Ariana Grande is earning a reputation as a diva and although she denied the first set of rumors, more and more seem to be popping up.
A few weeks ago, E! reported that a photographer alleged that Grande was acting like a spoiled brat during a photo shoot.
He claimed that she would only let him photograph her from one side and had to check every photo to see if she liked it.
He also claimed that she complained about her outfit the entire time and even disappeared for a long period of time for what he thought was an outfit change. When she came back he said that her people asked him to hand over all the photos and said that the shoot was over.
Grande denied the rumors, but that didn’t stop them from spreading.
Around the same time, a reporter claimed that Grande was just as hard to interview as she was to photograph, and said that when she was willing to be interviewed, she had a list of demands and things that she was not willing to talk about.

Recently, Giuliana Rancic told E! that Grande’s behavior is nothing new and that she was acting bratty at the American Music Awards show earlier this year.
.“I remember, I think it was at the AMAs, she came up on the platform, and normally I stand on this side [her left side] to the camera,” she said. “I had to fight 13 years to get this side to the camera, it’s my good side, but I fought 13 years for this, ok.”
Adding, “Little Ariana comes over, I feel like ‘bing’, elbow in my side, I’m like, “What’s going on?” and they push me to the other side. So I had to be on my ugly side. But I felt like a little bit of a, you know it was like “you either get on the other side or we don’t do an interview,” and I just felt like it’s one thing if it’s Mariah, you know, I’ll get on any side, I’ll bend down, I’ll climb a ladder, whatever it takes to get Mariah to do an interview. But when you’re new on the block, when you’re trying to earn your stripes, you’re young, you just gotta do what you gotta do, try to get a great reputation, try to go overboard to please people.”
Grande seems to have a very sweet disposition in interviews, but could she be hiding her true colors? Grande is still young and she became famous fairly quickly. It could be that she is just trying to get used to all of the attention and learning how to handle difficult situations with the media.
Hopefully her attitude changes before she ruins her reputation early in her career.
