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. 



It's well known that Ariana Grande is OBSESSED with her dogs. 

She currently has six of them including Coco, Toulouse, Ophelia, Fawkes, Cinnamon and Sirius, and we are sure she will be adding to this collection again soon!

Toulouse is a beagle-chihuahua mix and was the second dog adopted by Ariana from an animal shelter and he's about to his the big time.

Ariana took to Instagram lastnight to share some exiting news for the pooch as he has been asked to model for the brand, Coach.

Ariana got over one million likes on the photograph announcing the new career for the dog, with many people thinking it was a joke. 

She then posted again a few hours later a picture of the model himself with the caption "a @coach model (i laughed out loud when i typed that / the best part is i'm not kidding) so we know it's for real. 

We now just have to sit tight what exactly Toulouse will be modelling. 

Recently when she was on her way to London during the honeymoon tour, she ran into a bit of trouble getting Toulouse and Sirius through the port in Dover. 

It is reported that she almost got herself arrested when trying to sort the situation out, until her manager Frank stepped in and calmed the situation down. 




Yesterday she drew scores of fans to le Zénith – the Paris stadium where she performs this evening – for her sound-check, but this afternoon Ariana Grande has some well-deserved down-time before her big performance.

She posted a picture online of the Arc de Triomphe, while earlier this afternoon she also took to Instagram to offer fans a sneak-peak of her opulent hotel suite, decorated in a traditional French style.

And while she and her boyfriend of a year, Big Sean, may have parted ways last month, Ariana certainly isn't lonely: Toulouse, her adorable beagle-chihuahua mix puppy – one of her SIX dogs – is visible lounging on the bed with the superstar singer.

Childhood BFF Alex Luria, who has also joined her in the French capital, couldn’t resist posting an additional snap of Toulouse – complete with a princess crown.

Ariana jetted into from LA early yesterday morning to kick-off the second leg of her Honeymoon tour.

She’ll play two dates in Paris before moving on to Germany and Scandinavia. She has five concerts lined-up in the UK, but sadly won’t be visiting Ireland on this occasion.

Yesterday afternoon, the 21-year-old singer was spotted talking animatedly on her iPhone. She wore a short white skirt, and oversized grey wool jumper, and accessorised with a small white leather bag, and white-rimmed sunglasses. Her hair was styled in her signature ponytail, and she also wore diamond stud earrings.

French fans took to Twitter to share these images of Ariana in Paris
