Ariana Grande denies diva behaviour

Ariana Grande has denied reports she scrapped her promotional schedule in Australia because she was unhappy with a photoshoot.

The Problem hitmaker was reported to have stormed out of a photo session Down Under because she was unimpressed with the pictures produced, but Grande is adamant there is no truth to the rumours.

She tells Australian radio show Mike E & Emma, "I did hear about something just 10 minutes ago that was totally untrue and very annoying... There's no record to set straight. It was just a photographer or something who got mad at me because I left to change my outfit mid-photoshoot because I didn't like my top and I was like, 'Oh I'll be right back' and then I came back and he had left and I was like 'Oh s**t' . He's now... said all these ridiculous untrue things about me and I'm just like, you know what, that's not real, that's nonsense, my fans know who I am, my family knows who I am, my friends know who I am and that's all that matters."

Grande's manager Scooter Braun also defended her on Twitter.com on Monday (08Sep14), writing, "@ArianaGrande is kind, caring, and more than anything she is a great human being (sic). Some people make up rumours for a living... so... saying things about Ari comes with her now being a big star. But saying she isn't a good person that ain't gonna fly... There is zero truth to anything different. Enough is enough...(sic)."

Last month (Aug14), Grande had to defend herself when a group of fans accused her of being rude and cold towards the crowd at a meet-and-greet session. Grande claims she acted that way because she was upset.

The radio interview with the pop star is due to air on Wednesday (10Sep14).
