Ariana Grande swears she's not a diva.

There have been several reports recently suggesting otherwise -- Buzzfeed has a good run down of the alleged behavior, which involves being rude to contest winners and also (Paging Mariah Carey!) being highly controlling about how and when she is photographed. [Insert joke about having a 'Problem' here.]

Friendly reminder, however: Only women in Hollywood get called out for being too "controlling" about their image.

Regardless, fans have begun questioning the 21-year-old about whether she's, you know, a difficult person or not, so on Tuesday night, Grande unleashed a long Twitter explanation seemingly defending herself and sending love to her haters, as you do. She even quotes Rent! 

The message stream falls in line with the kind of advice she regularly gives teens on Twitter/Instagram when they write to her about dealing with "haters" in their own life.

To borrow parlance from another star, haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate.
