Hello LGBTQ+ community, 20BiTeen is alive and well thanks to Miss Ariana Ellen DeGeneres Harvey Milk Laverne Cox Grande.
Late Thursday night, Grande finally dropped her eagerly anticipated album thank u, next and it’s everything we were hoping for and more. The album is an emotional rollercoaster, proving that Ari is the emo Cancer queen we need in these trying times — every song is like a mood swing with a beat.
Grande also released a music video in tandem with the album (we love a prolific pop star) for one of the record’s buzziest tracks, “break up with your girlfriend, i’m bored,” a bratty little bop about stealing someone else’s man. In the video, Ari goes blonde once more, setting her sights on a hot young couple at a house party. The guy is hot, sure, but the other girl looks disarmingly like Ariana, thanks to the styling and ubiquitous ponytail.
The trio dance together, getting cozy, and you assume that Grande is simply being flirty enough to eventually snatch her very male prize. But lo and behold, it seems her sights were actually set on her doppelgänger. In the final scene, as the trio enjoy a sexy night in a hot tub, Ariana and her twin reach for each other, and the video closes with them a breath away from kissing.
Remember when “thank u, next” dropped and everyone freaked out for a brief second when Ariana used feminine pronouns for her new love interest, who turned out to be herself? Well, we may not have gotten the bisexual queen we were hoping for then, but she’s here now. Sure, Ariana has never expressed any bisexual inclinations IRL so some might call this queer baiting, but this is Ariana Grande, an undisputed gay icon, and if she wants to make a music video with a female love interest instead of another ode to heterosexuality, I ain't mad at it! She really does give the gays everything we want — faggots let me hear y’all make some noise!
