There are a lot of reasons for why everyone should be in love with Ariana Grande. She's one of those celebrities that's not only insanely talented, but also an insanely good person. Oh, sure, like anyone else, I'm sure that Grande has her haters, but I'm certainly not among them. After all, Grande is the actress behind Cat Valentine of Victorious and Sam & Cat fame as well as the voice behind Yours, Truly and an upcoming second album. Grande has been in the fame game since she was a child, so it might be hard to believe that she is officially 21 years old today.
Grande, who was born Ariana Grande-Butera, has spent considerable time building up her huge fanbase of Arianators, who have been trending #Happy21stBirthdayAriana on Twitter all morning. "So happy to have grown with Ariana and watch her accomplish so much at such a young age," said one fan on Twitter while another Arianator added. "21 years later and her smile has still remained beautiful."
