Ariana Grande isn't a diva-in-training, contrary to reports.
During a radio interview with Mike E and Emma on 96.1 Monday, the "Bang Bang" singer addressed the negative press she's been receiving in Australia—particularly the claim that she stormed off the set of a photo shoot. "It does suck," the 21- year-old singer said of the "totally untrue and annoying" rumor mill.
Regarding that particular rumor, she told the co-hosts, "It was just a photographer or something who got mad at me because I left to change my outfit mid photo shoot because I didn't like my top. I was like, 'Oh, I'll be right back!' and then I came back and he had left.' I was like, 'Oh, s--t!' And then he came out and said all these ridiculous untrue things about me. I was like, 'That's not real. That's nonsense!'"
"My fans know who I am, my family knows who I am, my friends know who I am, and that's all that matters," Grande said. "No matter what you do, no matter what your profession is, no matter how old you are, everybody deals with haters. We could talk about it for hours...[Gossipers] are also people who don't necessarily know you or understand you. They're also judging an inaccurate depiction of you."
