In 2008, Ariana Grande made her debut in the Broadway show “13,” playing a cheerleader named Charlotte. Buoyed by her success — she won a National Youth Theater Association Award — she starred on TV and eventually began working on her own music (featuring artists like Mac Miller). In 2013, she released her first album, “Yours Truly,” which hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200. According to Celebrity Net Worth, that album sold between 100,000 and 120,000 copies in the first week of its release.

Endorsements

Grande has not just earned money from singing, but from endorsements with some big brand names. She put out her own limited edition handbag with Coach in 2016; introduced lip shades for MAC Cosmetics (and donated all proceeds to the MAC AIDS Fund); debuted her own fashion line with Lipsy London; and worked with Brookstone and artist Wenqing Yan to create cat ear headphones.

She has also worked for companies including Reebok, Starbucks, Givenchy, Macy’s, T-Mobile and Apple. Banking on her image of “sweetness,” she has put out seven fragrances with Luxe Brands, which have earned more than $150 million since 2015.

She has also engaged in a variety of philanthropic efforts to raise money for causes she believes in, not the least of which was the One Love Manchester concert, an event that raised funds to aid the victims of the Manchester Arena bombing of 2017, when 22 people were killed at one of her concerts in the U.K.

Real Estate

Grande has been able to pay for luxurious living spaces with her immense earnings. She currently rents in a 6,000-square-foot home in Beverly Hills, California, with a view of the Hollywood Hills and a pool and hot tub. However, in the past, she has purchased a $13.7 million home in the Hollywood Hills, a $6.75 million home in Montecito, California (formerly Ellen DeGeneres’ home), and a $9 million Los Angeles home.
