Pop and R&B music sensation Ariana Grande became emotional and revealed her vulnerable side to fans while filming a makeup tutorial.
In a video for Vogue's "Beauty Secrets," Grande discussed her skincare regimen and her retro makeup style, which was inspired by classic Hollywood icons like Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe.
The "Thank U, Next" singer, who has ventured into cosmetics, fragrances, and fashion in recent years, admitted to using Botox and fillers as ways to enhance her looks in the past.
Said the Grammy winner:
“Full transparency, as a beauty person, as I do my lips: I’ve had a ton of lip filler over the years and Botox."
"I stopped in 2018 because I just felt so ... too much. I just felt like hiding, you know?”
Grande started crying, saying she wasn't expecting to get emotional after the revelation.
She tried to regain her composure by laughing it off, adding:
“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."
"And maybe I’ll start again with it, I don’t know. To each their own. Whatever makes you feel beautiful.”
“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 just think aging — it can be such a beautiful thing.”

Grande did, however, entertain the possibility of getting work done in the future.
"Might I get a facelift in 10 years? Might," she chuckled.
"But, these are just thoughts that I feel we should be able to discuss."
"If we're sitting here talking about beauty secrets, f'k it. Let's lay it all out there."
Fans backed her candor 100%, and thanked her for addressing the stigma around female celebrities and cosmetic procedures.
People felt even more connected to Grande and they also shed tears.
The former Voice coach, who began her music career at 15 in the 2008 Broadway production 13, will be returning to her musical theater roots in the musical film adaption of Wicked, which is scheduled for a November 24, 2024 release in U.S. theaters.
