Ariana Grande claps back at criticism of her off-duty outfits

Ariana Grande has pleaded with fans to give her a break after receiving criticism for always wearing "the same two outfits" in paparazzi photos.

In recent years, the 7 Rings hitmaker has become known for sporting ensembles comprised of baggy, oversized shirts and thigh-high boots when photographed out and about, with fans on social media recently claiming Ariana has "been wearing the same boots/ long shirt Combo for years".

After picking up on the scrutiny, she took to her Twitter page to shut down the discussion, writing: "thank god i'm a singer then..."

"gimmeee a break (sic). i don't like having my photo taken, i escape the paparazzi almost every time," the 26-year-old 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 all she can 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' (sic)," she added, referring to the short-form social media video platform.

Despite the 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.
