On the podcast, hosted by You star Penn Badgley, 37, Ariana, 30, talked about her “childhood, her Broadway origins, and getting to act alongside her best friends.”

The Wicked actress also revealed why she keeps casting TV serial killers as her music video leads, Penn appeared in the singer’s The Boy Is Mine video after playing a killer on You, and the inspiration for her Eternal Sunshine era.”

After the release of part two, many fans were also intrigued by Ariana’s sudden voice change that occurred mid-sentence while speaking to Penn and podcast co-hosts, Nava Kavelin and Sophie Ansari.

A listener posted a clip of the moment on X, formally Twitter, with the caption, “This voice change is sending me. Regular Ariana was coming out for a second.”

In the video, Ariana said, “That’s the only thing I thought of,” as the hosts laughed at her comment.

“That’s how I felt. I was like, ‘What just happened?'” she continued in a deeper, huskier voice than what fans are accustomed to.

Her voice then raised a few octaves as she stated, “Yeah, I’ve been writing a lot and maybe there’s some more but I would like to do a deluxe at some point.

“THE VOICE CHANGE OMG,” another stunned fan commented on the video.

Ariana responded to the comments about her voice switch as she explained, “habit (speaking like this for two years) and also vocal health. i intentionally change my voice placement (high / low) often depending on how much singing i’m doing.

The We Can’t Be Friends singer added, “i‘ve always done this BYE.”

HEALTHY VOICE

Ariana changing the pitch of her voice to assist in her craft is nothing new.

In 2013, the Bang Bang singer opened up about technique when she told her fans, “I’ve been speaking in a slightly higher placement than I usually speak in because I’ve been doing a lot of interviews all day and I’m trying to keep my voice healthy.

“But it sounds a tiny bit raspy, but I’m trying, but I usually talk, like, lazy and gravely but I’m trying to place it healthier.”

Shaking her head Ariana added, “But I sound like an idiot.”

THERAPY SESSION

Ariana got her big break on Nickelodeon show Victorious when she was 14.

She has now called for major change across the showbiz industry, insisting it should be safer for child actors.

I’ve been speaking in a slightly higher placement than I usually speak in because I’ve been doing a lot of interviews all day and I’m trying to keep my voice healthy.

Ariana Grande

Her request comes after the shocking documentary Quiet On Set aired in the US, where a string of abuse claims were made by young people who had worked on Nickelodeon shows.

Ariana, who called the allegations “devastating”, said, “The environment needs to be made safer and there should be therapists.

“Parents should be allowed to be wherever they want, not only on kids’ sets.

“If anyone wants to do this or music, or anything at this level of exposure, there should be therapy twice or thrice a week.”

She continued in part one of the Podcrushed podcast, “A lot of people don’t have the support that they need to get through being a performer at that level at such a young age.”
