Could little Ariana Grande LOOK any sweeter? Too bad the tiny dynamo with a ponytail is shaping up to be a terrible diva. When we first heard peeps that Ariana, 21, was uncooperative and demanding, we didn’t pay much attention. But where there’s smoke there’s fire. More and more reports of her being a gigantic pain in the neck keep surfacing. If she gives an interview, it is preceded by a long list of questions that CANNOT be asked. In photo sessions she only wants to be shot from her good side, not in natural light, AND she has to approve every pic. Her minions have been known to threaten uncooperative photographers. She and Justin Bieber are both managed by Scooter Braun – maybe he should consider sending both of his clients to charm school.

We LOVE the NY Daily News for calling Justin Bieber’s manager Scooter Braun a LIAR because he really has it coming. Last year the paper heard about the Bieber video that recently made headlines because Justin told a racist joke. A reporter reached out to Braun for comments. Not only did Braun deny the tape EXISTED – he tried to blame it on a Bieber imposter! Then he threatened to “destroy” the paper if they ran the story! All this instead of a simple and civilized “I’ll look into it and call you back.” Of course the tape eventually surfaced and Justin, who was only 15 at the time it was made, apologized profusely. In this case Justin was the mature and civil one, while his manager proved to be an obnoxious liar.

Justin Bieber’s manager Scooter Braun has no intention of letting Scientology get a hold on his famous and vulnerable client. Braun told the Hollywood Reporter he was happy when Will Smith paid a surprise visit to Justin last May – he pulled the hard-partying singer out of bed for a three hour conversation. Justin was thrilled and duly impressed that the major movie star cared enough to take the time to do that. Now they have a weekly call to discuss whatever issues come up in Justin’s life. Justin’s manager IS making sure, however that the subject of Scientology NEVER comes up. (Imagine how happy Scientologists would be to recruit Justin – and have access to all his impressionable fans!
