Ariana Grande Makes Life Changing Decision to Support Her Gay Brother

Ariana Grande, Frankie GrandeAriana Grande has gotten somewhat of a reputation recently for being a bit of a diva, so it's nice to hear stories that paint her in a more compassionate light. One thing that keeps this pint-sized pop star down to earth is her family.

She has a famously close relationship with her brother Frankie Grande, but how far would she go for her bro? It turns out that Ariana changed religions for her brother.


Frankie, who is best known for his Big Brother stint, is openly gay, which is a no-no in the Catholic Church. The 21-year-old singer decided that she wasn't willing to be part of a religion that rejected her big brother's lifestyle choices.

"When my brother was told that God didn't love him, I was like, 'Okay, that’s not cool,'" she explained. "They were building a Kabbalah centre in Florida so we both checked it out and really had a connection with it."

I'm sure it has nothing to do with the fact that Kabbalah is a trendy religion with the Hollywood set, practiced by other superstars like Madonna and Demi Moore.

Actually, Ariana spoke candidly about how the spiritual sect of Judaism has changed her life and how she reacts to the world.

"My life has unfolded in a really beautiful way, and I think that it has a lot to do with the tools I've learned through Kabbalah, I really do," she said. "You have to watch your intentions, make sure you're not giving in to your ego. You have to numb your reactive state. You have the power to change your reality."

She said she had no regrets leaving Catholicism.

A friend revealed to Us Weekly just how into Kabbalah the "Problem" singer is. They said, "She wears the red string bracelet and everything. She is totally obsessed with Kabbalah now, her friend got her into it. She says she is Jewish. She studies all the books and everything."

It's obvious that Ariana's loyalty is with her family, even when it comes to major life choices like what religion to follow. It's important to live your values, and that's impossible to do in a faith that you feel shuns your loved ones.
