8. She’s been vegan for a long time!

Ariana is a vegan, and has been since 2013. Speaking about her decision, she told The Mirror in the past: “I love animals more than I love most people, not kidding. But I am a firm believer in eating a full plant-based, whole food diet that can expand your life length and make you an all-round happier person.”

So you may have known that Ari was quite a pint-sized popstar, but she’s pretty tiny at just 5ft.

10. Also known as… 

Ariana is known to us as Ariana Grande, however her full surname is a little longer. She’s actually Ariana Grande-Butera, which is a double-barrell or her mother’s surname and her father’s (Butera). We actually think Ariana Butera has a pretty good ring to it too!
