Ariana Grande is super close to her family and it really hurt when she lost her beloved Grandpa Grande. In a new interview, the songstress opened up about the biggest life lesson he taught her during one of their final conversations.
"My grandpa always told me I had to do things," Ariana said. "I remember when he was very, very sick — he was actually passing away — and I made a commitment to do the Today Show in the morning I was like, 'Grandpa, I'm staying here with you'. And he said, 'No, you're going to go.' That's going to haunt me forever. Now I have to do everything."
He made sure Ari fulfilled her commitment to make that TV appearance, no matter what. Although he did sadly pass away while Ariana went to the show, his parting words to her are something she will always carry with her. And that is what is so special about their bond.
