Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson have been broken up for less than a month, but the singer seems to have already moved into the acceptance phase of the grieving process.

"Ariana Grande is a star on her own terms, never bending to any particular musical trend or path in the industry", says Ross Scarano, Billboard's vp of content.

On Saturday night, in a masterful bit of pop-cultural tabloid-manipulating theatre, Ariana Grande released her new single "thank u, next," a sort of affectionate kiss-off to her various famous exes.

The song got particularly emotional for Grande during a verse about her parents.

It was only fitting, then, that she channelled the 1996 film about women recovering from breakups for the song's first televised performance, on The Ellen Show.

Ariana Grande performed her latest single "thank u, next" for the first time on Ellen and her "First Wives Club" dance routine saw her nearly fall down.

In South Dakota, the Republican congresswoman Kristi Noem will become the state's first female governor. "Now, senator will do". Marsha Blackburn became the first female senator to represent Tennessee when she outlasted a challenge from former Gov.


As for the performance, it was definitely live as she almost took a faceplant trying to step down from a chair on the wedding reception-inspired set. It's one thing to sing the words, "I'm so fucking grateful for my ex", and it's another to really look like you mean them.

"One day I'll walk down the aisle / Holding hands with my mama / I'll be thanking my dad / "Cause she grew from the drama", she sang".

She called it "far from a diss track" and proclaimed it was "the opposite".

At the end of the performance, Grande, Parx and Monet all put on white winter coats before heading into the crowd and up the stairs, with DeGeneres later joking about Grande's quick exit.

"We were supposed to come down?"

'I know some of you are curious about the break up but the truth is it's nobody's business and sometimes things just don't work out and that's okay, ' he said.
