How cute is this photo of Ariana Grande with Cinderella and Prince Charming??
To celebrate her 21st birthday, which is tomorrow June 26, Ariana and a bunch of her family and friends returned to Florida to hang out at Disney World. In fact, Disney chefs created a four-tier birthday cake for Grande in Cinderella’s favorite color, Bibbidi Bobbidi Blue.
In other great Ariana Grande news, MTV’s Total Request Live, aka TRL, is coming back for ONE day only! MTV has announced that Ariana will take over the iconic MTV Times Square studio for “Total Ariana Live” on Wednesday, July 2 AT 7pm ET/PT. Hosted by MTV News’ Sway Calloway, the 30-minute special will bring fans closer to Ariana than ever before where she will perform a stripped down version of her #1 hit “Problem,” debut her new single, “Break Free,” as well as make a surprise announcement. With Ariana Grande fans being encouraged to utilize the hashtag #TotalArianaLive all over the world, the special will premiere on MTV in the U.S. at 7:00pm ET/PT on Wednesday, July 2nd, with encore airings to run on MTV’s international channels within 24 hours. Following the U.S. broadcast, fans will also be able to watch the show on demand across MTV’s platforms at totalarianalive.mtv.com.
Ariana said, “It’s a huge honor to be able to bring back a show like TRL, I used to love watching it growing up. Can’t wait to celebrate with my loves in Times Square. Might have some surprises too…”
“Only one artist has the power to turn the lights back on at 1515 Broadway in the iconic TRL studios, and that’s Ariana Grande. The transformation to ‘Total Ariana Live’ represents her one-of-a-kind star power combined with MTV’s immense multimedia platform, setting the stage for the ultimate global partnership.” – Charlie Walk, EVP, Republic Records.
Surrounded by a live studio audience, Ariana and Sway will discuss her highly-anticipated sophomore album and play fun music themed games that will put her musical skills and knowledge to the test. Additionally, it’s no secret that Ariana is big hip-hop fan, so MTV will test both her song knowledge and vocal ability in a game called “Hip Hop Mix Up.” Each round, she will spin two giant wheels: one with song title and one in vocal styles (like Country or Valley Girl) where will then have to sing the song in the chosen style.
