Ariana Grande: Stay home, the spookiest thing on Halloween is the pandemic

Ariana Grande has been telling her fans since the beginning of the pandemic to socially distance, to stay home and not to party. She’s consistently been a thoughtful, decent human being when it comes to this issue and a lot of other issues frankly. I appreciate how she’s grown as a person. I just wanted to talk about her post warning to fans not to party on Halloween. She posted an adorable photo of a black kitten dressed as a bat (that’s below!) with this message:

happy best day of the year everyone ! 🦇 please dress up, take photos, get in your pjs and stay your asses home bc the spookiest thing going on tonight is still this massive pandemic.

Yes exactly! My town had a haunted house, the same as last year. Every time I saw the signs for it I was thinking “well the fact that you can die a couple weeks later is the scary part.”

Ariana also retweeted and responded to Tinashe’s message not to party:

We just saw Kim Kardashian throw a big party on a private island, but worse than that her stupid sister, Kendall, had a Halloween party inside at a bar! That’s just outrageous.

I continue to be amazed and horrified by the way people are behaving, particularly people I used to hang out with. I just saw photos from a Halloween party I attended last year, held again this year, again inside with no masks in sight and people not socially distancing. There were less then ten people there but that’s still not ok. Around April I stopped talking to them when I could tell they were not taking covid seriously. Obviously if those people are partying maskless inside they’re just as lax about seeing other people and I know they’re not in a bubble. It sucks. I miss them and being with people, but I doubt I’ll ever see them again socially, even when this is over. There are some things you can’t forget or get over. On the bright side I’ve met about 20 women from all over the world who I have more in common with than I considered possible in friends. We did a Zoom Halloween party and it was a blast.

Also I was going to do a whole post about how the US just set the record in single day coronavirus cases, but it’s just sad and angering and awful. F’ck these people hanging out in person like nothing is wrong. It’s coming from the top though, you can be sure.

    If you would have told me by 2020 the singers I would be most impressed with for their common sense, use of platform and maturity would be Taylor Swift and Ariana Grande. I would have thought you lost your mind-

    • Dierski says:

      +1 I think that same thought so often lately! 😂 Still a pleasant surprise.

      • Becky says:

        Oh it’s fantastic but not what I ever would have thought when Taylor was doing Taymerica and Ariana was licking donuts.

        But honestly they both have really impressed me during the last few years.

        Side note because I don’t think it was covered but did you see the voting add Taylor gave her song to- chills

        @Becky: I hadn’t seen this ad but just went and found it and…wow. Thanks for pointing it out as it’s incredibly well done.

    I love her, and her new album is out now and very good!! So over messy people endangering others. More of Ariana please!

    • Otaku fairy says:

      POV is my favorite song off the new album.
      Love that picture of the kitten as a bat. Adoracat.

      • Grant says:

        POV is a show-stopper, for sure. I also love love love My Hair, along with Motive, Love Language, Nasty, and Safety Net.

    love her new album. and also that she seems to be uninterested in the “in” crowd. she exudes confidence in her music, so i appreciate that it seems to translate to real life in that aspect.

  5. Grant says:

    She really has evolved so much since the Manchester bombings. I never expected that I would look to her and Taylor Swift as voices of reasons in this bat-sh!t crazy year. Also, her new album is absolute fire, filled to the brim with brilliant, silky bops. I really respect the way that Ari refuses to chase trends and just releases music that she likes, like with this new record which is almost 100% R&B and less flash-in-the-pan pop music. And that whistle register! Whew Lawd! Take me to nirvana, Ari.

    Her face looks different.

    I did read that for Kendall’s party people were required to test negative a few days in advance and then they did rapid testing at the door so at least there was some effort to not host a super spreader event, but still SO DUMB and such a slap in the face to throw a huge party when people are still afraid to go out and get groceries. Not that the Kardashians have ever been my moral compass but so many celebrities really doing the most to be the worst during this pandemic. Like Tyra Banks tweeting about how she’ll order the same meal from a bunch of restaurants to see which one is best which is so wasteful any day of the year but when food insecurity is at a high? These people enrage me.
