Ariana Grande Has ‘No Choice’ but to Wear Heels Because of Her Height - How Tall Is She?
Florida native Ariana Grande is a critically acclaimed and world-renowned artist who continues to grace big screens as she showcases her many talents. Grande may be lauded for her artistic prowess, but her talents aren't the only things for which she's googled.
Ariana Grande's career in the arts began in 2004 when she voiced the "Winx Club" character Diaspro. She gradually rose to fame for the memorable characters she played in Nickelodeon shows such as "Sam and Cat" and "Victorious."
Although Grande now holds the titles of an actress, a singer with impeccable vocal range, and a voice coach, her height has been a curious subject among her supporters. Considering the singer's small petite build, her supporters have also noted that she usually dons tall platform heels during her performances.

Ariana Grande's Height Is a Subject for Jokes
Ariana Grande is one of the most influential artists of her time, yet, her height is often the subject of ridicule. In 2020, Twitter user Nurain shared their thoughts about Grande's height, where they assumed the "Problem" hitmaker's height was "150cm and below" based on how "small" the actress seemed.
In 2021, another user touched on the subject of Grande's height and made a joke with a clever reference to her Italian last name. Instead of calling the singer Ariana Grande, Silver Soul God changed her last name to "Ariana Pequeña," a Spanish adjective for "tiny" or "slim."
That same year, Sherine humorously tweeted a graph presentation of Ariana Grande's features, including her talent, beauty, voice, and height, ranking the lowest out of all. Keke retweeted "100% legit," concurring with Sherine's demonstration.
Grande's stature was also the butt of a joke on a promotion clip for SNL in March 2016, where the singer marveled over how tiny people looked from her top floor view. Her co-host joked that although the people at the bottom looked tiny, she looked tiny no matter how close or far she seemed.
