Ariana Grande says in a new interview she was “dark and deranged” as a child, although you would never know it now judging by her sex look and glam style. Growing up, however, was a different story.

She says she was a “mini Helena Bonham Carter,” with the same penchant for the macabre.

On her fifth birthday, she chose a shark theme from the horror movie ‘Jaws” for her party. “All my friends left crying. I mean, I still am that way.”

“Dark and deranged,” was how she described herself to Billboard.

“I always wanted to have skeleton face paint on or be wearing a Freddy Krueger mask, and I would carry a hockey stick around,” she says.

“There was a stage, when I was 3 or 4, where my mom thought I might grow up to be a serial killer.”

Like many celebrities fame has brought new problems. She still wants privacy in her life and does her best to be herself.

“I vacillate between saying, ‘I need to keep some things private’ and ‘I should be able to be myself, and I need to share what I love and everything with the world!'” she says.
