Ariana Grande ‘overheard saying she hoped her fans would all f***ing die’
Ariana Grande is fast getting a reputation for being a bit of a diva.
But she looks set to be subjected to another torrent of criticism after it was claimed she said she hoped her fans would ‘f***ing die.’
The 21-year-old singer is said to have come out with the astonishing statement while visiting a New York radio station in the summer.
An industry insider told the New York Daily News: ‘She did autographs and pics and was all smiles until she got into the elevator, ‘And as soon as the doors shut she said, “I hope they all f***ing die.“‘
Her unfortunate alleged choice of words comes on the back of other claims the young pop ainger is getting too big for her boots.
The Florida favourite caused much wailing and gnashing of teeth when she walked out on a meet-and-greet in Australia, supposedly because she did not appreciate how she was being photographed.
Her guys are said to have told the photographers, ‘Don’t use natural light‘ and ‘Do shoot only from the left side of her face.‘
Ariana’s entourage were also reported to have told Australian reporters they were not allowed to ask her about dating, her disastrous Nickelodeon show, a rumoured collaboration with Justin Bieber and, perhaps most bizarrely of all, comparisons to Mariah Carey.
E’s Giuliana Rancic gleefully piled in after her problems in Australia by claiming the singer was hard to work with at last year’s AMAs.
The saucy TV host claimed Ariana Grande nudged her out the way so the camera would get her ‘good side.’
She said: ‘I just felt like it’s one thing if it’s Mariah. 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.’
She is also said to have been ‘a total nightmare’ earlier this month at a Stand up to Cancer event in Los Angeles and on Monday refused to have individual snaps taken with fans who had paid $495 to have their photo taken with her.
