Ariana Grande Wants To Remain A Role Model & "Lady" Despite What Miley Cyrus Thinks!

Her sweetness gives us cavities!

Ariana Grande is a sugary princess—and she wants everyone to know it!

Despite what Miley Cyrus said about corrupting the singer's image this week, Ari knows she'll never come close to the bad-assery that Mileybird possess!

In the new issue of Cosmo, Miz Grande confessed that she's sort of boring:

“I think I’m an old soul. What excites younger people doesn’t excite me… I’m kind of a boring, normal girl who likes Harry Potter and to sit in her pajamas and sing. A lot of my friends are partiers, but I’ve never really clicked with that. I like Barbra Streisand, and when was the last time you saw Babs getting, like, turnt up? That’s kind of the road that I, as a lady, would like to go down.”

Ain't no shame in the Streisand game—because Babs is a classy broad, and so are you!

Ariana also revealed that some people mistake her kind heart for weakness, but she's proud of what she's proven so far:

“I never really expected to be taken seriously as an artist, and it’s just been the ultimate, proudest achievement. I’ve dealt with a lot of people not knowing what to expect from me because of my age and my personality. People often mistake my kindness for weakness, and they didn’t expect much from me, because at the end of the day, I’m just a nice Italian girl from Boca.”

We know fans love her baby-doll cuteness…

So we say, keep up the timid fabulocity and slay the critics with your powerhouse voice!

    Oh she is going for lady-like? I thought she was going for the cutesy little-girl sexy look. The look that appeals to border-line pedophiles and creepy old men.

    That's great glad she not bowing to pressure and making a whore of herself. Rock on Ariana.

    And cue the pictures of her passed out in the passenger seat of a car in 3…2…

    If you want to be a lady then stop defending Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber.

    Re: rosebud99 – I agree. She relies way too much on the Lolita look of being sweet, innocent and sexy and it's uncomfortable. And frankly, I think she's very artificial. There's something not genuine about her. And I'm not being unfair, because she's probably the best true vocalist to appear on the scene, and she's obviously beautiful. But she seems so fake. That cute little "aw, shucks" routine is going to get old fast. And a lady doesn't have to state that she's a lady. Someone classy doesn't have to state that they're classy. She needs to stop trying to be adored by Tumblr girls who want to look like dolls and older men, because it's not going to get her that far in the long run.

    Re: Deana – You know, it doesn't really matter what you think. Ariana is genuine, and she really is an 'old soul'. She doesn't party hard, like Miley — she's just a good kid. It's not going to 'get old' because that is truly who she is. You won't see shit about her in the tabloids, because she won't be out doing stuff that gets her into trouble. Why can't people understand — some people are just into music, are old souls, and are just not into the 'celebrity' crap that goes on? Ariana has an amazing voice and understands what she is going after. Just give her some credit instead of beating her down…

    Re: fancypant66 – Who is beating her down? Saying shes the best singer and is beautiful is a compete compliment. But everything she does is very manufactured. The way she dresses, the way she talks in interviews, the way she poses on red carpets: it's all controlled and contrived. She doesn't have to party like Miley to be considered genuine. Miley is fake, too. Faker, actually. But Ariana ACTS like she is the most innocent person in the business, while coyly playing up the baby-doll look to be perceived as sexy while still trying to keep a younger audience. A sexy AND cute and practically perfect (because she's "just a nice Italian girl from Boca") young pop star with an out of this world voice? Literally too good to be true. She makes herself that way, and it's not an honest portrayal of herself. Someone can be an old soul and still have a insincere personality. What she's going after could come a lot faster if she was authentic, because she has the talent to take her there. Give her credit? Again, I said she has the best voice that's come along in a while and her album is really very good. I like Ariana as an artist. I like Ariana as an actress. But as a person, she's very unnatural in her persona. Learn the difference between "beating someone down" and stating a factual observation.

    Re: Deana – i thought it was just me. theres something about her i dont trust.

    Re: fancypant66 – She's changed since she got more famous too. She used to be really sweet and dress her age, but when people noticed her, she changed her look, the way she talked, and her music. I used to LOVEEEE her, but she's not the same girl who first was on Victorious. :(

    Thank heavens her goal is to NOT be another gutter slut like Miley. Not only is Miley one train wreck of a whore that will be in rehab within the next year but she is getting far too "butch" to appeal to most guys who want to take a FEMALE to bed. When I asked a guy friend if he would do her he said "hell no, I would be too afraid to she would put on a strap on and try to use it on me, I will stick to inviting FEMALES in my bed rather than questionable females like Miley"

    Insults aside, everyone is talking about MILEY'S ANTICS, not about her music. Everyone loves watching people implode, and THAT is what people find appealing about her, NOT her music. As for her "sex tape" new video, every female I have asked about it said "I just couldn't watch the entire video, made me too uncomfortable…in fact…I couldn't even appreciate the song because the video took away from it".

    Miley should WANT people to watch her videos that compliment her songs, to get them to BUY the song. The problem is, people don't want the song because the video just takes away from it.

    Liam made the best move of his life when he got rid of Miley. If he did mess around with January Jones, it was probably because he was so desperate to have sex with an actual FEMALE

    Re: anemov – Agreed!

    Re: Whitney – You have no way of knowing what her future will be, and she wasn't defending their bad acts, she was defending their right to make their own choices, the same way she has the right to make her own! Which means: "You don't get to tell anyone what to stop doing, because your not the boss of any of them!" The only time your voice counts for anything, is when it comes to what you choose to watch, or buy!

    Re: fancypant66 – Right about that!

    I like Ariana just fine the way she is, and more importantly, as long as she's getting what she likes and wants, it doesn't matter how anyone else feels about her style, sound, or persona. It should look like and sound like what SHE WANTS, no one here gets a vote in how she lives her life. If you are so bothered, THEN MOVE ON, and let her and her fan's have what they want, and get what your looking for some where else! You people don't run her life!
