After it skyrocketed to take the number one spot on the iTunes charts all around the world, Ariana Grande performed her new smash hit, “Problem,” on Ellen.
The 20-year-old singer even called up her inner bad girl, à la Sandy from Grease, for the show. Her male dancers, on the other hand, made current reigning talk show queen Ellen Degeneres proud as they wore some nifty Ellen underwear with the bands showing for the occasion.
Ariana Grande also sang her latest single at the iHeartRadio Music Awards last week. And just in case you’ve seen GIFs of Rihanna laughing during Ariana’s performance, don’t worry: it’s all love between the two.
No, I mean I didn’t see her laughing at me, but when I watched it afterwards it looked like she was just shocked because I was doing something different,” she said in an interview with Australia’s The Bump. “But afterwards she was so kind to me, she was like, “Lil’ mama keep doing what you’re doing because it’s working.” And so I thought it was funny that people tried to make such a commotion out of it when she was just being playful and supportive if anything, so I don’t know. People are always trying to make a big deal out of nothing because they’re bored.”
Make love, not war.
