We had SUCH a blast watching Ariana Grande‘s interview on last night’s VMA all access livestream. I mean, it’s not enough that Ariana’s set to perform this Sunday at the 2013 MTV VMA pre-show, but she’s also hanging out with us and answering all of our die-hard need-to-know questions?!? Including ones about Justin Bieber?! (Excuse me… feeling a little overwhelmed.)
Anyway, we heard a lot of great questions from Ariana studio Stans, but here’s one of our faves: “If you could have anybody play you in a movie, who would it be?” You’ll never believe her answer — it’s kinda obscure. And only makes us love her more. (Even if she doesn’t know the words to A$ap Rocky‘s “F**kin’ Problems.”)
Watch MTV’s VMA all access livestream after the jump.
Visiting MTV’s studios for a very special pre-VMAs “MTV First” interview, Ariana answered a nice mix of fan and Twitter questions from MTV News’ Christina Garibaldi and Buzzworthy’s Tamar Anitai.
So, who would Ariana want to play her in a movie of her life? Oh, just Olivia Hussey aka the original “Juliet” in “Romeo And Juliet.” No, NOT Baz Luhrmann’s 1997 version. We are straight talking about the 1968 “Romeo And Juliet”! Damn, Ariana knows her cinema history! I feel like we’re in a college class! Except not because it’s still summer, right? RIGHT?
