The ‘twist’ in Ariana Grande’s new music video is really dividing people

Friday was a big day for Ariana Grande fans.

Not only did the singer post a brand new music video for her song, “break up with your girlfriend, i’m bored”, but she also dropped her latest album, “thank u, next”.

Twitter quickly exploded into a frenzy of retweets and reactions.

Ariana Grande’s unfortunate ‘BBQ grill’ tattoo is a meme now

Sorry, Ariana. 

Although Ariana Grande probably meant well, her  botched tattoo tribute to her single “7 Rings” — which was mistranslated in Japanese to “BBQ grill” and then “fixed” to “BBQ grill finger” — is a meme now. 

People are writing their favorite phrases in different languages on their hands, and then horribly mistranslating it, like calling the constantly advertised Shen Yun performances. 

Got a new tatt to represent my Chinese heritage it means 5000 years of culture reborn

So I got a palm tattoo too! I wanted it to say puerta (Door) but it hurt like hell so I shortened it a bit. Still means the same thing I think!

Ariana Grande’s new tattoo has a hilarious misspelling

Not all tattoos turn out as expected. Ariana Grande knows this to be true, as the singer just experienced a pretty hilarious tattoo fail firsthand.

Grande planned to get the title of her latest single, “7 Rings,” tattooed on her palm in Japanese, but after sharing a photo of the new ink on Instagram she learned that isn’t exactly the translation.

Instead, Grande’s newest tattoo says “shichirin,”  which is a small Japanese barbecue grill. Whoops!

for those who are confused, ariana grande got a tattoo on her hand in japanese intended to spell out “7 rings” and posted it on instagram (now deleted), but japanese people in the comments started saying how the REAL translation is bbq grill

7 times ‘Carpool Karaoke’ was the ideal remedy to 2018

When the news is so jam-packed with chaos, uncertainty, and just generally a lot of quite miserable stuff, it’s always nice to find something reliably capable of lifting the spirits.

Carpool Karaoke does a pretty decent job of ticking this box — and 2018 was no exception.

From random celebrity cameos to important discussions about Justin Bieber’s underpants, here are some of the highlights…

1. Melissa McCarthy’s random cameo in Christina Aguilera’s episode.

Alongside the outrageous harmonies and the entertaining segment where James Corden learns how to sing in a gravelly “Fighter” voice (0:30), Christina Aguilera’s episode also features a surprise guest appearance from Melissa McCarthy (2:58).  Read more…
