Ariana Grande. That’s it, we’re sure this amazing artist doesn’t need an introduction. She has led quite a life, so let’s take a look at her life in honour of her upcoming birthday!
Ari’s career began when she was just 15! At 15 most people are just stressing over if their crush likes them back or if their music taste is actually cool (life was much simpler back then). Ari, on the other hand, really knew what she wanted to be from a young age and so became part of the 2008 Broadway musical 13. After being in this musical, she was scouted to be in a TV show.
Cat Valentine became Ari’s new identity from 2010-2014, inclusive of the spin-off. She joined the cast of the Nickelodeon classic Victorious and played a naive yet adorable individual. This role definitely skyrocketed her fame as she was loved by EVERYONE! During her time acting, she uploaded some song covers to YouTube and from here, Republic Records took notice.
In 2011, she joined the record label and began releasing H I T S. The Way, Dangerous Woman , Problem, Bang Bang, No Tears Left To Cry, God Is A Woman, Thank U Next, 7 Rings, Break Up with Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored. We can guarantee you’ve heard every single one of these tracks, with her whistle register and amazing range - how could you not?
Her professional career has been one for the record books, but it can’t be forgotten how strong this woman is either. She has encountered many difficulties in her lifetime like the devastating event that took 22 lives at her Manchester concert and the tragedy surrounding Mac Miller. Every time though, she comes back harder than before! Resilient and talented 😍 Now she's a newly wed, we truly can’t wait to see what this icon embarks on next! And as legends say; thank you, next!!
