Ariana Grande’s Feelings Were Really Hurt When Everyone Called Her a Diva, So She Called Miley Cyrus for Comfort

Bad Behavior
Grande is constantly accused of treating people poorly.
Ariana Grande’s alleged bratty, bordering-on-cruel behavior — sometimes referred to as “being a diva” to make it seem more polite — has been the story that just won’t die. Grande has gone on record a few times saying that not only is she not bothered by the rumors, that they aren’t even true. It appears that the former is untrue, however, and that the “Break Free” singer was so bothered by the reports, she reached out to Miley Cyrus for comfort.

Grande spoke with The Mirror, saying, “I was upset and I contacted Miley. I said, ‘Miley, I’m so sad – what do I do? This isn’t true. My heart is broken, I feel so bad.”

And what did Cyrus, who knows a thing or two about a bad press cycle, tell Grande? “She was like, ‘Girl, don’t even look at it. Just be happy that you’re blessed. You have family and friends love you, you have fans that love you who know what’s true and what’s not.” Great advice.

Cyrus apparently also advised Grande that “It will blow over and tomorrow they’ll be talking about something else.”

Whether or not Grande is a “diva,” she does make a good point about double standards in the music industry:

“If you see a woman working hard who is successful – who doesn’t stop until she reaches her goal, who is strong and has wishes and dreams she wants to fulfill, and works hard every day – you label them a diva. But if you see a man doing that, you’re like, ‘He’s incredible, he’s an amazing businessman.'”

The moral of the story is that maybe we should all stop calling Grande a diva, at least until she’s accused of wishing death on her fans again.
