While fame offers a plethora of blessings, there are always plenty of drawbacks as well, and Ariana Grande is figuring out how to deal with the drama one day at a time.

In her new interview with V Magazine, the “Right There” songstress declares, “That’s what I am learning right now, that I have to become stronger in this industry.”

“I’ve learned over the past year that you don’t have time to chase after every person who doesn’t understand you. The people that know me know that I’m a nice girl. My fans know that I’m a nice girl. My friends know that I’m a nice girl. And ultimately, that’s all that matters.”

Ms. Grande also discusses her recent decision to go vegan- “In America, almost everybody thinks you need to have meat for protein. Protein, protein, protein! And what’s in dairy? Calcium, calcium, calcium. It’s those kinds of proteins that latch onto the insides of your bloodstream and make it easier for you to have a heart attack.”

“Look, cows produce milk with nutrients for cows. Maybe that’s why Americans end up looking like cows!… Ultimately, no one wants cow t*t pus in their food, do they?”

As for the constant comparisons to Mariah Carey, Ariana explains, “I mean, it’s a huge compliment, But when you hear my entire album, you’ll see that Mariah’s sound is much different than mine.”
