Ariana Grande-Butera (born June 26, 1993) is an American singer, songwriter and actress. She gained popularity when she played the role of Cat Valentine on the Nickelodeon TV series, Victorious, and afterwards portrayed the same character on the spin-off, Sam & Cat. She broke out musically in 2013 with her debut single, \\"The Way\\" from her No. 1 debut album, Yours Truly.
In 2014, Grande achieved worldwide success with \\"Problem\\" which peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100, and released her sophomore album, My Everything on August 25, 2014. In March 2016, Grande released her lead single \\"Dangerous Woman\\" for her third studio album Dangerous Woman. The song debut to No. 10 in the Billboard Hot 100 making her the first artist in the history of the chart to have all her lead singles from her first three albums debut in the top ten. She went on the Dangerous Woman Tour in 2017, and the tour grossed $71M. She has officially been made a honorary citizen of Manchester after organising and performing at the One Love Manchester benefit concert. The same year, Grande recorded the title track of the soundtrack for the 2017 live-action remake of Disney's Beauty and the Beast with John Legend. She also appeared in an Apple Music Carpool Karaoke episode, singing musical theatre songs with Seth MacFarlane, and became a brand ambassador for Reebok. Even without releasing a new album in 2017, Grande became Billboard's Female Artist of the Year\\". Grande has released five fragrances with Luxe Brands since 2015. They had grossed over $150 million in global sales by 2017.
Grande was born and raised in Boca Raton, Florida to Joan Grande and Edward Butera. Grande is of Italian descent. Her name was inspired by Princess Oriana from Felix the Cat and the shortened name of an Italian Car manufacturer Ferrari. She has an older half-brother, Frankie, who is a performer and producer. When she was 8 years old, she went on a cruise with her family and she sang karaoke when Gloria Estefan (a famous Latin singer) was listening to her sing. She told Grande to follow her dreams, which inspired Grande to do singing and acting. Grande then did musicals at her local theater, her first being Annie, before taking music seriously when she was 13.
Grande was cast in the Nickelodeon television show Victorious along with 13 co-star Elizabeth Gillies in 2009. In this sitcom, set in a performing arts high school, Grande played the \\"adorably dimwitted\\" Cat Valentine. She had to dye her hair red every other week for the role because the executive producer, Dan Schneider, did not want all the cast members to be brunettes, and the red hair was also a feature that the network felt would fit the personality of Cat. The show premiered in March 2010 to the second largest audience for a live-action series in Nickelodeon history with 5.7 million viewers. The role helped propel Grande to teen idol status, but she was more interested in a music career, stating that acting is \\"fun, but music has always been first and foremost with me.\\" Her character was compared to \\"Brittany Murphy's performance as the hapless Tai in Clueless\\" (1995) and described as being \\"very impressionable and easily swayed\\" but \\"generally sweet\\". In 2010, she played the role of Miriam in the musical Cuba Libre, written and produced by songwriter Desmond Child.
On a second soundtrack for Victorious, Victorious 2.0, released on June 5, 2012, as an extended play, Grande supplied vocals for a cover of \\"Don't You (Forget About Me)\\". After four seasons, Victorious was not renewed. The finale aired in February 2013. The third and final Victorious soundtrack, Victorious 3.0, was released on November 6, 2012, featuring Grande duetting with Victoria Justice in the song \\"L.A. Boyz\\". A music video of the song followed. In December 2012, Grande collaborated on the single version of \\"Popular Song\\", a duet with British singer and songwriter Mika. She also starred as Snow White in a pantomime-style musical theatre production called A Snow White Christmas, together with Charlene Tilton and Neil Patrick Harris at the Pasadena Playhouse. Grande played Amanda Benson in Swindle, a 2013 Nickelodeon film adaptation of the children's book of the same name.
Meanwhile, Nickelodeon created Sam & Cat, an iCarly and Victorious spin-off starring Jennette McCurdy and Grande. Grande and McCurdy reprised their respective roles as Cat Valentine and Sam Puckett on the buddy sitcom, which paired the characters as roommates who form an after-school babysitting business. The pilot aired on June 8, 2013, and the show was immediately picked up by the network. The following month, Nickelodeon doubled Sam & Cat's original 20-episode order for season one, making it a 40-episode season. Despite its success in the ratings, the series was canceled after 36 episodes. The final episode aired on July 17, 2014.
The lead single \\"The Way\\", featuring Pittsburgh rapper Mac Miller, debuted at number 10 on the US Billboard Hot 100, eventually peaking at number nine for two weeks, and spent 26 weeks on the Hot 100. Grande was later sued by Minder Music for copying the line \\"What we gotta do right here is go back, back in time\\" from the 1972 song \\"Troglodyte (Cave Man)\\" by The Jimmy Castor Bunch. Sam Lansky of Time magazine called the song \\"breezy, catchy throwback soul [that] showed off her towering voice.\\" Following the release of the album, Billboard magazine ranked Grande at number four on their list of \\"Music's Hottest Minors 2013\\", an annual ranking of the most popular musicians under the age of 21. The second single, \\"Baby I\\", debuted at number 21 on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart, making it her second Top 40 hit. The song also debuted at number six on the US Billboard Hot Digital Songs chart, making Grande the only female music artist to debut two songs in the top 10 of the Hot Digital Songs chart during the year 2013. The third single, \\"Right There\\", featuring Detroit rapper Big Sean, debuted at number 84 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. In March 2016, Grande released \\"Dangerous Woman\\" as the lead single from the retitled album of the same name. The single debuted at number 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 and was Grande's seventh top 10 entry on that chart. She is the first person in the history of the Hot 100 to have the lead single from each of her first three albums debut in the top 10. The song later peaked at number 8 on the Hot 100. On March 12, 2016, Grande appeared as host and musical guest of Saturday Night Live, where she performed \\"Dangerous Woman\\" and debuted the promotional single \\"Be Alright\\", which she released on March 18. The song charted at number 43 on the Billboard Hot 100. Grande garnered positive reviews for her appearance on the show, including praise for her impressions of various singers, some of which she had done on The Tonight Show. Jonathon Dornbush of Entertainment Weekly wrote that Grande \\"not only nailed her musical performances, but also shone as the best part of some of the night's sketches\\", including a \\"shockingly good\\" Jennifer Lawrence impression, continuing, \\"Grande proved she could hold her own amongst the SNL players.\\" Stephanie Webber of Us Weekly praised Grande's Judy Garland scene as a cheeky, boozy starship commander. Grande won an online voting poll on Entertainment Weekly as the \\"best host of the season\\". In May 2016, among other appearances to promote the album, on The Voice season 10 finale, Grande performed the second single from the album, \\"Into You\\", which peaked at No. 13 on the Billboard Hot 100, and duetted with Christina Aguilera on \\"Dangerous Woman\\".
Grande released her third studio album Dangerous Woman on May 20, 2016; it debuted at number two on the Billboard 200, number one in the UK, number two in Japan, and number one in several other markets, including Australia, the Netherlands, Ireland, Italy and New Zealand. Nolan Feeney commented in Entertainment Weekly that Grande \\"pulls off pop, R&B, reggae, and house all without overextending herself or pandering to trends\\". Mark Savage, writing for BBC News, called the album \\"a mature, confident record\\". At the Summertime Ball at London's Wembley Stadium in June, Grande performed three songs from the album as part of her set. In August, Grande released a third single from the album, \\"Side To Side\\", featuring rapper Nicki Minaj, her eighth top 10 entry on the Hot 100, which peaked at number four on that chart. The song's music video has been viewed more than 1.3 billion times. The album and the title track were each nominated for 2017 Grammy Awards. As of June 2018, Dangerous Woman has spent a total of 100 weeks on the Billboard 200.
Grande began working on songs for the album with Pharrell Williams in 2016, but \\"the events in Manchester gave a hard reset to the project's expectations\\". On April 20, 2018, Grande released \\"No Tears Left To Cry\\" as the lead single from her fourth studio album, Sweetener, along with a music video for the song. The song debuted at number three on the Billboard Hot 100, where it became Grande's ninth single to reach the top ten in the United States and made her the only artist to have debuted the first single from each of her first four albums in the top ten of the Hot 100. She performed \\"No Tears Left To Cry\\" on the Tonight Show on May 1, where she revealed the title of the album, Sweetener.
The album was made available for pre-order on June 20, 2018, along with the promotional single \\"The Light Is Coming\\", featuring rapper Nicki Minaj. The album's second single, \\"God Is A Woman\\", was released on July 13, 2018. It peaked at number 8 on the Hot 100 and was Grande's 10th song to reach the top 10 on that chart. The album was released on August 17, 2018. Grande gave four concerts to promote the album, billed as The Sweetener Sessions, at New York City's Irving Plaza, The Vic Theatre in Chicago, Ace Theater in Los Angeles, and KOKO in London between August 20 and September 4, 2018. Sweetener debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 and received acclaim from critics. On January 3, 2019, it was announced that Grande will be headlining the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. She will be the youngest artist to ever headline the event and just the fourth female.
On November 3, 2018, Grande released \\"Thank U, Next\\" from her fifth studio album of the same name. The song reached number one in the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, Estonia, Finland, Greece, Ireland, Malaysia, New Zealand, Portugal, Singapore and South Korea.

Shortly after, Brooks accused Grande of cheating on him. Grande and her ex-boyfriend Jai Brooks dated again between January 2014 and July 2014. They broke up again after he allegedly was not supportive of Grande when her grandfather was dying. In August 2014, Grande began dating rapper Big Sean, who had been her friend for some time and was with Grande when her grandfather died.

A song dedicated to Davidson titled \\"Pete Davidson\\" is featured on Grande's fourth studio album, Sweetener. The two called off their engagement and ended their relationship in October 2018. Grande was raised Roman Catholic but abandoned Christianity after Pope Benedict said that everything she loved and believed in were sins, such as homosexuality and working women. She has since started following Kabbalah's teachings with her half brother Frankie, believing \\"the basis lies in the idea that if youre kind to others, good things will happen to you.\\"
In April 2019, following the release of a song titled \\"Monopoly\\" with Victoria Monét, Grande revealed that she doesn't label her sexuality, stating \\"I haven't before and still don't feel the need to now\\" amidst rumors of bisexuality after lyrics referencing her liking both women and men.

Ariana Grande began performing onstage when she was a child. Her involvement in a Broadway play at age 15, followed by some small TV parts, helped her land the role of Cat on TV's Victorious. She followed that with the spinoff Sam & Cat and then dove headfirst into a chart-topping musical career, releasing five albums: Yours Truly (2013), My Everything (2014), Dangerous Woman (2016), Sweetener (2018) and Thank U, Next(2019).
Grande was born on June 26, 1993, in Boca Raton, Florida, to Edward Butera, a graphic designer, and Joan Grande, a businesswoman. She took to singing and acting at a young age and made her way onto the local theater scene before she was a teenager. Her first big break came in 2008 when the 15-year-old landed the role of Charlotte in the Broadway production of 13, a play focusing on life growing up in New York City. The early role led to accolades, and Grande won a National Youth Theatre Association Award. Two years later, she appeared in the musical Cuba Libre and had a small role on a TV show called The Battery’s Down.
Grande landed her breakout role in the Nickelodeon series Victorious. Victorious was set at a performing arts high school, and Grande was cast as a goofy aspiring singer-actress named Cat Valentine. While busy with the show, Grande nevertheless pursued a musical career, making her first appearance on a record with the Victorious soundtrack. And in 2011, Grande released the single "Put Your Hearts Up," a pop song aimed at the hearts of her young Victorious audience. The show's devoted fan base voted VictoriousFavorite TV Show at the 2012 Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards. When Victorious went off the air in 2012, Grande's character Cat Valentine survived. She went to star in the Nick spin-off Sam & Cat, co-starring iCarly’s Jennette McCurdy. Sam & Catwasn’t on long when rumors began to swirl that Grande wasn’t particularly enjoying the experience, and the show came to an abrupt end after 35 episodes (2013-14).
'Yours Truly' & 'My Everything'
“The Way” was the first single from Grande’s debut album, Yours Truly, a record that also featured the hits "Baby I" and "Right There."

The 2014 release My Everything sold 169,000 copies in its first week, debuting at No. 1. The single “Problem,” featuring Australian rapper Iggy Azalea, preceded the album release and debuted at No. 3 on Billboard’s Hot 100, selling m...
"Bang Bang," "One Last Time"
During the summer of 2014, Grande teamed up with Jessie J and Nicki Minaj on the single “Bang Bang,” a track that debuted at No. 6 and peaked at No. 3 in the United States. The album spawned another hit single “One Last Time,” which reached number 13 on the US Billboard Hot 100. Grande had three hit singles from My Everythingon the Billboard chart at the same time.
In 2015 Grande released Christmas & Chill, a holiday album, and the single "Focus," which debuted at number seven on the Billboard's Hot 100. In February 2016, she released her third album Dangerous Woman, and the title track debuted at number 10 on the Hot 100 that March. She made music history with the track's success, becoming the first artist to have the lead singles from her first three albums debut in the Top 10. Dangerous Woman, which debuted at number two on the Billboard 200, also fe...
In 2017 Grande performed the title track for the soundtrack of the live action movie Beauty and the Beast. In February of that year, she began her Dangerous Woman tour across North America and then Europe. On May 22, 2017, tragedy struck after Grande finished a concert in Manchester, England and a suicide bomber detonated a bomb at the exit of the concert hall, killing 22 people and wounding 116, including many young adults and children. "All acts of terrorism are cowardly... but this attack stands out for its appalling sickening cowardice, deliberately targeting innocent, defenseless children and young people who should have been enjoying one of the most memorable nights of their lives," British Prime Minister Theresa Maysaid after the attack. The pop star responded to the horrific act on Twitter. Less than a day after the attack, Grande suspended her Dangerous Woman tour. She returned to Manchester 13 days after the attack to perform a benefit concert on June 4 for the bombing vic...
Among her many accolades, Grande has won six iHeartRadio Music Awards, five MTV Video Music Awards and three American Music Awards. She has also earned 12 Grammy nominations and one win.
The pop diva returned to television with a guest appearance on Scream Queens in 2015, and she hit the big screen in a cameo appearance in Zoolander 2 in 2016. She also starred as Penny Pingleton, Tracy Turnblad's best friend, in NBC's Hairspray Live!in December 2016. Grande has also become a popular host of Saturday Night Live, bringing her musical and acting talents to the show, including uncanny impersonations of fellow pop divas Britney Spears, Shakira, Rihanna, Celine Dion and Whitney Houstonin a skit spoofing the streaming service Tidal. In February 2020 Grande made a guest appearance on season 2 of Jim Carrey's Showtime series Kidding.
In addition to her musical and acting projects, Grande has launched two fragrances "Ari by Ariana Grande" and "Frankie by Ariana Grande" with her brother Frankie Grande.

She also has cultivated a massive social media presence on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat, and landed on Time magazine's list of "The 100 Most Influential People" in 2016.
Grande went public with her romance with her "The Way" collaborator Mac Miller in August 2016. The pair split in May 2018 after almost two years of dating. "I respect and adore him endlessly and am grateful to have him in my life in any form, at all times regardless of how our relationship changes or what the universe holds for each of us!" Grande posted on Instagram. On June 11, 2018, People magazine confirmed that the singer was engaged to SNL's Davidson, her boyfriend of several weeks. Subsequent attention focused on their affectionate social media posts directed at one another, though the couple found themselves in an awkward position when footage surfaced of Davidson making a joke about the Manchester concert bombing months earlier. Grande was devastated by Miller's death from an accidental drug overdose in September 2018, a development that seemingly impacted her relationship with Davidson.
