Giuliana Rancic has branded Ariana Grande a “diva” following their run-in at a recent award show.
The TV personality recalled the time she was set to interview Ariana at the AMAs red carpet,- but what she wasn’t expecting was the rudeness and arrogant attitude that came her way when the newcomer arrived.
Rancic explained during a recent taping of E! News that Grande pushed her to the left side because Ariana reportedly wanted to be interviewed while she was standing on the right.
Read in full what Giuliana had to say:
“I don’t know if that’s just part of the image she wants out there, like ‘I’m a young Mariah, I’m a diva,’ because I remember, I think it was at the AMAs, she came up on the platform, and normally I stand on this side [her left side] to the camera — I had to fight 13 years to get this side to the camera, it’s my good side, but I fought 13 years for this, OK?
Little Ariana comes over, I feel like BING, elbow in my side, I’m like ‘what’s going on?’ and they push me to the other side. So I had to be on my ugly side. But I felt like a little bit of a, you know it was like ‘you either get on the other side or we don’t do an interview,’ and I just felt like it’s one thing if it’s Mariah, you know, I’ll get on any side, I’ll bend down, I’ll climb a ladder, whatever it takes to get Mariah to do an interview.
But when you’re new on the block, when you’re trying to earn your stripes, you’re young, you just gotta do what you gotta do, try to get a great reputation, try to go overboard to please people.”
Wow! There have been so many reports coming in, claiming that Ariana Grande is one of the most difficult people to work with in Hollywood, and she’s not even a respect artist at this point in her career. As Giuliana mentioned, had she been demanded to stand on the left side by Mariah, there wouldn’t have been an issue because it’s Mariah.
But for a former Nickelodeon starlet who is only two albums into her career to be so arrogant and disrespectful is definitely starting to rub a lot of people the wrong way. Oh, and let’s not forget that infamous letter by a fan that explained the rude behaviour she felt during her encounter with Ariana during the VMAs.
