Ariana Grande has a special relationship in her life.

And I’m not talking about boyfriend / rapper Mac Miller.

Grande opens up about her style inspirations to Byrdie, playfully gushing that her ponytail is timeless (she’s been wearing it that way since she was a little girl).

“It brings me so much joy, honestly,” she admits. “Every time I put my hair up, it’s like a surprise. Like, I forget how much I love it, and then I tie it back and I’m like, ‘I love this look! Ooh, girl!’ Every time I tie it up is like the first time. It’s like true love.”

The real story here should be Grande’s gratitude towards her celebrity, but it isn’t.

“I hope to be doing exactly what I’m doing now,” Grande says when asked where she sees herself in 10 years, “which is making music, spending time with incredible people whom I love and who love me, and we’re good around each other. Rescuing way too many animals—more than I have room for. Hopefully at that point I’ll have more room for them, for more animals. I really love my life right now and I’m very appreciative and I’m grateful, so I hope that I just keep going and doing what I’m doing. I’m not gonna take it for granted.”
