Ariana Grande Reacts to Diva Rumors [VIDEO]
It looks like those Ariana Grande diva rumors are back -- and this time, the singer is speaking out.
The 'Problem' singer has reportedly canceled numerous Australian photo shoots after one photographer refused to delete the photos he took of the singer during a shoot, a story which she refutes.
According to an Australian news site, Grande was involved in a shoot for a newspaper in which she was approving each photo that the photographer took, allegedly asking pictures to be deleted if she wasn't happy with them. The site reports that Grande was unhappy with how her shirt looked in one photo, and returned to her hotel room supposedly to change -- but never came back. Her rep insisted that all photos be deleted, and when the photographer refused, a member of Grande's security team reportedly tried to stop him while loading the equipment into his car. Grande then reportedly canceled the rest of her planned Australian photo shoots.
According to the news site, Grande had a long list of requirements during both photo shoots and interviews. During the shoots, the pop star reportedly only wanted to be shot from her left side (which could explain this awkward interview, during which she keeps turning her head away from the hosts) and won't be shot in natural light. As for the interview questions, reporters are allegedly instructed not to ask about dating (including relationships and ex-boyfriends), Mariah Carey, collaborating with Justin Bieber, 'Sam & Cat' and Jennette McCurdy, and her late grandfather.
However, the singer has spoken out on these rumors -- particularly concerning the photo shoot -- saying that she left to go change, but when she had come back, the photographer was gone.
"He came out with something that said all of these ridiculous, untrue things about me, and I'm just like, that's not real. That's nonsense," she explained to Aussie radio station the Edge in the video above. "My fans know who I am, my family knows who I am, my friends know who I am and that's all that matters."
