The Rise of Ariana Grande

Ariana Grande has had quite the rise to fame. The “Dangerous Woman” singer started her career on Broadway! She was in the musical 13. She then got the role of Cat on the Nickelodeon show Victorious. Most people have long since forgotten about her TV acting days. Since then, she has definitely made a name for herself in Hollywood. She has worked with some of the biggest names in the music industry right now, like Nicki Minaj, The Weeknd, Big Sean, Zedd, and even Lil Wayne. Her first released single “The Way,” featured Mac Miller and reached the top ten on the billboard charts. We all knew then that the songstress was around to stay. After the release of her first album Yours Truly, critics had nothing but good things to say! Her range was compared to that of Mariah Carey’s. That comparison has stuck with Ariana throughout her career.

She has since, released another album titled My Everything. The album included singles like “Problem,” “Love Me Harder,” and “Bang Bang.” All three of these songs became instantly big. For the past two years, you can’t turn the radio on without hearing Ariana’s voice. Ariana’s biggest song “Problem,” which featured Iggy Azalea, reached number 2 on the Billboard charts.

What makes Ariana so special is her mesmerizing voice. Her voice is angelic and has so much range that she can hit the unbelievably high notes and still sound great doing a much lower note. Ariana also presents herself in a much more “friendly” way. She dresses much more moderately than a lot of the other pop stars today. Her constant wearing of cat ears have also made their mark on her appearance and is something that people think about when they hear her name.

Ariana is now working on her latest album. She has released four songs from the upcoming album, the first one being “Focus.” The song is very pop-like and instantly gets stuck in your head. She even got Jamie Foxx to work with her on the song! Next came the song “Dangerous Woman.” The song is much different than her past songs but is just as catchy. She then released a song titled “Be Alright.” In this song, Ariana really shows off her voice’s range. Her most recent release features Lil Wayne and is called “Let Me Love You.” The song is sexy and catchy and is sure to be a hit!

Big Sean & Ariana Grande Over After 8 Months

News broke this morning that IT couple Ariana Grande and Big Sean have called it off in a joint statement their reps released early today.

“They both deeply care for each other and remain close friends,” their reps stated. “We kindly ask that the media respect their wish for privacy regarding this personal matter at this time.”

According to US Magazine, insiders claim they have been broken up for a few weeks and finally decided to go public with the news. They cite conflicting schedules and tours that would keep them apart over the next year.

Here is what they posted on social media leading up to the announcement:

The couple first confirmed their relationship back in October 2014. They’ve been trending all day on twitter as fans (and haters) weigh in on the break up. Some have named Bieber as the cause of the break up, when he was seen grinding on Ariana during a performance they did together.

I think it’s much more than that, they were such a cute couple. Any relationship is hard but when you’re a celebrity it’s multiplied hundreds of times over. That’s the thing with celebrity couples, they love hard and fast but their career just drives them apart.

We wish the best for the two of them and who knows what the future holds. What were your thoughts on this relationship? Are you sad? Happy? Let us know in the comments or on Twitter using #glamorouspaper.
