Jaws Birthday Parties? Freddy Krueger Masks? Ariana Grande Talks Her Childhood

The 'Break Free' superstar says she was a "weird little girl" while growing up in Florida.

Ariana Grande? A teen goth? Apparently so… according to the lady herself!

The 'Problem' superstar has opened up about her childhood years and says she was a "weird little girl" who walked around wearing Freddy Krueger mask or throwing Jaws parties for her pals. Scary stuff!

"[I was] dark and deranged, a very weird little girl," Ariana reveals to Billboard. "I always wanted to have skeleton face paint on or be wearing a Freddy Krueger mask, and I would carry a hockey stick around.

"I was like a mini-Helena Bonham Carter!" she said. "For my fifth birthday party we had a Jaws theme and all my friends left crying. I mean, I still am that way. But when I was little it was more concerning!"

The US superstar has been enjoying HUGE success with her Iggy Azalea team-up, and, despite her album only dropping next week, is already looking to start work on new music. Bring it on, Ariana!

"I have to launch this album, and I get to do a tour, which all sounds fine and dandy," Ariana added. "But I just love being in the studio. I could start a new album right now, tonight. That sounds the most enticing to me. I love it.'

Remember… Ariana drops her new album 'My Everything' on 25th August and you can pre-order it right here.
