Jessie J defends Ariana Grande against ‘diva’ rumors


Since the phenomenal success of her album My Everything, the 21-year-old pop star is often accused of having demands that are hard to keep up with.

However, British singer Jessie J says her friend Ariana has the unfair reputation as a “diva” because of false rumors about her behavior.

“I always say, judge a person when you meet them,” Jessie told Us Weekly.

“I’ve met Ariana, and there’s a very thin line between ‘diva’ and ‘survival.’ And a lot of people can’t [differentiate that] — and I’ve had that,” she said. “I’ve had the diva stuff. And it’s when people can’t cope with how passionate you are, and how much you care.”

“She’s super talented, she’s very young, and she’s very sure of what she wants,” Jessie J explained. “I think she’s wonderful. She’s great.”
