God is a woman

Ariana Grande has some SERIOUSLY dedicated fans, who will back her up no matter what the circumstances are. Even if it means destroying a new song of hers to replace it with a slightly newer banger.

The Sweetener singer has proven herself to be a good sport, and now she's supporting a campaign against her own single (and pure BOP) 7 Rings.

The pop star's fans have randomly launched a movement called #Boycott7Rings in order to dethrone the song from the US Billboard Hot 100 chart, but not for the reason you think…

Basically, the 25-year-old singer has dropped track after track for her loving fans, and they want her latest single Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I'm Bored to take the number one spot.

The song features on her new album (the second in six months) called Thank U, Next, and has some pretty controversial lyrics.

Some call it toxic femininity to encourage a man to break up with his girlfriend to get with her, others say it's just another incredibly catchy banger from our gal. Oh, and the video features the SEXINESS of Charles Melton.

If you're unfamiliar with Melton's work, he's basically one of the hottest lad on the Riverdale planet. And there are many of those, as we know.

Ari's fans are either sneaky or pure genius, we can't decide. It seems the singer herself is very open to the chart swap, throwing her support behind the campaign.

She wrote to Twitter; "Y'all are so insane and funny and I love you. Nothing's funnier than “boycott seven rings”….. I can’t. Whatever’s meant to be will be, babies. I ain’t going nowhere."

They really are insane. To be fair, the campaign is a total win-win for pop's reigning princess.

Fans begged her to tweet the hashtag, which she did but later deleted, writing, "Are you happy now?" We're guessing they were ecstatic.

An especially devoted fan is having a streaming party to block the song, to which Ariana replied:

"This is a wild time for us, do ur thing but also like how is this our problem right now …… what the f*ck." Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored is 100 percent a stand-out hit from her new album, and the saucy music video is helping.

The gal can't escape the huge chart success, so we wish her our congrats. She deserves it with all those tunes she's dropping, and even got a Grammy out of it.

Ariana Grande has reportedly pulled out of her Grammy Awards performance after having a disagreement with the producers over which songs she would perform. 

Sources at Variety are claiming that she felt "insulted" after the producers refused to allow her to sing 7 Rings, her latest single from upcoming album Thank U Next.

The album is due out two days before the Grammys, and the 25-year-old singer has appeared on billboards across the USA promoting the show, which takes place this Sunday.

Not only will she not be performing, she won't even be in attendance. YIKES…also devastating. We'd have loved to see her perform.

A compromise was apparently reached where 7 Rings could be sung as part of a medley, but she pulled out after the producers insisted that the second song choice was theirs to make.

The source also stated that such stipulations were not imposed on any other show performers, which is interesting. 

Grande has been absolutely KILLIN' IT this year, with Billboard number one album Sweetener and singles Thank U Next and 7 Rings.

Who can forget the tunes God is a Woman and Breathin' too? She's been a gift. She's nominated in some of the Grammys biggest categories, including Best Pop Vocal Performance for God is a Woman and Best Pop Vocal Album.

The story is super similar to that of Lorde, who pulled out of the Grammys performance last year when producers told her she wasn't allowed to perform a song from her second album, Melodrama, which was nominated for Album of the Year.

Hmmm…suspicious. What's up with the producers?

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.

Ariana Grande is doing things HER WAY from now on, including dropping an album whenever the heck she wants, reminiscent of Beyonce'e Lemonade.

Despite the fact the 25-year-old singer only dropped Sweetener in August, and blew our minds with its girl power greatness, her forthcoming album Thank U, Next will drop on February 8.

We, for one, CANNOT WAIT to hear the tunes in all their pop gloriousness, judging by how incredible her latest song 7 Rings is.

Ari has given us a taster for what's to come, posting the album's setlist to her Instagram account and sending her fans into a frenzied furore.

The gal can pretty much do whatever she pleases considering her phenomenal success, a Billboard number one album and numerous Top 100 songs from the same release. 

The album has 12 tracks, including recent tunes such as Imagine, 7 Rings and, of course, the great Thank U, Next.

She grouped the songs into three categories of four, which probably has a deeper meaning but we sadly don't have this insider knowledge as of yet. Hit us up if you know any deets.

The names are already iconic; Fake smile, bad idea, ghostin, NASA, make-up, and our personal favourite, break up with your girlfriend, I'm bored.

Ari had a rough year in 2018, with her much-publicised break-up, her ex-boyfriend's overdose and the grief from Manchester's bombing attack.

She has recently tweeted that releasing the album just before Valentine's Day isn't to get her fans in the mood for love, it's to get them empowered as strong, single woman. We stan.

Nevertheless, she persisted. Ari is one talented woman, who is giving us some pure fire in the form of music.

The album can be preordered from Friday, and we'll even get the ARTWORK to drool over too.

This girl keeps on giving, get ready for even more greatness people.

Ariana Grande OWNED 2018, there is absolutely zero question about that.

It's looking like 2019 will be yet another year of the Ari, after she released her pink-infused Tokyo themed music video for 7 Rings. 

"Whoever said money can't solve your problems, must not have had enough money to solve 'em. They say, "Which one?" I say, "Nah, I want all of 'em" = The life we both want and deserve.

It's a badass anthem of female empowerment, and touches on her past heartbreak and current happiness as a single, but powerful woman. YAS GURL.

The track is an ode to her best friends, and the rhythm and lyrics are inspired by The Sound of Music's classic tune My Favourite Things.

"Wearing a ring, but ain't gon' be no 'Mrs', bought matching diamonds for six of my bitches. I'd rather spoil all my friends with my riches, think retail therapy's my new addiction," she croons. GET IT HENNY.

"Been through some bad shit, I should be a sad b*tch. Who woulda thought it'd turn me to a savage?" she sings, on top of a kitchen island, looking INCREDIBLE.

She's seeing the world through rose-tinted glasses, it would seem. From sexy ensembles abundant to unreal feminist themes while dancing ironically in a kitchen setting, the video is set to be a hit.

Let's examine the best Easter egg aspects to the video, for scientific purposes only. Naturally, her fans have gone WILD over the GRRL power video, with glitter and pink everywhere to be seen.

She embraces her wealth, suggesting that in fact, money can buy her happiness and retail therapy can help her to recover from break-ups. Why not, gal. Why not.

Ariana was definitely inspired by the hip-hop industry, her glamorous pink fur coat is sure to inspire fashion trends, and her new-found confidence at her hard-earned cash is reminiscent of male rappers.

Memes are also sure to be hoppin' online, we're seeing some absolute gems already:

1. A Rap Goddess is born

Ari raps now? The Sweetener songstress makes her love for the finer things in life well known in the video.

From "lashes and diamonds" to "ATM machines" and "breakfast at Tiffany's," Ari lives the high life on her own terms and her own earnings.

True Arianators will notice that the intro for 7 Rings is suspiciously similar to the one included in the music video for Thank U, Next. Our gal-pal Ari was dropping hints WEEKS ago.

2. It's a Squad Session

Her best friends joined in on the video action and are all featured as "six of my b*tches." 

Ariana gifted these six lucky women to Tiffany & Co. rings on a day out in New York City, hence their starring roles.

She revealed on Twitter that the inspiration happened on a "pretty rough day in NYC", after which her besties brought her to Tiffany for "way too much champagne". That's our regular Saturday, sure.

 Ariana shared at the time. "On the way back to the studio, Njomza was like, 'Bitch, this gotta be a song lol.' So we wrote it that afternoon."

3. Mac Miller's best friend has a cameo

Singer-songwriter Njomza was a close friend of the late rapper, and Ari's ex-boyfriend. The pair frequently collaborated, and Njomza made sure to perform at Miller's tribute concert last October.

Ari gifted him with one of the six rings, presumably as a nod to their paralleling loss.

4. A gal's best friend is her dog

Ariana's doggo Toulouse is renowned in the celebrity pooch world, and even ended up making an appearance in one scene of the video because he "literally wouldn't leave" while filming.

Attention seeker much?

5. The signature ponytail gets a role

Grande's go-to hairdo had to get a shout out, it's been her guiding light since she released her latest album, which rocketed up the charts.

After dying her hair red for years on Nickelodeon's Victorious, she was compelled to use hair extensions to cover up the damage.

She's now embracing her longer-than-life tresses, with the lyric; "You like my hair? / Gee thanks, just bought it…" 

7 Rings marks the second single from Grande's upcoming album, thank u, next, after Imagine was released.

The album marks her new ability to drop music whenever she wants, a hip-hop trait which has been predominantly used by male rappers, and made famous by Beyoncé.

The album is sure to be as big a hit as Sweetener, the more amazing girl-power music from Princess Ari, the better.

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 had quite a rollercoaster year, from facing her grief following the Manchester bombing attack in May 2017. to becoming engaged to Pete Davidson, to losing her ex-boyfriend Mac Miller. to her scandalous break-up with Davidson.

The 25-year-old pop superstar has barely had time to breathe, the poor gal. 

Her new album, Sweetener, has broken global records, cleared our skin, made us dance and not to mention was the impetus for her becoming the most listened to female artist on Spotify.

Last night, the Thank u, next singer was clearly moved as she accepted Billboard's Woman of the Year at the corporation's Women in Music event in New York.

"This is really special. I want to say that I find it interesting that this has been one of the best years in my career and one of like the worst years in my life," she artist said, as she was honoured onstage.

She added that she felt "completely undeserving" of the Woman of the Year title, and went on to thank her team but was too overwhelmed to remember everyone in her life who she wanted to mention.

Ari spoke about the dynamic between her career and her personal life, saying; "A lot of people would look at someone in my position right now as an artist that could be at her peak and think, 'She’s really got her shit together, she's really on it. She’s got it all…"

"And I do, but as far as my personal life goes, I really have no idea what the f*ck I’m doing." Ari has become a lot more open recently about her turbulent emotions, as well as her mission to work on her relationship with herself.

"It's been a very conflicting one, and I just want to say if you're someone out there who has no idea what this next chapter is going to bring, you’re not alone in that."

In true Ari style, after giving us a message of hope, she delivered a final silly remark; "I'm not going to cry, that's really annoying," she joked.

She continued;"I’m really looking forward to embracing whatever happens and whatever comes my way." As she wrapped up her speech, she made sure to give a shout-out to her BFF's Victoria Monet and Tayla Parx.

"I look forward to hopefully learning to give some of the love and forgiveness that I've given away so frivolously and easily to men in the past to myself, hopefully, this year," she declared, in a totally iconic manner.

No one can deny how strong Ariana Grande's Instagram game is. I mean, the gal's got 135 MILLION followers, and she know's how to grab our attention.

This time, she got a little assistance from her cousin and the classic Lindsey Lohan flick Mean Girls in order to troll her fans. God is a woman, so she may as well show them some love, especially since she's officially DONE with marriage.

Ari loves a good practical joke, and this time it involved an affectionate PDA with her longtime pal and relative Courtney Chipolone:

In a photo posted to her Instagram yesterday, the Sweetener singer appears to be kissing Courtney while their other galpal, Alexa Luria, looks on with an uncomfortable 'Thank u, next' expression.

Ariana wrote a caption to quote the cult teen comedy, alluding to the scene when Karen admits to kissing Seth Masakowski: "'Yeah but she’s my FIRST cousin."

According to Karen's logic:

"So, you have your cousins, and then you have your first cousins, and then you have your second cousins…" Classic Karen.

Ariana kept the Mean Girls references coming, adding another Instagram post of herself and her two friends:

That caption recreates the scene involving Jason the "skeez":

"'Wuld u like us to assign someone to butter your muffin?'"

She then posted a third pic with just Alexa, including the iconic Regina George line:

"'I’m on an all carb diet GOD KAREN U ARE SO STooPID.'"

'One taught me love, one taught me patience, one taught me pain'

The now iconic lyrics of Ariana Grande's new HELLA SPICY self-love song that has shaken the globe.

The tune features lines about her last four serious ex-boyfriends: Ricky Alvarez, Mac Miller, Big Sean and of course, Pete Davidson.

TBH we all expected her to shrow some (lamp) shade all around, especially seeing as Pete Davidson recently made a far-too-soon joke about their engagement, but Ari took the highest road of all, and said 'Thank you, next' to immaturity.

She's a far bigger person than we are, morally, that's for sure.

We've taken the liberty to dig up the most hilarious 'Thank You, next' memes on the net, and boy have we hit the jackpot of comedy. Buckle up, lads.

1. Shrek is love, Shrek is life. Apparently Ariana Grande fans concur with this statement? Who knew.

2. The twist on the most famous line from Notting Hill, and possibly one of the greatest Hugh Grant rom-com quotes, was tweeted by Ari herself. Though who would shrug off Julia Roberts? 

3. Sam Carmichael, Harry Bright and Bill Austin teaching us love, patience and pain… Mamma Mia just had to be included on this list didn't it? 

4. The sequel has inspired some of the greatest of all time (GOAT) memes, and it wasn't left out in this occasion either:

 5. Detective Hopper from Stranger Things (DK Harbour) absolutely annihilated the world's fandom feels with a single Instagram post=

NOT. ABLE. 

6. This one any gal can relate to:

Pretty much just constant pain though… let's not lie to ourselves. 

7. What romantic triple threat could skip the Gilmore Girls? Those boys had our hearts, Jess was always our personal fave but WE LOVED THEM ALL. Who are we kidding?

8. Some gas folks out there decided to create a pun on Ariana's 'ex' and transform it somehow into an X-Men reference…

9. Milk politics was then brought into the equation (yep, really), where the eternal battle between dairy milk, oat milk and almond milk rages on=

10. Let us never forget the three brothers who raised us through the Disney years=

11. Last, but by all means not least, the Harry Potter edition featuring Draco Malfoy, Ron Weasley and Harry=

 Those boys had us feeling all kinds of emotions, much like Ari's entire new album, Sweetener.

In light of everything Queen Grande been through over the last few years, Ariana makes sure to confirm to her fans that the most important relationship she has is with herself.

She's dead right, we say. As Ru Paul affirms: "If you can't love yourself, how the hell are you gonna love anyone else?"

God is a woman, but these memes need their own religion.

Ariana Grande's former fiancé and SNL star Pete Davidson has spoken out for the first time about his controversial break-up with the singer.

Davidson co-hosted the comedy night Judd & Pete for America alongside Judd Apatow to benefit the political group Swing Left, which was his first public appearance since his split from his girlfriend of five months.

Describing the ending to his whirlwind romance to the Sweetener artist, he told the crowd: “F**k my feelings,” before saying to fans that he feels like a “good guy that just keeps getting kicked in the d**k.”

He also mentioned covering up his tattoos of his former fiancé, which is not the first time he has had to alter his body art to reflect his break-ups.

“I’ve been covering a bunch of tattoos, that’s fun,” Davidson quipped, "I’m fucking 0 for 2 in the tattoo department. I’m afraid to get my mom tattooed on me, that’s how bad it is."

“So, obviously you know I, we broke up or whatever but when me and her first got engaged we got tattoos,” Davidson continued. “And it was like in a magazine like, ‘Was Pete Davidson stupid?’ And 93 percent of it said yes.

“So my boy, he was like, ‘Don’t listen to that shit man. They’re literally fucking haters.’ And I’m like, yeah, fuck that. I’m not stupid. And the other day we were in my kitchen and he was like, ‘Yo bro. Turns out you were stupid.'”

Grande has removed herself from many of her social media sites, except Instagram, and has returned her $100,000 engagement ring to Davidson.

In today's Instagram story between pictures of her shoes and dogs, the singer uploaded a note referencing self-love: "Protect your peace, get rid of toxicity, cleanse your space, cultivate love," it said.

She was recently devastated by the death of her former partner, Mac Miller, of an overdose at the age of 26. Reports are claiming that her break-up with Davidson was possibly a result of this tragic loss.
