"They got us very tipsy, so we bought seven engagement rings, and when I got back to the studio I gave everybody a friendship ring", she says. Her latest song, "Thank U, Next", is a self-love anthem disguised as a breakup track.

According to Billboard, Grande is the only artist ever to have the lead single from each of her first four albums debut in the top 10 of the Hot 100 and the first woman in three years to have a single debut at No.1 on the Hot 100. "I guess there's not much I'm afraid of anymore". "When life tries you with such serious shit so many times, your priorities change. I just want to be happy and healthy -one day - and make music". "I really don't endorse anything but forgiveness and positivity. i care deeply about pete and his health". She asked people "to please be gentler with others". That's a attractive thing.

Vevo said the "thank u, next" video, in which Grande recreates scenes from popular women empowerment movies "Legally Blonde" and "Mean Girls", reached 100 million views in under 4 days following its November 30 release.

Sqn Ldr Waghorn, a senior engineer who works on Typhoon jets, said: "To have such high profile visitors coming to say thank you is a real honour".

The album will also include a "party-ready" remake of "My Favorite Things" from The Sound of Music, as well as "7 Rings", a song recorded after a champagne-infused visit to Tiffany & Co. with her girlfriends.

The Thank U, Next singer reposted a screenshot of a message she had sent to a fan, in which she explained that she cares "deeply" about her ex-fiance and would never encourage any "mistreatment".

On refusing to abide by pop-star expectations and continuing to record new music: "I don't want to do what people tell me to do, I don't want to conform to the pop star agenda". I've learned thru my own mistakes not to be reactive on socials so I do understand. "If I want to tour two albums at once, I'm going to tour two albums at once". "It's the only way that I've been able to survive".
