You’ve been working on your album for three years. What’s taking so long!?
I’m a big perfectionist! I’m trying to channel super-confident women like Alicia Keys, Mariah Carey and Beyonce, because I realized that if you want something, you really have to go for it, just like they do.
On her confidence faltering when she was filming "Victorious":
I worked with someone who told me they’d never like me. But for some reason, I just felt like I needed her approval. So I stared changing myself to please her. It made me stop being social and friendly. I was so unhappy.
UPDATE: Grande posted the following message to her personal blog on June 25, which appears to be in response to the second quote the actress shared about "Victorious."
