As much as I really didn’t want to, I totally love the Ariana Grande single ‘Problem’. It’s so good! It’s so catchy! I can even sorta ignore Iggy Azalea‘s presence on the track if I really try hard! Well, now Ariana’s got a new song to get stuck in your head. It’s called ‘Break Free’ and it’s her duet (?) with Zedd, who everyone seems to love, as well.
I don’t know how I feel about this one – definitely not as good as ‘Problem’, but it’s got potential. Here’s the official video for you to enjoy:
By the way, I just have to mention that the stupid fucking hairdo she has going on ALL the time with that extension ponytail drives me NUTS. It ages her about 10 years and it just really needs to go. I know it’s her Amy Winehouse beehive (i.e. trademark), but it’s God-awful.

This hot ass mess of a song came out yesterday, but I decided I should probably write it up today since it managed to reach #1 in 11 countries in 24 hours. Jessie J, Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj teamed up for a screamfest pop track with added rap element in ‘Bang Bang’, a song that’s so all over the place I don’t know what the hell I’m listening to half the time. Is it catchy? Eh, kinda. Is it full of bars being oversung in ways that would rival Christina Aguilera? You betcha. Here ya go anyway…

I didn’t really know how to write the headline for this one, as it’s a bit weird. Basically, Ariana Grande decided to wish Marilyn Monroe a happy birthday on her Twitter/Instagram page yesterday and posted a photo of her, as well. Simple enough, right? Wrong – a bunch of people got their panties in a twist and lashed out at Ariana and Marilyn, saying what a slut she was and how Ariana shouldn’t be promoting her, yada yada.
“so much hate for celebrating Marilyn’s spirit on her birthday. I adore her work and have compassion for her inner sadness that she covered up on a daily basis that assholes like you made her feel in the first place!! judging her for her wildly rumored personal life (which is truly no one else’s business) is only a distraction from her talent, beauty, comedic genius and effervescent spirit…. it always breaks my heart to see people say such terrible things about people they’ve never met / don’t really know the one hundred percent truth about. so today, I choose to celebrate the beautiful parts of marilyn. we should only and always focus on the beautiful things… because what we focus on expands….. which is why I feel for the people who focus on hate…. because that’s all you have to give. and I truly do feel sorry for you because when you’ve been dead for 50 some odd years…… nobody will be wishing you a happy birthday.”
Well, fair enough, I guess? I don’t give a shit about Marilyn Monroe one way or the other, to be honest, and I do think it’s sort of obnoxious how obsessed young girls are with her despite probably never having seen a single one of her movies or knowing anything about her life, but I guess it’s nice that Marilyn’s still being remembered?

The first and biggest “problem” I have with Ariana Grande‘s new single, ‘Problem’, is that it features Iggy Azalea, which… no. She’s awful. The second is the key this entire song is sang in. Yes, Ariana’s got a great voice, but it’s still a bit too much. It does settle into itself a bit more after the first verse, but eh.
I guess the beat is pretty good, but I could never really see Ariana as the new Mariah Carey, which is what people seem desperate for her to be. Maybe I’m missing something? In any case, she first performed ‘Problem at the Radio Disney Music Awards over the weekend, and people went nuts for it, so here it is in all its glory, just for you.

So, remember how Jennette McCurdy, the pristine clean Nickelodeon star, had those lingerie pics leak online and everyone went nuts? And now suddenly, her show – which co-stars Ariana Grande, by the way – has been cancelled. Well, it’s been put “on hiatus”, but you know that shit isn’t coming back. Some people think the photos are behind it, but apparently it’s more to do with tension between the stars.
Here’s what Jennette put on Twitter, followed by some more tweets. Who knows what happened here?
A lot of you guys are asking why I didn’t attend the KCAs…. I wish I could explain everything as thoroughly as I would like to, but unfortunately a simpler explanation is all I can write. I was put in an uncomfortable, compromising, unfair situation (many of you have guessed what it is) and I had to look out for me. I chose to not go because sticking up for what is right and what is fair is what my mom taught me is ALWAYS the most important thing. I want to thank those of you who have reached out with kind words of support, McCurdians and Arianators alike. No matter who or what you support, I believe in supporting fairness first. If you have done that, thank you.
Sounds like DRAMA! Especially when you add in Ariana’s take:
I hate addressing rumors and I hate gossip but this is really bothering me. Jennette and I agreed upfront that we would be treated equally on this show in all regards (as we should be, considering we each work just as hard as the other on this show). The rumors circulating about our contracts and our salary not being equal are absolutely ridiculous and false. I don’t know who’s putting these idiotic quotes out there but I thought I’d straighten it out and try to end this nonsense. As far as the show goes, I don’t know what’s happening because I’m not directly involved with the problem but I just wanted to address this one rumor in particular because I am NOT making more money than my costar, nor do I think I should be. So we can all move on and get out of our heads that this was a money thing cause I don’t play like that at all. I am, have always been and always will be about equality and fairness.
Good lord. Even Nickelodeon is getting crazy!

Ariana Grande doesn’t really strike me as all that exciting, to be honest – not to mention her judgment is slightly questionable considering her recent dalliance with Chris Brown – but this story might bring a schaudenfreude-induced smile to your face.
It seems as though Ariana was taking her dog Ophelia for a walk, when she accidentally slipped on the dog’s pee, slammed into a wall and broke three of her toes. This comes straight from Ariana – well, from a text she sent manager Scooter Braun:
So… how did I not realize until now that Ariana Grande shares a dipshit manager with Justin Bieber? This does not bode well. Also, still not sure how a grown ass man reconciles the fact the he’s still going by the moniker “Scooter”, despite his actual name being Scott and his age being over 7.
Side note: Does Ariana Grande ever wear her hair ANY other way? Yes, that’s a serious question.
