I can't wait until all this cutie-pie stuff that Ariana Grande excels at so well begins to melt away into her sexpot years ala Vanessa Hudgens or even her Nickelodeon "Sam & Cat" co-star Jennette McCurdy. The former "Victorious" co-star has been making a huge splash over the course of 2013, from releasing her debut CD to great numbers to rocking out at the Z100 Jingle Ball concerts over the month of December, slowing altering her stage costumes until they were short enough for some intriguing upskirt shots. Now that she's the cover model for the February 2014 issue of Cosmo magazine, it's proof that the upcoming year will be one for the singer/actress to explore some more of her sexy side.
Ariana explains in her interview with the magazine that she holds older divas as her role models. "I like Barbra Streisand, and when was the last time you saw Babs getting, like, 'turnt up'? That’s kind of the road that I, as a lady, would like to go down." You can read more when the issue hits newsstands on January 7th.
