    I loved her lipstick!!!

  • K.O.H

    Why does her face look like that?

  • Tiny but Mighty

    I am pretty sure all of the comments acknowledging the fact that she’s truly not happy and is forced to be, say and do EVERYTHING to a point where she’s holding her tears in that uncomfortable dress, looking super underweight is truly mind blowing. I cannot be the only one #FREEARIANA

    Y'all arguing down here triying to figure out what she did to her face and she's just not wearing eyeliner💀💀

    • Jonathan Beer

      @K.O.H yeah but like 6 years ago, everything here is bc she is aging and she losted a lot of weight, go check the song associaton game video, she looks the same but just seems more mature bc now we know she is married and she talks different too, also she fixed her eyebrow lift, everything else is because she is getting old.

    • K.O.H

      She did a nose job too

  • Natalie

    She looks and sounds SO different here! I can’t put my finger on what it is though.

    • Natalie

      She looks like she wants to be Bella Poarch all of a sudden.

    • K.O.H

      She got another nose job too

    • Tiny but Mighty

      Saying this out of pure concern 💕 I love her, and had never seen her like this!!!

      She’s tired. She looks skinny, pale, and like she’s holding her tears the whole time.

    Ariana's music music is a combination of pop and R&b but they refuse to play her music on R&b radio stations, I can't figure that out.

    I like that Ariana isn't spray painted brown in this interview. Maybe she'll stop doing that for music videos too. Her natural skin looks so much nicer.

    • SenoritaBlahBlahBlah

      @Indoor Greg Nope. She's usually overly spray tanned to the extent that she doesn't look like a white girl. Even her ex, Pete Davidson, acknowledged it. I guess she stopped needing to pretend to be biracial to sell music. Looks much better. Based on your other comments, you seem really offended that people are correctly pointing out that she's normally spray tanned way too dark. Get over it. She is, and she looks way better when she's not. Also, she uses spray tan because real tans, especially that dark, would've already destroyed her skin, doofus.

    • Indoor Greg

      She doesn’t spray tan herself “brown” lol it’s usually just the lighting

  • Wish You The Best

    Those white stickers are there to cover plastic surgery lines?

    Another day, another plastic surgery! She still looks good, but she’s so close to ruining her face. Tell her before it’s too late.

      you don’t seem to be a licensed doctor so u really have no authority over what she does with her face. if she’s ‘ruining’ her face then let her lol
