Lyrics:

[Chorus (2x):]

Last Christmas
I gave you my heart
But the very next day you gave it away.
This year
To save me from tears
I’ll give it to someone special.

Once bitten and twice shy
I keep my distance
But you still catch my eye.
Tell me, baby,
Do you recognize me?
Well,
It’s been a year,
It doesn’t surprise me
(Merry Christmas)

I wrapped it up and sent it
With a note saying, “I love you,”
I meant it
Now I know what a fool I’ve been.
But if you kissed me now
I know you’d fool me again.

[Chorus 2x]

Oh, oh, baby.

A crowded room,
Friends with tired eyes.
I’m hiding from you
And your soul of ice.
My god I thought you were someone to rely on.
Me? I guess I was a shoulder to cry on.

A face on a lover with a fire in his heart.
A man under cover but you tore me apart, ooh-hoo.
Now I’ve found a real love, you’ll never fool me again.

[Chorus 2x]

A face on a lover with a fire in his heart (I gave you my heart)
A man under cover but you tore him apart
Maybe next year I’ll give it to someone
I’ll give it to someone special.

Special…
Someone…

Ariana Grande Defends Miley Cyrus & Justin Bieber

shiekh-shoes-ariana-grande-for-complex-magazine-december-2013-january-2014-issue-1-thumb

Ariana Grande may look sweet, but don’t be fooled. This pop princess has some spice. In a recent interview with Complex magazine, Ariana stuck up for two fellow big ticket acts in modern music: Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber.

“She’s an adult,” Ariana says of her fellow 20-year-old. “She can do whatever the hell she wants, honestly. And she looks amazing. Like, she looks gorgeous. She looks stunning. And she’s having so much fun. If her choices aren’t for you, don’t look at it. Like, move on.”

As for Bieber, “He can do whatever he wants! He’s doing the same thing as every other boy in the world right now. He’s just under a microscope, and he’s being scrutinized by people who don’t know him. I know him, and he’s a good person. He really is. He’s a nice person.”

Both Miley and Justin have made headlines of late for their respective antics including Miley’s lighting up a joint at the MTV Europe Music Awards and Justin’s impromptu film session with a mysterious woman in a South American hotel. Ariana knows both professionally, having hinted at a future musical collaboration with Miley and straight out said the Biebs sends her flirty texts.

Not so cute is the way the world harps on Miley and Justin, Ariana says. “That’s what bothers me about people and about society,” she tells Complex. “It’s like, shut up. Like shut up!”

Ariana Grande at the 2013 MTV EMAs

BYvmKARCMAAjGBjAll set for her backstage hosting duties at tonight’s MTV EMAs, Ariana Grande has hit the red carpet. But SHOCK HORROR, there is no sign of her usual skater dress and instead she was rocking a black and pink lacy midi dress.

A big fan of the princess look, Ariana ditched the voluminous frocks in favour of something a little more figure-hugging. Opting for a baby pink concoction, we are loving the black lace trim that adds a bit of an edgy outline to the look.

Cut with a sweetheart neckline, Ariana added a little halterneck strap to avoid any awkward popping out moments live on the telly.

Keeping her accessories to the minimum, she added a pair of chunky black heels, only bothering with a slick of deep red lippy and popping some white polish on her nails.

All in all we’re pretty big fans of this look and although she hasn’t exactly pushed out the boat to try something crazy, it definitely works.

She has met with other celebrities, like Will Ferrell, and the biggest pop star, Katy Perry!

Ariana Grande Confirms New Song ‘Ridiculous’

Ariana Grande performs at the 2013 Wango Tango concert at the Home Depot Center in Carson, California

Ariana Grande has exclusively revealed to MTV News UK that she’s finished a track for her currently-untitled sophomore album.

Last month, the Almost Is Never Enough singer claimed she had started working on the follow-up to her hugely successful debut LP Yours Truly, which reached No.7 in the UK charts earlier this year.

When quizzed about her forthcoming record, Grande told us: “I start recording the second album in a couple days when I get back to Los Angeles and I’m really excited about it. I don’t know too much yet, we just started working on it.

“I just have one song that I’m very excited about so far that’s kind of done. I’m really excited about it because so much has happened in the last few months… It’s been crazy and I feel like I’ve learnt a lot and grown a lot as a person so I have a lot to write about.”

When pressed further on the track that she’s already finished, Ariana admitted: “It’s called Ridiculous, I’ve never said that before. It’s a great song – I love it. I’m not sure if I’ll be able to keep it or not because there’s a little string sample in it, but I want to take all the music out and do something different anyway. So I’m going to change that.”

The 20-year old beauty went on to describe the song as “really crazy” and “a bit all over the place”, before concluding: “It’s interesting melodically… It’s more like gymnastics. It’s like a weird melody and jumpy.”

And, following the news that woman of the moment Miley Cyrus wrote a song for Grande in the showerNathan Sykes‘  lady added that she’s “so excited” to hear what Mi-Cy has to offer, stating: “I love her. I think she’s a genius.”

You can catch more from Ariana at the 2013 MTV EMA, where the Nickelodeon actress will act as the Backstage Host, bringing you all the gossip from the ceremony at the Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam on Sunday, November 10.

Ariana Grande On Jimmey Kimmel Live

Performing The Way & Right There:

Watching this girl perform live is a pleasure to your ears! The uber-talented Ariana Grande blessed the stage of “Jimmy Kimmel Live” on Tuesday night (Oct. 15) with a double performance. Ariana’s debut album “Yours Truly” debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 last month. The Boca Raton star became the first female singer whose first album debuts atop of the US charts since Ke$ha’s “Animal” in 2010. What did she perform?. Her new single “Right There” (sans Big Sean) and her smash hit “The Way” (again, sans Mac Miller). She vocally slayed both songs. Like Ariana knew that last night she could give her 100%. I mean, the vocal control, the whistle notes, and every little sound that came out of her mouth…Ariana was on fire on “Jimmy Kimmel” last night. The video for “Right There” is already shot, and should premiere any day now. Check out the videos and photos of Ariana Grande when she was at the set of Jimmy Kimmel Live!

Heat World Interviews Ariana Grande

HeatWorld

It’s really lucky Ariana Grande doesn’t have globophobia, because the task heat set for her to pop balloons to answer readers’ questions could have turned into a nightmare for the singer.

She and boyfriend Nathan Sykes out of The Wanted nipped in for a chat and ended up chucking balloons at each other’s heads. Aww, young love.

Anyway, here’s what we learnt about Ariana:

  • She has a tiny little heart tattoo on her toe.
  • LOVES dark chocolate but is massively allergic to it – apparently it affects her brain.
  • She wants to work with Imogen Heap and Bruno Mars.
  • Has already met Nathan’s family and loves them!

Thanks to HeatWorld for having the chance to interview Ariana Grande! Check out the video!

Ariana Grande Interviewed On Entertainment Wise

Ariana and Nathan’s Relationship

Ariana Grande has revealed that it took some time for things to hot up between her and The Wanted’s Nathan Sykes.

The 20 year-old actress-singer admitted that she noticed the hunky boyband star months ago, however it took a while for her to pluck up the courage to act on her feelings.

“I saw him in March on a red carpet, and we locked eyes with each other all night. I thought, he was cute as hell. Nothing happened obviously and then, the duet came about,” she recalled.

It wasn’t until the opportunity arose for the pair to duet together on the song ‘Almost Is Never Enough’ featured on the ‘Mortal Instruments: City Of Bones’ soundtrack, that Ariana summoned up the courage to get to know Nathan, 20, better.

“We hadn’t met really still, until we shot the video,” she said. “It was a really fun day – he was very sweet and cute. We started talking and then it just went from there. No, actually we didn’t really start talking until we met again at Justin Bieber’s tour in August.”

The couple later announced their relationship on Twitter in September, after weeks of speculation about their romance.

“So, I guess it’s obvious now… thanks to everyone who is being so lovely. I’m so happy #butweareterrified #pleasedontkillme #orariana,” Nathan wrote.

Ariana added: “We hesitated saying anything as people can be a bit insensitive but thank u we value all of your happiness, thank you for valuing ours :).”

Ariana explained to EntertainmentWise this week that the cute couple wanted to wait a while before making any announcements about their burgeoning romance.

“We were still trying to figure it out, we both have really open relationships with our fans so we wanted to tell them when there was something to know because we didn’t want them to find out through some outlet or some weird source.

“So we just felt like it would be more honest to tell them straight up because if there’s something to be said I’d rather it come from me and him and we felt the same way.”

Music & Acting Career

The Almost is Never Enough singer chatted to EntertainmentWise this week and was more than happy to discuss rumours she might be trying to ditch her tween star image – something that she insists isn’t true.

“I’m not trying to escape my Nickelodeon persona,” Ariana explained, “It’s still a massive part of my life. I’m still filming Sam and Cat and Cat’s still very important to me and holds a very special place in my heart.”

While some child stars change their image in order to attract a more mature audience, the 20-year-old reveals that adjusting her image is not something that she can herself do consciously. Instead, Ariana would like to think that these changes will happen naturally with time.

“As far as the whole transition thing, I don’t really ever see myself thinking or doing something to make the statement. I think I just want to let my music be separate from my television persona,” she revealed.

[accordion]

[pane title=”More”]

“I want there to be a Cat and an Ariana,” she says, referring to the American teen sitcom she stars in alongside iCarly star Jennette McCurdy. “I’ve done a good job of separating that and then whatever happens from there happens from there.”

Although she might not be in a hurry to ditch her teen star image, Ariana – who is currently dating The Wanted’s Nathan Sykes – does admit that she is growing up but, luckily for her, this hasn’t come with any reckless side effects!

“I’m growing up but I don’t have any crazy impulses yet.” She admitted. Hopefully it’ll stay that way!”
