thank u, next – Ariana Grande

Can we give it up for Ariana Grande? The R&B-pop queen has had a tough few months of 2018—the tragic loss of ex-boyfriend Mac Miller and a very fast, very public engagement that could have ended, well, more privately. And yet, she’s still got nothing but compassion and grace. Far from the diss track that some social media back-and-forth may have been heading towards, here she proposes a toast—to new beginnings, to living and learning, and most of all, to loving ourselves. “I know they say I move on too fast/But this one gon’ last”, she sings, blowing a kiss to the girl she was and embracing the woman she’s becoming. “Cause her name is Ari/And I’m so good with that.”
