Ariana Grande is a well-known American actress, singer, and songwriter. At the age of 15, she started a career in music. She gained recognition while portraying Cat Valentine in the 2010-2013 season of the Nickelodeon TV show Victorious. She played the same part in the comedy TV show Sam & Cat from 2013 to 2014.
With the help of her songs with Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber, Stuck with U, and Rain on Me- the latter of which won the Grammy for Best Pop Duo/Group Work. She shattered the record for number-one Hot 100 debuts in 2020.
A position, Ariana Grande's sixth studio R&B album, was released in 2020. The album's title track debuted at the top of the UK and the US charts.
Ariana Grande-Butera was born in Boca Raton, Florida, on June 26, 1993. She is the daughter of Joan Grande, CEO of Hose-McCann Communications, and Boca Raton-based graphic designer Edward Butera. In 1964, this company was established in Brooklyn and began manufacturing communications and safety devices. Grande, of Italian descent, claims to be an Italian American and has Sicilian and Abruzzese ancestry.
She enjoys spending time with her maternal grandmother Marjorie Grande and her older half-brother Frankie Grande, a producer and singer. Her family moved from New York to Florida before she was even born, and her parents divorced when she was perhaps 8 or 9. While her parents were holders of season tickets for the Florida Panthers in 1998, she twice unintentionally suffered minor bruises on both wrists from being hit by stray hockey pucks.
On October 9, 1998, during the initial intermission of the Panthers' inaugural regular-season game at the National Car Rental Center, she made history by becoming the first child ever to ride a Zamboni in the brand-new stadium.
This second incident was made possible by her parents' $200 winning offer at an auction. It happened in the game's opening frame. The following day, The South Florida Sun Sentinel published a photo of her riding the Zamboni. She performed "The Star-Spangled Banner" at eight on January 16, 2002, before the Panthers' home matchup against the Chicago Blackhawks.
When Grande was a little child, the Fort Lauderdale Children's Theater gave her theatrical debut as the lead in the musical Annie. She also participated in The Wizard of Oz and Beauty and the Beast. When she was eight years old, she made her stage debut.
Since then, she has sung with the South Florida Philharmonic, Florida Sunshine Pops, Symphonic Orchestras, and other concert halls. She was enrolled at Pine Crest School at the time and then transferred to North Broward Preparatory.
The actor Graham Phillips, who Ariana Grande dated from 2008 to 2011, she first met while they were both on the Broadway production of 13. She dated the rapper Big Sean from October 2014 to April 2015, and between August 2013 and December 2013, she spent six months with the English singer Nathan Sykes.
Following the release of "The Way" with Mac Miller in 2012, the two began dating in 2016. On Miller's album The Divine Feminine, released in September 2016, they co-wrote the song "My Favorite Part." Their relationship had ended by May 2018. In September of the same year, Miller accidentally overdosed on drugs, and Grande posted a social media blog about her grief, referring to him as her "dearest friend."
Pete Davidson, a comedian and actor, and Ariana Grande started dating in May 2018. The following month, they got engaged, called off their engagement and went their separate ways in October 2018.
Grande started dating Dalton Gomez, a real estate agent, in January 2020. Their romance was publicly disclosed in the music for their charity single, "Stuck with U," despite being primarily private.
On December 20, 2020, Grande and Justin Bieber confirmed their engagement after dating for 11 months. On May 15, 2021, they were married in a small ceremony at her home in Montecito, California. She wore a gown by Vera Wang that was specially crafted for the occasion. With over 25 million likes, her wedding photos quickly rose to the top of the Instagram popularity list.
Grande has acknowledged that she suffered from hypoglycemia, ascribed to unhealthful eating practices. Since 2013, she has been a vegan. After partnering with Starbucks to make a particular version of one of her favourite drinks, which was later revealed to include eggs, fans questioned in 2019 if she was still a vegan. Harley Pasternak, her nutritionist, told the publication Glamour that although Grande is a vegan, she now "feels OK about splurging and celebrating occasionally."
After the bombing at the Manchester Arena, Grande suffered from anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). She almost missed her appearance in the 2018 A Very Wicked Halloween broadcast because of the latter. Grande has also claimed to have been receiving therapy for more than ten years, beginning with a visit to a psychologist soon after her parent's divorce.
Grande was raised a Roman Catholic but abandoned the faith under Pope Benedict XVI because she disagreed with the church's view on homosexuality and because her cousin Frankie was gay. She has said that since she was 12 years old, she and Frankie have practised the teachings of the Jewish mysticism known as Kabbalah.
She claimed, "the fundamental precept is that good thing will come to you if you are kind to others." She supports LGBT rights in several songs, including "Break Your Heart Right Back." She's also been designated a supporter of a sex-positive outlook. Senator Bernie Sanders' 2nd presidential run received Grande's support in November 2019.
She joined Republic Records in 2011 after label executives watched YouTube videos of her performing songs. Her four-octave speaking voice has drawn the public's attention, and the media has extensively covered her personal life.
Yours Truly, Grande's debut album, inspired by 1950s R&B and doo-wop, peaked at number one on the US Billboard 200. The Way, the album's lead song, reached its highest position on the US Billboard Hot 100 at ten.
Her singing and humming register on the CD drew comparisons to Mariah Carey. Her subsequent studio albums, My Everything (2014) and Dangerous Woman, were released (in 2016). Then, based on her struggles, Grande released her fourth and fifth landmark albums, Sweetener (2018) and Thank U, Next (2019).
Both of which achieved notable success in the market. Sweetener won the Grammy for Best Pop Vocal Album. The year's highest-selling pop album, Thank U, Next, won awards for Album of the Year and broke a record for the biggest pop song streaming week.
The top singles on the charts Thank U, Next, 7 Rings, and Break Up with Your Girlfriend; I'm Bored all contributed to making Grande the first solo artist to hold the top three positions on the Hot 100 in the same time. She created history when she became the first woman to lead the UK Singles Chart.
