Grande revealed the desire in an episode of Podcrushed with co-hosts Penn Badgley, Nava Kavelin, and Sophie Ansari.

The singer recalled in the podcast that she was responding to the question: "If you could have dinner with anyone living or dead, who would it be?" 


The meeting took place when Grande was doing her Nickelodeon shows, so her audience of fans was quite young the singer recalled in Podcrushed. Still, she decided to be authentic with her answer.

Before answering, Grande asked for permission from parents in the room to divulge her answer, and they gave her their blessing.

“I was like, ‘Oh, you're so cute. Mom and Dad, is it OK if I give the real answer?’ And they were like, ‘Sure, what’s the answer?’ and I was like, ‘I mean, Jeffrey Dahmer is pretty fascinating,' " she revealed.

"I think I would have loved to have met him. Y’know, maybe with a third party or someone involved. But I have questions," she reminisced in Podcrushed about how she elaborated on the answer in the fan meeting.

The hosts of the podcast burst out laughing hearing how it all went down.

Grande shared with Podcrushed the reception she got from the parents after the surprising answer. "The parents were like, 'We’ll explain it later, sweetie,'" she laughed, adding, "And I was like, ‘I’ll just sing ‘Problem’ and go home."


Jeffrey Dahmer killed 17 young men and boys in and around the Milwaukee, Wisconsin, area from 1978 to 1991, ATI reported. The serial killer did not just murder his victims, but also defiled their corpses.

Dahmer was caught by police on July 22, 1991, HISTORY reported.

Authorities searched the house and found disturbing evidence of the serial killer's grisly crimes, HISTORY reported, including photo albums filled with pictures of body parts as well as human remains scattered throughout the premises.

Several heads were stored in the freezer, two skulls were placed on top of the computer, and in the corner of the bedroom, there was a 57-gallon drum containing decomposing bodies. Police also found evidence that suggested that Dahmer was eating some of his victims, HISTORY reported.
