One source claims the 18-year-old was actually bullied for being there -- apparently not everyone thought she earned the right to walk the shows!
The insider spilled:
There’s no doubt that Ariana Grande has a standout style, 'specially for a 20-year-old!
While we firmly believe in evolution, the stunning songstress would rather keep it old-fashioned classy than risk a change right now. And she has no problem defending it!!
In a post to Twitter on Sunday night, she wrote:
"i'll change up my style when i'm ready to, enjoyin the last of my retro phase. more important things like this musicccc, stu for the night"
It's great that she's vocal enough to stand up for herself! But we also know what magic this gurl is capable of, so obvi we want to see her grow as an artist.
Sigh. It’s cheesy, but the truth! Style is just as essential as talent if you want to not only be an artist, but a legit superstar in the industry!
Just take a look at Madonna — she completely embraced reinvention and she's still a QUEEN!
Also, you don't have to look skimpy to have a more mature style. Ariana's got a bright future, and we just can't wait to see her WERK it!
Ch-ch-check out a glimpse of Ariana's style in the gallery (below)!
