Ariana Grande has come a long way since playing Cat Valentine on Nickelodeon's Victorious. With over 113 million Instagram followers, the four-time Grammy nominee has performed and hosted on Saturday Night Live, headlined innumerable shows, and at one point, joined the cast of FOX's Scream Queens. The 24-year-old is all about inspiring confidence and self-love both as a musician and as a feminist.
That's why it doesn't come as much of a surprise that the singer is now the new brand ambassador for Reebok, where she'll continue to challenge conventions and support the brand's new styles for the following year.
"Like Reebok, I fiercely stand for those who express themselves, celebrate their individuality, and push boundaries," she said in a statement about the partnership. "I'm an advocate for people accepting themselves for who they are. Reebok's message of enabling and encouraging self-belief and self-betterment is something I fundamentally live by."

Ariana also took to Instagram to share her excitement about the opportunity, writing: "Confidence, self-belief, and self-expression," alongside a photo of herself wearing white Reebok sneakers and an oversize sweatshirt emblazoned with the Reebok logo. "I am proud to partner with @Reebok who has the same ideals and beliefs as me & that I hope to instill in my babes #BeMoreHuman #ArianaxReebok."
While her style has changed a lot over the course of her 10-year career, some of her most memorable looks have a sporty feel—and of course, no one can separate Ari from her signature high ponytail.
As the latest addition to the Reebok family, which includes Gigi Hadid, Aly Raisman, Teyana Taylor, Nina Dobrev, and Ronda Rousey, Ariana has some big sneakers to fill. But we have no doubt she'll add a unique, fearless voice to the already-badass crew.
