It's like a direct... you know, it's like it used to be pages lifted from my diary, instead of keeping diary, I would write songs about what was happening in my life. So it's really personal. It's a Motown throwback and pop at the same time, so it's '50s and '60s inspiration mixed with today."

Thank you for loving me endlessly whether my hair is red or brown, whether my skin is normal or covered in a terrible spray tan, whether I’m wearing a pink gown or pajamas, whether I’m starring in a Freaky Forever episode from 2009 filmed on my MacBook in Boca or in a hit Nickelodeon TV show.

Early life Edit

Grande was born and raised in Boca Raton, Florida to Joan Grande and Edward Butera.[3] Grande is of Italian descent.[4][5][6] Her name was inspired by Princess Oriana from Felix the Cat and the shortened name of an Italian Car manufacturer Ferrari. She has an older half-brother, Frankie, who is a performer and producer. When she was 8 years old, she went on a cruise with her family and she sang karaoke when Gloria Estefan (a famous Latin singer) was listening to her sing. She told Grande to follow her dreams, which inspired Grande to do singing and acting.[7] Grande then did musicals at her local theater, her first being Annie, before deciding to pursue a music career at 13.

Career Edit

2009–2012: Breakthrough on Nickelodeon Edit

March 14, 2010 - ariana make a wish

Grande in March 2010.

Grande was cast in the Nickelodeon television show Victorious along with 13 co-star Elizabeth Gillies in 2009.[8] In this sitcom, set in a performing arts high school, Grande played the "adorably dimwitted" Cat Valentine.[9][8] She had to dye her hair red every other week for the role because the executive producer, Dan Schneider, did not want all the cast members to be brunettes, and the red hair was also a feature that the network felt would fit the personality of Cat. The show premiered in March 2010 to the second largest audience for a live-action series in Nickelodeon history with 5.7 million viewers.[10][11] The role helped propel Grande to teen idol status, but she was more interested in a music career, stating that acting is "fun, but music has always been first and foremost with me."[12] Her character was compared to "Brittany Murphy's performance as the hapless Tai in Clueless" (1995) and described as being "very impressionable and easily swayed" but "generally sweet".[13] In 2010, she played the role of Miriam in the musical Cuba Libre, written and produced by songwriter Desmond Child.

After the first season of Victorious wrapped, Grande wanted to focus on her music career and began working on her debut album in August 2010.[14] To strengthen her vocal range, she began working with vocal coach Eric Vetro.[15] She made her first musical appearance on the track "Give It Up" on the soundtrack Victorious: Music from the Hit TV Show in August 2011. While filming Victorious, Grande made several recordings of herself singing covers of songs by Adele, Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey, and uploaded them to YouTube.[16] A friend of Monte Lipman, CEO of Republic Records, came across one of Grande's videos. Impressed by her vocals, he sent the links to Lipman, who signed her to a recording contract.[17] She released her first single, "Put Your Hearts Up", in December 2011, which was recorded for a teen-oriented pop album that was not issued.[18] She later disowned the track for its bubblegum pop sound, saying that she had no interest in recording music of that genre.[18] The song was later certified gold by the RIAA.[19] Also in 2011, she voiced the fairy Princess Diaspro in 13 episodes of the Nickelodeon version of the Italian animated television series Winx Club, appeared in Greyson Chance's music video for a song called "Unfriend You" from his album Hold On 'til the Night, portraying Chance's ex-girlfriend, and voiced the title role in the English dub of the Spanish-language animated film Snowflake, the White Gorilla.[20][21]

On a second soundtrack for Victorious, Victorious 2.0, released on June 5, 2012, as an extended play, Grande supplied vocals for a cover of "Don't You (Forget About Me)".[22] After four seasons, Victorious was not renewed.[23] The finale aired in February 2013. The third and final Victorious soundtrack, Victorious 3.0, was released on November 6, 2012, featuring Grande duetting with Victoria Justice in the song "L.A. Boyz".[24] A music video of the song followed.[25] In December 2012, Grande collaborated on the single version of "Popular Song", a duet with British singer and songwriter Mika.[26] She also starred as Snow White in a pantomime-style musical theatre production called A Snow White Christmas, together with Charlene Tilton and Neil Patrick Harris at the Pasadena Playhouse.[27] Grande played Amanda Benson in Swindle, a 2013 Nickelodeon film adaptation of the children's book of the same name.[21][28]

Meanwhile, Nickelodeon created Sam & Cat, an iCarly and Victorious spin-off starring Jennette McCurdy and Grande.[29] Grande and McCurdy reprised their respective roles as Cat Valentine and Sam Puckett on the buddy sitcom, which paired the characters as roommates who form an after-school babysitting business.[30] The pilot aired on June 8, 2013, and the show was immediately picked up by the network.[31] The following month, Nickelodeon doubled Sam & Cat's original 20-episode order for season one, making it a 40-episode season.[32] Despite its success in the ratings, the series was canceled after 36 episodes.[33] The final episode aired on July 17, 2014.[34]

2013–2015: Yours Truly and My Everything Edit

Grande released her second studio album My Everything on August 25, 2014. It sold 169,000 copies in its first week and debuted atop the Billboard 200, becoming her second consecutive number one album in the US.[67] Its lead single "Problem" features Australian rapper Iggy Azalea and premiered at the 2014 Radio Disney Music Awards on April 27.[68][69] The song debuted at number three (eventually climbing to number two) on the Billboard Hot 100, and debuted at number one on the UK Singles Chart, becoming Grande's first number one single in the United Kingdom.[70] It made British chart history as the first song to land at No. 1 based on sales and streams.[70] The song was the highest debut ever for a collaboration of female soloists.[71] The second single, "Break Free", featuring German musician and producer Zedd,[72] peaked at number four on the Billboard Hot 100 and number one on the Hot Dance/Electronic Songs.[73] She performed the song as the opening of the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards, and won Best Pop Video for "Problem".[74] She and Nicki Minaj provided guest vocals on "Bang Bang", the lead single from Jessie J's album Sweet Talker.[75] The song reached number three in the US, making it Grande's third song in the Hot 100's top 10 the same week ("Problem", "Break Free" and "Bang Bang"), and went to number one in the UK.

It's a confident, intelligent, brazen pop statement, mixing bubblegum diva vocals with EDM break beats".[78] Billboard's review noted that My Everything is not kid-friendly, like Grande's earlier efforts, and "pulled more sounds into her repertoire while keeping her biggest weapon, a remarkable vocal range, as a steady foundation."[79]

On September 27, 2014, Grande was the musical performer on the season 40 premiere of NBC's Saturday Night Live, with Chris Pratt as the host.[80] Three days later, the third single from My Everything, "Love Me Harder", featuring Canadian recording artist The Weeknd, debuted on the Billboard Hot 100, later peaking at No. 7.[81] In November 2014, Grande was featured in Major Lazer's song "All My Love", which was released as the fourth single from the soundtrack album for the film The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1.[82] The same month, Grande released a Christmas song titled "Santa Tell Me".[83] Spending 34 consecutive weeks in the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 in 2014,[84] Grande had the most top 10 singles of any artist that year.[85] She later released a fifth single from My Everything, "One Last Time", which peaked at No. 13 on the Billboard Hot 100.

As it is, Grande is so busy piling on the spectacle she neglects to highlight the one thing – those deceptively powerful pipes – setting her apart from her contemporaries."[91]

Grande was featured on Cashmere Cat's song "Adore", which was released in March during her Honeymoon Tour; a review in USA Today said: "Grande's towering vocals have never sounded better than on this offbeat R&B track."[92] Also in 2015, Grande guest-starred on several episodes of the Fox comedy-horror TV series Scream Queens as Chanel #2.[93][94] Grande filmed an episode for the Fox TV reality series Knock Knock Live, but the show was canceled before her episode aired.[95][96]
