“It’s like the president is in town,” jokes the source of Ariana’s diva demands. “Everyone is kind of stressed and at the same time, they’re making fun of her because it’s much ado about nothing, really.”
The insider recalls of working with Ariana on a television project, “She kind of speaks down to everyone around her… [creating an atmosphere that’s] very intense.”
The insider adds of demands that Ariana’s “good side” (her left side) face the camera, “Having a preferred side is nothing new. Barbra Streisand, Mariah Carey and even Tina Fey have them. The difference is that normally a publicist will come up and politely ask that you shoot X from X side.”
However, “With Ariana’s team, it is a demand from the beginning, three people come to make sure before Ariana enters the room. Instead of coming off like an assertive woman who knows what she wants, it makes Ariana seem like a toddler throwing a tantrum and her parents handling the dirty work for her.”
The source adds, although such demands don’t necessarily complicate the shoot, “It just creates tension for everyone in the room when someone comes in with a list of demands, which is very rare. It also creates a weird shot because she basically sits with her profile towards the camera the entire time.”
