No, Ariana Grande is not your regular TV actress, but the star has had stints in the movie world before she transitioned into a singer. Since that major transition at an early age, Ariana Grande has blessed the music world with great songs and it would be arguably incomplete to mention the top ten pop singers of the 21st century without including her name. There must be something about her that even people ask search engines questions about her feet. Here is everything you need to know about Ariana Grande, the former Nickelodeon star.
Ariana Grande: Age and bio
Ariana Grande was born Ariana Grande-Butera on June 26, 1993, in Boca Raton, Florida to Joan Grande, a CEO of Hose-McCann Communications and safety equipment and Edward Butera, a graphic design firm owner in Boca Raton. The singer is of Italian descent, and seldom refers to herself as an Italian American of “half Sicilian and half Abruzzese” descent.
When she was still in her mother’s belly, the family moved from New York and settled in Florida and by the time she turned 9 years of age, her parents separated. She attended Pine Crest School and North Broward Preparatory School. Ariana has an older half-brother, Frankie Grande, who also makes a living in the show business as a producer.
She is 26 years old.
Ariana Grande: Movie and Singing Career
Ariana Grande first made her movie appearance as a child when she performed at the Fort Lauderdale Children’s Theater playing her first role as in “Annie”. This small role gave birth to her performance in the musicals “The Wizard of Oz” and “Beauty and the Beast”. Music has always been her first choice of career so she was combining both acting and singing at the same time.
When she turned 8 years old, she performed at a karaoke lounge on a cruise ship and with various orchestras. Every singing opportunity felt like she won an American Idols’ slot and she never failed to put up a strong performance.

Ariana joined the cast of Nickelodeon television show “Victorious” in 2009 alongside Elizabeth Gillies in 2009 where she played the role of Cat Valentine, the smart annoying teenager who is good friends with Tori Vega, the shows main character. This role launched Ariana Grande into the acting industry properly but not enough to make her dump her music career “acting is fun, but music has always been first and foremost with me.” The singer said. When the show ended in 2013, she reprised her role as Cat for the spin-off series, “Sam & Cat” and turned to her singing career completely.
Ariana Grande declared her interest to pursue a singing career when she moved to Los Angeles at the age of 13. However, she wanted to release an R&B album at that age and her managers told her that releasing an R&B at her age would be a commercial flop so she kept singing solo and even performed at various times at the New York City jazz club Birdland.
Then a time came when she couldn’t wait any longer, she recorded herself singing covers of songs by Adele, Whitney Houston, and Mariah Carey, and uploaded them to YouTube and by stroke of luck or good fortune, the CEO of Republic Records came across one of Grande’s videos and soon she landed herself a recording contract.

She released her first studio album “Yours Truly” on August 30, 2013, which debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200 albums chart. Following the commercial success of the album and widespread fame, Billboard magazine ranked her at number four on their list of “Music’s Hottest Minors 2013”. At the 2013 American Music Awards, she won the award for New Artist of the Year. She was right that music is her true calling.
Ariana Grande released her second studio album “My Everything” on August 25, 2014, and debuted atop the Billboard 200. She released her third studio album “Dangerous Woman” on May 20, 2016, and it debuted at number two on the Billboard 200.
In August 2018, Ariana Grande released her fourth studio album “Sweetener” which debuted at number one on the Billboard 200. The album also earned Grande her first Grammy Award, for Best Pop Vocal Album, at the 61st Annual Grammy Awards. Her single “7 Rings” is among the most played songs on Spotify in 2019.
Ariana Grande’s boyfriend list would make another blog post but let’s make it short. Ariana Grande dated Graham Phillips between 2008-2011. They met when they were 15 years old starring in the Broadway production of “13: The Musical”. They dated for three years and released a song called Stick Around together in 2010. When the relationship ended, Ariana started dating Jai Brooks a member of the Australian prank-pop band “The Janoskians” between 2012 and 2014. Jai later accused Ariana of cheating on him with Nathan Sykes on Twitter which the singer denied. With insecurities and other glaring differences, the duo later broke up.

Names like Ricky Alvarez and Big Sean ring so much bell whenever the romantic life of Ariana is discussed. Ariana dated the late Mac Miller (Malcolm McCormick) from 2016- to early 2018 and sadly, Mac Miller passed away on 7th September 2018.
In 2018, Ariana and SNL comedian Pete Davidson started dating and within weeks they announced their engagement in June 2018. The pair split in October 2018 but remain on good terms. Ariana Grande is possibly single or in a relationship with herself as she claims in her recent project “thank you, next”.
