Ariana Grande and Kristin Chenoweth are the best of friends. Chenoweth spoke exclusively to US Weekly about her bond with the singer.
“My little Nugget,” said Kristin Chenoweth
She mentions how excited she is to visit her once the coronavirus outbreak is over. “She’s my little nugget,” the actress continued, “and I adore her.” Grande met Chenoweth when she was 9 years old and went to see her perform as Glinda in “Wicked” on Broadway.
Her nana and mom took her backstage, and she said, ‘When I grow up, I want to be you. ‘”And I was like, ‘You’re so small,'” Chenoweth said. “I felt like Heidi Klum when she came up to my waist. “We stayed in touch after that.” “You’re a princess, you’re a queen, and you sing like one,” the Broadway diva continued, referring to how she gifted Grande a wand during their first encounter. When the two reconnected for “Hairspray Live!” in 2016, the former “Sam and Cat” star surprised Chenoweth by bringing out the wand and bringing her to tears.
Confession about their date on “The Kelly Clarkson Show”.
Kristin remarked to guest presenter Jay Leno on ‘The Kelly Clarkson Show’: “We’ve gone on dates — not as a couple, though there’s nothing wrong with that — but with other partners.
We enjoy bowling and Craig’s truffle pizza in Los Angeles.”
Kristin is engaged to musician Josh Bryant, 39, and Ariana Grande, 28, married luxury real estate dealer Dalton Gomez in May 2021. Ariana couldn’t contain her enthusiasm when it was announced in November that she would be sporting Glinda’s renowned bubble dress in the part made famous by Kristin.
Kristin posted a photo of 10-year-old Ariana greeting her backstage at ‘Wicked,’ writing: “I’m not sure I’ve ever been so pleased with myself. You were destined for this position from the moment I met you (swipe to see!!). @arianagrande, congratulations!” A screenshot of one of Ariana’s tweets from 2011 was also included in the article. It said: “I loved watching Wicked again…what an incredible show! It reminded me how much I want to play Glinda at some point in my life!

This isn’t the first time the two have had a lovely exchange in recent months. While making her debut on “The Voice,” where Chenoweth acted as the celeb Battle Rounds advisor for Team Ari, Grande shared some vital advice the Broadway star provided her that has shaped the way she views her business and life.
“You’d pitch a joke or a melody tweak here and there when we were filming “Hairspray Live,” and ask, ‘Does this add value?'” the 28-year-old recounted to Chenoweth. “As a performer, that completely changed my life.” “Now, when I’m composing songs or performing songs, or if I’m going to do a run,” Grande continued, “I want to make sure that it provides value and that it has intention.
” I’ve never seen anything else the same way since. I swear to the Almighty. I’m eating breakfast right now.
