Ariana Grande and Jessie J perform onstage during the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards at The Forum on August 24, 2014 in Inglewood, California. 

"Bang Bang" girlfriends forever.

Jessie J stood up for Ariana Grande when asked about the persistent diva rumors and the buzz that Grande is difficult to work with. Jessie J says it simply isn't true. 

"I always say, judge a person when you meet them," Jessie told Us Weekly when asked about the rumors. "I’ve met Ariana, and there’s a very thin line between 'diva' and 'survival.' And a lot of people can’t [differentiate that] -- and I’ve had that. I've had the diva stuff. And it’s when people can’t cope with how passionate you are, and how much you care."

That settles that?
