Beverly Hills, CA—

After seeing the recent picture of Adele after losing weight, Ariana Grande decided it was time for her to shed a few pounds. “I saw her picture and thought that it would be a good idea to also drop some weight,” the singer said. “I always wanted to be skinny so I am very happy about doing this.” She says that she is very happy with her looks now, but would like to lose about 20 more to reach her goal of weighing 5 pounds by summer.
