Ariana Grande named 2018 Billboard Woman of the Year

Ariana Grande named 2018 Billboard Woman of the Year

Or could she actually be planning to unveil a First Wives Club-themed music video for her new single "thank u, next" on Ellen?

Ariana and her backup performers, Victoria Monet and Tayla Parx, channeled the 1996 film starring Bette Midler, Goldie Hawn and Diane Keaton in all-white ensembles. On Wednesday, she tweeted about how the song lyrics to "no tears left to cry" are technically inaccurate in light of her breakup.

"Ariana Grande is a star on her own terms, never bending to any particular musical trend or path in the industry", says Ross Scarano, Billboard's vp of content.

"Oh, my god!" Grande shouted as she recovered from the fall, then nearly seamlessly continued performing.

Not surprisingly, she elides the song's chorus "I'm so f-ing grateful for my ex" to "I'm so, I'm so grateful" on "Ellen".

As for the performance, it was definitely live as she almost took a faceplant trying to step down from a chair on the wedding reception-inspired set.

Naturally, Grande recovered like the professional she is, righting herself while letting out a quick "Oh my God" before returning to the song, though she did let out another laugh before reaching the track's second chorus. "Holding hands with my mama", she sang, through tears.

"We were supposed to come down?"

Then just two weeks ago her engagement to SNL comedian Pete Davidson was called off.
