Ariana Grande wants to 'bring light'

Grande gave Fallon her first real interview since the horrific bombing attack on her Manchester show past year. While Ariana told Jimmy Fallon that Sweetener "was about bringing light to a situation or to someone's life", some interpreted the name in a different way.

She hung out with Fallon, performed a sketch called "NBD" (No Big Deal) and her newest song "No Tears Left To Cry". Other songs on the new album are titled "The Light Is Coming" and "God Is A Woman".

During her appearance on the late night show, Ariana also revealed some exciting details about her forthcoming album, including the title and release date.

The 24-year-old singer took some time away from the spotlight following the end of her tour last year (17), which came after a horrific terrorist attack at her gig in Manchester which claimed the lives of 22 people.

Yaffe was coming at the meeting, police officials were placing handcuffs on the two guys and leading them from their cafe. Charges of trespassing and creating a disturbance were dropped that night.

Ariana certainly gave us everything and more during her co-host slot. As Grande explained to Jimmy Fallon Tuesday, clues as to the final Sweetener tracklist are actually tucked nicely into the video.

The episode was an emotional rollercoaster, as she earlier joyfully participated in a game called Musical Genre Challenge in which she nailed a comedy cover of Kendrick Lamar's HUMBLE as an Evanescence pop song. There's a reason Grande continues to be compared to the likes of Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston - she practically specializes in 90s diva impersonations.

Perhaps even more entertaining than her performance, though, was watching Grande hobble over to the screen because she seemed to have trouble reading the musical generator.

Ariana Grande is easily one of the hottest singers on the entire planet right now, so we thought it was about time we celebrated Ari in all her glory. The album will be released July 20th. The interview wasn't about Manchester, though Fallon did enthuse about how "strong" Grande is for keeping her career going after the bombing. "I am so excited for this new chapter with you all".
