Ariana GrandeÂ is opening up about her life -Â talking selfies, insecurities, fans and heartbreak over her fractured relationship with her dad.
The 21-year-old spills all in a new interview withÂ Seventeen magazine. Here is the 411:Â
"Everybody makes up these ridiculous captions for their selfies that have nothing to do with the picture, like 'Layin' in bed on Saturday.' Itâ€™s like, No, you are not! Â You just spent an hour getting ready for this picture! We all post a selfie for the same reasonâ€”because we feel better about ourselves than usual. Â So just be like, â€˜Hey, I feel good about myself today, so hereâ€™s a picture!â€™"
"Everybody has certain things that make them feel insecure. Even when you overcome a huge battle in your life and you make a ton of progress as a person, there are still things that will upset you and break your heart. But I feel like Iâ€™m at a point in my life where love is the most important thing, and I wonâ€™t let anything come before it."
On her fans
"If my fans want something, I'll always do my best to give it to them. A lot of my fans are in love with my old music, and theyâ€™re always asking me if they can have the songs that didnâ€™t make it on the first album. I had to buy ['Boyfriend Material'], so I could just give it to them for free. I really wanted them to have itÂ because they love it!"
On toughest thing sheâ€™s had to deal with
"Falling out of touch with my dad. Â Itâ€™s private, but it happened last year. Â It took me so long to be okay with it. The thing that got me there was embracing the fact that that I am made up of half my dad, and a lot of my traits come from him. Â So much of me comes from my father, and for so long, I didn't like that about myself. I had to accept that itâ€™s okay not to get along with somebody and still love them."
