thank u next

The whole Ariana Grande 7 Rings tattoo debacle is honestly absurd, but yet it's STILL GOING. We're getting as bored of it as she is to be honest…

If you're puzzled about the reference, in summary our home-girl Ari tried to get a tattoo which translated to 7 Rings, her latest number one hit, but instead she accidentally got the Japanese symbol for a barbecue grill restaurant. Awkward. 

She then tried to fix it after consulting a supposed friend of hers who spoke the lingo, but her amendment translated the ink to say 'Japanese BBQ finger'. We're dead.

The Thank U, Next singer has gained a HUGE amount of attention online over the error, but now a certain tattoo removal studio has offered her some serious cash to have them laser it off for her.

TMZ has acquired an offer letter from LaserAway, a company who want to strike a deal with Grande that would offer her free laser removal of the tattoo in exchange for a photoshoot at LaserAway and one post per month for a year about her experience.

Also, ONE and a HALF MILLION DOLLARS. How do they even have that money to offer in the first place?

In response, Ari tweeted; "I'll give y'all a million to get off my nuts." to which we say; "Hear, Hear." This needs to end, stat.

Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber's infamous manager, Scooter Braun, responded to the claims;

"I can't speak for Ariana as we have not received this letter, however, if they're willing to send me the offer, I'm sure I'd be happy to get a tattoo and then remove it real quick … for $1.5 million." Eh, WHAT?

Braun continued; "Hopefully, we can make this deal before her album comes out next week…shameless plug."

The offer letter is signed by company president, Todd Heckmann, and genuinely concludes with, "Thank u, next tiny barbecue grill." We can't.

What a wild ride…we want to get off now, it's becoming a bit much.

He sees it, he likes it, he wants it, he GETS IT. America's Next Top Model icon Nyle DiMarco, who is also an avid activist for the ASL community, has created his own version of Ariana Grande's 7 Rings music video in American Sign Language.

AND IT'S AMAZING. With DiMarco's assistance, the video was directed by Jake Wilson, and features a range of models absolutely slayin' the game to Ariana's number one hit song, alongside closed captions.

DiMarco was the second male winner and first winner who is hard of hearing to be crowned America's Next Top Model. He's been a public advocate for closed-captioning videos for the deaf community ever since.

He asked Grande herself via Twitter to request that her thank u, next video be available with closed captioning for the “466 million people with hearing loss” who want to view the art too.

"Deaf here and we do enjoy your music," Nyle added. He has been campaigning for representation for years, and has achieved some major milestones while he's at it.

He also reached out to Vevo, writing, "You earn more than $650 million per year and can't even add captions to Ariana Grande's thank u, next video."

"There ARE closed caption service that will cost you ONLY six dollars (or less) to instantly appeal to a wider audience," he added.

"There are 466 million people with hearing loss, thank u, next."

YAS HENNY. He's right, of course. The deaf community face struggles with music videos daily, with only a handful of major artists providing closed-captions on their video work.

Grande took notice of the criticism, and made sure that when her 7 Rings music video debuted this month, there were lyrics available to read onscreen

DiMarco has now released an ASL version of whole iconic music video, and he's looking INCREDIBLE in a diamanté fishnet top;

Him and his male model pals are killin' it in the video, recreating Ariana's girl power song with American Sign Language to boot. Fair play lads, fair play.

Representation matters, and we all have to play a role in encouraging the fight against albeism.

Nyle continues to break down the barriers for his community, we're so glad Ari took notice.

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.

Who knew that Kris Jenner was the queen of ad-libbing?

The Kardashian momager is a key cameo in Ariana Grande's iconic noughties-inspired Thank U, Next music video, and the blooper reel has just been gifted to us and all we can say is; God is a Woman.

That woman is Kris.

Blooper reels are undeniably traditional when it comes to 1990s romantic comedies, and Ari has also bequeathed the audience with a WHOLE DELETED SCENE from the Legally Blonde aspect of the video.

thank you next legally blonde GIF by Ariana Grande

The "I'm taking the f*cking dog" scene from the renowned Reese Witherspoon flick features Ari masquerading as Jennifer Coolidge's lawyer while confronting her ex-boyfriend.

Troye Sivan getting smashed into a locker multiple times also features ("she's gonna f*cking slam me, I just know it"), not to mention a GAS moment where Miranda Sings' water breaks while Ari (AKA Regina George) walks past her. 

The funniest part HAS to be Kris Jenner getting a little too into her cameo role as Regina George's mom.

thank you next kris jenner GIF by Ariana Grande

While in the audience recording her beloved 'daughter' performing the song, Jenner whispers to the woman beside her;

“When I was raising Ariana I always told her that if a guy ever f*cks with her, she should just say "thank u, next." I told her … if she ever had sex without a condom, she’d get chlamydia and die.”

Wow, now THAT is called good acting.

As well as Mean Girls and Legally Blonde, the acclaimed video also paid tribute to Bring It On and 13 Going On 30.

Thank the Lord, we're getting the answers to all of our 2019 questions.

The main question, of course, being: Where the hell are Lindsay Lohan's iconique characters RIGHT THIS MOMENT?

Strap yourselves in, gals. Lindsay spoke to Entertainment Weekly about her thoughts on the roles, and her answers seem pretty legit.

Take a look at what the former child-star had to say, some of her answers may surprise you:

Anna Coleman: Freaky Friday

Anna Coleman was the cool gal we all wanted to be, with Jamie Lee Curtis playing the famous role of Anna's badass mom. 

lindsay lohan disney GIF

"Anna Coleman is now running for office. Secretary of State, with Michelle Obama probably and Oprah Winfrey. In 2020, so be sure to vote for her."

Hallie Parker and Annie James: The Parent Trap

Her most infamous child star role, where Lohan played twins living in separate worlds who have NO IDEA they're related until they meet at camp and switch places.

lindsay lohan twins GIF

"I think that they've swapped. I think Hallie is in London as a parenting counsellor, and then Annie is in California running a vineyard."

Maggie Peyton: Herbie Fully Loaded

The aspiring race car driver whose life is changed by her car, Herbie. Who can forget this character?

"Maggie Peyton is now the VP of Tesla."

Ashley Albright: Just My Luck

The gal who got to smooch none other than Chris Pine, and get her luck turned golden at the same time. We're jelly.

"Ashley Albright is running a fashion house. She's like a Diane Von Furstenburg with really good luck."

Aubrey Fleming: I Know Who Killed Me

Aspiring pianist and writer Aubrey disappears on a night out in the 2007 psychological thriller, and yet another random twin who was separated at birth turns up.

"So there's two ways I can go with this, because we didn't know if she had a sister or not. One is six feet under, the other one is FBI. They've both changed their names, so it's CIA, FBI and they're friends with Anna Coleman. So they're taking over the White House."

Cady Heron: Mean Girls

Cady is arguably the most famous character in the Lindsay Lohan repertoire, and lately featured as part of Ariana Grande's iconic Thank U, Next music video.

Im New Cady Heron GIF

"Cady Heron is definitely back in Africa building homes for orphan gorillas. For sure, obviously."

Elizabeth 'Lola' Steppe: Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen

The Broadway obsessed 15-year-old gal played by Lohan who gets embroiled in the New Yorker life with Megan Fox.

"Lola would be a director on Broadway. She'd be directing Mean Girls right now, duh."

Rachel Wilcox: Georgia Rule

Rachel's a rebel who gets caught up in drug use, sex and drinking at 17. Jane Fonda plays the badass granny who turns Rachel's life around.

lindsay lohan movie s GIF

"Rachel would be a lawyer, definitely a female activist, for sure."

Casey Stuart: Life Size

The tomboy who plays quarterback on the seventh grade football team. Casey sets the world into crazy mode by trying to RESURRECT her dead mother. Yup, that was a plot-line, with Tyra Banks.

"Casey would be living in Texas dating a really famous football player. She'd be friends with Giselle and Tom Brady, they'd have kids parties together.

So there you have it: a comprehensive breakdown of every Lindsay Lohan character's lives in modern day.

According to the woman herself; "I'm pretty sure they could put every character together and create a really good Capitol Hill office."

Hmm, interesting notion. The standard at the moment doesn't exactly seem sky high to be fair…

Ariana Grande was recently papped having some New York fun with ex-beau, Ricky Alvarez.

The pair were spotted out and about in the Big Apple, which sparked the Internet to speculate that they could be more than just friends.  

But are they actually getting back together? Probably not.

The singer has reiterated that she is remaining a single lady in 2019.

Taking to Twitter just two days ago, Ari tweeted: "Spoiler for the rest of this year / probably my life: it’s no one. Please refer back to this tweet for future questions."

Besides, Ariana and Ricky have always had a solid friendship since their break-up in 2016. 

We would be genuinely shookth if they did reignite the flame, as Thank U, Next proved that any love between them is just friendly.

To refresh your memory: "Wrote some songs about Ricky, Now I listen and laugh."

Fans were also quick to defend their friendship as rumours swirled.

One said: "Just because Ariana is hanging out with ricky it doesn’t mean they are gonna get back together.. in the words of miss Grande: 'Believe it or not women can be friends with people with dicks and not hop on them'” – AMEN.

We are hoping that 2019 will be an easier year for Ari, whether she finds love or not.

As for this rumour, we'll be saying Thank U, Next.

Pete Davidson has performed his first stand-up comedy show since his troubling social media posts depicting suicidal thoughts.

He opened up about his relationship with pop singer Ariana Grande, his former fiancé. Since their much-publicised split, Pete has been relatively quiet about the singer, aside from his worrying Instagram posts.

The Saturday Night Live star performed a set in Boston on New Year's Eve, and you can bet the Thank, U Next star came up in conversation.

 

He first made a quip regarding their break-up a few weeks ago, Ari clapped back with; "For somebody who claims to hate relevancy you sure love clinging to it, huh. Thank u. next."

The topic of break-up songs was brought up by Davidson during his show, with the comedian commenting that;

"Here's the thing about the breakup song. Usually breakup songs you know who it's about but you don't really know. That G named all of us," he spoke to the crowd, blatantly referring to the number one song Thank U, Next.

"Bam. She named all of us. And then, tells us, yeah, he has a big dick." He continued. 

"So I start playing it. And we're all like, "Ehhh… it's ok." We're like "Okay, it's not that bad for you."

"It made me see how ugly people can get, and how cool people can be," he reportedly said, according to Us Weekly. 

The publication claims that Pete carried on with his Ariana conversation, saying that most artists don't actually name their exes in their songs.

He joked;

"Not this wonderful lady. This diabolical genius named all of us." He also said that the smash hit song premiered right before SNL, at which point he told his cast-mates and friends:

"We all have to listen to this song and you all have to look at me, it’s gonna be rough."

Yikes. He later described crying with his mother on the kitchen table after hearing the song.

Well, break-ups rarely end without at least one party feeling heartbroken.

At least Pete admitted that the song is catchy, he's trying to see the brighter side of 2019 by the sound of things…

That's not all the records that Sheeran has broken, he has yet ANOTHER song in the top ten Spotify songs; Thinking Out Loud.

The 2014 ballad which is now played at every wedding ever sits at number five with 1.2 million streams… not bad, not bad.

Canadian rapper Drake’s single God’s Plan was the most listened-to song of 2018, with an impressive 1.1 billion streams.
