Ariana Grande got emotional in a recent video as she admitted she's had a 'ton' of cosmetic procedures over the years.
In a candid video with Vogue Beauty Secrets, Ariana revealed she spent years getting Botox and lip fillers until she stopped in 2018, aged 25, when it became 'too much.'
The 30-year-old singer and actor — who plays Glinda in the upcoming film adaptation of Wicked — said she wanted to give her fans 'full transparency.'
In the video, she appeared to be holding back tears as she confessed: "I just felt, like, hiding, you know?
"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."
She went on to explain her reasoning for taking a step away from cosmetic procedures and her acceptance of ageing.
"I know, for me, I was just like, I wanna see my well-earned cry lines and smile lines," she said. "I hope my smile lines get deeper and deeper and I laugh more and more.
"I just think ageing can be such a beautiful thing."
But, the 'Thank U, Next' singer hasn't ruled out getting cosmetic work done further down the line.
"Now might I get a face lift in 10 years? Might, yeah," she laughed. "But these are just thoughts I feel like we should be able to discuss.
"If we're talking about beauty secrets, f*** it," she continued. "Let's lay it all out there."
She also spoke about her ever-changing beauty routine over the years.
"I feel like my relationship to beauty has changed so much over the years especially because I started so young," she explained.
"I, over the years, used makeup as a disguise or as something to hide behind and more and more and more hair, more and more thicker eyeliner...and that can be so beautiful at times.
"And I still do have love for it and appreciation for it," she continued. "But I think as I get older, I don't love that being the intention behind it anymore. I think of it as self-expression now and accentuating what is here.
"Our relationships to beauty are so personal. Like we're here talking about beauty secrets. Isn't the secret that all just wanna feel our best and be loved?"
Posting about the video on her Instagram, the star told her followers that she was ‘nervous’ about it.
Sharing a number of screengrabs from the video, she wrote: “Most nervous I’ve been in so long and definitely not the best I’ve ever done my (sic) make-up but had a very lovely time :).
