Ariana Grande headlined the NBA All-Star halftime show in Madison Square Garden last night. The pop singer performed a medley of her hits including “Problem,” “Love Me Harder,” “The Way,” “One Last Time,” and “Break Free.” Grande also surprised the audience when she brought out Nicki Minaj to perform “Bang Bang” with her. “Bang Bang” reached the Number 3 position on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, and it was nominated for a Grammy award for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance. The song also features pop singer Jessie J.
Grande’s latest studio album, My Everything, was released last year. She has dropped four singles from the album including “One Last Time,” which was released to radio outlets on February 10th. The song debuted on the US Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles chart at Number 11. An alternative version of “One Last Time” featuring Kendji Girac was dropped on February 16th in France. Grande is headlining The Honeymoon Tour, which starts on February 25th in Independence, Missouri. During her tour, Grande will return to Madison Square Garden for a show on May 20th and the 21st. The pop singer will conclude her tour overseas on May 29th in Amsterdam, Netherlands.
This fall, the pop singer will star in a recurring role on Fox’s horror comedy anthology, Scream Queens. As previously reported, Scream Queens also stars Jaime Lee Curtis, Emma Roberts, Lea Michele, Abigail Breslin, Joe Manganiello, and Keke Palmer. Fox also announced pop star Nick Jonas will guest star on the show as well. The Fox network will air fifteen episodes in season one, and it will premiere in the fall. The first season will be set on a college campus after a series of murders took place on campus. Scream Queens is created by Glee creators Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, and Ian Brennan.
Grande began her acting career in the Broadway musical 13. She also starred in two Nickelodeon hit shows, Victorious and Sam & Cat. There was a lot of controversy surrounding her show Victorious, and the show’s co-star Victoria Justice. Nickelodeon suddenly pulled the show off the air, and it left fans wondering if there was a feud between Grande and Justice. Justice finally decided it was time to clear up all the feud speculations, and the actress said there was no bad blood between the two women. Nickelodeon still has not given a definitive answer why Victorious was taken off the air.
