Frankie Grande

Just two days after telling the world she'd drop the tracklist and cover art for her newest album, due February 8, Ariana Grande essentially said "F*ck it". And we love her for it.

She's only gone and posted them EARLY, sharing the iconic tracklist (Break up with your girlfriend, I'm bored is our fave) and debuting the cover art for Thank U, Next.

The cover is, of course, pink. Our homegirl Ari is also upside down, with spraypaint across her chest reminiscent of the 7 Rings cover.

The 25-year-old is maintaining her "Zero f*cks given" attitude following the release of the groundbreaking album Sweetener in August.

With 12 new tracks for us to obsess over, including Imagine and Thank U, Next, the work is sure to be a hit.

Grande is doing things exactly as she likes, whenever she likes, and the art is celebrating strong, empowered and SINGLE women.

Telling her fans, "This is my favourite album cover, I think. Brain painted me. Fredo shot me. Made with true, deep friendship and love, just like this music."

Adorable, she clearly has a wonderful support system of family and friends around her since her much-publicised break-up with Pete Davidson.

The singer has claimed she's stanning the single solo life in 2019, after being asked who she's dating now; "Spoiler for the rest of this year/probably my life: it's no one."

After Ari's upside-down Christmas tree, to embody her life currently being in an upside-down universe, she's brought that energy to her latest album artwork.

While her life remains topsy-turvy, Grande's here for it. "This time she kinda…f*cks with it." Damn right, she does.

2019 is going to be Ariana's year, we can feel it. If you need us we'll be blasting 7 Rings on our way to Tiffany & Co.


2018 has been a whirlwind year for Ariana Grande, from her career skyrocketing with her massively successful album, Sweetener, breaking streaming and chart records to blowing our minds with her Thank U, Next music video.

However, just as her career has catapulted, her love life has given her increasing trouble. After her former love Mac Miller passed away earlier in the year, Ariana broke off her engagement with SNL comedian Pete Davidson.

She has now decided to channel those turbulent emotions into her Christmas decorations… 

Her brother Frankie Grande posted a picture to Twitter of Grande's upside-down Christmas tree, evoking her trademark upside-down captions.

The tree is legitimately defying gravity up on the ceiling, and when asked out in NYC today why her tree resembles this shape, she replied;

"Sometimes life just be upside down." The lady ain't wrong. Her life is hectic as hell.

 Between a much-publicised break-up, a called-off engagement, a planned world tour, a massively successful album, an ex-boyfriend dying of a drug overdose and a feud between Drake and Kanye which she accidentally joins, Ariana has had an absolutely wild year.

Feliz NaviDAMN she makes a good metaphor.

Merry Christmas Ari, we love the tree. You go Glen Coco.


Ariana Grande has been through hell and back throughout these past few years. The 25-year-old was left traumatised after the Manchester terrorist attack in 2017. This year, the No Tears Left To Cry singer lost her friend and former partner Mac Miller.

And now, her relationship with SNL cast member Pete Davidson has dwindled. It was revealed that the couple has called off their engagement and have decided to go their separate ways.

According to reports, Pete was not emotionally supportive enough following Mac Miller’s death, which led to their break-up.

Following news of their break-up, Ariana’s brother Frankie took to Instagram to express his love for his little sister.

As a sign of support, her 35-year-old brother posted a video with his sister’s song Breathin playing in the background.

“Good morning to my beautiful, beautiful sister. I love you so much and you’re with me right now in Iceland. Listen!” he wrote.

Ariana has been swarmed with loving messages from both family and friends since news of her separation broke.

#WeLoveYouAriana has been trending on Twitter where fans have been sharing supportive messages with the God Is a Woman singer.

“I just can’t even imagine how our love is feeling rn. I really just want a long time where Ariana is happy and it seems like 2018 is just not proving to be the year for that. 2019 hurry up,” one fan shared.

Another wrote: “You are worthy of all the love in the world, never forget we got your back, love you always and forever.”

“Ariana is a talented, powerful, independent woman. Her music has helped me through some of my toughest times, and I hope us fans can do the same for her.”

Ariana has yet to publicly comment on her reported break-up.


Frankie Grande, brother to Ariana Grande and star of Big Brother, has penned a heartfelt tribute to the late Mac Miller. 

Having battled with his own sobriety issues, Frankie poured his emotions out in an Instagram caption. 

Mac, who was a platinum-selling musician, was found unresponsive in his LA home last Friday, amid reports of an overdose.

The 26-year-old had been in a relationship with Ariana Grande  for almost two years before they split up earlier this year.

In his post, Frankie wrote: 'I am beyond heartbroken over Malcolm’s death. He was a good friend and was wonderful to my sister. He was the reason I went to the rehabilitation centre where I was detoxed safely from all of the drugs alcohol and medications I was taking, when I couldn’t imagine living without them.'

'It was the place where I found the community of support that showed me that living life without drugs was a possibility and I would never have discovered that if it weren’t for Malcolm. I remember when I would get 30, 60, 90 days clean and Malcom would be there with a gift and a card and words of encouragement… telling me that he knew how hard getting sober is and how impressed he was that I was succeeding.'

Frankie outlined the trauma addiction can cause, to those who are addicted and to their loved ones. 

'Addiction is a TERRIBLE disease… many people are suffering from addiction like I am and many many of them are losing. Those of us who are struggling with addiction must stay strong. We must continue to work HARD on ourselves every single day and help each other. Our disease is strong but WE ARE STRONGER and I vow to work every moment of my life to keep myself sober so that i may be there for others.'

'This is a difficult road but YOU DO NOT HAVE TO TRUDGE IT ALONE.'

'To anyone who needs help, help is there. you just need to have the courage to ask, which I know can be EXTREMELY difficult… but when you do I GUARANTEE support will be there. do not be ashamed if you are losing the battle against addiction, shame feeds the disease, humility defeats it. please ask for help! you are NOT ALONE!'

'I am here… and I will continue to be here… for you… Malcom my friend, you will be dearly missed. and I know you will be looking down on me from heaven, proudAF for every day I live my life clean and sober… 453 days and counting.' 

Ariana Grande also posted a tribute to her ex-boyfriend, but it was a silent one – she posted a simple image of the rap artist without a caption five days ago. 


Frankie Grande, and his famous pop-star sister Ariana Grande share a very close sibling bond. 

Frankie, 33, is currently doing a stint in the Celebrity Big Brother house, and was reduced to tears on Friday night's episode.

The young Broadway actor received a heartfelt video message from his 23-year-old sister. 

In this video, watched by all the CBB house mates and the millions of viewers, Ariana expresses how proud she is of her brother, and how great he's doing. 

"I've been watching, and you're killing it. I'm so proud of you for being fan favourite every single week" she says. 

Frankie is currently the public's favourite contestant, and is expected to go far in the competition. 

Ariana went on to say 'I love you. I'm proud of you for being yourself. I miss you so much. I have so much to tell you. I have so much music to play you."

Frankie burst into tears while watching the video, while exclaiming 'I love you, I love you!' to the TV screen. 

The two musicians have a very close relationship, with Frankie accompanying his sister to red carpet events regularly.

Famous folk often have a less famous sibling lurking in the wings, waiting patiently for their own moment in the spotlight.

There's a Solange Knowles for every Beyonce; a Monica Cruz for each Penelope. 

Jennifer Lopez has Lynda (or Li-Lo, if you will), while Jessica Alba is sister to Joshua – an actor who's starred in TV dramas Dark Angel, and Monk (what, you've never heard of him?).

And now it has emerged that superstar singer-of-the-moment Ariana Grande has Frankie – her 32-year-old brother who's already made a name for himself as a YouTube sensation. 

He's furthermore appeared on Broadway in productions of Mamma Mia! and Rock Of Ages, and last year was a contestant on the US version of Big Brother.

But he's decided to take it up a notch – embarking on his very own tour.

"I am so excited about this tour because I get to bring all the insanity, glitter and excitement that makes my life so GRANDE to my fans all over the country," Frankie told PEOPLE

"I can't wait to take the audience on this journey. I live a crazy life, and for an hour or so, you can come live it with me!"

Frankie and 21-year-old Ariana have the same mother, Joan, and the half-siblings remain incredibly close today. Indeed, the elder Grande is currently accompanying his sister on her massive world tour, Honeymoon.

However, while she continues to perform around Europe for the summer, he'll shortly be departing for the US: his own shows kick-off on June 27 in Los Angeles and are scheduled to run for two-and-a-half weeks.
