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.



Blurred Lines singer Robin Thicke revealed he has suffered huge problems with drug and alcohol addiction, admitting he "didn't do a sober interview" during the entire 2013 promotional tour for his album.

Robin also spoke about the breakdown of his marriage to Paula Patton, saying, "I told my wife the truth. That's why she left me." 

The comments were made during a deposition back in April, as part of an ongoing lawsuit that accuses Robin and Pharrell Williams of copying Marvin Gaye's 1977 hit Give It Up when writing Blurred Lines. Robin's statement was kept confidential until now, but today it was read out in a public court in L.A.

"Every day I woke up, I would take a Vicodin to start the day and then I would fill up a water bottle with vodka and drink it before and during my interviews," Robin said. "I don't recall many things that I said. In fact, I was quite surprised when I read them back sometimes."

When making his deposition, the singer said he hadn't taken drugs for the past two months but that he continued to drink alcohol. "My sobriety is off Vicodin," he explained. "When your wife leaves you, it gives you good reason to sober up."

He also spoke of his shame in taking credit for Blurred Lines, because Pharrell was the one that wrote it. "After making six albums that I wrote and produced myself, the biggest hit of my career was written and produced by somebody else and I was jealous and I wanted some of the credit," he said.

"The reality is that Pharrell had the beat and he wrote almost every single part of the song." Hmmm… we hope he's not trying to get off the hook for the Marvin Gaye controversy!

Robin hasn't had a great run of luck since releasing Blurred Lines. After breaking up with his wife, he made a follow-up album, Paula, dedicated to her. The album sold a paltry 24,000 copies in its first seven days, compared to 177,000 copies of Blurred Lines' during its opening week.
