You might be familiar with Ariana Grande's early stint as Cat Valentine on the Nickelodeon shows "Victorious" and "Sam and Cat" and you probably know of her music, including her latest album "Sweetener." But there are probably some surprising things you didn't know about the songstress.  

3 surprising things you didn't know about Ariana grande

-Her last name isn't pronounced the way you might think.

In a Beats One interview, Ariana Grande shared that her grandpa didn't pronounce her last name as many commonly do :"Grahn-day."

"My brother was like, we should say 'Gran-day.' It's so fun to say it. I grew up saying 'Grand-ee' and I think of my grandpa and I wish I said 'Grand-ee' more," Grande told the interviewer.

-She's allergic to cats.

Even though she played Cat Valentine in "Victorious" and "Sam & Cat," the former Nickelodeon star is allergic to her namesake.

She shared her cat allergy in a tweet in 2010.

-One of her singles earned her some major status as a pop icon — and a lawsuit.

According to ABC news, Grande was sued in 2013 for allegedly copying a lyric for her smash hit, "The Way," featuring Mac Miller.

According to the suit, "The Way" allegedly copied a lyric from the 1972 song " Troglodyte (Cave man)" by The Jimmy Castor Bunch.

In 2015, New York Daily News reported that the suit reached a confidential settlement.
