21-year-old Ariana Grande is covering the latest issue of Billboard Magazine. The petite vocal powerhouse gives a bit of insight on her upbringing, maintaining her private life and work ethic. Check out a few excerpts.

On having a dark, quirky side as a child: 

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.
