She has recently has been excited about an original song she wrote called Put Your Hearts Up,
She shared lyrics a few verses at a time with her followers on Twitter.
Here’s some of the lyrics Ariana posted for
Put Your Hearts Up

…”You think you’re so small, like you’re itty bitty. Just one match in the lights of the city…

“Out of sight out of mind, like, like it’s just a waste of time LIKE LIKE LIKE. Hey yeah yeah yeah yeah…” ♥

Here’s the 3rd couplet!… “You think you’re never gonna make your mark, sit back and watch the world while it falls apart LIKE… ” ♥ ♥ ♥

The chorus will be something like this

Lemme See You Put Your Hearts Up
Lemme See You Put Your Hearts Up
If We Give A Little Love
Maybe We Can Change The World…
Hey Yeah Yeah Yeah
Hey Yeah Yeah

In November, Ariana and Popststar magazine announced a contest for her LA fans to join her to film the music video for Out Your Hearts Up!

About 30 lucky fans got to hang out with Ariana and Frankie Grande and film the music video in LA.

One of Our Twitter Friends @Tenorbuds go to go and took some pics of prizes fans got.


He also took this pic of the Marquee


Ariana announced that the song will be on iTunes on December 3, 2011. I’m not sure when the video will be up but tons of talented people are working in it.

Are you excited??


She also had fans help her pic the cover art! They picked this but I thought she should choose this —


Well just kidding! But here’s another pic she shared with her fans on Twitter from the day of the shoot.

On June 25, 2011 Ariana Grande celebrated her 18th birthday in style.

The party was on the Historic Paramount Lot on Hollywood, California.

We love Ariana! We’ve met her a few times at charity events and concerts. She plays Cat Valentine on Victorious. She and Cat are a little alike. They are both sweet and love their friends, but Ariana is way smarter and more talented than Cat.
She is so funny and talented. One time at Greyson Chance ‘s concert we saw a group of shy girls walk up to her and they finally got brave enough to ask for a picture, Ariana said “No” and the girls were shocked! Then she smiled and said “Just Kidding! of course we can take a picture!!”

Ariana, her brother Frankie, and Popstar Magazine invited fans to participate in a contest to win tickets to the party. 35,000 fans entered and Popstar picked 35 winners. Each winner was able to invite 3 guests.

We got an email that said we were allowed to attend! We invited our sweet friend Rebekah who really likes meeting stars too. She lives far away from LA and has had some bad luck at tapings that were canceled and other things that didn’t go well.

We arrived at the check in and were given pink t-shirts with Ariana’s party logo, a heart with AG 18 in it. We were also given water and a boxed meal and then we had to wait to be walked over. They walked us over in 3 groups and we were seated in a theater.

The program was on our seats and the line up was AMAZING:

Ariana Grande
Greyson Chance
Taylor Dayne
Liz Gillies
Aaron Simon Gross
Neil Haskell
Patti LaBelle
Taylor Parks
Graham Phillips
Miranda Sings
Leon Thomas III

After a little while, the party guests came into the theater. We saw the cast of Victorious (except for Victoria who is filming Fun Size in Cleveland). We also saw Ashley Argota, Dillon Land and Taylor Gray stars of the new Nick Show, Bucket and Skinners Epic Adventures. Ryan Ochoa and Mitchell Musso walked in together. Rico and Raini Rodriguez came in with their parents. Keke Palmer sat in front of us. We noticed Drake Bell sitting with his date and Nat and Alex from the Naked Brothers.

The concert was amazing! Frankie was so funny and sweet as the Emcee. Their Nonna and Grandpa were introduced as out hosts. Ariana’s mom, Joan, sat next to her in the front row.

Ariana stars in Greyson Chance’s video Unfriend Me. They played the video then sang it for us. Taylor Dayne sang. IYAZ sang two songs then Ariana joined him and they sang an unreleased duet.
Miranda Sings number was really funny.

At the end Patti LaBelle came out. She is an an AMAZING lady. The next day she was going to receive the Lifetime Achievement Award at the BETs! She sang Happy Birthday to Ariana, Over the Rainbow and a duet of Lady Marmalade with Ariana!!

At some point during the concert, we had to move because IYAZ and his family and friends were given our row! The people organizing the event felt bad. They said, “We need to move because IYAZ wants to be together with his family. We’d like to make it up to you by INVITING YOU TO THE REST OF THE PARTY!

So after the concert , the guests returned to the party and Ariana had a quick meet and greet with the fans who won the contest. Each guest went up got a pic with her a signed picture and a cupcake. When it was my turn, she recognized me and said, “I’m so glad you could come.” She hugged me posed for a pic and gave me her signed picture.

We then waited until all the fans met her and went out to the party!!!


There were tables of cakes and candy.There were two photo booths. At one photo booth, they made flip books. There was home made ice cream and a DJ. There were even waitresses in old fashion clothes on skates!!
We were able to say hi to some of the guests and get some pics with:

Ariana Grande
Frankie Grande
Liz Gillies
Leon Thomas
Avan Jogia
Matt Bennett
Erik Lange
Dillon Lane
Taylor Gray
Ashley Argota
Rachel Fox
Ryan Ochoa
Drake Bell
Josh Peck

The concert ended at 11:30 and we stayed till 1:30. It was the best party I’ve been to in my WHOLE life.

I forgot to say that every guest got a pink Snuggie with Ariana’s birthday logo on it as a gift.

I’m very thankful and grateful to Ariana, Frankie and Popstar Magazine for allowing fans like me the chance to be part of Ariana’s special day!

Meeting Ariana Grande and the cast of Victorious

On March 27, 2010, a new series premiered on Nickelodeon. It was created by Dan Schneider and is about a teenager named Tori Vega who attends Hollwood Arts with her sister, Trina and their friends.

Ariana Grande plays Cat. Her character is always really happy or really sad. She talks in a high pitched voice and has really red hair. Sometimes she shows off her awesome voice on the show. She sang a song on Freak the Freak Out called Give it Up. In real life, Ariana is an awesome singer, loves her fans, family and supporting charities. She actually starred on Broadway in a show called 13. She was born in Florida and has a brother she’s really close to named Frankie. Ariana is very passionate about a charity called Broadway in South Africa. Ariana loves to stay in touch with her fans through Twitter. She lets you know how much she loves you and when she’ll be somewhere where you can meet her. She is very loving and offers “Free Hugs”.

Once she tweeted that she would be at a charity event in Hollywood. We live near there so my mom said we could go. WooHoo! When we got there we found out it was a fund raiser and tickets cost $150 each! My mom talked to the ticket lady and explained we only wanted to see Ari..So the lady let us both go for $150. That’s a lot of money but my mom loves to support charities and I REALLY wanted to meet Ariana. We listened to a lot of awesome singers from Broadway sing that night. We met Matt Doyle, Tom Link and also met the actor who played Sebastian from Little Mermaid!

Ariana was awesome. She sang “Beautiful” and one other song. The crowd LOVED her! After, we went up to her. She was with her mom. They were super nice and we got an autograph and lots of pictures. We ran into her again out in the lobby. We told her how much we loved her on Victorious. Her voice in real life is different from Cat’s. She explained that has 3 voices, her “Cat” voice, her “real” voice and her singing voice.

In September, she tweeted that she would be at an event at the Santa Monica Pier. It was a charity for the earth called Roots and Shoots. It was the same day as the Jonas Brothers’ Road Dogs Game. We went and waited but had to leave to get to the game before she got there. We left her a note and a picture of us together!

A few months later she tweeted thst was going to be a waitress at Chili’s nearby as part of a fund raiser for St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital! When we arrived there were a few friends we knew from Twitter. We all sat together and soon Ariana arrived to serve us. That was a really fun day!

Dan Schneider, Erik Lange, Danielle Monet and Ariana’s family all came out to support her and St Jude’s. Ariana spent a lot of time at our table and even sang Happy Birthday to someone at our table!



Daniella Monet ME Ariana Grande

I think it was really cool of the Dan, Erik and Daniella to come out and be so nice to their fans and support Ariana and this awesome charity.

My mom tweeted that the “Free Hug” I got at the Broadway event cost her $150. She never thought Ariana would actually see that tweet but she did. Ariana is such a cool person that she thought that it was pretty funny. She also gave me a shout out n Twitter and talked about me in a chat!

I hope we see Ariana Grande again soon!

I have met other members of the cast too:

I met both Avan and Victoria Justice at the Teen Choice Awards. They were on there way to an after party so I just got quick pics!



I met Leon at a launch party for Concrete Minds in Hollywood.


I met Matt Bennett and Danielle Monet a few different times at events… Here’s a pic of me with Matt at the Miss Behave Launch event in Hollywood. He is so silly!


I hope I meet Liz Gillies and Mikey Reid someday.

I love the show and hope you do too!

I hope you liked this Blog. My mom and I worked hard on it!
