    Ariana Grande Shared An Old Photo Of Her Ponytail And I'm Impressed By Her Commitment

    "if anything .... she’s consistent"

    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. ⚡️

    It even has its own personality, lol.

    But some people have long debated the authenticity of the 'tail.

    every time we think ariana grande is about to get rid of that tired ass ponytail she doesn’t that’s called marketing

    @ArianaGrande stop wearing that ponytail. I understand your marketing but you're grown. You dont have 2 wear that ponytail to look innocent!

    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.

    It's a weird breath of fresh air to realize that a hugely popular part of Ariana Grande is actually of her own making, and not just part of a marketing ploy by her PR team.

    If you want additional receipts, look at lil' Ari rockin' the ponytail in 2014.

    And here she is in 2010.

    This is from 2010, but it could be from 2000, or 2019, and I'd believe it.

    Here's Ari in 1993.

    That's her birth year, for those of you not in the know.

    We love an authentic queen!!
