Ariana Grande Talks About Abruptly Ending a Fan Meet & Greet

Ariana Grande Talks About Abruptly Ending a Fan Meet & Greet

Ariana Grande poses for some photos while making an appearance on the SiriusXM Hits 1 Morning Mash Up broadcast on Monday (August 25) in Los Angeles.

The 21-year-old singer made some headlines this week after the father of one of her biggest fan’s wrote a long blog post detailing a negative experience his daughter had meeting Ariana over the weekend.

The man claimed that the meet and greet, which his daughter won from an MTV contest, lasted no longer than 15 seconds and the few fans there were instructed not to interact with the singer.

Ariana has responded to the reports in a direct message on Twitter to a fan, that has since spread around online.

“A fan gave me a photo of me & my grandpa. I walked away because I didn’t want them to see me start to cry,” Ariana said. “I am still in mourning and I wrote a letter to have sent to her afterward but MTV told me they had already left. My heart is still healing and it’s moments like that that make it real again that he’s gone… wasn’t expecting it and [it] hit me like a ton of bricks.”

We hope that Ariana gets to have a proper meeting with the fan sometime soon!

10+ pictures inside of Ariana Grande at the radio station…

    I wish she would get an adult hairstyle. That hairstyle looks like it belongs on a teenager. Also she needs a stylist, she does not know how to dress like an adult.

  • girlfriend’00

    oh please!!

  • autumn roberts

    She looks like she’s such a promiscuous bitch in real life. I love her.

  • Christine

    The reason why she gets to be who she is today is because of the fans. We, fans, make her career. And it saddens me to see someone who was humble at first, become a diva with all her money and glam. Imagine if we, the fans, stopped listening to her music. She would be nothing. Those girls must have felt like they were nothing when she dashed out of there.

  • lol

    @guest: she looks like a w.hore

  • Lee

    Not to worry all these sluuuuuuuuuuuuuty twaaaaaaaaaats will be over soon

  • rio

    still totally unprofessional… and honestly sounds like BS

  • Ugh

    Most of y’all belong on the comment section of a gossip site because y’all probably don’t add anything positive to society. The girl is still in mourning. Get a freakin’ grip.

  • Chronus

    @Ugh,
    They are animals and this is what you get when you go to the zoo and enter the animal house, lots of f.eces throwing.

    They have no concept of what’s it like to mourn for a loved one.

  • Don’t like her

    @guest: She claims it’s because her hair fell out after dying it, but I guess she’s too stupid to know that pulling it back like that will make it fall out faster than anything.

  • Yeppers

    @autumn roberts: I’ve heard things….

  • leila

    She is lying

    She against makes it all about her.

  • Diedre

    @Lee: Yes, but sadly there will be a new, even worse, batch coming up behind them. It never stops.

  • Martinez

    Sean did a Total UPGRADE over that hideous frozen face wig wearing Naya.

    Have you even seen Ariana without make-up?

  • Get over it

    @guest: Its her body, and her style, and she can make it what ever SHE wants it to be. Everyone else gets to do their thing, like it or not, she will too. You can always go look at something or someone else. But this is one area that is totaly up to her, and doesn’t have to change until she is ready to! The people who get so hung up on that, are the types who want to have more say in the matter than they get to have. Face it you never will!

  • Guest

    @toplel: Its not BS, its her truth, and since you could never walk a day in her shoes, you are in no position to tell what is or isn’t a fact in her personal life. Only she can speak on what may be going on, and how it feels to her!

  • Guest

    @autumn roberts: You need glasses, if you think you can know that much about her personal life, just by looking at her smh!

  • Guest

    @Christine: Yes fan’s helped her career, but if its true that a photo of her grandfather upset her, and she needed to step away to take care of herself, where’s the crime in that! The problem with fan’s is that they become selfish, and forget that even with all the good that’s happened in her career, she’s still human. She still has things in her personal life, like the death of a loved one, to deal with. That isn’t an easy thing, and it doesn’t just go away over night. It also doesn’t mean that she’s not humble, just because she needs to step away and gather herself.

    Imagin if artists stopped taking care of themselves & their own needs, putting everyone else first. That’s not healthy for anyone, and they wouldn’t be able to go on with anything in their lives. Ariana isn’t just a face on the TV, or a voice on the radio. If you can’t be understanding of her grief, then there’s something wrong with you, because that attitude is very very cold! Its just cold and selfish!

  • Guest

    @lol: No she doesn’t!

  • Guest

    @Lee: NO she won’t be gone soon, she has a long future ahead of her. You sound mad! Not surprised!

  • Guest

    @rio: Clearly this applys to you also

    “They are animals and this is what you get when you go to the zoo and enter the animal house, lots of f.eces throwing.”

    “They have no concept of what’s it like to mourn for a loved one.”

  • Guest

    @Ugh: I know RIGHT! Clearly they still have some growing up and some living to do, themselves. My mom lost her parents year ago, and all it takes is, a funny memory, or a song and she’s all in tears. And she’s a grown ass woman, Ariana’s only 21, and her grandfather was such a big part of her life. People ca be so damn cold and heartless sometimes.

  • Guest

    @Don’t like her: Clearly NOT for everyone! I’ve known plenty of women to do it, and their hair is just as thick as ever! It kills me how badly others want to tell her, her business. But at the end of the day, its still “Her hair, her style, and her life” to make as she chooses! Go run your own!

  • bianca

    you guys shes LYING shes been doing this since 2011 remember when alex Deleon called her the rudest person he’s ever met? she thinks shes beyonce or something and shes cocky and vain and thinks shes some angel. her “fans” see her as CAT and they still do. she used cat to gain a fandom and now shes still trying to portray herself that way even til this day. shes trying to be like miley and “fall back” whilst still having cats personality. don’t let her fool you kick this bitch out of the industry and let Victoria justice take over

  • Guest

    @Yeppers: But smart people know not to believe everything they hear, and only half of what they see! Guess that smart person’s not you!

  • Guest

    @leila: No she’s not, if you live long enough to lose someone you love, maybe then you’ll have some understanding of what she’s feeling.

    If you have loved, and lost, and you still don’t get it, then your just cold and heartless!

    “LoL’

    Had her grampa sacrificed in her quest for MOAR. Gimme, gimme MOAR. MOAR. gimme, gimme MOAR.

    And the cunning little girl took her fan bamboozled little sister to meet her idol, and she handed her the drawing and told her sister to snap a picture while telecommunicating, “I Know What You Did to Papi.”

  • moo moo bees

    @Diedre:

    LOL.

    It’s sad, actually.
