** In only 6 days after she released her debut album, it hit #1 in the country, holding off competition from Tamar Braxton and Nine Inch Nails. [[IKnewIt We so called it]]. More impressively, what was expected to be a very close race between the three albums ended up with Ariana having strong lead over Braxton's #2 album, larger than the one ''she'' had over Nine Inch Nails.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: "Thank U, Next" had several different opening verses prepared covering all kinds of relationship statuses. At the time, Ariana was in a very turbulent relationship with [[Series/SaturdayNightLive Pete Davidson]] and had no idea where they would be when the song was released (broken up, as it turned out).

Added DiffLines:

** Arguably, ''thank u, next'' is this too. Written and recorded in the months following Mac Miller's death, her break-up with Pete Davidson and being publicly groped by the bishop at Aretha Franklin's funeral, it's the most open and personal we've seen Ariana so far.


* {{Corpsing}}: When performing "Thank U, Next" on ''Ellen'', one part of the choreography had her getting up on a chair. She slipped off the chair and yelped "oh my God!" but kept on with the song - audibly chuckling as she sang the next couple of lines.



* FandomRivalry: Oddly enough with her own co-star Creator/JennetteMcCurdy. What doesn't help are the rumors that they didn't get along backstage which contributed to ''Series/SamAndCat'''s cancellation.
** Her fanbase does ''NOT'' get along with [[Music/MariahCarey the Lambs]]. This is mainly due to Ariana fans seeing her as a SpiritualSuccessor to Mariah Carey ([[BlatantLies or flat out refusing to acknowledge the similarities between the singers, despite Ariana admitting that Mariah influenced her]]) while Mariah's fanbase sees her as an [[{{Expy}} annoying knock off]] of their favorite singer.
* FriendlyFandoms: Ariana's fans get along with Music/TheWanted's fanbase pretty well since Ariana and Nathan began dating.
* HiccupHijinks: [[https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.reddit.com/r/ArianaGrande/comments/51032t/the_time_i_met_ariana_at_a_meetngreet_and_she_had/ During an after concert meet and greet gathering]] she apparently contracted a case of hiccups that went on for at least 40 minutes.
* IWantYouToMeetAnOldFriendOfMine:
** The music video for "One Last Time" features ''Series/{{Victorious}}'' co-star Matt Bennett.
** The voice of one of the news reporters you hear in the beginning of the same video is her ''Victorious'' co-star Elizabeth Gillies.
** Gillies, Bennett and Daniella Monet from ''Series/{{Victorious}}'' also appear in Ariana's "Thank U, Next" video.
* MemeticMutation: Because of Ariana's rather youthful appearance, a lot of people have joked that she looks 12.
** At the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show in London, during a performance of one of her songs, she gets hit by a model's angel wings. Ariana's reaction to being hit has already gone viral. Here are a few examples: [[http://www.bustle.com/articles/52012-ariana-grandes-victorias-secret-reaction-face-is-meme-worthy-gold-so-youre-welcome-memes]], [[http://mashable.com/2014/12/03/ariana-grande-victorias-secret-fashion-show/]]



* SugarWiki/SheReallyCanAct: As it says in the main article, many people are surprised that she ''started out'' as a Broadway and television actress, having started out in an ''Theatre/{{Annie}}'' production as the title character among other things.

* TastesLikeDiabetes: Another reason for her [[CreatorBacklash distaste]] for "Put Your Hearts Up." It didn't go to waste, though, as some of her fans still speak highly of it.
* TryingNotToCry: During a concert, she almost started to break down and weep during her performance of "Honeymoon Avenue" (The subject matter was ringing a bit close to home for Ariana as she had just broken up with her boyfriend Jai (pronounced "Jay") Brooks). You can view it [[http://youtu.be/32rVxVXdZ58?t=4m13s here]].
** She also had difficulty getting through her performance of [[Film/TheWizardOfOz "Over the Rainbow"]] at the 2017 concert for Manchester.

* DyeingForYourArt: Dyed her hair red for ''Victorious'' as the character Cat. And dark black for a correspondingly dark & gothic video clip. After ''Sam & Cat'' ended, she has reverted back to being a brunette. In late 2017, she dyed her hair silver.

** Not a direct example, but she'd appeared a few times on ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'', and had been shown interacting with cast member Pete Davidson in a promo clip (and the actual show of course) before they finally got engaged.

* OneOfUs: Don't let her sudden pop credentials fool you: Ariana hasn't forgotten about her roots in musical theater. Since she made her debut in ''13'', she also made a surprise appearance at a cabaret performance by the show's songwriter Jason Robert Brown, and played Penny in the NBC broadcast of ''Theatre/{{Hairspray}}''.

Added DiffLines:

* CreatorRecovery: ''Sweetener'' serves as this due to Ariana recovering the trauma she suffered after the Manchester Arena bombing, her then-ongoing relationship with Music/MacMiller, which ended during the end of the album's production and then her new relationship with Pete Davidson, which she recorded a song about him just before the album was sent for mixing.

** She admitted that she wasn't always fond of her red hair, which she had to dye for ''Victorious''. Specifically, what was at first a very simple dye-job ended up resulting in a complicated bleaching procedure which not only took hours of additional prep but eventually ''destroyed her hair'' to the point where she had to wear a wig even off the set while her hair recovered (for example, any appearances outside of her Cat role with red hair was likely with the wig). Consequently she wore a red wig for the Cat role (rumor has it this was even a contractual condition for her to continue her role as Cat).
