Ariana Grande just became the first woman ever to be at number 1 on the Billboard Artist 100, a new concept of ranking an artist based both on their talent AND their popularity. The last person to win this achievement was Michael Jackson! Michael frickin’ Jackson!!! The Nickelodeon star is arguably music’s rising star, owning the summer with hits all over the place including “Problem,” “Bang Bang,” and “Break Free.” Not bad for a singer whose only 21. We’re so proud of the undeniable star and her well deserved accomplishment. It couldn’t have happened to a more talented young star.
