It’s that time of the week when we shed light on a fan account who has been going above and beyond recently to take their fandom to the next level. This week we’ve chosen @ArianatorAmazex. We just ran an official Ariana merch competition with them which was a big success thanks to the account owner’s hard work. We wanted to find out a little bit about the person behind the magic…
Hi there. So who owns the account?
I am the only owner, and I have been since day one. My name is Emmie and I’m 16.
Why are you a fan of Ariana?
I’m a fan of Ariana Grande for several reasons, first of all her music is quite unique a lot of other artists don’t have the vocal range she does. I love her relationship with her fans, she always meets them and acknowledges them which I think is very important for celebrities to do.
How long have you been a fan of Ariana?
I started liking her music around 2011 when I heard one or two songs, but I must admit I didn’t become a fan until around 2014 when I heard more of her music and decided to make a fan account.
What made you choose to dedicate your fan account to her?
At first I was an Ariana Grande / Justin Bieber account because I loved both of them, but then I saw @ArianatorIsland who used to be an update account and she really inspired me to become an update account and I’m so glad I did because it’s so fun. I love it.
What’s your favourite Ariana song and why?
Tough question.. I have several but one of my main favourites is 100% ‘One Last Time’. It’s such a beautiful song. I can listen to it over and over and never get sick of it. But all of her music is just incredible.
How much time a day do you spend running the account?
I spend the majority of my day running the account, I’m constantly looking for any new updates that I might have missed. Around 8-9 hours per day, I’m always on and off.
Has Ariana ever noticed the account or engaged? If so how did you react?
Yes Ariana has noticed me multiple of times, which I am extremely grateful for. I was just so happy, overwhelmed and thankful.
Have you ever met Ariana?
Unfortunately I haven’t met Ariana and I won’t be on her upcoming tour either, but I would love to get the opportunity to meet her some day.
Have you seen her perform live? What was her most memorable performance?
Yes I seen her in 2014 at the ‘Honeymoon’ Tour, which was by far the most memorable concert I’ve ever been to. I would say ‘One Last Time’ or ‘All My Love’ was the most memorable performance because they were some of the songs I was most excited to hear live. it also gave the whole arena such an energetic vibe. I loved every second.
What do you think of Ariana’s relationship to her fans?
I think it’s a very strong and open relationship, she always shares things with her fans when she’s ready. She interacts with them on social media and elsewhere which I believe is one of the most important things for them to do.
What do you think of Ariana’s recent incident when people branded her as rude for telling off Ryan Seacrest?
Personally I believe Ariana had every right to tell him off because people just ‘assumed’ she was dating Mac over a post and saying its confirmed when she hadn’t said anything of the sort. Ariana is expected to share every inch of her life with the media, which must be extremely hard for them. So people should respect the fact she shares so much already, and if that’s all she wanted to share at the moment then they should respect that and drop the whole thing.
What is your opinion on doughnut-gate?
I think that the ‘doughnut’ situation was blown way out of proportion. Yes she shouldn’t have done that but she did apologise. I feel like the media made it worse than it was. The media always tries to focus on the negative side to an artist instead of focusing on anything positive she does. It’s like that with the majority of celebrities. They’re criticised for anything that could be made negative because it makes a headline. At the end of the day she made a mistake which we suppose to learn from and be forgiven for but everyone dragged it on and they still do.
What are your opinions on these Ariana issues? Do you think she was right to tell of Ryan? And what about doughnut-gate? Get involved by using the comments box below.
