Out of all the things we truly came to terms with this summer–Trump really did that say that s#$t and Ryan Lochte is really a board certified..dumbass–one thing we also realized is that Ms. Ariana Grande is certainly not living that Nickelodeon feud life anymore because she’s, like, a grown up pop star, now, you guys!
Gently gliding miles away from last summer’s pesky donut licking, um, scandal, our favorite window shattering songstress first served us life at the top of the season with the release of her slinky, scandalous third record Dangerous Woman. (which followed a now classic romp on SNL…please come back, girl). Although the album landed in the runner-up position its first week out, the ravenous record continued to dominate the top twenty of the Billboard 200 album chart all summer long, thanks to its slinky title track, followed by the release of the thunderous “Into You,” which was paired perfectly with a cotton candy coated video in which she finally let..that..hair..down. Yas, Frankie Grande kween.
But perhaps its the way she’s closing out of the sexy season is what makes the former Sam & Cat star the queen of all things summer music (no shade, Britney…we all also know Bey now that you’re in a class all of your own) by serving us Labor Day life with the video for the third single release (we’ll get there soon, “Be Alright”) from Woman, the reggae-ed up, “Side to Side.”
The Jane Fonda/”Anaconda” flavored video and single (and according to The Cut, it’s about what you think it’s about), also co-stars Ari’s “Bang Bang” bestie, Nicki Minaj, who stops by for a little neon ignited sauna action and a little tea spilling with her girl, Mizz Grande.
While we don’t know if “Side to Side” will finally give Ariana that number one single she deserves at this point (girlfriend works really, really hard), what we can do is jazzercise it up to her eye-popping latest visual, which in turn will help you forget all about that performance of it at this past weekend’s VMAs. Enough said.
Well, that and those heels and those live pipes on an exercise bike on live T.V. is never a good idea. Never.
Then of course, there’s this….
