Ariana Grande talks giving up Christianity for Kabbalah
Ariana Grande has revealed that she “lost faith” in the Roman Catholic church after realising she disagreed with many of the values promoted by the religion.
Speaking to Metro, the 20-year-old pop star explained that she chose to switch to Kabbalah, because she “needed something else to believe in.”
“I was born Roman Catholic but I lost faith when the Pope decided to tell me everything I loved and believed in was wrong,” explained the ‘Baby I’ singer, who is currently dating The Wanted’s Nathan Sykes.
“[The church] said Spongebob Squarepants is gay and he’s a sinner and he should burn in hell. And Harry Potter was a sin. And working women.”
She added: “I was like ‘Enough! First the gays, then Spongebob and now Harry Potter? Get out my house!’ I was not having it. And the working woman thing? It was a moment for me. I needed something else to believe in.”
Grande further explained that following in the footsteps of fellow celebrities Madonna, Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher and adopting the practice of Kabbalah has had a positive impact on how she views life.
“It is the practice of being a good person and how that will manifest good things in your life,” she shared.
“People don’t really realise that if you are kind, you can make all sorts of things happen for you.”
