The Side to Side artist wore a strappy black top and had her dark hair pulled into a high bun for the glamorous reveal. Ariana launched the makeup line, which is described as vegan, cruelty free, paraben free and with recyclable packaging. The Grammy winner is currently preparing for her role as Glinda in the film adaptation of Wicked. The story is a prequel to the Wizard of Oz and focuses on the friendship between the green Elphaba and Glinda, before they were known as the Wicked Witch of the West and the Good Witch. Tony and Grammy winner Cynthia Erivo will star as Elphaba.
The Tony award winning musical set in the land of Oz will be told in two parts. The stage show is two hours and 45 minutes long and in an article on IGN.com, director John Chu explained that rather than cut songs or characters he would turn the film into two parts. ‘We decided to give ourselves a bigger canvas and make not just one Wicked movie but two! With more space, we can tell the story of Wicked as it was meant to be told while bringing even more depth and surprise to the journeys for these beloved characters.’
The first chapter will be released December 24, 2024 and the second chapter on Christmas day 2025. In a Q&A with fans on her R.E.M. Beauty YouTube channel, the excited actress told her fans she wouldn’t be releasing any new music for a while so she can focus on ‘the most incredible gift’ of her life and that ‘every piece of me, every minute, every ounce of my heart, my time, my everything that I can give it… I am spending all my time with Glinda.’
