Ariana Grande is a star on the rise, but the songbird says she's not a diva, despite recent rumors that her ego has exploded exponentially in Australia.
The 21-year-old "Bang Bang" singer is the subject of some interesting reports from Down Under, including one claiming she stormed off the set of a photo shoot.
"It does suck," Grande said of the "totally untrue and annoying" rumor mill.
There were also reports of Ariana Grande diva demands that would make Mariah Carey shudder ... one such demand was that she not be asked about Carey.
Or Justin Bieber. Or dating Big Sean. Or Sam & Cat, or Jennette McCurdy, or basically anything not totally vanilla. She also reserved the right to delete photos of her.
So the rumors say, anyway. She denies it's true, telling 96.1 The Edge:
"It was just a photographer or something who got mad at me because I left to change my outfit mid photo shoot because I didn't like my top."
"I was like, 'Oh, I'll be right back!' and then I came back and he had left.'
"I was like, 'Oh, s--t!' And then he came out and said all these ridiculous untrue things about me. I was like, 'That's not real. That's nonsense!'"
"My fans know who I am, my family knows who I am, my friends know who I am, and that's all that matters," Grande said of dealing with such things.
"No matter what you do, no matter what your profession is, no matter how old you are, everybody deals with haters. We could talk about it for hours..."
"[Gossipers] are also people who don't necessarily know you or understand you or who you are. They're also judging an inaccurate depiction of you."
Scooter Braun, who manages Grande and Justin Bieber, also weighed in via Twitter, calling Ariana "kind, caring, and [more than anything] a great human being."
"Some people make up rumors for a living... so saying things about Ari comes with her now being a big star. But saying she isn't a good person that ain't gonna fly."
"Just yesterday she did an impromptu meet and greet for her fans that almost got her kicked out of her hotel after a 14 hour work day. Why? Because she knows u care so she does too."
"There is Zero truth to anything different. Enough is enough."
