Ariana Grande has no more tears to cry over the criticism of her voice.

In fact, the Grammy winner doesn’t mind being able to switch between two different accents. Watching a viral video of her changing vocal modulations with a “yeah, and?” attitude, Grande noted that the switch is “a normal thing that people do, especially when you have a wide vocal range.”

“I just spent a lot of time playing a character every day,” Grande said on the July 9 episode of the Shut Up Evan podcast, referring to her role as Glinda in the upcoming movie musical “Wicked.” “Muscle memory is a real thing.”

The 31-year-old also pointed out that there appears to be a double standard when male actors unintentionally remain in their roles after filming.

Ariana Grande responds for the first time to the sensational allegations of abuse and a toxic climate at Nickelodeon following the explosive documentary “Quiet On Set.”

“Sure, people make jokes here and there, but afterward, you always think, ‘Oh wow, how dedicated he is to his craft! What an incredible transformation! He’s a brilliant artist!'” she continued. “But then, God forbid, I sneeze like Glinda.”

This isn’t the first time Grande has defended her ever-changing voice. When a critic slammed the “Dangerous Woman” singer last month, she fired back, saying the varying intonations were for her “vocal health.”

“I intentionally change my vocal pitch (high/low) a lot depending on how much I’m singing,” she wrote in the comments section of a TikTok video about her speaking patterns. “I’ve always done it this way, BYE.”

And Grande is now ready to say “Thank u, next” to all the excitement surrounding the viral moment. After all, she told Evan Ross Katz on his podcast that she resisted the urge to publicly comment on the internet chatter.

“I’ve sent you so many drafts of things where I thought, ‘I really want to say this,'” she told the host. “And I keep coming back to the conclusion that I should not take the bait and be protective.”

Grande continued, “Protecting that peace and privacy is actually much more important than understanding and consenting to let people in like that.”
