Los Angeles: British singer Jessie J feels her fellow pop star Ariana Grande has been unfairly branded a "diva" because of untrue rumours about her bad behaviour.
Grand was recently accused of scrapping her entire promotional schedule in Australia because she was unhappy with pictures from a photoshoot, while a group of fans in the US called her rude for shunning them at a meet-and-greet session.
Grande has insisted the incidents have been blown out of proportion, and now Jessie J has spoken out in her defence, reports nydailynews.com.
"She's wonderful and she's had an extraordinary amount of success and the media sadly can't keep celebrating that, so they have to find something that they feel people would want to be more nosily interested in.
“I've had the 'diva' stamp, too... and there's a very fine line between diva and survivor.... (The accusations are) complete and utter bulls**t and you can put that in (your story),” she said.
