Ariana Grande, MTV VMA's 2014

Ariana Grande's last name happens to also be the medium-sized drink at Starbucks, but that doesn't mean it's her go-to beverage size.

"No, sometimes I get that venti, you know?" she says in an interview with Time. "Some days that's what you need in your life."

To clarify, the 21-year-old "Problem" singer says she "obviously" doesn't have dairy "because I'm a vegan," but soy lattes from the 'bucks "taste out of this world to me."

In the same interview, Ariana is asked about her "go-to-moves in the club." While you can see her, Nicki Minaj and Jessie J twerk it up in their "Bang Bang" music video,  Ariana's description is much more entertaining. Because when she hits the club, "There's a lot of strutting to the beat. There's a lot of sitting down and leg-kicking and voguing and posing and hair flipping involved."

Don't think she's some happy-go-lucky dancing diva, though. When Time asks Ariana which emoji best represents her (welcome to the 21st century!) she replies rather darkly that there's "a brunette, severed head with the driest expression of all time on her face," and feels "like I relate to it."

She's also fond of "a navy blue square with stars in it [that's] supposed to look like the universe."

How...deep. In any case, the former Disney star isn't exactly a typical pop princess (after all, she claims her own mother thought she "might grow up to be a serial killer"), but she's got a fun side, too. "I have the sense of humor of a 14-year-old boy," she insists. "It's very crude."

That's "just how my family is," she says. "We're just this Italian family that loves slightly raunchy humor."

But her loving to "talk to people make people laugh" results in a "misrepresentation of [her] as a person," she says. "Sometimes people can confuse my niceness for weakness in a way—or ditziness or stupidity," she says. "But it doesn't go hand-in-hand in that way, you know what I mean?"

Insert thumbs up emoji here.
