The Popdust Files: ariana grande, selfies

Ariana Grande is opening up about her life—talking selfies, insecurities, fans and heartbreak over her fractured relationship with her dad.

The 21-year-old spills all in a new interview with Seventeen magazine—and Popdust has the 411.

On selfies
Everybody makes up these ridiculous captions for their selfies that have nothing to do with the picture, like ‘Layin’ in bed on Saturday.’ It’s like, No, you are not!  You just spent an hour getting ready for this picture! We all post a selfie for the same reason—because we feel better about ourselves than usual.  So just be like, ‘Hey, I feel good about myself today, so here’s a picture!’

On insecurities
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 I’m at a point in my life where love is the most important thing, and I won’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 they’re always asking me if they can have the songs that didn’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 it because they love it!

On toughest thing she’s 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.
