Ariana Grande Praises Beyonce And Speaks Out On Bullies In ‘Seventeen’

Published: Friday 28th Jun 2013 by David

Ariana Grande burns bright on the latest edition ‘Seventeen’, rocking the mag for a tell all piece centered around her brand new single ‘The Way‘.

Celebrating the song’s success with the teen publication, Ariana’s time with them also saw her open up on the difficulties she faced, when confronted with a fellow actor who bullied her throughout their time together.

Full story below…

On her debut album:

“I’m a big perfectionist! I’m trying to channel super-confident women like Alicia Keys, Mariah Carey and Beyonce, because I realized that if you want something, you really have to go for it, just like they do.”

Then, when quizzed on her time on Nickelodeon’s hit show Victorious, she shared the following:

“I worked with someone who told me they’d never like me. But for some reason, I just felt like I needed her approval. So I stared changing myself to please her. It made me stop being social and friendly. I was so unhappy.”

Upon the publication of this quote, fans of the Pop sensation eyed ‘Victorious’ star Victoria Justice as Ariana‘s unnamed bully, months after the girls engaged in a digital war of words over the show’s demise, here.

However, as to clear up the brewing drama, Ariana took her personal Tumblr page to clear Justice’s name, explaining:

  2. Hadley June 28, 2013

    Yes Ariana, you have the right idea darling.

  3. Lovebird June 28, 2013

    LMAO she barely praised Beyonce, she praised Mariah Carey and Alicia Keys, you, the super confident women who can actually write a song from start to finish.

    Why praise Beyonce, it’s not like the b**** can read anyway.

    • XXX June 28, 2013

      She praised all three of them.

      • Lovebird June 28, 2013

        She must have done that under duress. Who would praise a b**** who can barely read and write and cannot write a full song from start to finish like Alicia Keys and Mariah.

      • XXX June 28, 2013

        People always praise Beyonce as someone they look up to doll. Are you under a rock? The common denominator wins and you loose.

      • Lovebird June 28, 2013

        They obviously praise her under duress. Don’t forget the b**** has got money and mostly buys herself this sort of PR.

      • XXX June 28, 2013

        LOOOL you’re so pressed. So you think the dozens of artists that have happily quoted Beyonce are under duress? LMAO pressed to the fullest. Or maybe, just maybe, their opinion differs from yours! *GASPS*

    • Music June 28, 2013

      She’s praises Beyonce cuz she’s a great performer. Duh. Someone didn’t have their coffee this morning mr grumpy pants.

    • CIARA’S NEW ALBUM June 28, 2013

      WHAT THE F*** HAVE YOU BEEN SMOKING? BATH SALTS. I DON’T CARE IF BEYONCE CAN READ OR WRITE. I DON’T CARE IF SHE’S HOOKED ON PHONICS. IT DOESN’T HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH HER BEING A GOOD OVERALL PERFORMER. HELL, FANTASIA ADMITTED TO HARDLY BEING ABLE TO READ. AND SHE’S STILL ONE OF THE BEST VOCALIST IN THE INDUSTRY. YOUR’RE JUST MAD BECAUSE SHE DIDN”T PRAISE CIARA-MAN’S NO SINGING ASS. SIT YOUR BODY BUILDING PARTY LOVING ASS DOWN.

  4. XXX June 28, 2013

    Who doesn’t quote BEYONCE as someone who inspires them anyway?

    • Music June 28, 2013

      I know right?

  5. TaylorSwift1Stan June 28, 2013

    She’s my new fave. But girl you don’t have to praise f****** she’s pressed and angry that she’s not the vocal god anymore

    • Lovebird June 28, 2013

      First of all, as a Taylor Swift fan, you’re in no position to be talking about vocals when your favs vocal ability sounds worst than a Wolf’s howling yuck.

      Secondly, Marian is still the vocal queen, her vocal gymnastics are at a level Taylor W**** wishes she could be at.

      Instead of talking about Mariah, you should be gifting your fav a pack of condoms a day for the multiple guys she f**** to write a cheesy as teen song about.

      Only basic ass b****** who deserve no opinion Stan for Taylor Swift.

      • CIARA’S NEW ALBUM June 28, 2013

        WELL ISN’T THAT THE POT CALLING THE KETTLE BLACK LMFAO? YOU HAVE NO MERIT. A TAYLOR SWIFT FAN HAS MORE CREDIBILITY THAN YOU. TRICK, YOU STAN FOR CIARA-MAN ONE OF THE WEAKEST VOCALIST IN THE GAME. YOU ARE THE EPITOME OF A BASIC B****. CIARA -MAN IS AN EMBARRASSMENT TO FLOPS ALL OVER THE NATION. RIH EVEN SHITS THAT B**** VOCALLY. SIT DOWN!

    • Music June 28, 2013

      Whether or not MC voice is weaker and deteriorated she has many years of experience under her belt and has inspired many vocalists. So get ur head out ur ass.

    • CIARA’S NEW ALBUM June 28, 2013

      I DON’T AGREE WITH WHAT YOU SAID ABOUT MARIAH. SHE’S ONE OF THE BEST VOCALIST OF ALL TIME. I JUST HAD TO CALL OUT LOVEBIRD’S HYPOCRITICAL ASS FOR JUDGING VOCALS WHEN HE STANS FOR CIARA-MAN.

  6. TaylorSwift1Stan June 28, 2013

    Who praises the bitter Mooriah??!! She’s dumb for praising her.

  7. TaylorSwift1Stan June 28, 2013

    This Girl been snatching Mariahs weave. She left her bald
    I’m sorry Lambs but your fave is done.

    • steph June 28, 2013

      B****, I know you aint talking with that SHANIA TWAIN wannabe you stan for.

  8. Sass June 28, 2013

    Ah whats new *GOOGLES LIST OF ARTISTS INFLUENCED BY BEYONCE KNOWLES*

  9. truthbetold June 28, 2013

    I wonder how much Beyoncé paid this lil girl to say that?

    • Music June 28, 2013

      U mad? Like they say: paid and laid (hair)

  10. ETONE June 28, 2013

    Rihanna has officially surpassed Justin Bieber as the most-viewed artist on You Tube. The singer’s official VEVO page and its 77 videos have a combined total of 3.784 billion views, surpassing Justin Bieber’s official VEVO page which houses 79 videos and has a combined total of 3.798 billion views.

    Rihanna thanked her fans via Instagram, saying “Navy we did it again… most viewed EVER

    • Lovebird June 28, 2013

      You do know Rihanna BUYS those views right. I mean who would navigate their mouse on YouTube to see a non singing non dancing b****.

      Those views are as genuine as Beyonce’s “sold out” tour when we all know the b**** scalped her own tickets.

      • Krissy June 28, 2013

        Beyonces tour is sold out. There are no empty seats. Unlike Rihanna.

    • Krissy June 28, 2013

      Why are you boasting about youtube views

      • FAF June 28, 2013

        @Krissy bc navi is stupid. . . Miley Cyrus had over 60M views in 2 weeks for “We Won’t Stop” half the bar is red w/ dislikes… People watch videos to discuss & troll, it doesn’t mean they like the song

  11. Iz (Queen Adele) June 28, 2013

    Not surprised. Beyonce influences a lot of people already. Adele adores her. But she also praised Mariah and Alicia put that in the title.

  12. Lovebird June 28, 2013

    And Taylor Swift is the only person I know who gets charged at the free STD clinic due to the numerous visits she makes.

    • Bey Fan June 28, 2013

      you a lunatic…but this made me laugh

  13. TaylorSwift1Stan June 28, 2013

    LMAO… You stan for Rihanna & Ciara you also don’t have any opinion babe. Mariah Carey WAS the Vocal Queen years back but she isn’t anymore. How ironic when you fave is showing her v***** to every person, I think she is the one who needs condoms by the way.
    Anyways Taylor is above Rihanna,Ciara & Mariah when they can sell 1million + copies first week maybe we can talk b****.
    I can’t at this retarded, demented, s*** telling me not to talk about vocals while her faves too can’t sing to save they existence. Another thing Taylor Swift is a country Singer she doesn’t need to scream her voice is perfect and she’s slaying lessors. When maybe your faves can atleast Book American Stadiums then we can speak b****!!

    • Lovebird June 28, 2013

      Exactly, Rihanna is also a non singing b**** and Ciara at least HAS GOT TALENT. What does Taylor Swift have besides an infestation of STDs. That b**** cannot sing, cannot dance, cannot writing anythingf of substance besides those childish teenager nursery rhymes.

      Seriously what can that Taylor b**** do musically.

      Have a seat honey, the shear fact that you Stan for Taylor Swift makes your opinion on music and vocals redundant. You’re simply white noise, now get it moving.

  14. TaylorSwift1Stan June 28, 2013

    LMAO a Rihanna stan talking about STD’s how ironic 🙂

    • Navy Sailor June 28, 2013

      Lovebird has been dishonorably discharged from the Navy.

      • CIARA’S NEW ALBUM June 28, 2013

        GOOD THROW HIS ASS OFF THE SHIP! I CAN’T BELIEVE HE HAD THE AUDACITY TO SHADE RIH. HIS CIARA-MAN LOVING ASS HAS SOME NERVE.

    • RIHKING June 28, 2013

    • Navy Sailor June 28, 2013

      • HOWYOULIKEIT June 28, 2013

        we are talking about music, talent and inspiration. WHO has rihanna inspired? WHO? I need one name

      • Navy Sailor June 28, 2013

        Hmmm. Ariana loves Rihanna. Miley. Demi. Kat Dahlia(sp?), Iggy. I don’t know of any other young, up and coming singers, but I’m sure she has inspired pleeeeeeeeenty more young talent. 🙂

    • Music June 28, 2013

      Yeah Rihanna inspires ppl but we all know its second to Beyonce. And most ppl r inspired by her image. Not much else.

      • FAF June 28, 2013

        Rihanna inspires PERSONALITIES, not music

  17. TaylorSwift1Stan June 28, 2013

    Kiss my ass and my a*** @lovebird you psychotic weirdo

  18. Navy Sailor June 28, 2013

  19. TaylorSwift1Stan June 28, 2013

  20. SLAYRIAH CAREY (JLO? WHO IS THAT?) June 28, 2013

    • SLAYRIAH CAREY (JLO? WHO IS THAT?) June 28, 2013

      Whitney & Christina ( eww ) as well.

      • Daydreamin June 28, 2013

        Why don’t you like Christina?

    • Krissy June 28, 2013

      Its not a competition. She still looks up to Beyonce.

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (JLO? WHO IS THAT?) June 28, 2013

        Who said it was a competition?

      • Krissy June 28, 2013

  23. JARED (WHITE DUDE) June 28, 2013

    She’s cute.

    @Slayriah…

    I presume that when you put “Whitney” and “Ew” in the same sentence, you are being sarcastic… CORRECT?

    *Kisses*

    • SLAYRIAH CAREY (JLO? WHO IS THAT?) June 28, 2013

      I was saying that she is also influenced by Whitney and Christina. The eww was obviously for Christina. Lmao.

      • JARED (WHITE DUDE) June 28, 2013

        OH…………..

        L*M*F*A*O.

        I was going to say…

  24. MC June 28, 2013

    So sad about the bullying part.

  25. YESSSSS June 28, 2013

    Lets be honest she is bigger then any of her Victorious cast mates will ever be and she was the main reason that show was relevant also her single went platinum!!!

  26. . : : h 2 o : : . June 28, 2013

    Welcome to the BeyHive Ariana 😀

  27. Savannah June 28, 2013

    Ariana is such a cutie.

  28. Suicide Blonde June 28, 2013

    Poor girl, the Hive will use her as another member of the club Everybody even God praises Beyonce….

  29. I June 28, 2013

    why is everybody arguing about the influences so hard cant we wait to see if this album slays or not. Which i know it will b/c ariana is working with amazing writers and producers and we know that voice is the truth and she will be amazing

  30. Daydreamin June 28, 2013

    Im glad she cleared the air on who bullied her cause Arianators and Victorians were going at it on Twitter. Its easy to believe because Victoria just seems like the type of girl who enjoys the spotlight and envy’s anyone who gets more shine. Its sad that someone on Broadway bullied her though. I can’t imagine why. Probably jealous.
