Ariana Grande's weight loss discussions have gotten too intense and invasive on Reddit since the start of 2023 that the pop star herself felt the need to come forward and address all the weight concerns and health speculations about her. Fans were obsessing too much over her latest photos and current body and unnecessarily and insensitively commenting about how she looked so thin and sickly and frail. Ariana Grande, addressing 2023 weight loss speculations about her on Reddit in a TikTok video, said that people should feel less comfortable commenting on other people's bodies and revealed that the body her current body was being compared to was the unhealthiest version of her as she was on a lot of antidepressants then.
Ariana Grande has taken a step back from the spotlight since she released Positions and has pretty much disappeared from the public eye. She's now busy shooting for her musical film Wicked. So, it's been a long time since we have seen her in public. She hasn't been avoiding social media, however, and some of her recent photos on Instagram and TikTok just showed how different she looked compared to before.
The pop star looks very skinny and thin in her latest photos, which has concerned her fans. Every time she posts a picture, people comment on her current body and how she looks very frail and sickly. This has led to intense weight loss discussions about her on various gossip sites on social media, especially on Reddit. Ever since the start of 2023, Reddit and Twitter have a new thread about Ariana Grande's weight loss and body change!
Ariana Grande's Weight Loss Reddit 2023: Fans Have Weight Concerns About Her Body Change and Her Looking Thin!
Ariana Grande (@arianagrande) has sparked weight concerns among her fans with her current body and the discourse about her looking too thin and her body change has gotten too big and mainstream to a point that you can't get on Reddit or Twitter without seeing threads and posts about her weight loss. It's been like that since 2023 began.

Ariana Grande is taking an unofficial break from music as she is currently working on her upcoming musical film Wicked, in which she plays the role of Glinda. So, with no albums to release and no music to promote, busy with her film, she is staying lowkey and has noticeably withdrawn from the public. She is, however, active on social media and occasionally shares some snaps of herself on Instagram, which are what prompted the intense weight loss discussions on Reddit since the start of 2023 in the first place.
Fans and random spectators are commenting on Grande's current body and how she has changed so much and not in a good way. They are expressing their concern over her dangerously skinny body and how she looks so sick with that body. There want to know what's wrong with her. To summarize it all, commentaries on Ariana Grande's weight loss have been getting intense and increasingly nastier, and more invasive on Reddit.
To give you an example of how bad it is getting, there was one particular thread on Reddit with a photo of the pop star with her Wicked co-star Cynthia Erivo which had to be removed by the site's monitors for 'overly invasive health discussion.' There was another image of Ariana Grande posted in the subreddit r/VindicaRateCelebs which prompted a number of reactions from users expressing concern about her worrying weight loss. 2023 so far has been like that.

It has been going on for quite a while but not too intense as it has gotten since the beginning of 2023. It's as if people's resolution this year is to scrutinize every little change in Grande and then express concerns about her thinness by commenting on her current body on social media. I mean, we have seen a lot of posts on Twitter and threads on Reddit that just goes 'What's wrong with Ariana Grande? Why does she look so thin in her recent photos? Is she sick or something?'
And Lipstick Alley is not behind either. A picture Grande posted on Instagram in January 2023 elicited some extreme and invasive responses on the gossip site about her weight loss and eating disorder and anorexia. Even though the users might have meant that without malicious intents about it, the truth is that scrutiny and discussions about anyone's body at that level can be overwhelming. Ariana Grande felt that too. Reddit has been exhausting lately.
Even though the comments on Reddit were mostly expressing weight concerns about her like 'she's lost so much weight lately she needs help before something happens,' and 'she has always been thin but this is really worrisome,' those just bothered Ariana Grande. 2023 has not been very kind to her if you think in terms of what's going on in social media about her weight loss.
If you scroll through the comment section on Ariana Grande's pictures on her Instagram page, you will see for yourself that there are lots of remarks about how she's been looking unwell and frail and different for some time. She definitely has changed and does not look the same as she did before but writing that it's so scary to think that she has lost even more weight since then might be a tad out of place.

It got so out of hand that Ariana Grande herself addressed those speculations about her health and weight concerns in a TikTok video. All the scrutiny of her latest photos of 2023 and discourse (that got mainstream on Reddit and Twitter) about her body change and weight loss must have troubled her too deeply that she felt the need to speak about it because she has never done this before. In a rare message to her fans, she opened up about current comments about her body change and past health struggles.
In response to all the comments on Reddit expressing weight concerns about her body changes and all the mocking remarks made on Twitter, Ariana Grande made a video to talk about her weight loss, probably in the hopes that it would be the last she ever talked of it and the entire social media as well. She said that she wanted to address people's concerns about her body and talk a little bit about what it meant to a person who is paid this close attention to.

Ariana Grande made it clear that she didn't appreciate comments speculating about her weight loss and whether she had health problems and said that "we should be gentler and less comfortable commenting on people's bodies, no matter what." She doesn't just mean the negative comments, she means the complimentary ones too because even though the comment might have been well-intentioned, it could be triggering.
"There are ways to compliment someone or to ignore something that you see that you don’t like that I think we should help each other work towards," Ariana Grande recommended. Anyway, about her 2023 weight loss, there's nothing wrong with her as people think there is. Plus, when fans commented on Reddit and Instagram, and Twitter that she looks so skinny and unhealthier compared to before, they were wrong about it as "the body that you’ve been comparing my current body to was the unhealthiest version of my body."
Ariana Grande said that she was on antidepressants and was unhealthy before she had recent weight loss.

Ariana Grande opened up about how she was unhealthy as she "was on a lot of antidepressants and drinking on them and eating poorly and at the lowest point of her life when she looked the way you consider her healthy." So, by implying that she looked healthier back then compared to now and commenting that her weight loss made her look sickly, people could have been unintentionally triggering her to look the way she did before when she was unhealthy. This realization is scarier than anything.
So, no more weight concerns even if they are well-intentioned because as Ariana Grande said, you never know what the person is going through. Plus, there is no ideal image of the body and health. And besides,
So even if you are coming from a loving place or a caring place, that person probably is working on it or has a support system that they are working on it with. You never know. So be gentle with each other and with yourselves. I think you’re beautiful no matter what you’re going through, no matter what weight, no matter how you like to do your makeup these days, no matter what cosmetic procedures you’ve had or not.
