Ariana Grande insists she looked like a ''hot mess'' during her younger years and used to look like a Strawberry Shortcake after having her hair dyed red for a film role.
Ariana Grande claims she was a ''hot mess'' when she was younger.
The 'Problem' hitmaker - who is rumoured to be dating Big Sean - has confessed that although she's now a stunning star, she too has embarrassing pictures from her past that make her cringe.
Quizzed on how she feels when she sees old snaps of herself, she said: ''Oh my God! You know when you scroll a little too far back on your Facebook and you're like, 'Oh my God - I didn't want to see that! Why am I going through this?!
''I was a hot mess. I had to dye my hair red for a role [in 'Victorious'] and it put me in a challenging position because I liked to wear black but it just made me look edgy.
''So to combat that I had to be super girly with my clothes but then I ended up looking like Strawberry Shortcake.
''It went down hill from there.''
The 21-year-old beauty also spoke about the condition of her hair - which she referred to as ''ratchet'' earlier this year - to insist that although she still wears extensions, her own hair is looking much better.
She added to We Love Pop magazine: ''It's actually really healthy. It's funny because whenever I post a picture my fan will be like, 'Weave on point gurl!' And I'm like, 'I DON'T WEAR A WEAVE! ... I still wear extensions but my real hair is almost completely restored.''
'Smalls Change (Meditations Upon Ageing)' arrives in April.
The two awards have made for a great 72nd birthday present for the country music icon.
