What is Ariana Grande’s Actual Height and weight?
When Ariana Grande was portraying the dim-witted but sweet Catherine on the Nickelodeon show, Victorious, only a few could have predicted that she would go on to transition from an ingénue to adult star. Even fewer would have foreseen that she would go on to become one of the biggest artists to ever walk the face of the earth but that is exactly what she has gone on to do.
In a brilliant career spanning the 2010s decade, Grande has dropped several monster hit singles and chart-topping albums. She has also scooped up several awards and now reigns supreme as one of the most influential and highest-paid musicians in the world. The superstar singer is set to do even greater things in the 2020s decade and as we wait to see what she has in store for us, Here, we bring you some exciting facts about her.
1. Ariana Grande is 5 feet 2 inches tall
Ariana Grande is certainly a giant in terms of what she has achieved but when it comes to her physical height, she is noticeably miniature.

To make herself look taller, Grande often resorts to high-heeled shoes even while dancing and performing on stage. She has been known to stumble on occasion but always sees the funny side of it.
2. Her Weight is listed at 49 kg or 108 lbs
Meshing perfectly with Ariana Grande’s 5 feet 2 inches stature is a slight frame that weighs 49kg. The singer owes her figure to a vegan diet which she adopted in 2013.
