Ariana Grande Butera, aka Ariana Grande, doesn’t need a special introduction. Her stellar career and fame precede her. From her very first song to her latest hit, Ariana has never failed to capture hearts. Over the years, the young star has curated a unique style of her own, evolving to be a style icon as well. Ariana is not a stranger to the taste of success and popularity. Here’s everything you need to know about this young celeb, whose tryst with success is indeed a matter of intrigue.
Ariana Grande kicked off her musical career with her very first song, “Put Your Heads Up,” in 2011. The song won the hearts of thousands, clearing a path for her in the industry. However, it was after the release of her first studio album, “Yours Truly,” in 2013, that Ariana became unstoppable. Even before the wave of success passed, Grande got to work on her second album, which she released in 2014. By now, “success” had become a familiar term for the star. Her burgeoning fame shot up even more after her superhit album “Dangerous Woman,” which was released in 2016. Even today, Ariana’s popularity is intact and growing with each passing day.
Ariana’s personal life includes quite a few interesting chapters. First and foremost being her relationship with her father, Edward Butera. Ariana was very young, approximately nine years old when her parents divorced. The divorce was hard on her. She spoke about the relationship for the first time in 2014 in an interview. She confessed that she and her father were not on speaking terms then. She also said it was because of something that happened last year, but she could not talk about it because it was private. Grande also admitted that it was difficult for her to be where she is because her father, Edward, is responsible for half of her success. After a couple of years, when a question of “Mommy or Daddy” was aimed at her, she said, “Mommy, but I love my dad.” They had apparently gotten along by that point, but Ariana claims they didn’t see much of each other because he lives in Florida. In 2017, though, she posted a picture with her father of the time when she was a baby for Father’s Day. It definitely melted the hearts of her fans. Contradicting the action, Ariana released a song in 2018 called “Thank you, Next,” which had two lines of lyrics addressing the drama between her and her father. The lyrics read, “One day I’ll walk down the aisle, holding hands with my mama, thanking my dad, because she grew from the drama.” Following this was another Father’s Day post by Ariana. In 2019, Ariana made an appearance at the Grammys with Edward Butera, her father. Fans could predict that things were better between the duo as she also changed the previously mentioned lyrics to “thanking my dad, cause he’s really awesome.” In 2020, too, Ariana Grande showed up at the Grammys with her father, but this time, her mother also accompanied them.
Ariana Grande’s first known relationship is with Graham Philips. So apparently we are not the only ones to fall for him. They dated in 2008 and wrote a song together called “Stick Around.” Grande and the Riverdale star called it quits in 2011, but according to sources, they remained friends. This was followed by an on-again, off-again relationship with the then-popular Jai Brooks. They dated for almost a year in 2012 but ended it on a bad note with tweets exchanged against each other. But, surprisingly to the fans, they got back together in 2014 and broke up again after four months. Ariana dated Nathan Sykes from the band The Wanted in 2013 when her and Brooks’ breakup was still going on. It was a small, lasting relationship, and Grande and Sykes were together only for a few months. In October 2014, Ariana started dating Sean. During this period, they were also spotted smooching at the premiere of a movie. They have also sung songs together like “Best Mistake.” They called it quits after almost 10 months of their relationship and gave a joint statement saying that they remained friends after that. This was followed by the relationship that was the focus of all news segments: Ariana Grande and Mac Miller. They began dating in 2016 after recording the song “The Way” together. They never took a step back from displaying their love for each other. Unfortunately, they broke up two years later. Even after splitting up, Ariana expressed her extreme respect and gratitude toward Malcolm. A few months later, Mac Miller passed away due to an overdose. A lot of drama surrounded this incident as some people started blaming Ariana for it. She, being the good person she is, took to Instagram to write, “I adored you from the day I met you when I was nineteen, and I always will. I can’t believe you aren’t here anymore,” she wrote. “I really can’t wrap my head around it. We talked about this. so many times. I’m so mad, I’m so sad, I don’t know what to do. You were my dearest friend, for so long, above anything else.
After Miller, she was in a serious relationship with Pete Davidson. They were quick to recognize the bond they shared. They got engaged only a few weeks after this but suddenly broke off their engagement in October 2018. Arianna’s dating life, on the other hand, had a very happy ending. Ariana Grande and Dalton Gomez were first seen kissing in a bar in February 2020. When she released the song “Stuck with You” with co-singer Justin Bieber, fans found out that Dalton and Grande were enjoying their quarantine together. In December 2020, she announced their engagement. A few months later, they had a very private wedding with less than 20 people in attendance.
