Grande appears on the cover of the February 2014 issue of Cosmopolitan magazine. She talks about being a positive role model, her first date with boyfriend Nathan and making a name for herself.
I never really expected to be taken seriously as an artist, and it’s just been the ultimate, proudest achievement. I’ve dealt with a lot of people not knowing what to expect from me because of my age and my personality. People often mistake my kindness for weakness, and they didn’t expect much from me, because at the end of the day, I’m just a nice Italian girl from Boca.
