Ariana Grande Covers Complex Magazine, Talks About Recent Demonic Encounter and Comparisons to Mariah Carey

up and comers Mariah Carey demons cover girls Complex magazine Ariana Grande On being haunted by a demon after visiting Stull cemetary in Kansas (which is known as one of THE SEVEN GATES TO HELL): “I felt this sick, overwhelming feeling of negativity over the whole car and we smelled sulfur, which is the sign of a demon… I was like, ‘This is scary, let’s leave.’ I rolled down the window before we left and said, ‘We apologize. We didn’t mean to disrupt your peace.’ Then I took a picture and there are three super distinct faces in the picture—they’re faces of textbook demons.

“I deleted [the picture]. The next day I tried to send the picture to my manager and it said, ‘This file can’t be sent, it’s 666 megabytes.’ I’m not kidding. I used to have a folder called ‘Demons’ that had pictures with all the screencaps in it, but then weird things started happening to me so I deleted it.”

On the comparisons to Mariah Carey: “At first impression I think it’s an obvious comparison to draw because of the range and style of throwback R&B. But as you listen to the whole album, Yours Truly, you get to know my sound. You get to know Ariana. If I complained about being compared to the greatest vocalist who ever lived, I would be a very dumb, ungrateful person. So I can’t complain. It’s a massive compliment.”

On being a girly girl with a dark side: “I love Audrey Hepburn and Chanel. I’m super girly when it comes to fashion, but on the inside I’m only fascinated with dark, macabre, and weird things. Like the ‘Thriller’ video. Like Tim Burton.”

HA! That’s cute. I love that her idea of dark, macabre, and weird is the “Thriller” video and Tim Burton. (via JustJaredJr)
