Ariana Grande: My mom thought I would be a serial killer

Most parents have high hopes for what their children will become when they grow up. Not Ariana Grande's mom.

The singer told Billboard that her mom was worried she'd grow up to become a serial killer.

"For my fifth birthday party we had a Jaws theme and all my friends left crying," Grande told the magazine. "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."

She went on to call herself a "very weird little girl"  who idolized Freddy Krueger and Marlene Dietrich.

"Dark and deranged. 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," she revealed.

Luckily, Grande opted for a career in pop music.
