Ariana Grande's Net Worth Is Way Higher Than You Think

In her hit song "7 Rings," Ariana Grande penned memorable lyrics about her own significant worth. When she sang, "Buy myself all of my favorite things," she meant it. According to Celebrity Net Worth, Grande, 27, doesn't just have millions, she has many millions — $150 million to be exact. Though this may be on the high side, as estimates elsewhere indicate a $50 to $80 million net worth for Grande (via The Street). 

Grande's career started when she was cast in the Broadway musical 13 in 2008. She quickly parlayed her Broadway success to a TV career when she was cast on the Nickelodeon show Victorious as Cat Valentine. Grande reprised the role for the spin-off series, Sam & Cat. However, Grande didn't make a fortune on Nickelodeon; TMZ uncovered that she only made $9,000 per episode. 

Regardless, her Victorious fame launched both her celebrity status and her music career. Grande was able to channel her public profile into lucrative endorsement deals, from collaborating with Coach on limited edition handbags in 2016 to acting as the face of Givenchy's Fall-Winter campaign in 2019, per The Street.

Ariana Grande earns a lot, but gives back

Grande's fortune really began to grow as she expanded her music career. Her first album, Yours Truly, his No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 200. Her subsequent albums only strengthened her sales. Touring was also a giant revenue stream; she reportedly earned $1 million for every stop on her Sweetener tour. In 2018, Forbes revealed she was the 62nd highest earning celebrity, thanks to a combination of album sales and tours. 

While Grande earns plenty of money, she also makes sure to give back. According to People, in 2019, she donated the profits from a stop on her Sweetener tour to Planned Parenthood. As the COVID-19 pandemic swept the United States, she revealed a list of charities to which she was giving donations, including Feeding America and the WHO's COVID-19 solidarity response fund. She has also used her performances as a chance to raise money for worthy causes, including the One Love Manchester concert, which she organized to help victims after a terrorist bombing at one of her concerts in the British city in 2017 (via NPR).
