No subject seemed to be off-limits, as she opened up about everything from getting over her insecurities to the biggest lesson she’s learned in the past year.
Besides getting candid in her interview, Ariana looks amazing in her selfie-themed photos. Makes total sense, seeing as she’s the reigning selfie queen of Instagram!
Read her four best quotes from the interview:
On putting herself out there:
“It’s tough to spend some of the most important years of your life in front of so many strangers who want to pick you apart. Insecurity has been the hardest thing I’ve had to overcome. I think everyone my age struggles with that because everyone strives for approval and wants to feel loved.”
The biggest lesson she’s learned:
“Being okay with not having the answers to everything. I feel like for the first time in my life, I’m really okay. I used to freak out about everything all the time. I used to be like, ‘Oh my God, somebody said this!’ Everything used to be such a big deal! But now, I feel I can handle everything that comes my way with a calm energy.”
On getting over insecurities:
“I focus on what’s important. My grandpa is sick, so I focus on him every day. I’m having the biggest song of my career so far, and all I can think about is my grandpa, because that’s what’s important to me.”
On the toughest thing she’s ever dealt with:
“Falling out of touch with my dad. It’s private, but it happened last year. It took me so long to be okay with it. The thing that got me there was embracing the fact that that I am made up of half my dad, and a lot of my traits come from him. So much of me comes from my father, and for so long, I didn’t like that about myself. I had to accept that it’s okay not to get along with somebody and still love them.”
