James Charles admits disparaging Ariana Grande is one of his ‘biggest regrets’

James Charles is addressing negative remarks he made several years ago about Ariana Grande. During a Q&A posted to his Instagram Story, a social media user asked the beauty influencer what Ariana did to make James previously call her the "rudest celebrity" he'd ever met. "Literally nothing," James replied in his post. "The fact that I said that is one of my biggest regrets of my career and it still follows me four years later which sucks." James went on to say he plans to record a video review of Ariana's R.E.M. Beauty line. "I plan on talking about it more in depth when I film my review of REM," James added. "All I can hope is that people listen with an open mind." During a 2018 makeup tutorial that James filmed with fellow YouTubers Ryland Adams and Shane Dawson, Shane asked James to name the "rudest celebrity" he's ever met, and the makeup expert's answer was the 28-year-old Grammy winner. James said he discovered hours later that she had unfollowed him.
