Ariana Grande Is Adorable in This Elementary School Yearbook Photo

As we watch Ariana Grande -- the miniature lady with the highest ponytail in pop since Madonna's Blond Ambition tour -- bellow into the mic on national television, like daily, we often wonder, "Did the bite-sized Boca babe actually swallow Mariah Carey?" It would explain why the American public is so hypnotized by her great big wails and also why her muffled lyrics are basically impossible to decipher.

Ariana's here to stay. And the real proof of that is, she got a real diss from The Divine Miss M when Bette Midler herself told the Telegraph she was "ridiculous" and has a "silly high voice."

They've already made up on Twitter. That is stardom at its most millennial.

Anyway. Now that you know who we're talking about, and you're up to speed on her latest drama. Please take a peek at Ariana Grande's 5th grade elementary school photo we scored from a former classmate from North Broward Preparatory School.
