Arianna Grande ADMITS she was scared to become the star she wanted after Nickelodeon

Ariana Grande's trademark thigh-high boots and long ponytail are hard to imagine without, but she now confesses she was previously afraid to exhibit that side of herself. On Wednesday, Grande, 28, discussed her path from being a Nickelodeon star on Victorious and Sam & Cat to evolving into a recording artist with her own style on Eric Vetro's new podcast Backstage Pass with Eric Vetro.

"At first, releasing 'The Way' was both liberating and scary for me because I was so certain that I had to be one thing — because people knew me from my Nickelodeon show and I was playing a role that a lot of people recognised me as." According to media, the singer of "34 35" explained. "I was pretty afraid to do what I wanted and produce the music that I wanted to make — and have my brown hair, wear thigh high heels [and be] what I wanted to be," she said.

However, it was a watershed moment for the artist when she eventually chose to release the song and ditch the red hair. "Putting out my first song on my first album and taking that risk from the beginning was a really huge moment for me," Grande added. "It was a life-changing experience for me."

Meanwhile, along with Blake Shelton, John Legend, and Kelly Clarkson, the "Thank U, Next" singer is a first-time coach on The Voice this season. On Tuesday, Kristin Chenoweth joined Grande's Battle Grounds team as an adviser, and in a sneak peek of Monday's show, Grande revealed the advice Chenoweth had previously given her. In the video, Grande says, "I learnt all I know from observing this woman." When we were doing Hairspray Live, you would pitch a joke, or like, a melody change here and there, and ask, 'Does this add value?' As a performer, to me, that changed my life entirely."
