Happy Birthday Ariana Grande! The Dangerous Woman singer turned 23 on June 26, and in celebration of the big day, we’re taking a look back at her fabulous year!
Ariana Grande just turned the big 2-3, and we couldn’t be more excited to join in on her birthday festivities! The singer may be a whole year older, but things are only expected to keep going up. But before she blows the candles out, we’re taking a look back at all of Ariana’s golden moments and accomplishments that happened during her 22nd year of life!
We have to say, Ariana had one EPIC year! Let’s start with the music. In May 2016, Ariana released her third studio album, Dangerous Woman, which was chock-full of amazing club hits and soulful ballads, including “Side To Side,” “Let Me Love You,” and the lead single “Dangerous Woman.” And her album topped no.2 on the Billboard Hot 200! Not to mention, before that, Ari embarked on an incredible tour and landed her tons of fun performances on major awards shows including the Billboard Music Awards, and her stellar duet with Christina Aguilera, 35, at The Voice season finale!
But let us remember that Ariana isn’t only about the music; she has many talents. Just ahead of her birthday, on June 16, Ariana announced that she would be releasing her very own MAC cosmetics, full with vibrant lipsticks. And not only is she venturing into the beauty industry with her latest line, but philanthropy as well! Sales from cosmetics collection will all go to the MAC AIDS Fund.
And after selling out of her Ari fragrance in only two minutes, news broke that the singer was being considered for a very prestigious award by the Fragrance Foundation Awards. Wow, beauty and a huge heart!
And did we mention she got to stretch her acting muscles this year? Ariana dominated the Saturday Night Live stage in Mar. 2016, with her spot-on impressions of some of the greatest artists of all time. No one could have done a better Whitney Houston impression! We have to say, Ariana is an incredible woman, and will only continue to get better with time!
