Busting the Headlines
Ariana Grande Doesn’t Have A Drinking Problem
The time has come when another fake news article starts taking over the social media feeds we can no longer trust.
Ariana Grande has seen her name in the media more times than people have visited the Great Wall of China (est. 10 millions visits per year).
There’s absolutely no surprise that a comment made by the singer, during an interview with Billboard, would be the next headline. Ariana said, “I can’t believe it, but, like, so can,” — in response to her new song, thank u, next being an instant success.
She followed up by explaining the song was actually written after having a few drinks with some friends, “It’s me and my besties tipsy off champagne — and me with a broken heart — just letting it out and having fun. I love this more than any other song I’ve ever put out,”
Sadly though, the reality of the song keeps repeating, with Ariana saying, “I can’t even say ‘good morning’ to anyone without crying… I don’t think I’ve ever consumed more alcohol than I have in the past month… I am champagne. You know how people say we’re 60 percent water? I’m 60 percent pink Veuve Clicquot.”
That right there is the new headline, but we have some breaking news… she isn’t an alcoholic, and simply expressed her current feelings in response to the situations that have occurred over the last few months specifically. Numerous tabloids are reporting that she is going through a breakdown and has become an alcoholic, but it’s completely false. A source connected to her label confirmed that the headlines are simply raw quotes taken from an interview.
Combining the quotes, in the true context, justifies her saying she’s “consumed more alcohol than I have in the past month,” — she’s saddened by the current chapter in her life.
Ariana goes on to say, “feminine energy and champagne and music and laughter and crying,” will be required in her upcoming project that she’s working on. She said, “This [album is] not particularly up lifting… a lot of it sounds really upbeat, but it’s actually a super sad chapter.”
