Ariana has admitted that she curses like a sailor. “I absolutely do. I’m Italian! I wish I could less. But I don’t know why people are so shocked by me. I guess it’s because of the character I played so long being such a goody two-shoes.”
Ariana was raised Catholic but says she stopped practicing because of the church’s stance on same-sex marriage. She also once went on an Instagram rant after someone made a homophobic comment about her brother on her page: “oh and also ‘that homo’ gets more ass than you’ll ever get in your life. k miss thing?”
Ariana has explained that her ubiquitous ponytail is due to most of her hair breaking off or falling out due to frequent dyeing for years on Victorious. She has tried wigs and a weave, but usually sticks to extensions.
Ariana believes that one of her exes cheated on her with a guy. Speaking of one of her songs, she’s said: It’s about a boy who cheats on a girl with another boy… It’s one of my favorites on the album, and it’s really funny because I believe it has happened to me. I’m not 100 percent positive, but I’m 99.9 percent positive.”
Ariana no longer has a relationship with her father. “It’s private, but it happened last year. It took me so long to be okay with it. The thing that got me there was embracing the fact that that I am made up of half my dad, and a lot of my traits come from him. So much of me comes from my father, and for so long, I didn’t like that about myself.”
Ariana believes in demons, as she told Complex magazine. “I used to have a folder called ‘Demons’ that had pictures with all the screencaps in it, but then weird things started happening to me so I deleted it.”
