Ariana Grande is the hardest work 23-year-old in the world, according to Grande herself.
Grande posted a new photo on Instagram of herself wearing a coat on the sidewalk looking very proud of herself. And in the caption, she boldly declared herself to be the hardest working 23-year-old in the world.
"When you're cute but you're also the hardest working 23 year old human being on earth #cute #butalso #CEO #unf---witable #haventsleptinyears", the caption reads.

While Grande received some criticism for the post, she has indeed been working consistently for several years now. Starting off on Victorious, Grande acted on Nickelodeon from 2010 through 2014, appearing on iCarly and her own spinoff, Sam and Cat. She also co-starred in the NBC production of Hairspray Live! this past December.
Meanwhile, Grande has put out studio albums in three of the past four years, all of which have gone Platinum. She has gone on two tours, including the lengthy 2015 Honeymoon Tour. She is about to embark on her Dangerous Woman Tour starting Feb. 2.
Regardless, Grande has faced criticism for her statement, as she has in the past for previous comments. Last month, Grande took to Twitter to detail an encounter in which a fan asked her boyfriend Mac Miller if he was "hitting that," referring to the pop star. Grande felt "sick and objectified" by this.
Grande went on to explain how she is "a piece of meat that a men gets to utilize for his pleasure," adding, "I'm an adult human being in a relationship with a man who treats me with love and respect." She then received backlash from others who said she presented herself in a sexual manner in her videos and performances. However, Grande hit back by noting that just because she's open with her sexuality doesn't mean she should be disrespected.
