After she stepped out in London earlier this week and looked “worryingly thin,” Ariana Grande, 29, publicly urged the public to be “gentler and less comfortable commenting on people’s bodies.” The “Wicked” actress claimed in her in-depth TikTok about the incident that she felt compelled to address fans’ “concerns” about her weight.
“The version of my body that you’ve been contrasting with my present one was the unhealthiest. I was taking a lot of antidepressants, and I was drinking and not eating well,” she said. “When I looked the way you consider my health, but that in fact wasn’t my healthy, [I was] at the lowest point of my life.”
The “Victorious” star was careful to add, “You never know what someone is going through, so even if you are coming from a loving place and a caring place, that person probably is working on it or has a support system that they are working on it with.”
