I really don’t see what the big deal about it is, why can’t people just relax and look at the positives instead of always finding the negatives. She looks great and that’s that, case closed im out.

There is nothing wrong with that outfit, it doesnt even reveal a lot. I dont know why people are over reacting about this. This outfit doesnt even take away the fact that shes still a better role model than most. Yes, she’s growing up but atleast she’s showing it differently and not partying or doing drugs, or exploiting sex just to prove it. And we should keep it about the MUSIC, her fans arent going to buy her albun because of how she looks on her album cover, they’ll buy it if they like her music. Besides, this is just one of the options for her album. She might not even use it.

I totally agree, she is 20 years old! In my opinion she is more decent in this pic than when she shows her stomach. Her butt isn’t showing really, and its not innaproriate lingerie really, like you can’t see anything! She looks sweet and young in my opion, it’s just for fun!

I think that us people take it all so seriously just because she is a child star but all child stars have to grow up at one point. She is 20 now and I would like to hope that she is responsible enough to know what she is doing. The only problem I would see with te cover is her young fan base wanting to dress like her. Other than that, let her be herself.

Then parents need to start teaching their kids, that if you’re not 18 or older, you can’t do everything you see your fav celeb do. Its not her job to be the example, its a parents job to set those rules & examples! I grew up watching older siblings, and was told that I couldn’t do what they did, all the time.

Who wrote this article!

Posted at 5:00 PM on August 1, 2013  

I don’t think its too much for a 20 yr old to wanna look like a young woman, instead of a little girl. I think that whoever wrote this article, overreacted a bit. That kind of growing up doesn’t happen over night, its gradual. Some of her lyrics reflect that as well, but she isn’t moving anywhere near as fast as some of those others!

Well, it’s not the problem with her growing up, it’s just a more creepy than cute or sexy because she looks like a lolita.

I think it would be less controversial if she didn’t resemble Lolita. Being sexy or cute or youthful is fine for a 20 year old; it’s when you try to be all of those at once that tints start making people uncomfortable. We don’t want her to stop wearing corsets and pink if that’s what she likes, but things like hair, makeup and setting all have to work together to put forth an image, and what she’s putting forth with this look is a little girl who is being treated like a sex object. Changing the makeup, hair and setting while keeping her outfit could make it seem more playful and age-appropriate, instead of giving thewrong impression.

Yes, I would agree with that, she just does that sort of puppy dog face while wearing lingerie and in a pink and rose setting and it doesn’t really make sense. A different setting a facial expression would improve the cover.

To be honest, I like it, but I’m a bit confused on what her target is, is she trying to look sexy or sweet? Both sexy and this little girl act is kind of a weird mix.

This is ridiculous, the people that doesnt like the artwork don’t know Ariana. We all know that she loves pink, flowers .. sheer cute accessories and corsets/crop tops. I’ve seen this corset 3TIMES on her.
It’s her style her personality. She posted a picture of it on instagram and she wears it on her Baby I Artwork.

This cd cover is the one and only Ariana Grande, you know that if you follow her. She’s not trying to be anything. She’s being herself.
& what if she’s the next Mariah Carey? It’s better than all thoses crappy non sense music you listen to on the radio. Bye.

She 20, stop acting like she’s 16.
It’s her album cover, she has to make it interesting & eye grabbing.
Just like she kissed mac miller in the way, that’s something you don’t see everyday & for her video to be successful she had to grab peoples attention.
All you people saying she looks like a whore need to re-think this.

She may be 20 and she can make her own decisions the reason why some people may not like this is because on TV we all see her as sweet and innocent but she’s growing up and you know but she could wear another outfit that would go perfectly with the theme of her album. I also think that her voice is amazing she’s like the mariah carey but even better, so i think she should express herself as she wants even if others don’t like it, it’s the same with miley Cyrus people say she’s a whore and is stupid but she’s really expressing herself not like she’s stupid or is a whore, but i guess what Im trying to say is ariana may be doing this stuff it really matters if she is being true to whoshe is

Yes she may seem sweet and innocent on TV, but on TV she’s playing a character, not herself. So you can’t compare who she is, on screen, to who she is in every day life. And if her album has a theme at all, its romance or falling in love, expressed in a sweet, flirty & sexy way. So her outfit does fit the theme of the album!

I don’t like the cover art per say but I know the album will be great. I really don’t care although I was surprized to see what she was wearing but then again she is 20 and its her life, her decisions.

I don’t like it. But she’s 20 and a grown adult. I don’t think she NEEDED to wear that, people love her voice regardless if she ‘sex-up’ her image or not. But I’d thats what she’s comfortable with….
Though it does feel like it came out of left field….haha.

Its not out of left field, nor is it anything new, its what she likes, and has done before. If thats how she likes to dress up, how is she sexing anythhing up, thats just your interpretation.

I don’t think that’s it too mature because she is old enough but I feel it’s a different direction than she normally goes. Ariana is always seen a s this sweet poppy teen star and I feel like this cover is her trying to differ from that. She should stick to the image that she is known for and that all her fans know her for rather than trying to change it.

Nothing in this cover is different or new! The corsets, etc have all been done before. She’s not just a sweet poppy teen, she’s 20yrs old, has worn looks like this, aswell as florals, Peplum tops, tank tops, fluffy dresses, shift dresses, some modern looks, some 60’s or 70’s inspired styles. All because thats what she likes, its all apart of a style that will keep growing over time.

Your fooling yourself to think that a person her age will just stick to the same image forever. Even if thats what she’s known for today, she’s young, and her style will grow and change a million times, that’s what any young person does. Young entertainers are no different, and people need to stop trying to lock them into that sweet / innocent (Child-like) image, they need to grow up at some point. No young person is just gonna remain a sweet little thing forever!

Shame on your Mother and Father for not demanding that you are respected as a young girl.

Posted at 6:58 PM on August 1, 2013  

Her mother and father are very much involved in her life, and career, but show me a 20yr old who will allow a parent to tell them what to do! Ariana is an adult, and this is part of how she dresses herself. I say part because her style goes far beyond that. Its not up to any of us, or her parents, to tell her what to wear. And she is very much respected, as a “grown woman,” and as a talented person!

Do your homework before you judge, no matter how young she looks to you, she’s not 12, she’s 20, and its not managers & PR people doing that, that’s part of how she dresses herself. I say part because that’s not all she wears, but it is all of her own choosing.

You don’t speak for her entire fan base, they are people of all ages, even if she is on Nickelodeon, its not just little kids. Her character on Nickelodeon isn’t a child, she’s a teen in high school, who is old enough to live in an apartment with a roommate and have a babysitting job.

Anyone have any complaints about under age kids trying to do that?

Teach minors that they can’t follow everything an older person does, instead of trying to tell a 20 year old how to live her life!
