Ariana Grande says she was a ”mini-Helena Bonham Carter”.
The ‘Problem’ singer revealed her fifth birthday party was based on shark horror movie ‘Jaws’, and admitted her behaviour was ”a little more concerning” as a child.
She told Billboard magazine: ”Dark and deranged. I always wanted to have skeleton face paint on or be wearing a Freddy Krueger mask, and I would carry a hockey stick around.
”I was like a mini-Helena Bonham Carter. For my fifth birthday party we had a Jaws theme and all my friends left crying. I mean, I still am that way.
”But when I was little it was more concerning. There was a stage, when I was 3 or 4, where my mom thought I might grow up to be a serial killer.”
Meanwhile, she also discussed the difficulties of fame and admitted while she wants to retain some privacy in her life, she still tries to be herself.
Asked whether she feels pressure to hide things, she said: ”I do and sometimes I don’t. I vacillate between saying, ‘I need to keep some things private’ and ‘I should be able to be myself, and I need to share what I love and everything with the world!”’
