It wasn’t Ariana Grande’s big win or her Giambattista Valli Couture dress at the American Music Awards that is making news - it’s her Nonna! Instead of bringing some hot guy or her rumored boyfriend Ricky Alvarez as her date, the singer chose to bring one of the closest people in her life, her grandmother.
Marjorie “Nonna” Grande sat beside her superstar granddaughter during the AMAs and was even given a shout-out. After thanking her fans for her win as “Best Female Pop/Rock Artist,” Arianna tearfully thanked her Nonna, an endearing term for Grandmother, by saying, “I think I owe a lot of this to my Nonna who made sure to remind me that she voted.” She then mimicked her grandmother by saying, “Ariana I went on the computer, I voted, so I think you’ll win.”
The duo held hands throughout the award show, and Marjorie beamed with pride while watching Arianna perform. We’re hoping to see more of America’s favorite Nonna. Here’s hoping she’s at the Grammys!
