When songbird Ariana Grande released her new song “Break Free,” a lot of attention was paid to its Star Wars inspired lyric video, as well as its EDM influences.
It also raised eyebrows with its lyrics, which make no damn sense.
Don't blame Ariana, though, for gems like “Now that I’ve become who I really are” and “I only wanna die alive,” because producer Max Martin made her do it.
“I fought him on it the whole time,” Grande says. “‘I am not going to sing a grammatically incorrect lyric, help me, God!’ Max was like, ‘It’s funny - just do it!'"
Begrudgingly, she agreed, but Grande, whose My Everything album drops this month, says "I know it’s funny, but grammatically incorrect things make me cringe.”
“I was like, whatever, let’s do it and have some fun ... I need to shake it off and let it go and be a little less rigid and old. I’m like 90. I need to not be that old!”
As for the new song's message, grammar issues aside?
"It means life is so short ... there’s no reason to not enjoy it and there’s no reason you should be anything but yourself,” she says. “Have fun, be spontaneous and let go."
"It’s O.K. to cut off whatever you feel is holding you back.”
In her case, that would be unnecessarily nonsensical lyrics, but don't let that hold you back from scrolling through the Ariana Grande photos below:
