SHE landed the role as Glinda The Good Witch in the upcoming two-film adaptation of the hit musical Wicked.
Now Ariana Grande has found her own fairytale palace to rent while in the UK working on the film — an eight-figure mega mansion.

Insiders say the Thank U, Next singer is living in a palatial property in North London, with plush Hampstead Heath, trendy Highgate and well-to-do Belsize Park nearby, meaning Liam Gallagher and Ricky Gervais are among her neighbours.
Her American husband Dalton Gomez is expected to spend a lot of time with her there.
A source said: “Ariana is renting a stunning house in one of the capital’s most sought-after neighbourhoods.
“But anyone who thinks they might catch a glimpse of her has no chance, as the place she has found is like a fortress.

“The home has private grounds and is well out of reach of other people, so she’ll be able to totally switch off after filming.
“Dalton is a property expert in the US, so it’s not surprising she has found somewhere so desirable.
“She’s a multi-millionaire, so living in the lap of luxury won’t dent her bank balance, even though it’s costing hundreds of thousands of pounds for her to rent it.
“The house has a sprawling kitchen with top-of-the-range appliances and all the bedrooms feature high-end furniture.

“As well as big reception rooms there is a massive cinema and the private gardens have loads of space for entertaining.
“No expense has been spared in the house. It really is like a palace.”
The singer said in 2013 that playing Glinda on Broadway would be her dream part.
Ariana said she was holding back on working on new music until she had finished filming the Good Witch[/caption]
She began work on the films in June, alongside Brit Cynthia Erivo, who plays Elphaba, The Wicked Witch of the West.
Ariana said she was holding back on working on new music until she had finished filming, which she explained was a whirlwind.
She added: “I know the material like the back of my hand, but I still have so much to learn.”
Ariana said she was giving the role “every piece of me, every minute, every ounce of my heart, my time, my everything I can give it.”
Like her pal Taylor Swift, who lives not far from Ariana’s new pad, the singer has managed to stay out of the spotlight while working on the films, which are due out in 2024 and 2025.
If my house was as nice as Ariana’s new gaff, I’d never leave it either.
Gaga LA Hope
Fans won’t have too long to wait until they can see Lady Gaga back on stage again[/caption]
LADY Gaga wrapped up her sell-out Chromatica Ball world tour at the weekend and I can reveal fans won’t have too long to wait until they can see her back on stage.
The Bad Romance singer is deep in talks to return to Las Vegas for a second residency, following the success of her last set of shows in Nevada.
A source said: “For a long time Gaga wasn’t sure if she would ever perform again due to health problems.
“But Chromatica has helped build her back up again.
“Gaga is one of the biggest stars on the planet again now so it makes perfect sense.”
While she is yet to sign on the dotted line, talks are said to be in advanced stages, with potential shows kicking off late next year.
Gaga’s debut residency, Enigma + Jazz & Piano, saw her take over Park Theatre from the end of 2018 until May this year.
The run of 52 shows took a staggering £70million at the box office.
Gaga was forced to cut short the final date on her Chromatica Ball tour in Miami, Florida, after lightning repeatedly hit near the stadium where she was performing on Saturday.
She will be hoping for a different kind of lucky strike when she next takes to the stage.
Sam in Festive No1 bid
Eurovision hero Sam Ryder is hoping to deny Ladbaby a fifth consecutive Christmas No1 with his own festive release[/caption]
LadBaby, whose real name is Mark Hoyle, has had a four-year run with his sausage roll-based novelty tracks but I can reveal Sam has been working on an original festive belter to be released in the lead up to December 25.
A source said: “Sam is determined to make sure he’s not just a flash in the pan.
“This year really has been the making of him, and what better way to see out 2022 than by releasing a Christmas song.”
YouTuber LadBaby first topped the charts with his charity effort We Built This City in 2018.
Sam is yet to have such impressive success in the charts.
His second-place Eurovision entry Space Man peaked at No2, although the follow-up, Somebody, has struggled to break into the Top 40.
As I first told this summer, his latest release is a floor filler with David Guetta and Sigala called Living Without You.
Time to dig out those sleigh bells, Sam.
Harry’s Wilde night
Harry Styles beamed as he shared the red carpet with his director girlfriend Olivia Wilde at the New York Premiere of Don’t Worry Darling[/caption]
The couple haven’t posed next to each other while promoting their film but did chat.
Away from movies, Harry’s As It Was has now spent a record 14 weeks at No1 in the US.
Not bad for a guy who got his break as a schoolboy on The X Factor.
Adam’s ‘crossed the line’
Most blokes would be counting their lucky stars if Victoria’s Secret beauty Behati Prinsloo was their wife[/caption]
But her husband, Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine, has been accused of doing anything but that[/caption]

The couple are the talk of TikTok after model Sumner Stroh claimed she’d had an affair with him. In a video which was viewed more than 15million times in 24 hours, she shared messages which she alleged had been sent by the musician, who she claims she had dated for a year.

She accused Adam of messaging her months after their split to say he wanted to call his third child, which he’s expecting with Behati, Sumner.
Last night Adam said: “I used poor judgment in speaking with anyone other than my wife in any kind of flirtatious manner.
“I did not have an affair. Nevertheless, I crossed the line.
“My wife and my family is all I care about.”
Kim stripes it lucky
Kim Kardashian was spotted on the prowl in New York wearing tiger-print trousers[/caption]
KIM Kardashian was on the prowl in these tiger-print trousers and boots and it turns out she has already got her claws into something very special.
The reality star was spotted in New York yesterday, with the dangling handle of her furry bag making it look like she had a tail, just as it was revealed she had bought supermodel Cindy Crawford‘s former home.
It means they will be close enough to not have to row over where their four kids are.
