After the relatively calm presidential debate on Thursday night, Ariana Grande stepped up to the podium. Well, that's Madam President to you!
On Thursday night, Grande released her latest track "Promises" alongside a music video for the song. The video, directed by Dave Meyers, is an incredibly fun twist on the track itself which is quite a sexy (but still fun) tune. While the words talk about being able to change positions for your man, the video is more about the versatility of women, being able to do everything at once. This is best illustrated with Grande posed as president, running the world, looking good, while also having time to make pasta.
For her cabinet though, Grande reached out to a few queer friends! In the mix are Tyler Ford, Misha Lambert, Victoria Monet, and Tayla Parx.
The four are friends and frequent collaborators for Grande. Parx co-wrote the massively successful "thank u, next" as well as "7 Rings," and "NASA" but has also written for other stars. Monet collaborated with Grande on "Monopoly" while also writing for tracks like "Be Alright" and "Let Me Love You." Lambert, who is a singer-songwriter as well, grew up with Grande in Boca Raton. Lastly, there's Ford who is a writer and editor, who also grew up with Grande in Florida and has maintained a close relationship with since.
They arent the only ones though, Darrion Gallegos, who has been one of Grande's backup dancers for some time is also featured in the video. There are also a fw cameos that we are likely unable to identify.
The group seem to help comprise the cabinet of Grande's administration in the America Meyers has dreamed up. And though we can't say we are in any way campaigning for another celebrity as president, we very clearly can and have done a hell of a lot worse.
