Ariana Grande Hopes Justin Bieber Can “Grow Into His Manhood Without Getting Hurt”

Before taking the stage as a presenter at the 56th Annual GRAMMY Awards, the lovely Ariana Grande sat down with Showbiz Shelly backstage to chat about her recent break-up with Nathan Sykes (formerly of The Wanted), and what she’ll be wearing (Of course!). Since Justin Bieber’s arrest is also top of mind right now, Ariana shared her thoughts on his situation.

This Sunday Ariana will be presenting at the GRAMMYs, and she’s really excited. She laughed, “I’m super nervous. I can’t read very far. I can’t see things that aren’t a yard away from me. When I drive I have to wear really thick glasses, so it should be interesting. We’ll see if I can read the teleprompter.”

This biggest news story of today was Justin Bieber’s arrest in Miami. Ariana showed compassion for her friend saying, “I just hope that he’s okay. That’s all. I think it’s sad how many people see it as a great opportunity to make jokes and to make fun of somebody. The egg thing was just silly because it’s eggs and they are just making a big deal about it because it’s Justin Bieber.”

She continued, “It’s just a matter of his health, and I hope that he’s OK and can grow into his manhood without getting hurt. I think that’s the most important thing. I just want him to be okay. It’s not like, ‘Oh he needs to grow up and stop acting this way.’ He needs to be healthy and I want him to be safe.”

After the interview, Ariana shared some very compassionate thoughts on Twitter.

Is she referring to her friend Justin Bieber?
