Ariana Grande: Madonna is strength, freedom and wisdom

For this week’s Billboard cover story, Lizzy Goodman chose to interview Ariana Grande and asked her to name five surprising role models. She chose Helena Bonham Carter, Freddy Krueger, India.Arie, Marlene Dietrich and of course… Madonna.

Here’s what she had to say…

She is strength, she is freedom, she is wisdom beyond anybody’s comprehension.

Grande was raised Catholic but states…

[I] departed from that and started practicing my own things when I was around 12 years old. As a fellow Kabbalist, I know how hard it is to exercise those tools in your everyday life. Especially in a world where everything is so egocentric and all you do is talk about yourself and promote yourself.

When Lizzy Goodman half jokes that the two should do a song together, she gushes…

Oh my God, my heart would stop.

Check out her latest single “Break Free”…

It’s not the first time Ariana Grande had positive things to say about Madonna…

February 2014 – V Magazine
I just love how she stands up for what she believes in and surprises people by not eff-ing up when they want her to so badly…
Know what I love most about Madonna?
When a bad review came out, she was the first person to say ‘f–k you.’
When someone said she sounded like Minnie Mouse, she crawled into bed naked except for Minnie Mouse ears.
It’s such a good attitude to have.
It’s inspiring to me because there are times when I think I’ve been a weak, people-pleasing little mouse my whole life.
