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

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!
