She’s also a magnet for adoration even among other celebrities — just ask Buzz fucking Aldrin.
Power Miss: Ari came under scrutiny with the release of “7 Rings” for the song’s resemblance to tracks from artists like Princess Nokia and Soulja Boy, and also for cultural appropriation.
Bottom Line: Her pop mega-stardom makes it easy to forget she was even on Nickelodeon. She has six Grammy nominations and one win for Sweetener, and despite her beginnings as Victoria Justice’s co-star, Grande has managed to tweet and sing herself into the elite class of artists. You’re talking about one of the five most powerful pop stars in the world at this moment.
