Ariana Grande covers the February 2014 issue of Teen Vogue
. In the interview, the actress and singer talks about haters and staying true to herself. She also talks about her long distance relationship with The Wanted's Nathan Sykes.
On Staying True to Herself
: "I'm not like a little robot at all. I'm a real person. I don't try to do things because they will look a certain way. I try to keep it real with my fans."
On Ignoring the Haters
: "For a very long time it affected me. And I was like, 'But they don't know the story!' or 'But they don't know me!' And my friends were like, 'That's the thing. They don't know you and they never will. You can't let a 12-year-old in Minnesota ruin your day."
On Being in a Long-Distance Relationship with Nathan Sykes
: "It's not as tough as people would think. We have the same music manager, so we can see each other's schedules and plan little trips as often as we can."
Here is a behind-the-scenes video of the Teen Vogue
cover shoot. Ariana has a chameleon friend during part of the shoot. As MTV notes
the chameleon did not even try to blend in with Ariana's pink outfits. Maybe it wanted to be noticed by Ariana or it wasn't given enough time to turn pinker. You can view the photos here
