On the night of that Thursday (1), a special of Ariana Grande was aired on the British TV BBC . She has performed with orchestra, including new songs from the album “Sweetener” and some classics of her career, as well as chatting with hostess Davina McCall.
In the interview, she even talked about her anxiety problems. “You have ups and downs and sometimes you spend weeks at a time when you will be raging and there will be no anxiety. Then something will happen that can trigger and you will have some bad days, “he explained.
About the sonority of the album “Sweetener”, she said: “I think it represented a change, since I do not like to hear the same thing always. I do not think I created something totally new, but for me it’s a new flavor. With that I got to know myself better, my music grew, so did fans, so everything changed together, “he explained.

On February 21st, it was announced that Ariana Grande has pulled out of her performance at the 2018 BRIT Awards after doctors told her she was too ill to fly to Britain.
The 24-year-old singer was due to pay tribute to the 22 people killed at her concert in Manchester last year but has now been replaced by Liam Gallagher with just hours to spare.
Despite wanting to perform anyway, doctors have insisted she is not up to it, the BRITs chief executive has confirmed.
BRITs boss Geoff Taylor told BBC Radio 5 Live: ‘We think it’s really important to recognise that terrible atrocity and the impact on so many lives so I can confirm we did have Ariana Grande lined up to make a performance tonight.
‘Unfortunately she was not able to travel on doctor’s orders, she’s not well, and I can say that there will be something tonight, I can’t say any more than that but people should tune in and watch. And hopefully it will be a fitting remembrance and recognition of what happened, which was so terrible.’
Insiders also told the Mirror she was ‘ordered by doctors not to fly’, saying: ‘It was utter chaos when the call came in that Ariana couldn’t do it. ‘It’s a race against time to get someone to do what is very much the centrepiece of the entire show.’
Following the news, the newspaper revealed: ‘Liam has saved the day by stepping in at the last minute. It’s a perfect choice. It’s going to be the moment of the evening.’
Miss Grande was believed to have been lined up for the top spot, with sources stating: ‘It will be the biggest talking point of the night. The whole industry wants to come together to pay their respects to the victims.
‘The effects of that terrible night resonated far and wide in the music industry and it’s only right everyone comes together to pay their respects.’
He could be singing Live Forever, which he sang with Coldplay’s Chris Martin at the Manchester One Love concert, according to reports.
The Mirror’s Tom Bryant took to Twitter to reveal: ‘BREAKING: Ariana Grande ‘ordered by her doctor not to fly’ after falling ill at the last minute before the BRITs.
‘A source close to the star exclusively tells the Mirror: ‘Ariana fell ill and was going to come in spite of that, but was ordered by her doctor to not fly.’
Liam Gallagher has not always been on good terms with BRIT bosses, launching a furious tirade after they rejected his initial request to perform at tonight’s ceremony. The Oasis frontman, 45, who famously swore, dropped his microphone and gave his award to the crowd during his acceptance speech at the Brits in 2010, labelled show bosses ‘too scared’ to have him among the line-up.
But the tragedy of the incident that devastated his home city appears to have changed his attitude.
On January 17th, the nominations for the 2018 NME Awards came out, and Ariana Grande is nominated for two awards! The NME Awards is an annual music awards show in the United Kingdom, founded by the music magazine, NME (New Musical Express).
This year, she is nominated for Music Moment of the Year (One Love Manchester), and Hero of the Year.

What do you get when you add Ariana Grande to Lipsy? A dreamy celeb collaboration, that’s what. Yep, there’s everything from lace shorties and crochet crop tops to figure-hugging bodycons and classic LBDs – and just when we thought things couldn’t get any better, we got the inside scoop from Miss Grande herself. Here’s everything you need to know about her brand new SS16 Lipsy collection…
What’s your favourite piece from the summer collection?
I’m loving the violet floral printed dress with the apron neck. Its super feminine and it’s a classic summer dress you’ll be able to wear year after year.
Which item is your summer must-have?
A crop top! I like them year round but they are perfect for summertime.
Which is your favourite piece from the summer jewellery collection?
I literally took the pom-pom earrings home with me straight after the shoot. I think they’re so playful and unique.
Which item would you wear if you were going to a festival?
The cute little playsuit with the floral design – it’s a perfect festival look as it is short and flirty but also super comfortable.
And for a date night?
I think one of the little black dresses- they are all so cute and simple. I love the updated versions in the collection especially the one with the exposed zipper.
Any new pieces or design elements that you were really feeling for in this range?
I really liked the cold shoulder that was in the last collection so we brought it back. The bow elements are so girly and the pink dress has the most amazing back bow.
Tell us a bit about the design process. When designing and brainstorming, where were you, what music was playing, what surrounded you? What time of day? Is this similar to your song writing process?
I loved being part of the design process. I get inspiration from everywhere and I loved looking at instagram for ideas. It was so amazing being able to work with the Lipsy team to make my ideas into reality! I’m so happy to have been finally able to make this collection for my amazing fans.
How have your fans reacted to your collection?
My fans are so amazing! To celebrate the first collection, Lipsy launched a sketch competition and the drawings were so beautiful and had so much effort go into them. I was blown away.
If you could pick any brand in the world to collaborate with, which would it be?
Lipsy has been great to work with! I am so glad they helped me make this collection for my amazing fans.
I am so excited for my new music. I really can’t wait for my album to be out!
On April 26th, it has been officially announced that Ariana Grande will join the line up for the Capital FMSummertime Ball 2016! It will take place in the UK on June 11th!
Fresh off the success of her new single, ‘Dangerous Woman’, Ari will no doubt be bringing some new songs from her brand new album as well as some of her classics we all know and love.
Ariana told Capital what we can expect from her performance, “I’m so, so, so excited. You’ll have to wait and see, I’m not going to ruin any surprises. I’m really excited to be performing new material and to see my fans, it’s not often that I get to come and perform out here so I’m very excited. I’ll see you there!”

On March 30th, Ariana was interviewed on the BBC Radio 1 Breakfast Show with Nick Grimshaw to talk about Dangerous Woman, and talk with fans on the radio!
The modest star admitted she never thought she “slayed” at singing and feels her career is still in its early stages.
“I think it was one time I was singing in sync in the car with my mom. I was really young… it was something where Jay Z had a high riff at the end and my mom was like, ‘hold on’ and she rewound it and was like ‘hold on can you do that again?'”
“And I was like ‘yeah sure’ and my mum was like well you have a really good voice,” the singer revealed. She recalled how growing up in a musical family helped to nurture her talent at an early age, but also prevented her from thinking she was anything special.
“When I was little, I don’t think I ever had that thought ‘I slay at singing’ but I think my mom, she is like a CEO and does her own thing, but she encouraged us to sing and she loves music,” she shared.
“My dad will always sing karaoke and my brother (Frankie) was into musical theatre and I’ve always been surrounded by music, so I didn’t think it was weird to be a singer or sing,” she added.
“There’s a little bit of pressure but I feel like the single is a song that I love so much and am so proud of it, so that’s the most rewarding thing. I’m glad my fans are loving it but that’s just the best feeling.”
On March 2, Ariana Grande’s Lipsy London collection was finally released, and there are tons of outfits and jewellery that you could choose from. She also talked to press about the collection along with general things, below which is an interview with Reveal. Check it all out below!
When singer Ariana Grande announced a clothing collaboration with high-street fashion hotspot Lipsy earlier last month, we may have squealed the office down…
Fast forward to today and the drop has officially landed, and as promised, it’s awash with gorgeously girly frocks, fierce monochrome co-ords and seriously sassy cropped tops – not to mention a whole hoard of totally wearable accessories.
Speaking exclusively to Reveal, the songstress spills all about her fabulous new haul including where she nabbed the style inspiration from…
Hi Ariana! How would you describe your style?
My signature look is pretty much always feminine, flirty with a nod to the 50s and 60s retro silhouettes. I also have a big floral and pastel obsession right now which I’ve made sure to incorporate into my new line with Lipsy.
We’re so excited to land our hands on the collection. Give us the lowdown on everything!
Lipsy were so great to work with and I can’t believe I was able to collaborate with them to make this collection. They made the process so much fun! From the fabric, to the cuts, to the photo shoot, I’ve been so involved and I really hope the Lipsy girls and my fans love it. Modelling the range was a fun moment for me.
The biker jacket is such a wardrobe staple. It’s so versatile and can be paired with almost anything and the little peek-a-boo cut detail on the black fitted Bardot dress makes it a special LBD for your closet. The two monochrome skirts in the collection can be dressed up or down and would be great paired with the lace crop top and the red maxi dress makes a bold statement.
Who is your biggest style icon – alive or dead?
Audrey Hepburn! I literally love everything she has ever worn. Her style is classic but still girly, it’s very me.
From the stunning new collection, which one piece in particular have you been wearing to death?
I’m obsessed with the white floral bandeau dress. It’s fun, flirty, feminine and just super cute. I think it’s a dress you could easily dress up with heels and a clutch for a special occasion or keep casual with sandals and the biker jacket for a daytime look.
What do you tend to watch the most of on YouTube?
My friends and I love watching funny videos while on tour or after a long day of rehearsals and anything Disney!
Favourite Instagram filter?
What item would you wear to:
Wedding? The pink floral dress, who doesn’t love floral at a wedding?
Prom? I’d mix it up and go for the black lace crop top with the monochrome skirt. Its kind if a classic style with a modern twist.
Date Night? The black lace top dress. You instantly feel sexy as soon as you slip it on.
What trend do you love at the minute?
Crop tops! They’re cute, fun and sexy. I love teaming them with a skirt for a flirty and playful look. I have a few options of this style in my collection.
What’s your favourite emoji?
Not sure I could pick just one favourite! But this is an oldie but a goodie:
On March 2, Ariana Grande’s Lipsy London collection was finally released, and there are tons of outfits and jewellery that you could choose from. She also talked to press about the collection along with general things, below which is an interview with MailOnline. Check it all out below!
She’s already a pop sensation and beauty guru and now Ariana Grande has proved there’s no end to her talents after turning her hand to fashion design. The pint-sized pop princess has joined forces with British high-street retailer Lipsy to launch a 20-piece fashion range.
Speaking to MailOnline, the 22 year-old actress-turned-singer says the collection is ‘fun, feminine and totally affordable’ and says she feels ‘so lucky’ that she’s had the opportunity to create the range for her fans.
Ariana, who joins Michelle Keegan at the label, says the range offers a new ‘dynamic and directional route of strong fashion silhouettes, on-trend must-haves and wardrobe staples for those who want to make a real fashion statement.’
‘It is full of super cute dresses as well as more edgy separates and wardrobe must-haves. I really hope my fans will love it,’ said the star, who has a staggering 61.4m followers on Instagram. Ariana, who has made the Sixties look her signature, cites ‘eternal and timeless’ Audrey Hepburn as her style icon, as well as her friends and grandmother, who she affectionately calls ‘nonna’.
There’s a ‘Riviera chic’ daywear collection of chic midi skirts and blouses, an array of prom dresses and party wear in Ariana’s signature ‘fit and flare’ shape style. The colour palette is predominantly monochrome with silver and pale nudes and fabrics are thick structured satins, lace, and embroidered organza.
‘I will be so honoured when I see anyone wearing the collection, I can’t even think about anything else,’ she said. Hoping to keep things purse-friendly for her fans, prices start from £35 for dresses and skirts and £32 for tops. The creative star has also added a 30-piece jewellery range with her trademark cat ears and ear cuffs.
Of course, Ariana models the entire range herself and displays her trim figure in the campaign shots. So what’s the secret behind her slim physique? ‘I have been a vegan for the last few years and it has been a great experience for me,’ she revealed.
‘I try and live a healthy lifestyle; eating right, exercise and sleep are all so important. ‘I try and stay really active all the time. I like to hike when I can and being on stage is a great workout.’ Whilst she says her schedule can be tiring, she ‘absolutely loves’ what she does and feels really blessed so just tries to live in the moment.
‘I have a great team around me to help me and surrounding myself with family and friends really helps too,’ she added. Ariana has had a stellar career to date after shooting to fame in 2013 and becoming one of the most famous females in pop.
The former Disney star has a combined social media reach across her official accounts of over 115 million fans, as well as being one of the top 10 most followed Instagram users in the world. But the pop princess isn’t resting on her laurels. ‘There is so much left to do!’, she said. ‘I love making music and I can’t wait for my fans to hear my new album.’
On March 2, Ariana Grande’s Lipsy London collection was finally released, and there are tons of outfits and jewellery that you could choose from. She also talked to press about the collection along with general things, below which is an interview with Miss Vogue. Check it all out below!
Don’t get mistaken that with multiple number one singles, 61 million Instagram followers (yes, way more than either Jenners) and boasting an accomplished TV career, Ariana Grande feels like her CV is full. Instead, quite the opposite. Working with Lipsy, the pint-sized popstar is the latest famous face to create her own clothing line and the offering is 100 per cent Ariana. Signature-style skater skirts and cut-out mini-dresses come in candy-pop colours, while lacy crop tops and slinky LBDs would fit right into her on-stage wardrobe.
“I really wanted to do something special for my fans and I am so grateful Lipsy gave me this opportunity. It’s playful, flirty and affordable so I think there is something for everyone. I really hope my fans love it! Honestly, I will just be so honoured to see anyone wearing the collection!,” Ariana told Miss Vogue.
Naturally, when it came to designing the collection, the first place she looked was to her own wardrobe. “We had a lot of images from Instagram and Pinterest as well as some of my favourite red-carpet looks I’ve worn in the past.” The 23-piece collection also features the pieces she relies on to feel most confident: skater dresses and co-ord tops and skirts.
For her red-carpet appearances, Ariana works with a stylist, explaining that recently she has taken a new direction with her sartorial choices, which have been influenced by the sounds of her new album (rumoured to be called Dangerous Woman). “My new music has a bit of an edge to it and I’ve been having fun incorporating that into my style. For the Grammys we really wanted to do something classic with that edge – I loved the Ramona Keveza gown I wore! I think it is important to stay true to who you are and pick things that you really really love.”
Starting out on Nickelodeon as a pre-teen, Ariana admits to having had a fair few outfit blunders: “Who hasn’t?! I’ve been on TV since I was little so there are lots of funny pictures to look back on and say: ‘What was I thinking?!'” She’s since learnt what works for her in and out of the public eye. On lazy days she sticks to a uniform of Victoria’s Secret Pink pyjamas, but when stepping out she will always rely on a heel: “If you are as petite as I am, heels really help make an outfit.”
But in the mist of clothing upgrades, there is one thing that has stayed a constant: the Ariana Grande ponytail. An on-stage tool that comes into play when flicked and swooshed around and serves well for an over-the-shoulder pose. “I have just always worn my hair that way because its super easy, so I suppose it kind of unintentionally became my signature look.” The secret? “I rely on a really good brush and lots of hairspray.”
With a social-media fan base almost touching 100 million, Ariana is a popstar totally aware of her moral responsibilities. In the past she has voiced her first-hand experiences of gender inequality in the music business and is an ardent feminist. “I think it’s important to speak up about issues that matter and I believe we all have a responsibility to use our voices to help make a difference,” she confesses. “I wish people would be nicer to one another, especially on social media where comments can be so cruel.”
Her floor-filling anthems are rooted in girl power and her Instagram often plays host to images of inspirational women. She name checks Madonna, Audrey Hepburn and Maya Angelou as some of her favourite idols, while the pair at the top of her list is her mum and “nonna” confessing that she couldn’t imagine her life without them.
It’s also her close-knit Italian-American family that she relies on to keep her grounded when the fame game gets a bit too much. “I am so lucky to have them all around a lot. When I do start to feel it, I know I can always count on them to make me feel better.”
The other support she credits: the Arianators, with whom she is looking forward to sharing her new music. “I am just really excited about making music that I love and that my fans love. I mean, without my fans I’d be nothing! They are the most supportive and loving fans. I like to be able to connect with them and share my life with them.”
Whenever her next new tour begins, no doubt there will be a current theme running throughout the audience: Arianators wearing her Lipsy signature styles.
Ariana Grande is on the February cover of the UK magazine LOOK, and her photos with Lipsy London have been put inside the excerpt, along with an interview about the collection, feminism and bullying, and artists such as Ed Sheeran, Nathan Sykes, Adele, and more! Check out the interview below!
You’re very outspoken about equality and feminism, why are these issues so important to you?
‘I love surrounding myself with strong women and I love promoting that kind of attitude.’
What misconceptions about feminism would you like to break down?
‘Feminism is just about promoting equality- it’s not a scary thing- we should all consider ourselves feminists.’
You’ve spoken out a lot about online bullying, what do you think can be done to prevent if from happening?
‘All you can do is lead by example. We’ve all been there or know someone who has. I see it daily and it breaks my heart.’
You wrote an amazing piece on Twitter about the double standards women experience, what examples of these have you encountered recently in your own life?
‘I think all of us have experienced double standards at one time or another. It’s important that we stick up for ourselves and for other women.’
Who do you look up to?
‘Madonna! I recently performed with her and it was everything and more. That woman’s drive is beyond.’
Recently you worked with your ex [former The Wanted band member, Nathan Sykes] wasn’t that tough?
‘We are friends and I am so happy with how the song turned out.’
Ed Sheeran said you have a foul mouth after last year’s VS secrets, is that true?
‘I can be known to have quite the inappropriate sense of humour! And Ed Sheeran is so British and embarrasses easily. He is so easy to make blush. I think people often think I’m totally censored so I love to catch them off guard!’
Which other artists do you love?
‘I really love Adele, Jessie J’s my girl – collaborating with her was super cool. She brings such a different vibe. I was buzzing off her energy. Ed’s obviously a legend. The Brits know how to do it just much more proper and [all] washed down with a nice cup of tea!’
