Ariana Grande is known for her vocal range as much as she's known for her high ponytail. It is, as the kids say, ICONIC. ⚡️
But some people have long debated the authenticity of the 'tail.
And while some fans, and people she worked closely with*, may think the ponytail is all just part of her carefully culled celeb image, in a photo posted to her Instagram, Ariana proved that she's actually been rocking the look since she was a wee tween. 😱
As someone who's finding it harder and harder to navigate this bleak and superficial news cycle, I personally find this photo to be a little ray of truth sunshine.
If you want additional receipts, look at lil' Ari rockin' the ponytail in 2014.
