Ariana Grande: former TV star, platinum-selling pop singer… and now peace negotiator? The 25-year-old called for a ceasefire between Kanye West and Drake so fans could focus on her and Miley Cyrus’ new music.
“Guys, i know there are grown men arguing online rn but miley and i dropping our beautiful, new songs tonight,” Grande tweeted on Thursday, December 13, referencing her new single “Imagine” and Cyrus’ collaboration with Mark Ronson and Sean Ono Lennon on a new version of “Happy Xmas (War Is Over).”
Grande didn’t call out West and Drake by name but added, “If y’all could please jus behave for just like a few hours so the girls can shine that’d be so sick thank u.”
The “Thank U, Next” singer’s tweet came as West posted a lengthy Twitter diatribe, accusing Drake of threatening him. Kim Kardashian also waded into the feud, issuing a stern warning to the “God’s Plan” rapper and telling him there would be no Drake without her husband.
Cyrus, 26, retweeted Grande’s message adding a caption that referenced both pop stars’ music. “Didn’t they hear the news?!” she wrote. “War IS over! Thank you, next!”
Grande replied: “Period.”
“A lot of this album mourns failed yet important beautiful relationships in my life (as well as celebrates growth / exploring new independence),” she wrote in her Instagram Stories on Tuesday, December 11. “But for those of you asking about imagine: i would say if ‘thank u, next’ = acceptance… ‘imagine’ = denial. hope that makes sense.”
