United States President Barack Obama has got one less problem without ... well, he doesn't really. Guy has problems coming out the ears these days.

The world is a friggin' mess, and whatever you think of him politically, he could use a little relief from the 99-plus problems he encounters on a daily basis.

Perhaps the latest lip dub clip from YouTube genius Baracksdubs, in which he covers Ariana Grande's "Problem," will serve as inspiration. Check it out:

The spliced-together video, in keeping with previous Obama lip dub classics, features rapid-fire clips of the POTUS speaking the words to the hit single.

Much like Obama singing "Fancy" by Iggy Azalea, it's a lot easier to understand the lyrics in his near-perfect diction than in the actual song. Ironic.

Iggy, of course, lends her rap stylings to "Problem," but Obama doesn't get to her verse, sadly. Still, this joins a growing list of Barack dub winners.

Pitbull and Kesha's "Timber," Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe," Daft Punk's "Get Lucky" and many others have been sung by the Prez in recent years.

Check out lots more lip dub gems after the jump:

Is there bad blood between Jennette McCurdy and Ariana Grande? Following the cancelation of Sam & Cat by Nickelodeon, rumors of a rift persist.

It's unclear if the leak of racy Jennette McCurdy photos, and/or the actress' reported salary dispute with the network, led to the popular show's ouster.

However, some feel that Jennette is throwing shade at her co-star, whose music career has skyrocketed this summer, since the axe fell on Sam & Cat.

This speculation was fueled by Jennette’s new web series What’s Next For Sarah? In it, McCurdy’s character is in therapy after her show was canceled.

Also, her recent relationship ended, as did McCurdy's romance with Andre Drummond. Think that sounds like art imitating life? You are far from aline.

Sarah's therapist recommends lots of therapy for the star, even if her case is “pretty hopeless” ... Sarah is also encouraged to try juicing, which she does.

Ariana Grande covers the new issue of Billboard magazine, and she says she's living a double life. Because she's totally dark, deranged and sardonic!

"There was a stage, when I was 3 or 4, where my mom thought I might grow up to be a serial killer," she tells the magazine in a wide-ranging interview.

"For my fifth birthday party we had a Jaws theme and all my friends left crying. I mean, I still am that way. But when I was little it was more concerning."

Calling herself "dark and deranged," she "always wanted to have face paint on or be wearing a Freddy Krueger mask ... I would carry a hockey stick around."

"I was like a mini-Helena Bonham Carter." Also a hypoglycemic one, which added to it: "When I was little, I would turn into the Tasmanian devil."

Not the first picture of her you have right now, is it?

As we reported earlier this week, Ariana Grande began Big Sean are dating shortly after both were involved in high-profile breakups.

Now it seems that the longtime "friends" and musical collaborators may have kicked off their romance while they were both still in relationships.

Sean's ex Naya Rivera married Ryan Dorsey last month (on the same day she was supposed to marry Sean), but sources say she's still devastated.

Naya reportedly can't get over the fact that Sean and Ariana are in a relationship, and she's now convinced that the rapper cheated on her with Ariana.

"It's her worst nightmare because she was always sure that Sean was cheating on her with Ariana," says an insider close to Naya. "They fought about that a lot."

"Sean would tell her she was crazy and jealous. He swore to her that Ariana was just a friend. He even said she was like a little sister."

Naya, however, isn't buying his lines and "feels like this is proof that she was right all along and Sean was hooking up with Ariana."

While Ariana Grande and Big Sean may or may not be dating, they're definitely collaborating on a single from her new album, and it's a good one.

The rapper, who merely whispered in the background on Ariana’s smash hit “Problem,” gets a full verse in the singer’s latest release, “Best Mistake" ...

Ariana’s most recent songs such as "Problem," "Break Free" and “Bang Bang,” are up-tempo and energetic, but “Best Mistake” is more of a slow jam.

With its gentle, yet intense piano and her strong, but mellow vocals, critics have called it the most mature track of the young songbird's career.

Grande's vocals have drawn comparisons to Mariah Carey, and unlike her past few singles, you can see here why some people have made that leap.

Her powerful, understated stylings are nicely complimented by Sean's laid back approach to rhyming, and the chemistry on "Best Mistake" is palpable.

Wonder why that might be ...

According to a new report, can we remove a question mark from our recent story about Ariana Grande and Big Sean.

YES, an insider tells E! News, these two are definitely dating.

"They have been friends since they made [Problem] together," the source says. "They have been spending more time together and recently have been getting very close."

Grande and Sean, of course, were both involved in recent high-profile break-ups.

Earlier this month, Ariana ended things with Jai Brooks because he wasn't supportive enough of her; Big Sean, meanwhile, split from Glee star Naya Rivera (who has since gotten married!) a few months ago admits rumors of infidelity.

It hasn't been a great week for love in Hollywood.

Ariana Grande split from Jai Brooks because he wasn't supportive of her. Ramona Singer ended her marriage because her husband Mario was unfaithful.

Joe Jonas stopped giving it to Blanda Eggenschwiler. Chris Brown and Karrueche Tran ... we don't know what is going on there. But it appears to be over.

But at least all of the above take solace in the following: they aren't alone. Far from it, in fact, as a number of high-profile romances have already met their demise in 2014. 

We're not taking sides. We're not judging the basis for these break-ups. We're just running down the celebrities who have found themselves single so far this year:

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?

Ariana Grande broke up with Jai Brooks yesterday in a surprise move that many have blamed on the Aussie comedian's immaturity and inability to provide emotional support following the death of Grande's grandfather. 

Big Sean and Naya Rivera ended their engagement back in April, and many attributed the split to the fact that...well, Naya's a little crazy. (She ended up marrying a different dude on the same day she was supposed to marry Sean.)

But what if Ariana and Sean had different motivations for dumping their exes? Motivations like...each other?

The 20-year-old pop star and 26-year-old rapper met while recording Ariana's hit "Problem" (Sean is the one whispering the chorus). 

Ariana and Sean were spotted on a movie date in Florida last night and witnesses say the pair made out for the entirety of the flick. It's all led to speculation that they're just now going public because they're finally both single.

It is once again all over for Ariana Grande and Jai Brooks.

According to an Us Weekly insider, the roller coaster problem has called it quits for the second time, about one year after their first break-up.

"It has not been an easy few months," says the tabloid source. "Jai just wasn’t as supportive as he could have been."

As recently as a month ago, Grande and Brooks kissed on Instagram.

However, Nickelodeon subsequently canceled Grande's series, Sam & Cat, and then tragedy struck the artist’s family when her grandfather passed away.
