Thought everything about Ariana Grande’s life was super-glam and luxurious? Well, you thought wrong.
When the 22-year-old singer debuted the artwork for her new album Dangerous Woman last week, she kept schtum on a certain fact about the sexy outfit she’d been put in.
A certain fact that was the total opposite of glam and luxurious. Lolz.
In a series of images, we saw Ari working a saucy latex ensemble, consisting of a form-fitting black corset, a quirky face mask and bunny ears. Miaow, lady.
But she actually needed a little bit of help to squeeze into the racy design. And you won’t believe the method she went with…
Talking to US radio fave Elvis Duran And The Morning Show, she explains: ‘To get into my Dangerous Woman outfit they were like: “Okay, time to lube you up!”
‘I was like: “Excuse me?” and they were like: “Yeah! We gotta lube you up to get you in!” I was like: “Wait are you serious?”
‘There wasn’t any latex prep bottle – it was literally full-on lube! It said on the bottle, full-out lube. So they lubed me up and put me in! It was the funniest thing in the whole world.’
Oh, Ari. This just makes us love you even more.
Ariana also discussed her talent for mimicry on the show, having left Saturday Night Live viewers seriously impressed at the weekend for her spot-on impersonations of singers including Celine Dion and Britney Spears.
When asked if any stars have ever been insulted by her performances, she said: ‘No, no, no! When I met Celine, she told me, she was like: “When I saw you, I peed!”
‘I’m just a big fan! I’m a really big fan. I think that’s why they don’t get mad, because they know that I come from a place of love and I’m just like: “You’re f***ing amazing!”‘
