AceShowbiz - Ariana Grande has pleaded with fans to "gimme a break" after coming under fire for always wearing "the same two outfits" in paparazzi photos.
The "7 Rings" hitmaker has become well recognised for her preference for baggy, oversized shirts and thigh-high boots, leading fans on social media to point out the 26-year-old has "been wearing the same boots/ long shirt Combo for years."
After picking up on the scrutiny, Ariana took to her Twitter page to shut down the discussion, writing, "Thank god I'm a singer then..."
"Gimmeee a break. i don't like having my photo taken, i escape the paparazzi almost every time," she continued. "i never post photos that aren't on stage but s**t i promise i have cute a*s clothes."
Ariana went on to insist that, while she knows her fans just want "the best" for her, she's doing her best to avoid scrutiny in her day-to-day life.
"I'm never even seen like ever i promise i look cute over here in my own world i haven't even been able to put on a pair of f**kin boots lately because of the traumatic image i have in my head of these uh .... tik tok 'performers.' "
Despite the "Sweetener" star's penchant for more relaxed looks, she previously told U.S. Vogue magazine she uses her stage costumes and trademark high ponytail to convey an "exaggerated version" of herself.
