The brunette beauty also appeared on-stage as a surprise guest during Madonna’s Rebel Heart tour. Ariana has previously admitted to having a huge admiration for the pop icon’s longevity in the music business. She told Apple Music’s Zane Lowe: “After everything she has accomplished, reshaping pop music and setting the bar higher and higher, I feel like she does it as she is still hungry and still loves it.”

Grande revealed that Madonna’s attitude really “resonates” with her, saying: “She has done what she needs to do – there are no more awards and hits she needs. She does it as she loves it and that resonates with me.”
