Ariana Grande Talks Insecurities And Reveals The Toughest Thing She Has Had To Deal With


Ariana Grande is just like all of us. She has insecurities too. This pop-star’s Instagram gives you little peeks into her life as many of you know as you follow her on the social networking site. But now she’s found the confidence to reveal an unfiltered look at her true self. Check out the highlights from the Ariana Grande interview with Seventeen magazine below.

Ariana Grande on putting herself out there and being totally exposed:
“It’s tough to spend some of the most important years of your life in front of so many strangers who want to pick you apart. Insecurity has been the hardest thing I’ve had to overcome. I think everyone my age struggles with that because everyone strives for approval and wants to feel loved.”

How she gets over her insecurities:
“I focus on what’s important. My grandpa is sick, so I focus on him every day. I’m having the biggest song of my career so far, and all I can think about is my grandpa, because that’s what’s important to me.”

The biggest lesson she’s learned in the past few years:
“Being okay with not having the answers to everything. I feel like for the first time in my life, I’m really okay. I used to freak out about everything all the time. I used to be like, ‘Oh my God, somebody said this!’ Everything used to be such a big deal! But now, I feel I can handle everything that comes my way with a calm energy.”

The toughest thing she has ever had to deal with:
“Falling out of touch with my dad. It’s private, but it happened last year. 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. So much of me comes from my father, and for so long, I didn’t like that about myself. I had to accept that it’s okay not to get along with somebody and still love them.”

UPDATE: As this issue and her the interview hits after Ariana’s grandfather passed last week, she wanted to add the following quote: “This interview took place before I lost my grandfather. Reading it back now is, of course, very hard but I’m so grateful that I spoke briefly about some of the wisdom he shared with me in this interview. I hope the Seventeen readers find it helpful and can relate.”
