Ariana Grande felt emotional while discussing previous cosmetic treatments, with her eyes watering up as she emphasised how ‘wonderful’ the process of ageing can be.
The 30-year-old has amassed a worldwide fan base as a result of her chart-topping songs, with many of her Arianators drawing inspiration from her unique beauty styles, which range from her winged eyeliner to her tight, high ponytail.
However, in a new video, the Wicked star revealed that her investment in beauty was once a method for her to hide rather than express her inner self, as it is today.
Ariana was taking her followers on an 11-minute tour of how she applies her own make-up when she mentioned getting Botox and lip fillers some years ago.
‘Full transparency as a beauty person, as I do my lips, I had a ton of lip filler over the years and Botox. I stopped in 2018 ‘cause I just felt so… too much. I just felt like hiding, you know?’ she said in the video for Vogue.
The performer paused at this moment in the YouTube video, a smile spreading over her face as her eyes welled up with tears.
‘Didn’t expect to get emotional,’ she said, as she chuckled nervously.
The double Grammy Award winner then pretended that her arms were a clapperboard, jokingly quipping: ‘Take 300.’
She continued: ‘For a long time beauty was about hiding for me. And now I feel like maybe it’s not since I stopped getting fillers and Botox – and maybe I’ll start again someday, I don’t know. To each their own, whatever makes you feel beautiful, I do support.
‘But I know for me, it was just like, oh! I want to see my well-earned cry lines and smile lines, I hope my smile lines get deeper and deeper, and I laugh more and more, and I just think ageing is just such a… it can be such a beautiful thing.’
Ariana added that there could be a possibility that she might have more cosmetic procedures in the future, stating: ‘Now might I get a facelift in 10 years? I might, yeah!’
The Thank U, Next singer said how she believes that people should be free to ‘put it all out there’ while discussing ‘beauty secrets’ with her followers.
Several fans commented on the YouTube video commending Ariana on how open and vulnerable she was, with one writing: ‘I appreciate Ariana for being honest and transparent about the Botox and fillers she had over the years it’s not easy admitting that to the whole world so props to her.’
‘I’m actually glad she talked about the fillers and Botox and how these things can be used to hide your insecurities, but also go way far beyond and how she moved past that, it’s beautiful. Congrats Ari, hope you feel more and more comfortable in your skin.’
Another admirer stated that seeing the video caused them to “cry.”
‘The way Arianna was able to be so vulnerable and real with the camera just goes to show that everyone is human,’ they added.
‘Even the people we look up to the most in life have their insecurities and have moments where they don’t feel at their best. I just have to say thank you miss Grande for showing us true beauty.’
