Adriana’s parents separated before she was 10, but that didn’t sem to effect her too much, as she joined an acting troupe called “Fort Lauderdale Children’s Theatre”, with which she performed various plays. Even though she initially desired to pursue a career as a singer, Grande decided to focus on theatre and acting, and at just 15 in 2008, landed her first role in Jason Robert Brown’s musical called “13” with Graham Phillips, Allie Trimm and Eric Nelsen in the main roles; for her portrayal of Charlotte, Grande received a National Youth Theatre Association Award for Best Supporting Actress. This gave her an opportunity to star in “Victorious”, and later in “Sam & Cat”. Released to generally mixed reviews, the “Victorious” series premiered to an audience of 5.7 million viewers, while the premiere of the second season succeeded in attracting 6.1 million viewers. Her performance earned her the two plaudits mentioned above, and when the series ended in 2013, Grande subsequently starred in her own spin-off series, entitled “Sam & Cat” with Jennette McCurdy and Cameron Ocasio. The pilot episode of the series was watched by 4.2 million viewers, while its later episodes enjoyed an audience averaging 4.8 million, so her net worth was well established.
Aside from acting, Grande launched her career as a singer in 2013, with her debut album “Yours Truly”, which received favorable critical reviews, and the success of which was followed by the release of her second studio album in 2014 called “My Everything”. Upon its release, the album quickly peaked at #1 on the music charts in the US, Canada and Australia, and made it to Top 10 in 20 other countries. In addition to producing such singles as “Break Free”, “Problem” and “Love Me Harder”, the album received a nomination for a Grammy Award in the category of Best Pop Vocal Album, all potentially adding further to her net worth.
In 2015, Grande started recording for her third studio album, initially releasing the lead single “Focus”, which debuted on the Hot 100at No. 7 , and he YouTube song’s music video subsequently attracted over 700 million views. She then signed exclusively with Universal Music Publishing Group, which included a duet in Italian with Andrea Bocelli on “E Più Ti Penso” from his album “Cinema”, plus a video of the song “Zero to Hero” from the film “Hercules”. Grande also released “Christmas & Chill”, her second Christmas EP, which debuted on the Billboard 200 at No. 34, and No. 3 on Billboard’s Holiday Albums chart.
Her next album and lead single eventually entitled “Dangerous Woman” came out in 2016, followed by tours and promotions, and a cameo appearance in the film “Zoolander 2” starring Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson. Aside from entertainment, MAC Cosmetics launched her makeup collection, with 100% of proceeds donated to the MAC AIDS Fund, plus fragrances and a fashion line, which in total have sales close to $200 million, adding significantly to Adriana’s net worth.
