We loved her as Cat Valentine on the sitcom Victorious – now Ariana Grande is hotting up the charts with her catchy tune, The Way, featuring Mac Miller.

- The 20-year-old is been compared to pop great Mariah Carey. “It’s a compliment and an inspiration,” Ariana says. “Growing up, Mariah and Whitney Houston were my goddesses.”

- She’s rocking social media! Online publication The Huffington Post listed her as the “third-most influential actress online”. Ariana has more than three million Facebook fans, more than six million Twitter followers and four million-plus Instagram followers. Wow!

- Her debut album is due out in August and fans can expect a lot of honesty. “It’s like it used to be pages from my diary, but instead of keeping a diary I’d write songs about what was happening in my life. So it’s really personal.”

- She has a good heart. In 2009, as a member of the charity Broadway in South Africa, she performed and taught music and dance to children in Gugulethu township, Cape Town. The star also teamed up with tissue company Kleenex on its “Shield Sneeze Swish” campaign aimed at promoting the use of tissues to prevent colds from spreading.

- While she’s a hard worker, she makes sure she finds time to chill out. “Some of my favourite things to do in my free time is spend time with my friends, family and my dog,” she says. “And to play videogames and watch old movies.”
