Ariana Grande is giving her legions of fans something special for Christmas, and it’s even arrived early. The elfish Ariana decided to continue her holiday success streak by dropping, for the third year in a row, a Christmas tune. This time, Grande unveiled the unannounced EP “Christmas and Chill” with five completely new tracks, reported the New York Daily News.
The song titles are designed to put fans in a holiday mood, such as “Wit It This Christmas” and “Not Just One For Christmas.” Ariana has been sharing the possibility of new music recently with a confirmation on social media this week.
Ariana made her new songs with a love theme while holding on to the holiday angle.
“Tis the season for some loving, so I think you should give your love to me,” suggests one lyric. Another line coos, “Down for lovin’ you’ll be my drummer boy.”
It has been two years since Grande enchanted fans with “Santa Baby” in her very first holiday EP, “Christmas Kisses.” Her 2014 release, “Santa Tell Me,” rose to 42 on the Billboard chart.
While Christmas songs are nice, the big question this holiday season revolves around Star Wars. And, Ariana has an answer, revealed Cosmopolitan.
Excited about the next episode of the Star Wars films, The Force Awakens, Grande offered her viewers in a video from Honeymoon Diaries. Did Han Solo or Greedo shoot first?
“Han didn’t shoot first because Greedo never fired a shot in the first place,” Ariana opined. “Han shot, Greedo died — end of story.”
Thanks, pop princess!
Both the Christmas songs and her Star Wars philosophy may be attempts on Grande’s side to appease Santa Claus for a few controversial actions this year.
In particular, a video revealing Ariana at a doughnut shop in California with an unsanitary icky choice when it came to sampling, followed by a statement that stunned and disappointed many of her fans.
“I hate America,” said Grande as she licked a doughnut on the counter, reported Today.
To those who love America (and/or doughnuts), Ariana subsequently expressed regret for her actions at Wolfee Donuts.
“I am EXTREMELY proud to be an American,” tweeted Grande after Doughnut Gate blew up.
Moreover, the pop singer added, she intended her commentary only for her pal who was buying doughnuts. Ariana also clarified that with regard to the doughnut-licking episode, she was concerned about obesity among children.
“Food is very important to me and I sometimes get upset by how freely we as Americans eat and consume things without giving any thought to the consequences that it has on our health and society as a whole,” explained Grande, while promising to “strive to be better [as a] public figure.”
When it comes to food, Ariana follows a vegan diet. Moreover, Grande told the Mirror, she prefers animals to the majority of people.
“I’m very proud, my family has amazing history. It’s great hearing stories of my mum growing up in Brooklyn, then moving to Florida, having me and growing up with this eccentric, fun family. Although I don’t eat a lot of Italian things, because I’m vegan. I was raised on meat and cheese, so I’ve had enough for anyone’s normal life span.”
As to why Grande chose to became vegan, she expressed her love for animals while emphasizing that she feels a vegan diet is better for her emotional and physical health.
“I love animals more than I love most people, not kidding. But I am a firm believer in eating a full plant-based, whole food diet that can expand your life length and make you an all-round happier person,” asserted Ariana.
