In case you missed it, Ariana Grande made a big media splash this week, covering both NBC and ABC in two very different ways. First up, Grande got things started with a light and fun visit to NBC’s studio 6 B for a tapping of the Tonight show Starring Jimmy Fallon. While she was there, the “Baby I” singer did spot on vocal imitations of Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, and Celine Dion in Fallon’s musical skit, “Wheel of Musical Impressions.” Needless to say, she killed it, and it was hilarious.
It wasn’t the same kind of fun and games the next day when Grande visited Good Morning America to apologize for and discuss the candid anti-American comments she made at a donut shop in southern California that were caught on video by TMZ back in July. See that video here.
“First of all, I mean my behavior was very offensive and I apologized,” the “Break Free” singer said. “There is no excuse and there is nothing to justify it. But you know, I think that as human beings we all say and do things that we don’t mean at all sometimes and we have to learn from it. That’s part of our process. We have to learn from our mistakes and that’s how we grow.”
She continued: “I think one of the biggest things I learned from that is what it feels like to disappoint so many people who love and believe in you and that’s an excruciating feeling and you have to remember your word, your actions have, you know, ramifications and you have to really think about what you’re about to say and do because it’s important.”
