Sorry I’ve not been around for awhile (again XD!) but just wanted to post a bit about my hands-d0wn most favorite “new” artist and actually she’s not new at all but just new to me is all 😀 . And also note that I don’t get nearly enough music-radio into my diet so here I’m very late to the party so to speak….as in….
…Ariana’s~♡ been so
awesome for so long now &
yet I’m only falling in love
with her now? =P!
So I had just awoken @ about 6 am or so a couple of Saturdays ago and while my brain hadn’t awoken fully just yet I tend to routinely channel surf for anything mind stimulating before getting out of bed as sort of a weekend routine of mine~.
And there she was….on an actual VIDEO COUNTDOWN , I Mean who knew such a thing still existed lol =P on VH1 and in my weak defense I grew up in my pre-teens as a total music video junkie~♥ with non-stop all day music videos you know how MTV the original would air them and I’d come to believe that it had all become reality shows and the like since so naively I never bothered at all with those stations in recent times. Any-who it’s apparently a weekly MUSIC VIDEO COUNTDOWN!! so of course I was immediately brain-alive and wide awake within just moments and the very first video playing was Ariana Grande’s~♥ single “Problem” which features a very cool rap by Iggy Azalea and I just love how the guy is whispering in the amazing chorus….”I got one less problem without ya…” really works with the whisper adding a most sensual touch~*! + it’s pop/Jazzy cool with that infectious reoccurring brass-riff!
But REALLY it’s Ariana’s~♥ voice!!!!!! She’s truly gifted with an amazing range, tone and a natural knack for those sexy nuances! So I went onto itunes and purchased her album and on numerous other tracks Ariana actually channels one Mariah Carey with her vocal range and at times she even sounds very much like her which is amazing~!! And being tiny myself you know I’m all for the little people and Ariana @ 5 feet definitely makes the grade for tiny and yet powerfully talented~*.

And “Problem” is beyond catchy!!! To put into prospective: It’s awesome like Justin Timberlake singing that duet with Michael Jackson-catchy!…a higher tier of awesomeness!~!
I also highly recommend her single “Put your hearts up” which is UBER~CATCHY♥!!!!, her album “Yours Truly” along with her mini Christmas album which includes a very cute version of that classic “Last Christmas” which we all LOVE right?! And so if you heard a crazy person listening to Christmas music in their car during the month of June it was probably me =P.
~Love Never Felt so Good (mv)~
And as Captain Obvious would indulge,
…watching Justin♥ is never a bad thing!!!! YUM!
(Sorry got sidetracked there for a moment~* =P.)
So digging a bit deeper into her already most accomplished career, Ariana Grande also has starred in a couple of hit sitcom shows on the Nickelodeon channel including her most recent series “Sam and Cat” and while it’s now notably on “hiatus/cancellation?” due to a not so pleasant exchange from her used to be? co-star on that show where some not so nice things were said via Twitter towards Ariana and let’s just say it may have involved something to do with their contracts and unequal pay there or perhaps a leaked photo of said co-star (not buying the latter though….) however I’m not going to get into any more of that here.
let’s watch a few fan clips/live clips of this star ~*~~* on thE RISE!
~Ariana Grande “Problem” on The Ellen Show~
And right from the very beginning that brass~riff is jazzy-pop-crazy-catchy! Awesome performance with Ariana bringing the sexy hot overload with the voice of an angel!!
~Ariana Grande “Put your hearts up” (mv)~
This one’s getting the most played ipod treatment right now too! Deliciously~addictive song and like “Problem” it’s one of those songs which is readily lovable from the very first listen…really trust me 😀 . Also did you catch the “4 Non Blondes” vocal riff which is most prominent here?? No? It’s that “…hey yeah yeah yeah” part where the melody is very reminiscent of their classic song “What’s Up.” Really, try playing that part of each song back to back….it’s pretty uncanny.
(Note though something is wrong with the video here as it totally freezes about midway through for some reason =(..if anyone finds a non freezing version please do tell!!)
edit: Okay I found a Dailymotion video which works 😀 !

~Ariana Grande “The Way” & “Problem” @ the iHeart Radio Music Awards~
Love how they even recreated her mv stage here too…albeit they’re steps =P!
~Ariana Grande funny moments~
You gotta love the whole chicken bit here with late night with Jimmy Kimmel, her I almost pulled a Beyonce on stage, lots of random goodness & what about her Japan appearance where she’s gifted a whole lotta H~Kitty♥ goodies and when she put that thing on her head it was the best 😀 !
~Ariana Grande, her White House Performance~
And when you’re invited to sing for the President and the First Lady, okay very awesome!!! A wonderful tribute to Whitney Houston, gone much too soon =(. And secondly her performance of her song “Tattooed Heart”….can U say Doo Wop 50’s LOVE.
~Ariana Grande “Last Christmas”~
I’ve always loved this song♥! and Ariana definitely does it justice!! Funny it’s one of those songs which makes me feel happy and yet its lyrics are so melancholy =P….of course the original is amazing too!
Ariana Grande~♥ your talent rules and you’re most adorable and funny too =D.
