Ariana Grande has recently been accused of a lot of outlandish diva behavior, but the pop star hasn't really responded (except by laughing at the rumors on Twitter). In a new interview with Telegraph — when she also admitted that Big Sean is her boyfriend — the "Problem" singer opened up about the reports of her reportedly out-of-control behavior, saying that she doesn't mind being called a diva.
"It’s weird to me because I do see myself as a fairly positive, very friendly person. So it’s kind of odd," she said. "I also think a lot of people don’t know what the word 'diva' means. If you want to call me a diva I’ll say, 'Um, well, cool.' Barbra Streisand is a diva; that’s amazing. Celine Dion is a diva; thank you."
Jessie J recently defended her "Bang Bang" costar by saying that strong women are often mistaken for prima donnas, and it looks like Ariana agrees that her behavior has been misconstrued.
"It’s funny how a certain amount of success comes with a certain amount of weird, inaccurate depictions of you," she said. "But I feel like it will die down because it’s not something that I play into. And also things can only last so long when there’s little truth to them. So that’s why I don’t trip over it."
That's a really good philosophy! We're glad she's not feeding into the haters and is putting a positive spin on all those crazy reports that she is a "monster" on set.
