Ariana Grande has the world in her pocket. Recently, at a pool party she began singing the ever-so-popular Problem. The result was that nearly everyone present on the occasion just went wild with frenzy.
The passionate fast-paced funky beats of the number with Iggy Azalea’s staccato rap lines simply rocked the crowd. Ariana is a big girl now and she can responsibly deal with what comes her way.
She had a sky-high pony tail and wore a royal purple top along with white boots. And the beauty of the performance was that Iggy’s cameo lyrics were not a recording but the blonde rap artist in person delivering the lines.
The people just went stark raving mad when they realized this. Recently in an interview, Ariana counted the similarities between herself and Miley Cyrus.
Yet she refused to be compared in any way with the excessively open and explicit pop starlet. Both began as childhood sweethearts, and later on became sexy vixens. But that is where the similarities come to a halt.
Ariana begged to differ from the general opinion. She likes doing her own thing and couldn’t imagine copying Miley. She said: “There are so many comparisons for girls in this industry it’s annoying.
“I’m not thinking: ‘Miley Cyrus is doing this so I ought to do this too.’
Ariana is also currently shedding her girl next door image and gaining ground as a sex symbol and poster girl that gets the male hormones all riled up.
She spoke of how it was all a question of evolution. Her song problem is the #1 hit in over 64 nations. She is the talk of the Global Village. Ariana also respects Iggy a lot and wanted to thank her profusely for helping her land the #1 spot in hit songs on the Billboard Hot 100.
Meanwhile, Jessie J has released a video clip of her number with Nicki Minaj and Ariana Grande. Titled Bang Bang, it has some very in-your-face lyrics and will be a fresh and pleasant surprise for the many fans of the three singers.
Ariana thus is a busy girl - or rather woman - these days. In fact, she has more on her plate than she can eat at one go.
