Is Ariana Grande black?

Ariana Grande is not black. She is of Italian descent and was born in Florida, which makes her Italian-American. She tans herself, but that doesn’t mean she is blackfishing or anything. Ariana refers to herself as ‘half Sicilian and half Abruzzese.’ However, people are arguing about the difference in her skin tone during her career over the past years.

Ariana Grande was born on June 26, 1993, in Boca Raton, Florida, the United States, as Ariana Grande-Butera. Her nationality is American, and her ethnicity is Italian (Sicilian and Abruzzese). She is the daughter of Joan Grande and Edward Butera, both of whom are of Italian descent. Her dad served at a visual computerization firm, and her mom was the CEO of ‘Steed McCann Communications.’

During 2008–2010, she looked really pale, and that’s her normal skin tone. However, from 2011 to 2017, it seems as if she has gone darker than her normal skin color. Since she is Italian, it could be because she gets tanned easier than others, or it’s just the angle, lighting, or just a really bad tan. Please note that Ariana is not trying to be black or act black; it’s just the tan.

Do people see Ariana Grande as a white woman?

I checked out her childhood pictures. She looks pretty much like a Latino, Indian, or Middle Eastern kid to me. (I am an Indian.). Those who are saying that she uses tan seem to be correct, as she is more tanned now than in these pictures but was not “white” in her childhood.

She is of Italian descent. Italy is located in Europe. People from Europe are considered white in the US. But remember, Italians, Greeks, Portuguese, and Spaniards are not Nordic countries. Therefore, they have tan Mediterranean skin and black or brown hair. They are very similar to Middle Eastern countries such as Iran, Lebanon, Azerbaijan, Armenia, and Turkey.

She’s of Italian descent. She even still has the name. She’s a little darker than someone from farther north would be. Still, for some reason that is unfathomable to me, people from around the Mediterranean are considered to be white if they are from the north shore but non-white if they are from the south shore, even if some from the north shore are darker-skinned than some from the south shore.

People from the eastern shore—well, it depends. Jews in Israel are largely considered to be white, while Palestinians are not, but I don’t think I’m alone in having trouble telling the difference between them at first sight. Lebanese and Syrians are considered to be non-white (unless your name is Steve Jobs).

I haven’t gotten a clear answer about Turks. Armenians are treated mostly as white, unless your name is Kardashian. Of course, if your world is made up of black people and white people, with no other possibilities, then she is white. The whole concept is fucked up beyond words.

Aside from a tan, why does Ariana Grande’s face look so different?

So, because they turned off comments, I added that faces can change dramatically from 18 to 28. I don’t know that she’s had work done, but she might have just gotten her adult face. These are the images they chose for their post. Here’s my face from 18 to 28. My entire face looks different, IMO, but I didn’t have surgery. The square jaw I had looked much better.

You can lose fat over the period, but you can’t lose nose cartilage. It’s so silly when I read people fighting over it. She’s had nose tip-work done and possible eyebrow lifts to achieve the sultry look. The thing is, either way, she always has and continues to look fab, with or without the minor tweaks. So yeah, the majority of her attractiveness comes from her genes.

Aside from a tan, why does Ariana Grande’s face look so different?

I’m not going to deny or say she didn’t get a nose job because of all the makeup she wears, and it’s probably just contouring. But I think since she likes wearing “cat eyeliner,” it makes her eyes look smaller (as well as eyelash extensions); like I said before, contour probably makes her nose look smaller, and so on.

Also going through puberty. So she looks different because of puberty, makeup, and also how (well, I don’t know about these last few days, too) happy she is with her life right now. I hope I answered your question.

Is Ariana Grande Mexican?

She’s an interesting character, Ariana Grande. I’ve researched her ethnic background, and it turns out her ancestry is primarily Italian-American, with some Sicilian roots. It makes her essentially what the Yankees call “spicy”white”—white but spicy. And she looked at the part. The thing is, in her Disney Channel days, Miss Grande wasn’t all that ‘ethnic-looking.’

She went through phases. There was the Latina phase. The black-ish phase. And even a brief Asian phase, which quickly came to a halt when she was accused of the now-capital crime of “cultural appropriation,. Playing with different looks and styles and switching skin tones has always been this lady’s thing.

Picture collages of her throughout the year make her look like a playable character in an online game with different “skins” a player could adopt. It’s odd, but also cool in a sense.

Anyway, Miss Areola Grande is a white Caucasian lady. But the beauty of genetic diversity is that even within a single “race,” there’s plenty of diversity. I mean, even in the country Grande’s ancestors hail from, Italy, there’s a pretty huge difference between Sicilians and North Italians. Like the blonde dude from the Spencer and Hill films, he was Northern Italian and could easily have passed for a German or Swedish dude.

Ariana Grande isn’t Mexican. “Mexican” isn’t a race, anyway. Grande is Italian-American. White, but well-seasoned and with a multitude of wildly different looks and a penchant for tanning heavily and playing around with different styles that leave people wondering just what the hell she is… and all this inventing and reinventing of herself has worked well for the little lady from Disney Channel with her four-octave singing range, so good for her.

Is Black Pink better than Ariana Grande?

No. It is just my opinion. Ariana Grande has a better voice; she can hit high notes, and her voice is very stable. She has better songs than Blackpink and always shows something new. Ariana has sold more albums and concerts and has had more sales than Blackpink. Ariana has broken many records that are more than just YouTube views. Overall, Ariana Grande is better than Blackpink.

Blackpink are an amazing group, but you can’t compare them to Ariana. She’s a huge influence in music and beats them in everything except dance, but dance isn’t as important in the pop industry.

Though Blackpink is very talented, I wouldn’t compare them to Ariana Grande. K-pop is good, but what puts me off is that Koop fans act like their music, and the group they are in is better than everyone else’s, which is so not true.

The guy below even said the K-pop group is better than MJ. Which obviously is not true. They give their acts too much hype, and when people present their opinions, they can’t take criticism and basically almost drive people to suicide or try to make their lives miserable, which I find very tedious and childish. If you do that, no one will want to endorse or promote K-pop.

Just because BLACKPINK is emerging very successfully and has surpassed Ariana Grande does not ultimately mean they are better than her. She has broken and set many records and has sold more than 50 million, and Ariana’s voice is LEGENDARY. ALL KPOP STANS READING THIS POST, just because you think K-pop is superior to any other music genre does not actually mean it is.

Does Ariana Grande have a fake tan?

Yes, Ariana Grande has a fake tan. She has natural pale skin. You can see her before and after becoming the Ariana Grande stage persona that everybody knows. She is a R’n B singer, and it’s more cool to act as an exotic girl than a normal white teenager.

You know, almost all the greatest R’n B singers are of African heritage. I see her on the pathway to becoming the next Rachel Dolezal (a white person who tries to pass as a black person).

Is Ariana Grande black?

She is Italian; she gets a spray tan because no one has time for skin cancer, but the spray is the color her skin would be if she went on a beach vacation. Unlike what many people realize, there are a lot of kinds of “white people.” Armenians, Georgians, Persians, Italians, Greeks, Spaniards, etc., are “white” just like Swedes, Finns, and Norwegians, but they have totally different typical looks. 

White people can be super porcelain, olive-toned, gold-toned, etc. TONS of celebrities get spray tans; many are much paler than you think. Chrissy Teigen, all the Kardashians, Ashley Graham, etc etc.

Does Ariana Grande have a fake tan? She used to be so pale as a kid and teen, and her skin color drastically changed to darker.

Her color didn’t drastically change. She uses tanning, obviously, but her skin tone has been consistent throughout the years, even though she started tanning a bit more in 2015/2016. In those pictures, you can see a lot more than her skin color has always been the same. Most people photoshop them a lot darker to make fun of her, but she remains physically the same.

Is Ariana Grande black?

Also, she is South Italian, with Greek and North African origins, so she has never been a very pale girl, and you can see it in some of her childhood/teenage pictures. Also, as I mentioned earlier, a lot of pictures need to be edited or in better lighting. I could go on and on. She never blackfished or tried to sell herself as a different ethnicity.

Is Ariana Grande religious?

Yes, but not really. Ariana used to be a Roman Catholic, but when her brother came out as gay, and the community was saying that Frankie would go to Hell, Ariana didn’t want to accept that, so she converted to Kaballah.

What a supportive step-sister! Afterward, she hadn’t said anything about her religion in a long time, so I don’t know what she’s doing now. (Most likely kabbalah or atheist). I do what religion Ariana is, and I don’t care what religion you are. Just respect one another and do not attack someone who is just trying to be themselves.

Is Ariana Grande really an Italian? Why does she look more like a Spanish or Mexican?

Let’s clarify some things:

  • She is not Italian but American of Italian ancestry.
  • Mexicans are mainly mestizos, but a significant minority of them look European, with their main European input being Spanish; Spanish people are phenotypically very similar to Italians, so she easily passes/looks as someone from Spain.
  • Ariana Grande looks typically Italian. People might perceive her as “brown” because of the tan and makeup, which gives her an exotic look. Remove it, and she looks like a standard Italian girl.

Ariana looks very Mediterranean. Italians and Spaniards are Mediterranean people. Many Latin Americans, such as Mexicans, also have Mediterranean phenotypes.

Ariana Grande is not Italian; she’s American from Florida with Italian ancestry. Mexican isn’t a race or ethnicity, so of course, she can pass as Mexican; even pale, blonde, blue-eyed Germans or full-blooded Japanese can pass as Mexicans. Spaniards are European and look very close to Italians so Ariana Grande can pass also as a Spaniard. Ariana Grande is an American, but she can look Italian, Spaniard, Mexican, or even Canadian and Brazilian.


Ariana Grande is NOT black. Who made this up? Coming from a person like me who’s black, I ABSOLUTELY KNOW Ariana Grande is not black. Honestly, does she look black to you? She has STRAIGHT HAIR, not CURLY, not CRINKY, not WAVY. She has Lighter skin than most people who are mixed. And lastly, she has a long nose. So, how could she possibly be black?

Now, everything I was saying was just opinion, but let’s get down to the facts. Her full name is Ariana Grande-Butera. and the name Butera is Italian. She is of Italian descent. And her grandma is also part North African and Greek. So technically, she is American, Italian, North African, Greek, etc. (for those people who think North Africans are black, they’re not!). You could describe North Africans as Arabs.

Most North Africans look like the picture above. Anyway, I hope this answers your question. (and for those who thought my answer was racist, sorry, I didn’t mean to affect anyone in any way. I get annoyed when people can’t tell the difference between races. It’s something all of us humans should be able to do). And this question has been asked so many times, and I don’t feel that Ariana Grande should be mistaken for something she’s not.
