Discography Ariana Grande exhibits the following tropes: Action Girl: In the "Break Free" video. Award Bait Song: "Almost Is Never Enough" and "Tattooed Heart". Big "NO!": She is featured in a sketch on MTV's Nikki and Sara where she is hired to sing bad news to the duo's employees. After wanting to leave due to her feeling uncomfortable, she does this after the 2 girl's attempts to get her to stay, all in song, and ends with a regular spoken "no". You can view it here. Breakup Breakout: After Victorious ended, Cat got her own spin-off, whereas the rest of the cast are off of Nick. More importantly, this launched her music career into the stratosphere, and she's probably the biggest Nick star in more than a decade. Breakup Song: "You'll Never Know". Celeb Crush: Stated that her first celebrity crush was Justin Timberlake. Cry Cute: Let's face it, whenever Ariana cries whether it's in real life or on-screen, you can't deny wanting to give her a hug when she starts breaking down. The Cutie: She is adorable personified, even moreso in person. Disproportionate Retribution: In her song with Mika, Popular Song, Ariana turns Mika into a statue because he knocked over a block tower she made when they were children. Long time to hold a grudge. Emotionally Tongue Tied: "Baby I" is about not being able to find the right words to tell someone how much you love them. Fangirl: Of Mariah Carey, India.Arie, and Imogen Heap in particular. Fluffy Fashion Feathers: For a holiday concert in 2013, she wore a white mini Happy Holidays Dress trimmed with white feathers. Follow the Leader: She has been called a mini- Mariah Carey. Genre Throwback: Many of her songs are throwbacks to 90's R&B. Hartman Hips: Invoked this by accident when she said she had a "pear-shaped" body. Heavy Meta: "Piano" is an uplifting song meant to bring lovers together, which happens to be about Ariana wanting to write an uplifting song that brings lovers together. Heterosexual Life-Partners: Is this with fellow co-star Victorious Elizabeth Gillies. Hotter and Sexier: "The Way", her song with Mac Miller. It earned comparisons to Mariah Carey. Intercourse with You: "The Way". Not to mention "Bang Bang". It Is Pronounced Tro-PAY: Her name is actually pronounced "Are-ee-on-ah" rather than "Air-ee-on-ah". Melismatic Vocals Moral Guardians: Briefly had them after her after concept art for her first album went up- for those curious, this is what it looked like first, and what the cover will be now following fan backlash. Curiously, this cover was also thrown around. Ms. Fanservice: Like all the girls of Victorious. She's stated that she doesn't actually like trying to be sexy, however. ( Although her male fans believe she doesn't have to try.) Non-Indicative Name: "Grande" translates to "large". See Pint-Sized Powerhouse. Odd Friendship: With Mac Miller and the members of OFWGKTA. Oh, Crap: Had this reaction during a stream when Jennette accidentally revealed Ariana's phone number. And later on, she did it to herself. Fans had a collective Here We Go Again moment. Older Than They Look: She's 20, but still looks like a young teenager. Pep Talk Song: "Put Your Hearts Up". Mind you, she absolutely hates this song. Petite Pride: After tweeting a picture of Cat's excessive bra wardrobe including the 32A tag, she obtained ï¿½ and accepted ï¿½ the nickname Boobiana Petite. Pint-Sized Powerhouse: She's been nicknamed Little Red for a reason. The Scream: As see in , Ariana can definitely let out a bloodcurdling scream. Sam & Cat Self-Backing Vocalist: In her singing videos. Sequel Song: According to Word of God, "Right There" to "The Way". She's Got Legs: You bet. Shrinking Violet Silly Love Songs: "The Way", "Baby I", "Honeymoon Avenue", "Better Left Unsaid", "Tattooed Heart", "Lovin' It", "Daydreamin'", "Right There". Singing Voice Dissonance: Her regular speaking voice is very soft and girly, but when she sings, she sounds like this. Sophisticated as Hell: Apart from the Nikki and Sarah skit above, there's this. Speak of the Devil: She allegedly captured some demon faces on film while exploring a cemetery with her friends, and weird things keep happening around her, so she's afraid to share the photo lest it cause this to her fans. Spiritual Successor: In terms of her singing prowess, to Mariah Carey. Stage Name: Grande is only part of her real last name . note Surprisingly Gentle Song: "Tattooed Heart" and "Almost Is Never Enough". Teens Are Short: As Cat Valentine (in real life she's 21) - she stands at just five feet tall. Vocal Evolution: No, really. Her speaking voice has somehow grown deeper than it was early in , necessitating a switch to the more cartoony, babyish Cat Valentine voice we hear today. Victorious A Wild Rapper Appears: Mac Miller in "The Way". Big Sean in "Right There", "Best Mistake", and in the hook for "Problem". Iggy Azalea in "Problem". Nicki Minaj in the third verse of "Bang Bang". Childish Gambino about two-thirds of the way through "Break Your Heart Right Back" Woman of a Thousand Voices: She has several videos of her doing impressions, among those being Shakira and Judy Garland. Also, she's a voice actress. There's also the changing the pitch of her voice to play Cat Valentine.
