What's Her Real Height?

After investigating Ariana Grande's height, I believe she wakes up in the morning standing 5'0.75" (154.3 cm) tall, then dips down to around 5'0.5" (153.67cm) tall throughout the majority of the day, and by bedtime, her height is closer to 5'0.25" (153.4 cm). 


Height Claims

Ariana has claimed varying heights over the years. ranging from 5 feet, five-three, and five-five (jokingly) tall.

Twitter Claims 

Ariana has made 3 height claims from her now-deleted Twitter account (1)

  1. When she was 15/16 years old she said on Twitter, that she is "5'' 3'!!! I grew! Yay! :]" Regarding this statement, Ariana was 19 years old here, and it is highly unlikely she grew. 
  2. Again, aged 17 on Twitter and in two responses to asking her height, Ariana said: "i'm 5 feet tall. :]" In another instance, she said: "5 feet or a little more, i'm miniature". 

Zach Sang Show

  1. In 2019 she appeared on the Zach Sang Show, and while discussing high-heels, Zach says: The heels you rehearse in are the biggest possible heels a woman could buy" and Ariana's response is "well yeah, I don't have a choice, I'm like five (long pause) five. I'm just five. No I'm five-two" (wink). 

Regarding this statement, It's true that Ariana likes to wear high heels. She has also had some slips and stumbles while performing in them!

She once mentioned that she practices dance while wearing them, saying: "My feet hurt really badly at the end of the shows, but it's fun. While it's happening it's fun. I feel tall." 

What Others Say

Wendy Williams 5'9.5" (176.5 cm)

In 2015, as Shortchanged mentions (2), on her show in 2015, Williams commented on Ariana's height, saying:

"You know, it's nice to look younger than you are, but when you look too young, and then you're short - she's only like 4'11"."

Regarding this statement, it might make people question if Ariana Grande is even 5ft tall? Well, the answer is yes, Ariana stands comfortably over 5 feet tall, never dipping under it during the waking day. 

Compared to Other Celebs

Let's compare Ariana's height to some other celebs to gain a better understanding of how tall she really is.

Mac Miller  5'6.25" (168.3 cm)

During the period Mac Miller and Ariana Grande were dating there are many pics of them together for height comparison. For instance, in Sep 2016 on a date night in LA they were both wearing sliders and there appears to be a 5.5 inch height difference between them.

Another example includes when they performed the song 'The Way' at One Love Manchester in 2016. During the performance, Mac was wearing flat-style sneakers giving him around 0.75 inches of height, and Ariana is wearing 6 inch platform heels and Mac is around 0.5 inches taller.

So, compared to Mac Miller Ariana looks to be 5'0.5"-5'5.75" tall. 

Troye Sivan 5'8" (172.8 cm)

In the video for their "Dance To This", taking into consideration Troy's thicker footwear, he appears to be around 7.5-8 inches taller than Ariana. 

During another instance of them together at Met Gala 2018, Ariana is wearing huge platform heels giving her a comfortable 5 inch height advantage over Troy, and she manages to look 4 inches shorter, putting her height at a little over 5 feet tall. 

Therefore compared to Troy, Ariana looks to be 5'0"-5'0.5" tall. 

Nicki Minaj 5'2" (157.5 cm)

Due to footwear differences the two singers sometimes appear close in height, but on closer inspection, it becomes obvious that Nicki is taller.

For instance, when they performed the song "Bang Bang" live at the iHeartRadio Festival, 2014, performing the song "Side To Side" at the MTV VMAs 2016, and at Coachella 2019, in all these instances they look identical in height, yet Ariana is wearing footwear that gives comfortably over an 1 inch height advantage over Nicki. 

Therefore when compared to Nicki Minaj, Ariana Grande appears to be somewhere between 5'0.5"-75" tall. 

The Results - Compared to other celebs, Ariana appears between 5'0" and 5'0.75" tall.
