Wait… is Ariana Grande a local?!
Ariana Grande has a very specific aesthetic on social media. It's reason 892627364 why we love and adore her.
Anybody who follows her will know she’s a huge fan of the cloud emoji, she always writes in lowercase and she’s partial to some upside down text.
However, one thing you will never catch the ‘thank u, next’ singer doing is using the laughing face emoji. Well, that is, until now.
The guys over at The Grande Room - an Ariana fan account - were shocked to their very core when they noticed the pop sensation, who embarks on her Sweetener World Tour in March, used the emoji in a reply to her friend Victoria Monet on Twitter.
Victoria had tweeted: “Thank you for coming to visit me in the studio and giving me stack ideas that are 2 whole OCTAVES UP that I’ll never achieve without science (laughing face emoji, crying face emoji) ILY.”
Ari then replied: “SHUT THE F**K UP HONEST TO GOD (laughing face emoji, crying face emoji).
The Grande Room screens hotted the exchange and posted it on Instagram, captioning it “the emoji.”
One fan commented: “The local in her jumped out.”
Another added: “She may be a local, but she's our local.”
