Arianna Grande: I have a lot on my plate right now. I won’t make a new album until I’m done with ‘Wicked’
IIt’s a tough day to be an Ariana Grande fan. While answering questions for a Thursday (May 12) video on the R.E.M. Beauty YouTube channel, the 28-year-old singer and makeup mogul revealed that she’s putting music on the back burner in order to focus all her attention on playing Glinda in John M. Chu’s film adaptation of the Broadway musical Wicked.
“I know that I know the material like the back of my hand, but I have so much to learn and I want to be in prime condition, so I went pretty hard getting ready,” she continued.
Now that she’s landed a spot in Wicked, which was just recently expanded into two feature-length films, the “POV” singer revealed that she plans on devoting all her time to perfecting the role as she’s been dreaming of playing Glinda since she was a child. “That is going to have every piece of me, every minute, every ounce of my heart, my time, my soul, my everything that I can give it,” she said. “My hands are quite full with a lot of other ‘thrilling’ work at the moment. I am spending all of my time with Glinda, I just was not ready.”
