Anyone who knows Ariana Grande knows that she's Italian-American. Do we need to remind you of her nonna?!
However, some fans have started a debate online about her true ethnicity. Because she's tan, they assume she's black.
These same people also believe that Ariana bleached her skin to be lighter after seeing her new TIME cover.
Some even went as far as photoshopping her as a black woman.
Obivously, the entire thing is a joke. Right? Surely people don't actually think because she is tan, can sing and is friends with Nicki Minaj she's all of a sudden not Italian......
Help us out.
