VMAs 2016: Frankie Grande Talks Ariana's Transition Into a 'Dangerous Woman'

Ariana Grande's half-brother, Frankie Grande, does a great job of standing in his own spotlight. The colorful and charismatic dancer, YouTube Personality, and Celebrity Big Brother star paves his own path -- though that's not to say he isn't proud of the one his sister is successfully strutting down. 

"I'm proud of her because she is really standing up for women," he told Billboard on the white carpet at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday night (Aug. 28). "To see her make that transition to woman -- and now dangerous woman -- I'm just so proud to be her brother."

As for Ariana's VMAs performance of "Side to Side" with Nicki Minaj, he said it -- and its newly arrived video -- illustrate her growth and newly-turned corner.
