ARIANA Grande admits she wrote her first song about sex when she was just 14 years old.

The 21-year-old singer first penned a naughty track when she was a teenager, but her mother thought she was "too young" to be creating records like that.   

She said: "I was 14 years old and ready to make an R&B album. I was like, 'Where is that Mary J. Blige collaboration? Where is that Natasha Bedingfield writing session? Where is my session with India.Arie? I'm ready. Let's go.  

"[I] wrote this song called 'Higher,' and the lyrics were too sexual, too mature.   

"And my mom was like, 'This is a great song, but damn, you're too young for this.' "  

The 'Bang Bang' hitmaker shot to fame in the TV show 'Sam & Cat', in which she played sweet, naive, happy Cat Valentine, and she admits she used to pretend she was more like her alter-ego than she actually was.  

She explained in the October issue of Marie Claire magazine: "People liked her and they accepted her and they thought that I was like her. So I used to pretend to be a little more like her than I actually was."  

However, the brunette beauty decided, that as time went on, she wanted to establish her own identity in order to pursue her career in the music industry.   

She said: "I was like, 'Guys, there has to be a really distinct difference between me and my character.'   "We did that with 'The Way'.   

"I dyed my hair back to brown. I made out with a rapper in the video. I made the point I wanted to make. And I was excited to do so after so many years of pretending to be somebody else in front of a lot of people."
