Hiya! This thredd was made for me.

I adore Ariana. I got into her relatively late, but since then I’ve seen her live and followed everything she does.

Her bangers are just… Unrivalled. Dangerous woman, into you, nasa.

Love her. :heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart:

New album out today!!! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

Big fan of Ariana, some absolute bangers and seems like a lovely person. I think her response to and continuing support of Manchester was / is excellent

Sam and Cat is a very entertaining show as well…

Seems a really good person, cannot stand her voice. Still a handful of songs I quite enjoy. Dunno, 2?

I’ve gone with a 2. Seems like a really good egg, and has obviously had a whole load to deal with at a very young age. Her music does absolutely nothing for me though, find her voice used irritatingly and hugely overproduced. When she did that concert in Manchester and sang Over The Rainbow just by herself it was really astonishingly good (made a packed Irish pub full of drunk football fans fall silent and watch emotionally) and for me that gets lost amongst the over stylised nature of her songs. 2/5.

Not fair to do one when the artist releases an album the same day! Gonna go for a 4 because she is as close to a pop oh sees at this point, consistently turning in good records.

I know, but for full disclosure I promised @TheBarbieMovie2023 I’d do it before she starts work next week.

Fair, fair :grinning:

Into You is one of the best songs this century so it’s a 4 for that alone. Lifting it to a 5 because I know she wont score highly with the bores on here.

:wink:

I am yet to explore her music at all properly, but she gets 5/5 just for the charity concert she put on in Manchester, that was just brilliant.

Can’t stand her breathy voice.

Wouldn’t go out of my way to listen to her, but wouldn’t switch her off either. Seems like a really good egg. No Tears Left To Cry is a banger. Solid 3/5.

Please can we have the cheeksters’ score?

I’ll ask the eldest later. She’s recently graduated from listening to our local radio station to Radio 1. And now she’s talking about Headie One and various other acts I’ve not heard of. Which feels right, tbh

Yeah you’re not supposed to have heard of them. I doubt my mum had heard of checks cassette collection Symposium.

On that note

  • I knew who Ariana Grande was before the Manchester bombing
  • I did not

One more quick thing before I go to work, I can confirm that the choosing and hosting of the 200th HGATR (due to be some time in January) will be up for grabs in a prize draw. There will be a modest entry fee, the entirety of which will go here

The nature of the charity means the draw will obviously be way before the thread is due but that’ll just give you more time to plan a good one. More details to follow.

Unashamedly loved the last album. Dunno who produces her stuff but they’re a genius
