But the "Problem" singer proves that even the most successful pop stars aren't exempt from personal struggles. As Seventeen's newest cover girl, Ariana opened up to the magazine about her relationship with her father and the recent passing of her grandfather, which occurred after her interview.
This interview took place before I lost my grandfather. Reading it back now is, of course, very hard but I'm so grateful that I spoke briefly about some of the wisdom he shared with me in this interview. I hope the Seventeen readers find it helpful and can relate.
