Ariana Grande


These days, Ariana Grande is all about natural beauty. When she was taking her followers through her skincare routine, the singer revealed that she has stopped getting work done. "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…My relationship with beauty has changed over the years."


Lady Gaga


Lady Gaga and Grande worked on the 2020 song, "Rain On Me" together. Gaga is a big fan of ice baths to help her recover. She shared this photo of herself in one on Instagram. Gaga captioned the post, "Post show routine: ice bath for 5-10 min, hot bath for 20, then compression suit packed with ice packs for 20."


Victoria Monet


Victoria Monet is a frequent collaborator of Grande's. She has written on each of Grande's albums, and the two recorded the song "Got Her Own" together. In an interview with MTV, Monet talked about her love of fitness. "It's really become quite a lifestyle. I think that it's largely in part because I have to be in front of the camera a lot and try on a bunch of clothes that are usually runway-size. They're very small so that it can play with your confidence emotionally. But just making sure that I'm doing my best and transferring my gym work to a healthy eating lifestyle kind of certifies me for a longer and healthier life in general."


Nicki Minaj


Nicki Minaj and Grande are close friends. They have worked on several songs together, including "Bang Bang", "Bed", and "Side to Side." In a 2013 interview with Marie Claire, Minaj talked about her wellness secrets. "When I feel I need to lose weight, I just change what I eat," she explains. "I cut out carbs and sugar. I'll do water and protein and fruit. But I do think that you should work out."




Normani was an opening act for Grande on tour, and they worked together on the song "Bad To You," on the Charlie's Angels soundtrack. She revealed in an interview with Billboard that she's had to get through a lot of hardship. "I've been through a lot, just in my personal life, you know? Even just talking about my parents and what they've been through on top of COVID and trying to get the project out I've just – I've had a lot up against me, but I always manage somehow to pull through as best as I can, and honestly that's by the grace of God and him just giving me the strength to endure and persevere."


Demi Lovato


Demi Lovato and Grande are close friends. They worked on the song "Met Him Last Night" for Lovato's 2021 album. In an interview with Howard Stern, Lovato talked about her overdose and sobriety. "It's been almost two years since I used, and I don't wake up every day struggling anymore because I'm choosing it for myself. Now, I understand the pitfalls of how deep and dark it can get, and how desperate I can get, and I never want to feel that again."


Troye Sivan


Troye Sivan has been friends with Grande for a long time. The two worked on the song "Dance To This." In an interview with Byrdie, Sivan talked about finding self-confidence. "I think the thing that is inspiring, [this] sounds so, like, ego vibes, but honestly, it's like an internal comfortability and confidence that I have found recently. In the last year, I have found that I'm way more excited about everything because I feel like I can handle it way better than I used to."


Lea Michele


Lea Michele worked with Grande on the first season of Scream Queens. Michele shared some of her fitness secrets with People. "It's so important for me to stress that being healthy is not about being a gym rat. It's not about being 90 lbs. This is really how I live every single day." 


Meghan Trainor


Meghan Trainor and Grande are friends, and they both worked on the 2015 single "Boys Like You." In an interview with ET Canada, Trainor talked about losing weight after having her first child. "I worked every day and challenged myself. I was like, 'If I can survive a C-section, I can do anything.' I  was very dedicated and I started seeing the pounds come off like one week at a time. My confidence level was a good eight or nine."


Elizabeth Gillies


Elizabeth Gillies has known Grande since they were children. They starred in 13: The Musical on Broadway and the TV show Victorious. Gillies has also appeared in several of Grande's music videos. She talked about working on the Dynasty reboot to Town & Country Magazine. "It's really everything I've ever wanted to do. I figured I wouldn't get a chance to break down or cry until maybe halfway through the season, and it happened in episode two. So she's crying, she's laughing, she's being vulnerable, she has a wild love triangle going on—I have so much to do as an actor that I'm never bored. And I get to do it wearing designer clothes."


Bowen Yang


Bowen Yang is working with Grande on Wicked, and the two have been seen hanging out. In an interview with GQ, he talked about being a cast member on Saturday Night Live, and how he deals with reactions to jokes. "I think the sooner you take responsibility for what reaction you want to get out of an audience, the better," he said. "There's this joke that Anna Drezen wrote for Melissa Villaseñor, where Melissa plays every teen-girl murder suspect on Law & Order. And there's this joke in there that is like, We stabbed her as a joke, but she took it the wrong way and started bleeding! If your intention is to stab someone, do it. You can't absolve yourself from the consequence of someone bleeding, you know?"
