Life and career
Early life and career beginnings
Ariana Grande-Butera was born in Boca Raton, Florida. She is
the daughter of Joan Grande, the chief executive officer of
Hose-McCann Communications, a telephone and alarm system
company, and Edward Butera, a graphic design firm owner in
Boca Raton. Grande is of Italian descent, and her name was
inspired by Princess Oriana from Felix the Cat: The Movie. She has
an older half-brother, Frankie Grande, an entertainer and
producer, and she has a close relationship with her maternal
grandmother, Marjorie Grande. Grande's family moved from New York
to Florida when her mother was pregnant with her, and her parents
separated when she was around 8 or 9 years old.
As a child, Grande performed with the
Fort Lauderdale Children's
Theater, playing her first role as the title character in Annie.
She also performed in the musicals The Wizard of Oz and Beauty and the
Beast. At the age of 8, she performed at a karaoke lounge on a
cruise ship and with various orchestras such as South Florida's
Philharmonic, Florida Sunshine Pops and Symphonic Orchestras, and she
made her first national television appearance singing "The
Star-Spangled Banner" for the Florida Panthers. She attended Pine
Crest School and North Broward Preparatory School.
By age 13, she became serious about pursuing a music career, though
she still concentrated on theater. When she first arrived in Los
Angeles to meet with her managers, she expressed a desire to record an
R&B album: "I was like, 'I want to make an R&B album,' They
were like 'Um, that's a helluva goal! Who is going to buy a
14-year-old's R&B album?!'" In 2008, Grande was cast in the
supporting role of cheerleader Charlotte in the musical 13 on
Broadway, for which she won a National Youth Theatre Association
Award. When she joined the musical, Grande left North Broward
Preparatory School, but continued to be enrolled; the school sent
materials to her so she could study with tutors. She also sang
various times at the New York City jazz club Birdland.
Breakthrough on Nickelodeon
Grande in July 2011
Grande was cast in the
Nickelodeon television show
with 13 co-star
Elizabeth Gillies in 2009. In this sitcom, set in
a performing arts high school, Grande played the "adorably dimwitted"
Cat Valentine. 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. 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." 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". The
second season premiered in April 2011 to 6.2 million viewers, becoming
the highest rated episode of Victorious. 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. To strengthen her vocal range, she began working with vocal
coach Eric Vetro. 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. 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. 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. She later disowned
the track for its bubblegum pop sound, saying that she had no interest
in recording music of that genre. The song was later certified
gold by the RIAA. 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.
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)". After three seasons, Victorious
was not renewed. The finale aired in February 2013. The third and
Victorious 3.0, was released on November
6, 2012, featuring Grande duetting with
Victoria Justice in the song
"L.A. Boyz". A music video of the song followed. In December
2012, Grande collaborated on the single version of "Popular Song", a
duet with British singer and songwriter Mika. 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. Grande played Amanda Benson in
Swindle, a 2013
Nickelodeon film adaptation of the children's book of
the same name.
Nickelodeon created Sam & Cat, an iCarly and Victorious
Jennette McCurdy and Grande. 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. The pilot aired on June 8,
2013, and the show was immediately picked up by the network. The
Nickelodeon doubled Sam & Cat's original
20-episode order for season one, making it a 40-episode season.
Despite its success in the ratings, the series was canceled after 36
episodes. The final episode aired on July 17, 2014.

Grande recorded her first studio album Yours Truly, originally titled
Daydreamin', over a three-year period. It was released on August 30,
2013. She is credited as a songwriter on several tracks of the
album. In September 2013, it debuted at No. 1 on the US Billboard
200 albums chart, with 138,000 copies sold in its first week, making
Grande the first female artist since
Kesha to have her first album

overall. Yours Truly also debuted in the top 10 in several
other countries, including Australia, the UK, Ireland, and
the Netherlands. By April 2014, the album had sold over 500,000

The lead single "The Way", featuring
Pittsburgh rapper Mac Miller,
debuted at No. 10 on the US Billboard Hot 100, eventually peaking
at No. 9 for two weeks, and spent 26 weeks on the Hot 100.
Grande was later sued by Minder Music for copying the line "What we
gotta do right here is go back, back in time" from the 1972 song
"Troglodyte (Cave Man)" by The Jimmy Castor Bunch. Following the
release of the album, Billboard magazine ranked Grande at No. 4 on
their list of "Music's Hottest Minors 2013", an annual ranking of the
most popular musicians under the age of 21. The second single,
"Baby I", debuted at No. 21 on the US

Believe Tour for
three shows and kicked off her own headlining mini-tour, The Listening
Sessions. At the 2013 American Music Awards, she won the award
for New Artist of the Year. She released a four-song Christmas
EP, Christmas Kisses in December 2013. Christmas Kisses received
critical praise for its "R&B spin" on the Christmas classics.
Grande received the Breakthrough Artist of the Year award from the
Music Business Association, recognizing her achievements throughout
2013, including her No. 1 debut on the
Billboard 200 and her top 10
single on the Hot 100.
By January 2014, Grande had begun recording her second studio album,
Ryan Tedder and record producers Benny Blanco
and Max Martin. Grande is credited as a songwriter on several
tracks of the album. The same month, she earned the Favorite
Breakout Artist award at the People's Choice Awards 2014. In March
2014, Grande sang at the

featuring German musician and producer Zedd, peaked at No. 4 on
Billboard Hot 100
Billboard Hot 100 and No. 1 on the Hot Dance/Electronic Songs.
The futuristic video has been viewed more than 900 million times.
She performed the song as the opening of the 2014 MTV Video Music
Awards, and won
Best Pop Video

Nicki Minaj provided
guest vocals on "Bang Bang", the lead single from Jessie J's album

third song in the Hot 100's top 10 the same week ("Problem", "Break
Free" and "Bang Bang"), and went to No.1 in the UK. She joined Adele
as the only female artist with three top 10 hits simultaneously as a
lead artist. The music video for "Bang Bang" has been viewed more
than one billion times on YouTube. My Everything spent 88 weeks on
the Billboard 200.
Rolling Stone magazine wrote, "My Everything is
where the 21-year-old
Nickelodeon starlet grows up. It's a confident,
intelligent, brazen pop statement, mixing bubblegum diva vocals with
EDM break beats". Billboard's review noted that My Everything is
not kid-friendly, like Grande's earlier efforts:
[S]he has pulled more sounds into her repertoire while keeping her
biggest weapon, a remarkable vocal range, as a steady foundation. ...
My Everything is a less cohesive project than Yours Truly, although
its best moments eclipse the highs of Grande's 2013 debut. The singles
"Problem" and "Break Free" remain dizzying dance tunes, and
back-to-back solo songs "One Last Time" and "Why Try" possess the
types of flawless melodies that are typically reserved for the world's
biggest pop divas. The back half of the album's many collaborations
Grande on tour, 2015
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. Three days later, the third single from My Everything,
"Love Me Harder", featuring Canadian recording artist The Weeknd,

Hot 100 in 2014, Grande had the most top 10 singles of any artist
that year. She later released a fifth single from My Everything,
"One Last Time", which peaked at No. 13 on the Billboard Hot 100. By
April 2015, the album had sold over 600,000 copies in the US and
is certified double platinum by the RIAA.
In early 2015, Grande embarked on The Honeymoon Tour, with shows in
North America, Europe, Asia and South America. Following the
tour's early success, more dates were added, and the tour
concluded in October 2015 after a total of nearly 90 dates. It
earned approximately $40 million and sold over 800,000 tickets.
Reviews of the tour performances generally praised Grande's vocals and
ability to convey emotion in the songs but found the concerts to be
over-produced: "[S]ome judicious editing would've elevated the evening
from surprising to satisfying and possibly even shockingly good. 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."
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." Also in 2015, Grande guest-starred on
several episodes of the Fox comedy-horror TV series Scream Queens as
Chanel#2. Grande filmed an episode for the Fox TV reality
series Knock Knock Live, but the show was cancelled before her episode

really talented". Grande won an online voting poll on

the soundtrack of the 2016 film Sing. She also participated in

Grande began her
Dangerous Woman Tour
Dangerous Woman Tour in February 2017 in North
America and then Europe. Reviewing the concert for Las Vegas
Weekly, Ian Caramanzana wrote: "Grande’s burly, soulful vibrato and
wide range remain the star of her show, and she's at her best when
it's just her, a microphone and her band – especially when she
performs ... ballads."
Jon Pareles of
The New York Times
The New York Times called
the concert "a show of confidence, prowess and aplomb. ... Her agile
soprano was strong and unconcealed in every song." After
Grande’s concert at the
Manchester Arena in Manchester, England, on
May 22, a suicide bomber detonated an explosive in the foyer of the
arena, causing 23 fatalities and more than 500 injuries. Grande

They had grossed over $150 million in global sales by 2017.
Musical style and influences
Mariah Carey, one of Grande's vocal influences
Grande's music is generally pop and R&B, although it has elements
of funk, dance and hip hop. Grande said she grew up mainly
listening to urban pop and 90s music. Grande's debut album, Yours
Truly was complimented for recreating the R&B "vibe and feel of
the 90s" with the help of songwriter and producer Babyface. The
follow-up, My Everything, has been described as an evolution from her
first album with a new sound exploring EDM and electropop genres.
Los Angeles Times review of her third album, Dangerous Woman,
commented that it is "impressive how fully she inhabits the emotional
environment of each song here, even when one directly contradicts
another. ... She's ... deft [at] adapting to different styles".
Grande has cited
Whitney Houston and
Mariah Carey as her major vocal
influences, saying: "I love Mariah Carey. She is literally my favorite
human being on the planet. And of course Whitney [Houston] as well. As
far as vocal influences go, Whitney and Mariah pretty much cover
it." She describes
Gloria Estefan as the person who inspired
her to pursue a career in the music industry, after Estefan
complimented a performance she saw Grande give on a cruise ship when
she was eight years old. She has also cited Fergie,
Destiny's Child, Beyoncé,
India.Arie and Brandy as influences or
inspirations. She has praised Imogen Heap's "intricate" song
structure and cited
Judy Garland as being a childhood influence,
admiring Garland's ability to tell "a story when she sings".
Grande has a four octave soprano vocal range, and the whistle
register. With the release of Yours Truly, Grande was deemed the
"mini Mariah Carey" and the "new Mariah Carey" by some critics because
of her wide vocal range, sound and musical material.
Speaking about the comparisons, Julianne Escobedo Shepherd of
Billboard wrote that both Carey and Grande have "the talent to let
their vocals do the talking ... that's not where the similarities end.
... Grande is subverting it with cute, comfortable, and on-trend
dresses with a feminine slant." Grande responded to the
comparisons, "[I]t's a huge compliment, but when you hear my entire
album, you'll see that Mariah's sound is much different than
mine." Steven J. Horowitz of Billboard wrote in 2014, "With her
sophomore album, the "Problem" singer no longer resembles [Carey] –
and that's okay."
Grande's vocals have gained praise from Kelly Clarkson,
Lady Gaga and
Katy Perry said that Grande delivers "the best
female vocal in pop music today. She has literally ... the best voice
live." Mark Savage commented in
BBC News: "
Ariana Grande is one
of pop's most intriguing and gifted singers. A magnetic performer with
unrivalled vocal control". In 2016, composer and playwright Jason
Robert Brown addressed Grande in Time magazine:
[N]o matter how much you are underestimated ... you are going to open
your mouth and that unbelievable sound is going to come out. That
extraordinary, versatile, limitless instrument that allows you to shut
down every objection and every obstacle. That voice – powered by
nothing but your remarkable empathy, your ravenous intelligence, your
cool discipline and your voracious ambition.
Grande on the Dangerous Woman Tour, 2017
Grande's modest look early in her career was described as "age
appropriate", compared with other pop stars who grew up in the public
eye. Jim Farber of
New York Daily News
New York Daily News wrote in 2014 that Grande
received less attention "for how little she wears or how graphically
she moves than for how she sings." That year, she began to wear
short skirts and crop tops with knee-high boots in performances and on
red carpets. After years of dyeing her hair red to play Cat
Valentine, Grande wore extensions while her natural hair grew
out. Anne T. Donahue of
MTV News called Grande "aesthetically
relevant" and argued that her bold and whimsical fashion choices
should receive more critical attention.
Grande's ponytail is ... as famous as her voice and ... a massive
component of the pop culture zeitgeist. ... [W]hile pulling off a high
ponytail takes courage and commitment, so does her recent [fashion]
ode to Marilyn Monroe at the  MTV Movie Awards and her homage to
crime-fighting heroes in her 'Dangerous Woman' cover art. ... [S]he's
boasted floor-length red gowns, chokers, crop tops, and oversize
jackets [and] everything from theater garb (see: flapper dresses) to
Mickey Mouse ears to A-line minis. Which, in an industry rich in
self-branding, is a beautiful rarity ... deft whimsy. ... [D]ismissing
Ariana Grande as a fashion force is an easy and lazy way of
categorizing her. ... [F]ashion is best when it's an extension of self
and a wearable form of expression. (Plus, we know that when we see
someone take risks, they understand fashion on an intrinsic
Although Grande drew criticism for allegedly impolite interactions
with reporters and fans in 2014, she dismissed these reports as
"weird, inaccurate depictions". After considering the incidents
most frequently mentioned in the press and the available evidence,
PopSugar concluded that the incidents were "just normal star behavior"
and "not the most ideal situation, but ... not exactly the sign of a
Rolling Stone wrote: "Some may cry 'diva', but it's also
Grande just taking a stand to not allow others to control her
image." In July 2015, Grande was seen on surveillance video in a
doughnut shop licking doughnuts that were on display and saying "I
hate Americans. I hate America. This is disgusting", referring to
a tray of doughnuts. She apologized, writing that she is "extremely
proud to be an American" and that her comments related to American
obesity. She later released a video apology for "behaving
poorly". The incident was parodied by The Muppets and
featured in Miley Cyrus'
Saturday Night Live
Saturday Night Live cover of "My Way", about
the regrets of the summer of 2015. Grande mocked the incident
Saturday Night Live
Saturday Night Live in 2016, saying "A lot of kid stars end
up doing drugs, or in jail, or pregnant, or get caught looking at a
doughnut they didn't pay for."
Journalists and celebrities, such as Taylor Swift,
Rita Ora and Selena
Gomez, commented favorably on Grande's "empowering" 2015 essay posted
on Twitter decrying the double standard and misogyny in the focus of
the press on female musicians' relationships and sex lives, instead of
"their value as an individual". Grande noted that she has
"more to talk about" concerning her music and accomplishments, rather
than her romantic relationships. In 2016, E! writer Kendall
Fisher called her "a feminist hero" in an essay examining Grande's
feminist statements. The same year, Grande was listed among
Time's 100 most influential people in the world. She received
praise for her "grace and strength" in organizing, hosting and
performing at the
One Love Manchester
One Love Manchester benefit concert.
Madeline Roth of
MTV News wrote that the performance "bolstered
courage among an audience that desperately needed it. ... Returning to
the stage was a true act of bravery and resilience". New York
Magazine's Vulture section ranked the event as the No. 1 concert of
2017. Also in 2017, Mitchell Harrison of Billboard magazine
called Grande a "gay icon" for her LGBT-friendly lyrics, performances
and "support for the LGBTQ community". The same year, Celia
Almeida wrote for Miami New Times:
[O]f all of pop music's biggest stars of the past 20 years, Ariana
Grande has made the most convincing and seamless transition from
ingénue to independent female artist. ... She saves the celebration
of the joys of liberated sexual exploration for her lyrics. ... [S]he
has traversed into mainstream-pop adulthood relatively unscathed. ...
Grande [wrote in 2016]: "Expressing sexuality in art is not an
invitation for disrespect ... just like wearing a short skirt is not
asking for assault."
