Ariana Grande may look sweet, but don’t be fooled. This pop princess has some spice. In a recent interview with Complex magazine, Ariana stuck up for two fellow big ticket acts in modern music: Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber.
“She’s an adult,” Ariana says of her fellow 20-year-old. “She can do whatever the hell she wants, honestly. And she looks amazing. Like, she looks gorgeous. She looks stunning. And she’s having so much fun. If her choices aren’t for you, don’t look at it. Like, move on.”
As for Bieber, “He can do whatever he wants! He’s doing the same thing as every other boy in the world right now. He’s just under a microscope, and he’s being scrutinized by people who don’t know him. I know him, and he’s a good person. He really is. He’s a nice person.”
Both Miley and Justin have made headlines of late for their respective antics including Miley’s lighting up a joint at the MTV Europe Music Awards and Justin’s impromptu film session with a mysterious woman in a South American hotel. Ariana knows both professionally, having hinted at a future musical collaboration with Miley and straight out said the Biebs sends her flirty texts.
Not so cute is the way the world harps on Miley and Justin, Ariana says. “That’s what bothers me about people and about society,” she tells Complex. “It’s like, shut up. Like shut up!”
