Ariana Grande got emotional while discussing her relationship with botox and other cosmetic injectables with Vogue.
Sharing her skin care routine, the 30-year-old musician got candid about her time with Botox and lip fillers in the past and why she no longer uses any of them.
“Full transparency, as a beauty person, as I do my lips,” Ariana explained in a Sept. 12 video with Vogue, “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?”
“Didn’t expect to get emotional,” the Wicked star continued, before taking a pause in which she seemed to collect herself, before adding with tears in her eyes, “For a long time, beauty was about hiding for me. And now I feel like maybe it’s not.”
The musician also clarified her stance on those that decide to get work done or not.

“Whatever makes you feel beautiful, I do support,” Ariana noted. “But I know for me, I was like, ‘Oh, I wanna 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 think aging is such, it can be such a beautiful thing,” she said, before adding with a laugh, “Now might I get a facelift in 10 years? Might, yeah.”
The cosmetic founder also opened up admitting that she wishes everyone could have open conversations regarding beauty.
“But these are just thoughts that I feel like we should be able to discuss. If we’re sitting here talking about beauty secrets, f–ck it, let’s lay it all out there.”
Ariana reflected on the emotional moment on Instagram.
“Most nervous i’ve been in so long,” she captioned the Sept. 12 post alongside screenshots from the video, “and definitely not the best i’ve ever done my make up but had a very lovely time 🙂 thank you for having me @voguemagazine and for making space for my very Cancerian humanness.”
This was the first major interview Grande had off the tails of her romance with Ethan Slater. Her Wicked costar also showed a large amount of support on social media.
