Ariana Grande’s recent album cover for Thank U, Next had fans gawking over her seemingly goth aesthetic. However, Grande recently revealed in a tweet that her vampy look was to pay homage to her number one supporter — her mother.
According to the tweet, Grande’s mother, Joan Grande was the original wearer of the lip color.
“shoutout to the baddest, most intelligent, most thoughtful and generous, strongest (like you have no idea), black lipstick wearing for no occasion mama,” Grande says in a tweet. “i hope i can be half as fly and wonderful and graceful as u are one day.”

Recently, despite popular belief, Grande’s song “NASA” is not about her ex Pete Davidson. Fans began speculating the song’s meaning after a photo of Grande and Davidson resurfaced. In the photo, Davidson was wearing a NASA hoodie.
However, co-writer Victoria Monét confirmed that the song wasn’t about Davidson’s fashion choices.
