Ariana Grande puts family before fans to spend time with sick grandpa
It should be an exciting time for Ariana Grande as the starlet has just nabbed her first UK #1 single this week with her single ‘Problem’ featuring Iggy Azalea.
However, the cute-as-a-button singer has had to cancel some appearances in England after news her grandpa has taken a turn for the worse.
Fans of Ari are no stranger to grandpa Grande, with the singer regularly tweeting pics of him in hospital, battling a malignant cancer.
When the pop sensation announced back in June that he had finished his treatment and beaten the disease, ‘Arianators’ started using the hashtag #PrayforGrandpaGrande and it’s now started trending again this week, as her grandpa continues his stay in hospital.
There’s no doubt her UK fan base means a lot to her after they pushed her single to the top spot on the charts, knocking off Ella Henderson, George Ezra and Ed Sheeran.
Hearing the impressive news, the pint-sized singer took to Twitter to thank them for all their support:
was too much to fit in one tweet! thank u so much UK, just heard the news today.... love u more than words pic.twitter.com/t1hzaaNHi4

While UK fans may have to wait a little longer to see the pop star in the flesh, we’re glad she’s got her priorities in check!
Get better soon Grandpa Grande!
