Ariana Grande Says Celebs Are Totally Cool With Her Impressions
"When I met Celine she told me ... ‘When I saw you, I peed!'" Grande tells Elvis Duran.
Ariana Grande likely earned herself some new fans following her hosting stint on Saturday Night Live over the weekend, which was notable primarily for her excellent range of impressions, including Britney Spears, Celine Dion and -- most viral-y -- Jennifer Lawrence.
In an interview with Elvis Duran and the Morning Show on Tuesday (March 16), Grande discussed her Saturday Night Live experience, pulling double-duty as host and musical guest.
"I had the most fun in my whole entire life," she shared. "It was really fun. It was one of the most exhausting and overwhelming weeks of my life, but every single moment was so much fun and I had the best time.”
When asked if celebs are insulted by her dead-on impressions, Grande shared that they took it in the fun spirit it was intended. "No, no, no! When I met Celine she told me, she was like, ‘When I saw you, I peed!'"
When it comes to her music, Grande said that's how she best expresses herself. "I think it’s a lot easier to sing or write about things that are personal than it is to simply answer a question about them. … I feel like I have more control over how I’m expressing myself. I feel like it’s almost like having a conversation with a friend. When you write a song about someone, it’s like, 'This is exactly what I’m feeling,' as opposed to when you’re asked a question by someone else, you feel a little more put on the spot. You know there’s the question of ‘Is my music too personal?’ Does that cause drama or something? But I would much rather it be personal and be an honest reflection of where I’m at than sacrifice my honesty and integrity in my music."
