Ariana Grande is showing off her midriff in light of her first ever fragrance campaign. The 22-year-old pint-sized diva recently made a powerful statement in a new feminist-centered photo shoot.
Ariana Grande has been outspoken about her thoughts on feminism and female empowerment. So, it came to no surprise to Grande’s fans when she was featured in a new and powerful photo shoot. The “One Last Time” singer put her midriff display as she posed for a feminist-themed photo shoot on Friday, Aug. 7.
Ariana showed off her toned arms and taut tummy as she wore a gray crop top with the words “Never underestimate the power of a woman.”

The diva also emulated Rosie the Riveter’s iconic pose, raising her arm to show off her own strength. Grande also gave the camera her own signature wink and pucker. The pop star completed her flirty look with black cat ears and a black-and-white plaid mini-skirt. Ariana showed off her petite frame in another photo, which showed her with her hands on her hips, as she tilted her head back and stuck her tongue at the camera.
Back in June, Grande took to Twitter to write a powerful essay on how she doesn’t want to be known as Big Sean’s ex-girlfriend.
“What I meant when I said what I said about being Sean’s ex is that I am tired of living in a world where women are mostly referred to as a man’s past, present or future PROPERTY/POSSESSION.”
“…I’m saying this after literally 8 years of feeling like I constantly had to have a boy by my side. After being on my own now for a few months I am realizing that that’s just not the case…”
As Ariana takes a break from music, she is set to release her first ever fragrance titled Ari. The powerhouse singer teased her fans on Instagram with a photo of the ad. The photo shows Ariana wearing a white crop and matching leggings, along with her signature ponytail and pout. The pop star is also seen holding onto three adorable Dalmatian puppies on leashes.

Grande teased another clip on Instagram that also showed off her signature, which she often signs on fan photos. She captioned the photo, “almost here #ari #beyou www.arianagrandefragrances.com.”
It’s been previously reported that Grande’s fragrance would have a blend of florals, fruits, and musk along with an “addictive hint of marshmallow,” which will sound delightful to some of her young fans. The bottle is just as captivating with its pink, fluffy pom-pom.
Ariana Grande is expected to release her new album, Moonlight, sometime in the near future. During the iHeart Media Music Summit, Ariana’s label revealed that her new single, “Focus On Me,” hasn’t revealed a release date. However, some media outlets reported that it will come out soon, while others say it won’t be released until spring 2016. If that’s the case, then it sounds like Ariana will have another summer hit on her hands.
Fans can listen to a snippet of the song in the video below.
