AceShowbiz - Ariana Grande went naked in the name of art. The former Nickelodeon star stripped down to her birthday suit in a new Instagram picture that showed her body covered in nothing but light-colored paint.
The 25-year-old singer/actress put her hands in the air with the colorful paint smeared all over her chest, arms, cheek and lips. Her long hair was styled in a low braid, which was also covered in paint. "@alexameadeart#giaw #behindthescenes#ivepostedthisanddeleteditbefore #iknow#itsokay," she captioned in the sexy snap.
The photo was taken from behind the scenes of the filming of her "God Is a Woman" music video, in which she is seen sporting the same body paint. Installation artist Alexa Meade, whom Ariana tagged in the Instagram photo, was the one behind the artwork.
Ariana has been laying low since the death of her ex-boyfriend Mac Miller on September 7. She, however, has chosen her first gig since the tragic passing of the rapper, being set to perform at a charity fundraiser on Saturday, October 13.
She will join singer/actress Kristin Chenoweth and comedienne Jeff Garlin at the inaugural Barbara Berlanti Heroes Gala which is going to take place in Los Angeles. The event will benefit the F**k Cancer organization, which aims to raise awareness about the disease and educate people about the importance of early cancer detection.
Ariana previously was booked as a musical performer for the season 44 premiere of "Saturday Night Live" on September 29, but she pulled out citing "emotional reasons." She was eventually replaced by Kanye West in the episode hosted by "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" star Adam Driver.
The "Dangerous Woman" songstress recently took to Instagram to support her fiance Pete Davidson while taking a playful dig at Kanye West. Sharing a video of the comedian appearing on the opening credits of "SNL" October 6 episode, she wrote on the clip, "I love you like Kanye loves Kanye, referring to a line of his "The Life of Pablo" track "I Love Kanye".
