave to them: ‘I just went out anyway. I said, ‘You can’t stop me!’ That’s one thing to get in trouble for: loving your fans too much. I didn’t know that I was capable of going to so many places in so few days.

It’s really hard for me and my friend Alexa, because she’s in school and she doesn’t have the flexibility to come visit me on the road whenever she wants. But whenever she’s on break, I try to fly her in and keep her with me as long as I can. It’s funny; one time I tweeted her school in Gainesville, like, ‘I’m keeping Alexa!’ And they tweeted me back: ‘All right. Make sure she does her homework.'”

A lot of my friends are partiers, but I’ve never really clicked with that. I like Barbra Streisand, and when was the last time you saw Babs getting, like, turnt up? That’s kind of the road that I, as a lady, would like to go down.’

On Nathan Sykes first date: ‘We were going back to his hotel to watch a movie, and he had Ladurée macarons and sunflowers waiting, I love Parisian baked goods, and sunflowers are my favorite flower. He had taken the DVD player out of the bedroom and into the living room, because he said he didn’t want to take me into the bedroom on the first date.’

On making it: ‘I never really expected to be taken seriously as an artist, and it’s just been the ultimate, proudest achievement. I’ve dealt with a lot of people not knowing what to expect from me because of my age and my personality. People often mistake my kindness for weakness, and they didn’t expect much from me, because at the end of the day, I’m just a nice Italian girl from Boca.’

    Her childlike photo combined with the headlines “Lose-Your-Mind Orgasm Secrets”, and “Let’s Get Naked! Fantasy Sex – 26 Ridiculously Hot Moves”.

    It’s super creepy.

    i feel like this picture is way too photoshopped

    I feel like she still kind of belongs to Nick. Sam and Cat just started this year. I really don’t think she should be on a magazine alluding to sex. Even Dakota Fanning covered up more than her and she is pretty much a regular celebrity who didn’t get famous the same way the majoritty of these other teen stars did. Personally, I don’t think Ariana should have continued her character from Victorious on Sam and Cat if she wanted to get famous for her talent. I feel like she can be up there with the big leauges it’s just that she would have been a fresh face just fresh out of Nickolodean who wanted to be seen as an adult in the music and entertainment industry. I think she is really talented that being said she should have went about her fame another way. She was on broadway first. Aren’t there a lot of singing shows on televison aside from Glee? She also could have starred in her own young adult show. I also think she would have been a lot more likeable by alot of more people.I also think in so doing that she would be recognized for both of her talent’s as opposed to just one. She should appeal to young adults instead younger teens in my opinion

      Maybe she’s still under a contact with NICK? I feel that both Ariana & Jeanette have outgrown their roles but from what I understand the rating have NOT tanked. they were never great to begin with but with Ariana’s success, it’s barely hanging in there. Whatever, they should not renew. They are too grown up for that channel. Finito.

  • Adele

    Please direct all disapprovals and aggravations to the amateur people who are credited for this photo shoot .It’s in the magazine Cuz they don’t know what the f they are doing ha!. Ariana is a little woman so she can rock the babydoll dresses but they have to be like grown up tho. You guys know what I’m saying?. This shoot would be better for CosmoGirl. Still love Ariana though. Its still probably a shock to her what she has achieved in 2013.

  • Person

    I would have liked the picture better if she was looking straight ahead. She has a habit of looking to the side or tilting her head and I’m just like why???? It makes her uncomfortable at times.

  • Cici

    Her hair looks great!

  • Marina And My Diamonds

    There’s that awkward, innocent look she makes in almost all of her pics. She looks good here and her hair isn’t up.
