No filter? Nickelodeon teen star Ariana Grande turns 20 years old on June 26, but instead of thinking about which birthday cake she wants or what her gifts will be, the former Victorious star says she's hoping for something entirely different: Curves!

“I'm going to be 20 in a month, I find that terrifying and unbelievable,” she tweeted to her six million followers on Sunday, May 26 . “Does this mean I'll finally get boobs and an ass?”

As her self-titled "Arianators" rushed to her support, tweeting her how perfect she is, "The Way" singer assured fans that she was OK, writing, "Thank u I'm playin. Gotta <3 what God gave you.. Or in my case didn't."

A day later on Monday, May 27, the Sam & Cat star set out to clarify her tweet, writing that she's at peace with her petite figure. Next to the post, the 5-foot-3-inch starlet tweeted a revealing picture of herself on her Instagram page. Wearing super-short Daisy Duke denim shorts and a black tank, she faced the window, proudly showing off her "little tush!"

"I am well aware of the fact that this photo is COMPLETELY uncalled for but after my tweet yesterday asking for bigger curves I decided to take it back and be happy with what God gave me,” she wrote. “I'm proud of my little tush!! Big, small, curvy, flat, tall petite... Love the skin you're in!!!! It's beautiful because it's yours!!!!!"

She then quoted Tyra Banks, writing, "If somebody tells you you're not beautiful, turn around and walk away so they can have a great view of your fabulous ASS." She added, "I also can't believe I'm posting this."

In the past, Grande -- who jogs and dances for exercise -- has been vocal about spreading body confidence among her tween fans.

"Too many young girls have eating disorders due to low self-esteem and a distorted body image," she told SHAPE in 2011. "I think it’s so important for girls to love themselves and to treat their bodies respectfully."
