Weigh In: Ariana Grande Releases ‘Yours Truly’ Album Cover

Published: Wednesday 31st Jul 2013 by David

Oh no.

As supporters of 2013’s brightest star Ariana Grande, we eagerly anticipate the release of her debut album ‘Yours Truly’ on September 3rd.

With this in mind, try your best to imagine our horror upon laying eyes on its recently released cover art, bland and disturbing…all at the same time.

Lacking the personality that draws so many to her music, but too ‘Lolita-esque’ to look at without playing re-runs of ‘To Catch A Predator’ in one’s mind, the cover is-rather unfortunately- all shades of off putting.

Here’s hoping the response it will no doubt garner encourages Camp Grande to change it in time for release, baring her young audience- and the mothers they’ll pester to pick up the album for them, in mind.

Your thoughts?

      Rihanna is s*** and she’s giving full on ADULT s***. This one is trying to bridge the gap between innocent and s*** and it’s f****** nasty because we know who else tries to bridge that gap too. I was really planning to buy my sister her album but I don’t want this filth in my house.

  14. Beyawnce July 31, 2013

    Looks like she used Pic Art to make this cover

  15. FentySoSnatched July 31, 2013

    The feds better check the internet history of whoever told her to pose like that.

  16. Suicide Blonde July 31, 2013

    Looks like a Manga comic p***.

    • stephy the lambily July 31, 2013

      You need to put Madonna as your avi.

      • Suicide Blonde July 31, 2013

        Why i would do that?

      • stephy the lambily July 31, 2013

        Because you need to call me. *ROLLS EYES*

      • Suicide Blonde July 31, 2013

        Well, put a smile on mines. 847-4505….

  17. Beyawnce July 31, 2013

    The cover is terrible , She looks like a child s** s**** .

    • stephy the lambily July 31, 2013

      LOL I cant

  18. Teflon Boy July 31, 2013

    Lol this is actually pretty interesting as I have thought in recent weeks that there was something very doe-eyed, Lolita-esque and calculating about AG’s current campaign. I say this because, as someone with a little sister who watches Nickelodian’s ‘Victorious’ I was aware of AG before The Way and on that show she came across as 17+ and pretty s***, ditzy but s***. If they were going with ‘teen-like but chaste’ I’d understand but they’re actually going for child-like and ‘virginal’ all while dressed in pop-socks and a suggestive baby-doll nightie, hands pressed together with a face that says ‘Holy Communion’ lol which is actually really creepy and disgustingly gross.

  19. Molly July 31, 2013

    Why is the 10 year old wearing that

  20. Rosie July 31, 2013

    A Windows Paint mess. Looks like a Brazzers teen p*** cover.
    Now I like Ariana and I want her to end Mariah’s career but if she keeps doing this 9 year old b*******, I will be done with her.

    • Suicide Blonde July 31, 2013


    • stephy the lambily July 31, 2013

      Oh Rose stop it.

    • Teflon Boy July 31, 2013

      Mariah is eternally 12…, maybe Ariana is eternally 9?:/

    • POP ROYALTY (F*** Yeah Rihanna) July 31, 2013

      End What ? 🙄

      Every Dog has It’s day, Rosie!

      Legends Live Forever, No Matter how many times they are going to flop While competing with the Young Acts.

  21. Yours Truly July 31, 2013

    I fail to see what’s wrong with it. She’s 20 years old. My only complaint is the lettering. But to be honest, the only thing that matters is the music.

    • stephy the lambily July 31, 2013

      True but it is kinda creepy. She looks 7 years old wearing a see threw stockings, on her knees looking at the camera like “Save me cause im about to suck some d***” I cant with this IT LOOKS LIKE KIDDIE P***

      • Yours Truly July 31, 2013

        She’s a grown woman though. Youn, but legally an adult. Britney and Christina did worse at a younger age. Miley showed more skin on her Can’t Be Tamed cover and she was younger. I think people are overreacting. Like I said, visuals shouldn’t matter, the music should.

  22. Rihanna July 31, 2013

    This is disgusting. I am so tired of her label promoting her like a 12 year old girl. This is gross. Almost like she’s catered to p*********. Grow up little girl.

    • Yours Truly July 31, 2013

      She still plays a high school kid on Nickelodeon, what do you expect her do?

  23. eric July 31, 2013

    Very sad. A pin-up p*** star is the image she chooses to encompass the album’s music. She has no idea where she’s going or who she wants to be. One day it’s Mariah, the next it’s Adele. She’s lost.

    • Yours Truly July 31, 2013

      Adele? Like really? Her music and voice sounds nothing like Adele

      • eric July 31, 2013

        I’m talking about her youtube covers of mariah and adele songs.

      • Yours Truly July 31, 2013

        Just because you cover a song doesn’t mean you want to be like them. That’s the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard

  24. POP ROYALTY (F*** Yeah Rihanna) July 31, 2013

    Actually I think It is Very-Smart if we are thinking Marketing-Wise, her fanbase Consist Majorly of Pre-teens,Teens, Kids, early 20 something People, This Cover will Attract this Group of People, She’s catering to them, She’s So Smart for that, While it is basic, But still will “Do The Job”.
    But Also her Older Audience Won’t “Swallow” it that easy I know……
    Let’s all remember Britney’s First Album Cover Ever…. EXACTLY. 😉

    At Least it is not BornThisWay-Bad kind of an Album Cover.
    3/5 for it as an Album Cover.


    Fix your Blog Please, Some comments Won’t show Up while scrolling down The comments Section, What’s up bro ?

  25. O’So Krispie July 31, 2013

    Absolutely not. Her team needs to be reading all these comments so they can reneg on this. What’s worse is that some real predator out there is getting his rocks off to this. Woof.

  26. in all honesty July 31, 2013

    This looks like a Japanese Hentai cover

  27. rih rox (ignore that imposter who’s always here it has my old account and now i have a new one) July 31, 2013

    A remake of Britney Spears baby one more time…only Britney’s was young and innocent.

    • Rihking na na na dont be shy July 31, 2013

      I was thinking the exact same thing.

  28. Loyalty July 31, 2013

    Eh. She needs to decide whether she wants the cute angelic image or a more mature one. Not combining the two its weird because she looks young for her age anyway. I swear she’s the same age as Miley Cyrus? And the cheap looking font that looks like something compiled on a Microsoft Office programme smh. I like Ariana but this cover is not it honey.

  29. stephy the lambily July 31, 2013

    She looks like a 13 year old getting ready to suck a 40 year old perverts d***.

  30. QueenCeline July 31, 2013

    The innocent face but provocative pose and outfit is just disgusting. We live in a world infested by sick people who prey on the helpless and I’m beginning to suspect that whoever is behind her is intentionally trying to sexualise her audience.

    Ask yourself exactly what she’s trying to tell you in the picture, because I can see it and it makes me want to puke.

  31. rih rox (ignore that imposter who’s always here it has my old account and now i have a new one) July 31, 2013

    You need to stop overreacting.

    First of all she’s a young adult…she’s 20 years old.

    She does have a short body/short legs etc so maybe it does make her look like a kid but she certainly does not have a young face like Selena Gomez.

    I don’t’ know her just heard she’s a mariah wannabe… And that’s all she’ll ever be a WANNABE.

  32. xtina_slays July 31, 2013

    Honey you 19 not 12 lets get it together.

  33. Pon_de July 31, 2013

    Bland, like her vocal coloring and disturbing like her vocal unoriginality, i.e. no surprise at cover FAIL

  34. GROSS July 31, 2013

    This looks like a child p*** ad that says “Daddy’s Little C** Guzzler”

    • stephy the lambily July 31, 2013

      LOLOLOLOLOLOOLOL I cant yall are goin innnn

  35. rih rox (ignore that imposter who’s always here it has my old account and now i have a new one) July 31, 2013

    She has a cute face but her body is not my cup tea. She has long torso/upper body and short legs.I prefer miley and rihanna’s bodies they are well balanced.


  36. Micks July 31, 2013

    Oh no I cant even blame her entirely.
    More the creative minds behind it who deal with photoshoots, themes etc by profession. Because they should have known better. The whole theme is an oxymoron: Innocence sexualized.
    What were they trying to convey?

  37. Rosie July 31, 2013

    IA @ all the child p*** comments. Have you guys seen all the majority male forums on the internet? They all stan for barely legal/underage girls like Ariana and Chloe Moretz. Her label knows this, obviously, that’s why she continues to look and act like a 9 year old even though she’s only about a year younger than Selena Gomez.

  38. channel_ROMAN July 31, 2013

    Giving me Fergie’s “The Dutchess” tease

  39. HOTSTUFF July 31, 2013

    LMFAOOOOOO it is so cheap and tacky! * trolls her non existing ass on twitter for this cover*

  40. LTM July 31, 2013

    Lol you guys are overreacting. She’s not 12, she’s 20. Almost old enough to buy a bottle of Captain Morgan. She acts young because she’s on a kids show. How confusing would it be for her to play an innocent dunce on t.v but be a grown and sexual popstar in music? Britney and Christina did racier photos at a younger age *see their early Rolling Stone mag*. She knows how to appeal to her audience. Teen girls aren’t the only ones checking for her.

  41. Beyond Amazing (Cause Bey really is!) July 31, 2013

    Um Ariana I like you and all, but…… this cover screams cheap and child p***. Change it, cuase I hated it.

  42. Ms92 July 31, 2013

    Its not about how old SHE is. Its about the message she is portraying and the way she looks in that picture. Its wrong. If she wants to be virginal and innocent, there are plemty of ways to have a cute appealing cover without f****** sexualizing it like that. Its disturbing from the lingerie to the facial expression. She is going to loose a lot of support over this. You’ll be surprised how much influence an album cover has. Not to mention its not even put together well it looks cheap af.

  43. Mark111 July 31, 2013

    I better not see any Britney Spears fan talking mess, look rewind to Hit My Baby One More Time, when she has had pig tails and a school outfit and dancing like a w****. Oh and the album cover were two inches away from flashing us.

  44. eric July 31, 2013

    The title of “Yours truly” with that picture makes it seem that she’s offering her body like a piece of property.

  45. Rihking ( na na la la la just like this) July 31, 2013

    Ew wtf????? Looks like a slutty 11 year old.

  46. Your fave is a FLOP July 31, 2013

    Ariana… baby… please. Atleast go for a more mature look. This looks cheap, this is border line Lil Kim mixtape cheap. Just….no. I still love you tho.

  48. Yours Truly July 31, 2013

    Baby I will debut at #21 on the Hot 100 and #6 on the Hot Digital Songs list this week, making her the only female artist with two consecutive top 10 debuts on the Hot Digital Songs chart. So proud of her <3



  50. Common Sense August 1, 2013

    Typical basic chick. Britney’s “Baby One More Time” cover had her fully dressed not wearing a f****** lace nightgown and stockings with her ass out like it’s for sale. How desperate.

  51. Jay August 1, 2013

    This really looks like something fan-made. I doubt this is the official album cover.
