Cosmopolitan Magazine had an exclusive interview with Ariana Grande, who covers on the February 2014 issue and got to take some photos of her. Ariana Grande talked about her personal life and career, and she posed for a photo shoot with Matt Jones, who could be seen and read from the 7th of January (for anyone who purchases a copy of the magazine). Check out the photos of the photoshoot and cover, and read the interview below!

In Amsterdam, Grande was mobbed by fans when she tried to make her way through the airport. “I never want to be the person who avoids my own fans, so I always try to stop and say hi,” she says. “But it turned into a big mosh of people, and it became quite dangerous. I got sent to the police station, and they told me not to come back to that airport!” Later, so many fans camped out to see the singer that the manager of her hotel dubbed Grande a safety risk and forbade her from going out on her balcony to wave to them. “I just went out anyway,” she says. “I said, ‘You can’t stop me!’ That’s one thing to get in trouble for: loving your fans too much.”

Despite being literally surrounded by people, she confesses to a little loneliness. “I didn’t know that I was capable of going to so many places in so few days,” she says. “It’s really hard for me and my friend Alexa, because she’s in school and she doesn’t have the flexibility to come visit me on the road whenever she wants. But whenever she’s on break, I try to fly her in and keep her with me as long as I can. It’s funny; one time I tweeted her school in Gainesville, like, ‘I’m keeping Alexa!’ And they tweeted me back: ‘All right. Make sure she does her homework.'”

More from Ariana’s interview:
On being a positive role model: “I think I’m an old soul. What excites younger people doesn’t excite me… I’m kind of a boring, normal girl who likes Harry Potter and to sit in her pajamas and sing. A lot of my friends are partiers, but I’ve never really clicked with that. I like Barbra Streisand, and when was the last time you saw Babs getting, like, turnt up? That’s kind of the road that I, as a lady, would like to go down.”

On dealing with her Twitter haters: “Oh, they’re evil as hell! I don’t even block them anymore, because I feel like it’s giving them negativity in return. So I just let it happen and forgive them and move on. Those people are fighting their own battles.”

On her first date with Nathan Sykes, the youngest member of British boy band The Wanted: ““We were going back to his hotel to watch a movie, and he had Ladurée macarons and sunflowers waiting—I love Parisian baked goods, and sunflowers are my favorite flower. He had taken the DVD player out of the bedroom and into the living room, because he said he didn’t want to take me into the bedroom on the first date.”

Still, when your life moves as fast as Grande’s does right now, nothing’s guaranteed (except that whatever happens will be fodder for another hit song). Maybe that’s one reason she remains wary of going too public with her relationships. “Sometimes people get too fixated on what people are going to say,” she says, recalling the grief she got when she Instagrammed a friendly kiss from former tourmate Justin Bieber. “At the end of the day, you’re in a relationship because you love that person, not because of what other people think.”

On making a name for herself in the music industry: “I never really expected to be taken seriously as an artist, and it’s just been the ultimate, proudest achievement. I’ve dealt with a lot of people not knowing what to expect from me because of my age and my personality. People often mistake my kindness for weakness, and they didn’t expect much from me, because at the end of the day, I’m just a nice Italian girl from Boca.”
