Ariana Grande may be a rising young pop star, but don’t put her in the same category as Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber – Ariana says she’s more about old fashioned romance and love rather than drinking and tweaking.
“My favorite era was the 50s and 60s – the Chiffons, the Shangri-Las. My grandparents played it and I fell in love with it, because it was more about romance and love, and less about getting drunk and going home with someone you don’t know,” the ‘Baby I’ singer told UK’s The Guardian in a recent interview.
The 20-year-old admits to a recent career blunder – releasing a slightly risque photo of herself before her recent album came out. The shot – that showed her kneeling in stockings – got a lot of negative feedback from her fans and was withdrawn.
“It was never the cover art,” Ariana insists of the photo, that does not appear anywhere on her album artwork. “It was a more mature shot, but I’m not comfortable enough to be forwardly sexual.”
