She took the role of Charlotte and surprisingly won an award in the National Youth Theater Association. It was a huge achievement for her as this solidified her motivation to pursue the limelight.

After which, the number of projects and invitations grew. She was eventually cast as one of the characters for “Victorious”, a show for Nickelodeon. It premiered in 2010 and proved to be a success after amassing 5.7 million viewers.

According to reports, she earned a whopping $9,000 for every episode in the first season alone for that show. Throughout its run, she also appeared in “Snowflake and the White Gorilla,” “Winx Club,” and on Greyson Chance’s music video.
Grande also appeared in “Sam & Cat” for 36 episodes, and a number of guest appearances in “Family Guy,” “Zoolander,” “Scream Queens,” and “Hairspray Live!.”
Ariana Grande Enters Music Industry
Her acting role was hugely successful. But this didn’t stop her from her tracks of achieving more. Grande soon later took on the music industry as she wrote her own songs. “Yours Truly” was her first album which was released in 2013.
It was a huge success as it managed to join the top 10 US Billboard hit. It even peaked at the ninth spot and sold more than 100,000 copies in its first week alone. Years passed and her music career expanded beyond expectation.
To give an idea of how successful and popular she was, her “Dangerous Woman Tour” grossed more than $70 million worldwide. It even made it to the number one spot of the Billboard 200 list. Furthermore, she’s got four Grammy nominations.
Ariana Grande’s Net Worth and Salary
Ariana Grande is one of the biggest names in Hollywood and in the music industry, despite her young age of 25-years-old. With this, it can clearly be seen that she’s amassed a huge amount of wealth for herself.
Numerous reports agree that Ariana Grande has a staggering $80 million net worth considering all her assets, properties, salaries, and investments.
This wealth comes from her numerous endorsements, gigs, beauty partnerships, musical endeavors, and sales from her world tours and merchandise. A report even states that Grande earned a whopping $630,000 for every night spent during her “Dangerous Woman” tour.
Additionally, $50,000 of that comes from the sales of her various merchandises. Her music career brought her more than $25million, says MTV. That comes as no surprise knowing that she has sold near 2 million albums locally.
Many even believe that her net worth will further increase as more projects, tours, and likely TV shows are going to make her busy in the months and years to come.
Religious and Societal Beliefs
Ariana Grande’s original religion was Roman Catholic as she was raised in that home setting when she was still young. However, she left Catholicism after Pope Benedict XVI became the pontiff of the church and opposed strongly to homosexuality.
The reason behind the abandonment of her religious Catholic beliefs was because her brother was gay and she doesn’t approve of the church’s stance against homosexuality. Since then, she has become a follower of Kabbalah at the young age of 12.
The belief stems from the fact that good things happen to you as long as you stay good. She even has songs that support the LGBT community such as her song entitled, “Break Your Heart Right Back.”
Ariana dated Graham Philips while she was still in “Musical 13” in 2008. They dated until 2011 and fell apart from each other. She then dated Mac Miller after meeting each other in “The Way”.
Their relationship started in 2016 and ended around 2018. Soon after, she met actor-comedian Pete Davidson in June 2018 and announced they were engaged shortly. Unfortunately, they abandoned their engagement and consequently their relationship in Oct. 2018.
Ariana Grande isn’t just one talented artist in Hollywood and in the music industry. She’s also got skills when it comes to business, such as her having ties with Lipsy in releasing their company’s new collection.
