Ariana Grande is still getting people to carry her around like a baby, just FYI


We haven’t talked about Ariana Grande since the Grammys, and before that, it had been months since we’ve discussed her. That’s a choice I’ve been making, by the way. Ariana has been making the promotional rounds for weeks, trying to reclaim her pop-diva glory after her bratty-diva reputation drowned out her musical success. Some days, I think she’s the female version of Justin Bieber. Anyway, yes, Ariana has a new album and her first single, “Dangerous Woman,” is already everywhere. A few weekends ago, Ariana pulled double duty as musical-guest and host of Saturday Night Live to promote her album. And according to Star Magazine, Ariana-the-Bratty-Diva is still around.

Ariana Grande’s recent SNL gig may have shown that she’s killer at celebrity impressions, but it also proved that the rumors about her unusual demand are true: She insists on being carried!

Stories have swirled for years that the pint-sized diva liked to get a lift from assistants, perhaps due to fatigue or sky-high stilettos, however Ariana has always denied the chatter. But Star’s SNL insider can confirm that during her taping she wanted to be physically totes to her costume changes – and not even by a burly security guard, but by a woman!

“As soon as a skit ended, she’d jump off the stage and expected this lady to catch her every time,” dishes the witness. “That poor woman’s entire job was to act as a human pack mule. Just because Ariana is petite, doesn’t mean she’s a baby.”

This is kind of an obvious one – we’ve heard stories of Ariana demanding to be carried around like a baby before, and I genuinely believe she does that. But it’s a given at this point – it would be like Star Magazine claiming that while at SNL, Ariana spit on some donuts. Still, it’s good to know that Ariana is still the same little brat she always was.

Here’s Ariana’s new music video for “Dangerous Woman.” I’m already hearing the song all over the radio and it seems like she’s licensed it for TV shows and commercials already. Or maybe I’m imagining that, because the whole song feels really familiar. The video seems to be shot like a Victoria’s Secret ad too, which makes me wonder if Ari wouldn’t be better off just writing jingles for commercials and TV shows. I don’t consider this NSFW, but there’s a lot of lingerie, so…whatever. NSFW.

    Is she trying to be Mariah? Why is her face so frozen looking already? Why won’t she walk? DO donuts still fear her? I don’t get this girl at all.

    • Nev says:

      Donuts. Hahahaahahahahahahahaha

    • Samtha says:

      She’s had a ton of plastic surgery, which is obvious if you look at old pictures of her. And it looks like she’s done something to her lips recently, because they seem much bigger in this video and that last pic.

  2. Jen says:

    There is something so creepy about this habit of hers.

    • SnarkySnarkers says:

      I really want video of her her jumping into the arms of some poor woman and expecting to be carried. LOL! This song sounds like a Christina Aguilera reject that someone picked out for her.

  3. ClaireB says:

    Ew. Why is she a thing? I’m getting old.

    • swak says:

      Could only listen to that for a minute or so. That high note at the end of the first few lyrics is grating.

  4. TrixC says:

    I don’t really have any views on her music, it doesn’t interest me, but I don’t get why someone in their 20s would try so hard to look and act like a 15 year old, I find it really creepy. Most girls her age want to look older and more sophisticated.

    • Naya says:

      I think she is going for younger than 15. Look at her posing with a stuffed toy in that pic, I think she is styling herself to look like an over sexualised10 year old

    • Amelia says:

      I feel like a creeper watching that video – she’s got such a young face and she’s so petite it’s like watching somebody underage.

      • lower-case deb says:

        is this a soundtrack for the next installation of 50 shades of donuts?

      • Samtha says:

        Yeah, she looks about twelve–it’s creepy.

      • Jwoolman says:

        She didn’t choose to have a young face or a small frame…. Some people are just small and/or look younger than they are. They can’t just hide away until the wrinkles come. We just have to get used to it.

    • Ramona Q. says:

      Because tweens and teenage girls are who buy her music and merch and concert tickets. Katy Perry did the same thing.

    • lucy2 says:

      I always found it odd too, especially after I saw an old photo of her where she looked her own age with normal hair, makeup, clothes, etc. It’s fully intentional, and I think it’s weird.

  5. Grant says:

    I think she has a great voice and she was really funny on SNL. Who cares if someone carries her? She probably weighs ten pounds.

    • swak says:

      You don’t have to care, but to be a 20 something and expect to be carried is just weird in my book.

  6. HeyThere! says:

    This is just WEIRD…and annoying.

  7. Lizzie McGuire says:

    Team Mariah, the elusive chanteuse & ultimate ruler of never walking.

    Mariah to Ariana Spice Pumpkin Latte Grande:

  8. Bridget says:

    Her music is just bad. She has a nice voice but it’s not enough to carry the mediocre songs.

    • Elle says:

      I thought the same but i saw her doing that musical wheel of fortune and some jazzy version of a Christmas song I think it was, and she actually has a much nicer voice than I expected. It is actually a shame she is going the bubblegum route, I think her talents are being underused

  9. gatinha says:

    does she write her own music?

  10. missmerry says:

    it seems like Mimi is coaching Grande to be her replacement in the pop world…

    bratty, overdone drama-diva-babies…

  11. KBeth says:

    This girl is insufferable, wish she’d go away.

  12. Ravensdaughter says:

    Diva or not, I find her immensely entertaining.

  13. Michelle says:

    My daughter used to watch the show she was in called Victorious and I found her voice immensely annoying. She does have a great voice, but she needs to channel it into better songs. Plus, she needs to get rid of that stupid ponytail once and for all. And if there are idiots out there that put up with her demands of being carried everywhere, it’s their own fault. Yep, she’s stupid to demand it, but they are stupid to do it. No one holds a gun to their head.

  14. Margo S. says:

    Would she just eff off already?

  15. Jo says:

    Can’t buy this girl as a woman while she insists on the cutesy styling and stupidly long hair. Chop it all off, act your age and we’ll talk!

    She can’t carry this song. She’s like a child walking around in her mum’s heels.

  16. ReineDidon says:

    Since the 10 first seconds i had the feeling I’ve seen this video before. The lighting system the ambiance are an exact copy from Chris Isaac’s music video !

    LOL Ariana, not so much talent and imagination I guess 😀

  17. calamityam says:

    I wish people would stand up to people like her. We are all the same and no one should be degraded to carrying around a grown woman because she’s lazy. I don’t understand why these people can get away with attitudes like this. Mariah, J-Lo, Bieber etc drive me bonkers with their ridiculous demands…can’t they just be happy they are famous because the little guys support them? Rant over*

  18. hogtowngooner says:

    I can’t deny that she’s talented but she’s supremely bratty and annoying. Eventually people won’t work with her and no one will be there to catch her. Figuratively and literally.

  19. mialouise says:

    Stilettos are torturous. I’m shocked anyone can walk in them. I’d have to be carried, too!

    I can’t press play because I love the fact that I’ve never heard the music of these youngins (Ariana, Drake, Demi Lovato, Justin Bieber, 1Direction, Selena Gomez, etc),not a single note. I’d like to keep it that way.

  20. love scandal says:

    I must be weird, I am 37 . . . Still love to be carried like a baby. I know it’s not the correct thing, but it’s a glorious feeling. Would definitely have to be a big strong fella though. Can you all fogive me and not ostracise me entirely?………. I do have a thing for superheroes aswelll. Lol. . . Should I invest in expensive therapy?

  21. ToxicShockAvenger says:

    I don’t buy a lipglossed pony-tailed onesie-wearing femme fetal as a dangerous woman, except to my lower back.

  22. Izzy says:

    So… still not twying to bweak fwee of her bwatty diva image. Got it.
