Ariana Grande Diva Rumors: ‘Scream Queens’ Reps Shoot Down Emma Roberts Feud
The Inquisitor - almost 2 years
Ariana Grande has been called many things in her relatively young career: talented, beautiful, driven. Unfortunately for her, an adjective that has also been used to describe her in the past has been the dreaded “D-Word,” diva. Which made recent rumors reported by VH1 regarding on set diva-like behavior and a feud brewing between Scream Queens co-star Emma Roberts all the more believable. According to the article, Ariana, who will be doing a guest stint on the show, and Emma had been “catfighting” during filming. Roberts was supposedly disgusted over Grande’s demands that no cell phones be allowed on set. “Ari’s diva behavior supposedly sent Emma screaming to Murphy about how upset she was,” the original article claimed. But almost immediately, those reports were quickly disputed by FOX reps who issued a statement supporting Grande and dispelling the rumors as untrue. “Ariana Grande is currently on tour and has yet to hit the stages of ‘Scream Queens.’ These rumors are fa ...

Miranda Cosgrove Takes On Sheryl Crow In Pretty Acoustic Cover (VIDEO)
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Original Song: "The First Cut Is the Deepest" by Cat Stevens Cover Artist: "Despicable Me 2" star Miranda Cosgrove How It's Different: Originally written by folk-rock singer Cat Stevens, Miranda isn't the first to cover this hit song. Channeling Sheryl Crow's 2003 version, Miranda mentions that she was inspired by the "If It Makes You Happy" singer to perform her own, taking on a quiet, acoustic adaptation that is both sweet and simple. Why We Love It: From Ariana Grande to Jennette McCurdy, vocal talent is not sparse among Nickelodeon stars. While you probably know Miranda best as Carly Shay from our beloved "iCarly" (RIP), it turns out that she has some real singing chops, too. We're glad she's sharing them with us along with the rest of the 'Nick' crew. Better Than The Original? Miranda's cover is no doubt very pretty, but no rocks it quite like the '90s badass that is Sheryl Crow. What do you think of Miranda's version? Tell us in the comments or twee ...
