What Has Hot 100 Contender Ariana Grande Been Up To With Top Douche Chris Brown?

It’s actually weirder than you’re expecting.

You may be familiar with Ariana Grande from her stints on Nickelodeon shows Victorious and Sam & Cat, or from her Billboard chart-topping album Yours Truly. Or, more likely, you’re familiar with her from spending your days perusing Maxim’s 2014 Hot 100 (and if you haven’t voted yet? Relax, there’s still time).

You’re also probably aware of Chris Brown, possibly for his music, or, more likely, for his antics as a despicable, woman-beating asshole.

The pair have been tweeting at each other like mad over the last few weeks, dropping hints of an upcoming project, which would presumably be an epic, chart-topping duet. But wait, there’s more! If the recent photos on Twitter and Instagram are to be believed, Ariana is…teaching Chris Brown ballet.


Maybe it’s just the usual Monday morning confusion talking, but we’re not sure what to make of this, beyond hoping Ariana drives one of those perfectly en pointe toes somewhere into Brown that makes a seriously long-lasting impression.
