Ariana Grande Responds to Photo Leak: My Ass is Cuter Than That

Not content to let the issue die with her representative’s official denial, Ariana Grande personally addressed the emergence of nude photos that rocked the entertainment world over Labor Day Weekend.

“To every1 going on about my “nudes” & my “m&g prices” [meet and greet prices] neither are real,” Tweeted Grande. “My lil ass is a lot cuter than that lmao & tour details r comin soon.”

Further mocking the notion that she was actually the woman featured in the nude shots, Grande cracked, “but forreal tho whoever thought those were actually me…… love u but I’m praying for u.”

Earlier Monday, Grande’s publicist told BuzzFeed, “The photos are completely fake.”

Over the past day, a hacker has been leaking graphic photos that allegedly feature some of the entertainment world’s most notable females.

Names like Grande, Jennifer Lawrence, Lea Michele, Victoria Justice, Kate Upton, Becca Tobin, Melissa Benoist, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, McKayla Maroney and Yvonne Strahovski are allegedly featured.

While some–including Tobin, Upton, Lawrence and Winstead–have either directly or indirectly confirmed the legitimacy of the photos, others maintain that they are fake.

Grande fits into the latter camp.
