What Ariana Tweeted Regarding Her Ethnicity?
Another time, Ariana tweeted that,
I had “recently learned that my grandparents are primarily Greek and part north African, Italy/Greece is shown on the chart. Simply said, I found it amusing. Which country in North Africa, Morocco or Tunisia, do you assume?
Since Ariana spoke of “the chart,” she likely used a DNA test to determine her ancestry. People of Sicilian ancestry may occasionally reveal some Greek or North African ancestry through DNA testing.
