Whether she's licking donuts or doing spot-on impressions of other singers, Ariana Grande is always making headlines. Today, it's for the time she seemingly defied gravity on the cover of her 2014 album, My Everything.
Guys, it's crazy. She floats on a stool like a tiny, angelic-voiced nymph. Her position is inhuman and impossible to recreate, as is demonstrated by the good people of Twitter.
You have to see this. It's insane.
BuzzFeed's Jesse McLaren tried to achieve the ethereal Grande stool pose to no avail.
I've done the research and there's no way her ass is sitting on that stool. https://t.co/AIGNpcJn6G— Jesse McLaren (@Jesse McLaren)1508088445.0
More than 110,000 retweets and 335,000 likes later, a couple people sort of kind of did the pose.Sure, this guy's got the facial expression down pat, but he's not quite achieving that airy, half-stool slouch. Still, a noble effort.
While this guy got the height, he took up way too much of the stool.
@Slhut @McJesse hard to control for variables like stool size but i think it’s real https://t.co/gWMKgC5gvW— schmoyoho, accent on the whooo did this (@schmoyoho, accent on the whooo did this)1508201305.0
This person has a creative explanation...
@McJesse Actually, if you could see behind her the stool looks like this https://t.co/UQA48riHoG— Michael Benjamin (@Michael Benjamin)1508096018.0
Ariana Grande herself responded to the conspiracy, but not with any sort of comprehensive explanation...
