How Ariana Grande Achieved a Net Worth of $45 Million

There seems to always be a great deal of interest in the net worth of celebrities. I guess the vicarious nature through which people tend to live through others creates this obsession. I have always wondered what knowing someone else network did for me directly, but being a behavioral specialist, I understand it. After her split with Mac Miller, it was revealed that Ariana Grande’s net worth is estimated to be $45 million. While her net worth isn’t close to the likes of Buffett and Gates, $45 million is nothing to laugh at.

What a lot of people are interested in know is how Ariana was able to amass such a substantial amount of wealth.

Before we get into how Ariana earned her stacks, let’s take a look at who she really is. She was born in 1993 in Boca Raton, FL to reasonably successful parents. Her father is a highly successful graphic designer, and her mother is the CEO of a communications company that manufactures equipment for the U.S. Navy called Hose-McCann Communications.

Ariana’s interest in music was demonstrated at an early age. She performed on cruise ships, with the Ft. Lauderdale Music theater and she even sang the Star Spangled Banner at a Carolina Panthers game.

Now, let’s look at some of the ways that Ariana has amassed her wealth. It begins with Ariana acting career which actually took off before her singing career. She landed a spot on Victorious in 2009, which one of Nickelodeon’s hottest shows ever. In fact, the show premiered with an audience of 5.7 million viewers, which is the second largest audience in the history of the network. The second season of the show hit an even higher mark of 6.2 viewers.

While it was obvious that Ariana had what it took to be a good actress, she was not satisfied. She wanted to pursue her first love — music. She began doing covers of British recording star Adele on YouTube, and she was able to build a huge following. Her success on YouTube led to her landing a recording contract with Republic Records.

Her debut album was hot, heading all the way to the top of the Billboard 200. She also found success in foreign countries such as the UK, Australia, and Ireland, where she achieved Top 10 status.

The star has an ability to draw enormously large crowds, which is another area in which she has generated a great deal of revenue on an annual basis. Most artists in the music industry earn far more touring than they do from their royalties, but Ariana had it coming in from both directions. So far, we know that she has revenue earned from acting and music.

Now while her acting and singing account for a substantial amount of Ariana’s wealth, she does have other business interests outside of those areas. She has a line of perfumes that grossed $150 million for 2017. It appears that 2017 was a good year for Ariana, as she also became the global ambassador for Reebok.

To have a net worth of $45 million at the ripe old age of 24 is no small task. What you have to understand is the fact that she has been in the entertainment business for a decade already. She is a veteran, and she has sweat equity in the game. Earlier I mentioned the potency of touring to generate revenue. Ariana raked in a cool $71 million in ticket sales for her Dangerous Woman tour in 2016. “Dangerous Woman” was her third album. She is currently gearing up for the release of album number four on July 20, 2018.

When you add in the advertising revenue and the appearance fees that she earns just for showing up to events, you will gain a little insight into how Ariana has built a very efficient revenue generating machine.

Finally, in addition to the acting that Ariana did for television, she has also made her presence felt on the Broadway stage, and that definitely did not hurt her net worth. Basically, Ariana is a money-making machine, and if things continue to go the way they have gone over the last five years, we can expect her to easily amass a net worth in the nine-figure range.
