Vogue released Ariana Grande’s stunning new beach photoshoot, but fans are claiming the superstar looks completely unrecognizable.

What’s up guys, it’s Emile Ennis Jr. back here on Clevver News, and remember the simpler times just yesterday when Ariana Grande’s adorbz dog Toulouse was trending on Twitter for being front and center in her new Vogue cover spread? It only took a few hours for Ariana to become the center of attention, and not at all for the same reason as her furry friend.

Fans have voiced their opinion and deep concern over the fact that Ariana, lest we not forget, a Boca Raton, Florida native, who has Sicilian and Abruzzese roots, looks unrecognizable on her cover due to her skin color. Many comments came flooding in with users writing responses like, “is she black now?” and “Ariana does not look like this at all.”

Hmmmm… although Ari appears to rock a more natural, and still STUNNING, look on this cover, fans are rattling out all sorts of claims from a horrible spray tan to bad photoshop to plastic surgery.

I meann… it is summer… people tan in the summer… she’s Italian… truthfully, I don’t see it, nor do many other Arianators who have come to the singer’s defense.

One user wrote, “y’all are freaking out over the fact that u think she’s black in this when she’s nowhere near that. She’s just tan in this. Chill the hell out.”

Another fan said, “She’s Sicilian. A lot of south Italians have tanned skin. Sure she uses fake tan as well, but even some people of colour use fake tan. I have olive skin and I still put the bronzer on. I like the glow it gives

At this point, I think it’s also safe to say that Ariana’s intentions are as pure as ever, especially after all she’s been through over the past years, so really, can we just give the girl a break? I’ve also gotta add that her Vogue interview was open and honest and vulnerable as she opened up about her previous relationships, fully admitting that she’s not all there when it comes to the ‘life stuff.’

She said QUOTE, “I'm like an infant when it comes to real life and this old soul, been-around-the-block-a-million-times artist. I still don't trust myself with the life stuff.”

PREACH, GIRL. So right now, let’s all take one large deep breath, chill out a little, and comment all the nice things about Ari down here in the comments because it’s already Wednesday and I’ve got very little patience for negativity, ya feel?
