Ariana Grande poses in nothing but body paint to promote new single

Yahoo Lifestyle

Ariana Grande‘s latest single has only been out for a few hours, but it’s already creating quite the fuss.The pop star dropped her latest single, “God Is a Woman,” late Thursday night, and the song has quickly riled up some Christians who find the title’s gender implication to be offensive. Others, however, haven’t been bothered by that — they’re too fixated on Grande’s racy makeover for the single’s cover art.

The newly engaged singer appears nude and covered only in purple, blue, and pale yellow body paint in the promotional materials for “God Is a Woman,” whose video is expected to be released later on Friday.

Fiancé Pete Davidson was among the first to rave about the former Nickelodeon star’s provocative look, gushing “YUM YUM YUM” on her Instagram.

Queer Eye co-host Tan France dubbed the image “stunning,” while fashion designer Jeremy Scott called her “GOOOORRRRGEEOUUSSSS.” Others were eager to copy the look.



But not everyone was feeling the body paint.

One fan’s message that Grande looked “like a god” was slammed by commenters upset by the song’s religious metaphor, while a body-shaming troll mocked her “flat” chest. Another fan tweeted that posing without clothes and wearing body paint was “below” the singer’s talents.


But it doesn’t sound like Grande has any regrets, according to this response to a fan. Nothing a long shower can’t handle!
