Ariana Grande debuts a new look and discusses her mental health in the latest issue of British Vogue. The pop star is fresh-faced on the cover.
A Whole New Side Of Her
Featuring in the publication's July issue, the singer looks super natural and youthful, a million miles removed from her signature look, which is high-glam with a ponytail and killer cat eye.
The singer's Vogue cover is shot with minimal makeup, showing off her freckles. Her blonde hair is down and loose. She's wearing a black lace dress with metallic straps and appears relaxed.
The "No Tears Left To Cry" hit-maker is well-known for embracing hair extensions for her trademark pony, something she turned to after years of dyeing her hair red to appear on Nickelodeon teen series Victorious and Sam & Cat.
Baring Her Soul As Well As Her Face
Grande's sitdown with Vogue is just as revealing, as she details dealing with PTSD following the Manchester Arena bombing, which happened immediately after her concert in May of last year.
Grande admitted to the publication that she finds the topic difficult to discuss even to this day.
"It's hard to talk about because so many people have suffered such severe, tremendous loss. ... I know those families and my fans, and everyone there experienced a tremendous amount of it as well," she admitted.
The pop star and actress also acknowledged that she doesn't even feel right about discussing her personal experience because it makes her so emotional.
Grande discussed her ongoing issues with anxiety, too, admitting that she thought everybody felt the same way she did.
"My anxiety has anxiety. I've always had anxiety. I've never really spoken about it because I thought everyone had it, but when I got home from tour it was the most severe I think it's ever been," she revealed.
Finding Solace With A New Partner
Grande is no stranger to speaking out, having hit back at an online commenter calling her out for supposedly leaving ex-boyfriend Mac Miller in his time of need.
The singer was open about the fact that Miller's ongoing issues with alcohol abuse led their relationship to be dysfunctional, and made a point of telling the anonymous agitator that women aren't put on this earth purely to service men.
She's since gone public with her new relationship with SNL cast-member Pete Davidson. The two have been commenting back and forth on each other's social media posts, flirting in full view of squealing fans. They also enjoyed a Harry Potter-themed date last week, where both wore robes for their chosen houses.
Davidson gushed over his lady's Wango Tango performance over the weekend, where she returned to her standard brunette look. Grande debuted a teaser of her upcoming single "The Light Is Coming." The said track is part of her forthcoming album Sweetener, which drops next month.
