What is Ariana Grande's net worth?

Ariana Grande is an American singer, songwriter, and actress who has a net worth of $240 million. In some recent years, Ariana Grande has been one of the highest-paid and most popular celebrities on the planet. As of this writing, Ariana has more than 380 million followers on Instagram alone. She has roughly 34 million followers on TikTok, 80 million followers on Twitter (now deactivated), and 52 million subscribers on YouTube. Ariana easily earns at least $20-30 million in a given year. Between June 2019 and June 2020, Ariana earned an astonishing $70 million from her various endeavors.

Ariana Grande currently holds 33 Guinness World Records. These records include the most songs to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, most followers on Spotify for a female artist, and fastest hat-trick of UK No. 1 singles by a female artist.

Her career began in the entertainment world with acting, particularly her role as Cat Valentine in the Nickelodeon television series "Victorious" and its spinoff "Sam & Cat." These roles showcased her comedic talent and provided a platform for her musical pursuits.

Grande's transition into the music world was marked by her debut album, "Yours Truly," released in 2013. The album's success, led by the hit single "The Way," quickly established her as a significant presence in the pop music scene. Her powerful and distinctive voice, often compared to that of Mariah Carey, set her apart from her contemporaries.

Her subsequent albums, including "My Everything" (2014), "Dangerous Woman" (2016), "Sweetener" (2018), and "Thank U, Next" (2019), have continued to cement her status as a pop sensation. These releases have spawned numerous hit singles, such as "Bang Bang," "No Tears Left to Cry," "7 Rings," and "Thank U, Next." Her blend of pop, R&B, and trap elements, combined with personal and relatable lyrics, has resonated with a broad audience.

In addition to her music, Grande has been involved in various philanthropic efforts and advocacy for mental health awareness, LGBTQ rights, and gender equality. Her social media presence has also contributed to her fame, making her one of the most followed individuals on platforms like Instagram.

Ariana Grande's impact on the music industry has been recognized with numerous awards, including Grammy Awards, Billboard Music Awards, and American Music Awards. Her tours have been notable for their elaborate productions and her powerful live vocal performances.

Early Life

Grande was born in Boca Raton, Florida, on June 26, 1993. She began studying voice and acting while in elementary school. In Florida, she performed as part of the Little Palm Theatre for Young People and then for the Fort Lauderdale Children's Theater.

In 2008, she was cast in the hit Broadway musical 13. At this point, she left high school and began being homeschooled in order to perform in the production. She was then cast as Cat Valentine on Nickelodeon's sitcom Victorious in 2009. The show's final episode aired on February 2, 2013. She also appeared in episodes of iCarly and provided the voice of Princess Diaspro for the Winx Club.

Success

Grande's debut full-length album Yours Truly—originally titled Daydreamin'—was released on August 30, 2013. The album, which featured appearances by artists Big Sean and Mac Miller, briefly hit #1 on the US Billboard top 200 chart. It reportedly sold between 100,000 and 120,000 copies in its first week and was #1 on iTunes in over 30 countries practically overnight.

She released her second studio album, My Everything, one year later in August 2014. It debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 and sold 169,000 copies in its first week. Between her first two albums, she sold over two million albums worldwide. Grande's third solo album, Dangerous Woman, debuted in May 2016.

Grande has also toured the world extensively. According to Billboard, her Dangerous Woman tour grossed $71 million. (That's gross earnings, not profits, yet it was still enough to rank as one of the highest-grossing tours in the world in 2017.)

In 2019, she had two #1 albums—Sweetener and Thank U, Next—within six months of each other. Grande also became the youngest and only the fourth female artist ever to headline the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in April 2019.

As of 2023, Grande has released six studio albums, including her latest, "Positions," which arrived in 2020.

Earnings

On average, Grande has earned $20–30 million per year from her various endeavors. Between June 2018 and June 2019, she earned $50 million. She grossed (before taxes) $1 million for every stop of her 34-stop Sweetener World Tour.

Grande was paid $8 million for both days that she performed at California's Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in 2019.

Endorsements

In 2016, Grande released a limited edition handbag with Coach; debuted a line of lip shades with MAC Cosmetics that donated all proceeds to the MAC AIDS Fund; launched a fashion line with Lipsy London; and collaborated with Brookstone and artist Wenqing Yan to create cat ear headphones.

She became a brand ambassador for Reebok in 2017 and partnered with Starbucks for the launch of the Cloud Macchiato beverage in 2019. In the summer of 2019, luxury French fashion house Givenchy also unveiled Grande as the face of its Fall-Winter campaign.

Additionally, Grande has appeared in commercials for Macy's, T-Mobile, and Apple, as well as for her own fragrances.

r.e.m. beauty

In December 2020, Ariana licensed her name, image, and likeness exclusively to Morphe Cosmetics and its parent, Forma Brands. The line debuted shortly thereafter at Ulta Beauty. In May 2022, it won "Best New Brand" at the Allure Best of Beauty Awards. In January 2023, it was revealed that Ariana had acquired the physical assets of the brand for $15 million from Forma Brands after the company filed for bankruptcy earlier in the month.

Fragrances

Ariana Grande has released several fragrances with Luxe Brands. To date, her fragrances have generated over $1 billion in gross revenue, thanks largely to the three fragrances Moonlight, Sweet Like Candy, and Ari by Ariana Grande.

Celebrities typically earn an upfront fee to produce a fragrance, then a 5% royalty on gross sales. A 5% royalty on $1 billion in gross sales would be $50 million. It's possible Ariana's gross royalty percentage could be 10% based on various milestones or above a certain level of annual sales.

Personal Life

Grande's parents Joan Grande, the CEO of Hose-McCann Communications, and Edward Butera, a graphic design firm owner, are separated. She has an older half-brother, Frankie Grande, who is an entertainer and producer.

Grande dated actor Graham Phillips from 2008 to 2011. In 2012, Grande recorded "The Way" with late rapper Mac Miller, and the two went on to date from 2016 until May 2018. Shortly after her split from Miller, Grande started dating actor and comedian Pete Davidson. The two announced their engagement in June 2018 but ultimately called it off and ended their relationship in October 2018.

In December 2020 Ariana announced her engagement to luxury real estate agent Dalton Gomez. The couple married in a private ceremony at her home in Montecito in May 2021. Her wedding dress photos were among the most-liked Instagram posts, with more than 25 million likes.

Although Grande was raised Roman Catholic, she has since abandoned Catholicism, noting her opposition to the church's stance on homosexuality. Since the age of 12, she has followed the teachings of Kabbalah.

In terms of Grande's health, she has stated that she is hypoglycemic. Additionally, following the Manchester Arena bombing in 2017, she discussed having post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and anxiety. In 2018, she announced on social media that she almost pulled out of her performance in the television special A Very Wicked Halloween due to anxiety.

Grande endorsed Senator Bernie Sanders's second presidential bid in November 2019. She has also been vegan since 2013 and, at press time, owns five dogs—several of which she has rescued.

Philanthropy

In 2003, when Grande was ten years old, she co-founded the South Florida youth singing group Kids Who Care, which performed at fundraising events. (The group raised over $500,000 for charities in 2007 alone.) In 2009, she performed and taught music and dance to children in Gugulethu as a member of the charitable organization Broadway in South Africa.

She was featured alongside actresses Bridgit Mendler and Kat Graham in Seventeen's 2013 public campaign, "Delete Digital Drama," which aimed to put an end to online bullying. That same year, after watching the film Blackfish, she began to speak out against SeaWorld and urged fans to stop supporting the theme park chain.

In 2015, Grande performed with Miley Cyrus at the Happy Hippie Foundation's "Backyard Sessions" to raise money to help homeless and LGBT youths. Additionally, Grande headlined the Dance On the Pier event, part of New York City's LGBT Pride Week.

In 2016, Grande joined Madonna to raise funds for orphaned children in Malawi and recorded "Better Days" with Victoria Monét in support of the Black Lives Matter movement.

She organized the One Love Manchester concert and released a live album of the concert to aid the victims of the 2017 Manchester Arena bombing. (The total amount raised was $23 million, reportedly.)

Furthermore, Grande also performed at A Concert for Charlottesville to benefit the victims of the August 2017 white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia; participated in March for Our Lives to support gun control legislation in 2018; and donated the proceeds from the first show on her Sweetener World Tour to Planned Parenthood.

Real Estate

In a single month in the middle of 2020 alone, Ariana spent $20 million on several real estate purchases.

Ariana Grande's primary residence for many years was a 6,000-square-foot Beverly Hills home. The gated property boasts expansive views of the Hollywood Hills and has an impressive outdoor seating area, including a pool and hot tub. She actually does not own this house and has instead been renting it for an undisclosed price for several years.

In June 2020, Ariana paid $13.7 million for a home in the Hollywood Hills. She sold this home in October 2021 for $14 million. Here's a video tour of that home:

Also, in June 2020, Ariana bought a home in Montecito, California, from Ellen DeGeneres for $6.75 million. Ariana sold this home in September 2022 for $9.1 million.

While on the East Coast, Grande spends time in a 4,000-square-foot apartment that is located within the Zaha Hadid Building and is reportedly worth $16 million. According to sources, it's unclear if she rents or owns the sprawling four-bedroom Manhattan residence, which was initially intended for her to share with former fiancé Pete Davidson.

In March 2021, Ariana paid just under $9 million for another home in Los Angeles. Ariana sold this home to fellow musician Bad Bunny in January 2024 for $8.9 million.
