As her relationship with Big Sean heats up, Ariana Grande’s likability among staff and anyone working for her are quickly sinking to an all-time low. Just as Grande’s career began taking off, the diva antics started. While Grande displays a sweet persona in front of fans, throwing in a bit of naiveté to shield herself from being portrayed as anything but a sweetheart, those who work with her off camera tell a much different story about the pop singer.
As CelebTeenLaundry.com reported in July, Grande’s Nickelodeon series Sam and Cat was axed after just one season. Rumors began that it was Grande’s “cabeza grande” (big head) that came between her and costar Jennette McCurdy, leaving McCurdy upset enough to ditch the very visible Kids’ Choice Awards in March after learning Grande would be in the spotlight. Ariana loves that she was the breakout star of the show and has been reveling in all the attention she’s been getting since. Her outfits are getting smaller, her selfies are getting more risqué, and she has even started dating Big Sean, delighting in the fact that he is a known playboy and that she has locked in the man that Naya Rivera, his former fiancé, could not.
She has been executing every carefully-planned, calculated move to get herself in the media more and more. From dating Big Sean only months after his engagement was called off to collaborating with Iggy Azalea, who is hot on the charts right now. She has ditched the Nickelodeon innocence for a much sexier look for fans.
As we reported recently, Grande was called out for some serious diva behavior when filming a TV special where, as Star Magazine reports, she left the set staffers saying she was one of the worst celebrities to have worked with. While producers are quickly trying to come to the defense of Grande, saying she was nothing short of an angel on the set, the UK Daily Star’s sources paint a very different picture. The Daily Star also published a story about Grande’s behavior at the Stand Up to Cancer benefit.
Shortly after the Daily Star story published, show producers tried to dismiss any talk of Grande behaving badly at any time throughout the show. Producer Joel Gallen came to her defense when speaking to E! News, “Ariana was wonderful to work with, very gracious and a consummate professional to our team and everyone at the Stand Up to Cancer telecast.” Joel may have based his defense of the singer on how sweet she was to him, rather than how terrible she treated everyone else. Many are saying her new relationship is contributing to her becoming even more conceited than before.
So, while she may have a producer fooled, we know she cannot fool CDLers because they can spot that fakeness a mile away!
