I’m having a gay stroke!
During Barbra Streisand's show at the United Center in Chicago, the vocal powerhouse and certified gay legend blew our queer minds when she invited out surprise guest performer Ariana Grande.
Met with a standing ovation and lots of gay screaming, Grande took the stage in a perfect black suit before the two performed “No More Tears (Enough Is Enough)” while holding hands and laughing. Streisand originated the 1979 hit with duet companion Donna Summer. The song, in ways, was preeminent to Grande’s chart-topper “no tears left to cry.”
This was “the best night of my life,” Grande said on stage, and later on her Instagram Story.
The two — who may not have been friends before, but feel like they have known each other their entire lives — teased a photo of their acrylic manicures on Twitter ahead of the performance.
“hello shaking and crying,” Grande later wrote on Instagram, fangirling over an artist who has been a hero throughout her career. “thank u @BarbraStreisand. don’t have words yet goodbye.” This is a blessed image, someone please put this in the Louvre.
Now can we get a joint album, à la Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga’s Cheek to Cheek, please and thank u, next.
