Who hasn’t gotten drunk and splurged on a cute gift for a friend? This could be anything from a house plant to a sex toy. When you’re Ariana Grande you buy your besties engagement rings.
Grande has been teasing her next single, “7 Rings,” since her “thank u, next” video, when the title appeared on her license plate during the Legally Blonde sequence. Now, she’s shared the story of how the song came into being: On a particularly bad day in New York, Grande loaded up the helicopter (or however she gets around) with her best pals and went to Tiffany’s. “You know how when you’re waiting at Tiffany’s they give you lots of champagne?” Yes, that exact situation has happened to me many times Ariana, please go on.
“They got us very tipsy, so we bought seven engagement rings, and when I got back to the studio I gave everybody a friendship ring,” she explained to Billboard. She bought two additional rings for her mother and the infamous Nonna, bringing the total up to nine. Galadriel teas. Also, can we talk about the fact that Ariana Grande bought diamond rings for six women, officially making her a sugar mama? Rich lesbian energy!
This kind of booze behavior is apparently not out of character for the reigning pop diva. “I am champagne,” she added. “You know how people say we’re 60 percent water? I’m 60 percent pink Veuve Clicquot.”
Grande revealed the "7 Rings" single art on Instagram, along with the release date: January 18. That’s right, ladies, we’ll have a new Ariana track next week. Take this time to stock up on champagne, diamonds, and girlfriends.
