Bursting into pop music after her role as Cat Valentine in the Nickelodeon series Victorious, Ariana Grande is quickly becoming one of the most admired female pop vocalists on the planet, not only because her voice but also the charming and goofy persona she often lets shine through her TV appearances, like on SNL and most recently NBC’s live broadcast of Hairspray. But the road to stardom hasn’t been all bubble gum and booty shakes. Grande was turned down for a White House gig because of a July 2015 scandal when she licked other people’s donuts and said "I hate America” in a donut shop in Lake Elsinore, California. While the singer/actress says the comment was to make a point about healthy eating the controversy hasn’t exactly tarnished her reputation as she still remains the fourth most followed person on Instagram and continues to pack out arenas across the U.S. On tour in support of her latest album, Dangerous Woman, Ariana Grande's definitely one of the biggest names to roll through Alamo City this year.
