Oh Boy -- Better Pay Attention to Ariana Grande Before She Gets Impatient, Y'All

All right, so Ariana Grande, that lovely little up-and-comer: she seems sweet, right? That's what we know about her, really, that she seems sweet and she was on Nickelodeon and also she has a pretty incredible singing voice. Those are the things we know about her, and honestly, she's been kind of boring so far, as far as scandals go.
This, now, is why we think Ariana got super, super edgy in this new interview, in which she discussed her childhood:
"I always wanted to have skeleton face paint on or be wearing a Freddy Krueger mask, and I would carry a hockey stick around. I was like a mini-Helena Bonham Carter. For my fifth birthday party we had a Jaws theme and all my friends left crying. I mean, I still am that way. But when I was little it was more concerning. There was a stage, when I was 3 or 4, where my mom thought I might grow up to be a serial killer."
Oh girl, no, really, a serial killer? That's so hardcore! And all your friends left your fifth birthday party crying?! Watch out, everybody, we've got a great big badass on our hands now! Bonus: she also called herself "dark and deranged." So, like, you know she's intense. Probably like one of the most intense people we've ever even heard of.
No, but honestly: this is cute. It's always cute when a child star tries to break out of that, and this is certainly a good effort. It's just ... the serial killer bit, really? Maybe tone it down just a tiny bit, honey. It's coming across as just a little desperate.
