Ariana Grande honoured as Woman of the Year at the 2018 Billboard Women in Music

On December 6th, as Ariana Grande took the stage to accept the Woman of the Year award at this year’s Billboard Women In Music event, the 25-year-old singer followed up a sassy performance of “thank u, next” with a very Ariana-like quip: “Thank you so much for coming to my Quinceañera, I appreciate it.” Though it wasn’t Grande’s actual birthday, the rest of her speech served as sincere proof of the night’s biggest honor — whether she felt worthy of it or not.

After admitting that she felt “completely undeserving” of the Woman of the Year title, Grande went on to thank her team in a rather nervous fashion, suggesting that she’d forget everything she wanted to say because she was overwhelmed. But then something clicked as she began talking about the incredible year she’s had as an artist.

“I find it interesting that this has been one of the best years of my career and the worst of my life,” Grande said. “A lot of people would look at someone in my position right now as an artist that could be at her peak and think, ‘She’s really got her shit together, she’s really on it. She’s got it all.’ And I do, but as far as my personal life goes, I really have no idea what the fuck I’m doing.”

She laughed off her comment, but quickly followed up with a message of hope for her fans: “It’s been a very conflicting one, and I just want to say if you’re someone out there who has no idea what this next chapter is going to bring, you’re not alone in that.”

In true Ariana fashion, she quickly pulled it together and even threw in a silly remark (“I’m not going to cry, that’s really annoying,” she joked). Continuing her encouraging and heartfelt sentiment, she added, “I’m really looking forward to embracing whatever happens and whatever comes my way.”

As she wrapped up her speech, Grande shouted out her best friends Victoria Monet and Tayla Parx, with whom she made her highly anticipated (and teased) sweetener follow-up album. Even through the emotional moments and raw vulnerability, Grande held true to her “thank u, next” attitude as she welcomed what’s to come.

“I look forward to hopefully learning to give some of the love and forgiveness that I’ve given away so frivolously and easily to men in the past to myself, hopefully, this year,” she declared. “I have everything I’ve ever dreamt of having, and as of late I’ve discovered that it’s the things I’ve always had and the people I’ve always had that still make me the happiest.”

Ariana Grande performs “thank u, next” and “breathin” on The Ellen Show

On November 7th, Ariana Grande more than delivered during her elaborate Thank U, Next performance on The Ellen Show Wednesday. She also performed her 3rd single from Sweetener, breathin. She didn’t pull the idea for her fancy white setup out of the sky, though; rather, the stage, choreography and theme were inspired by a scene from the 1996 cult comedy The First Wives Club.

Starring Bette Midler, Goldie Hawn and Diane Keaton, The First Wives Club followed three divorced women out to get revenge on their husbands for leaving them for younger women. Grande’s Ellen display was drawn from the scene in which the trio broke out into “You Don’t Own Me,” which was originally sung by Lesley Gore in 1963 (and more recently popularized by Grace and G-Eazy in 2015).

Midler, Hawn and Keaton’s characters did dramatic arm-swinging dance moves while dressed in all white at a wedding reception. Grande — a longtime fan of the movie — mirrored this scene, doing her own moves beside two ladies against a set complete with flowers and cake.

During the middle of the song, Hawn jumped onto a chair at the reception — and since she almost stumbled after getting down, Billboard‘s 2018 Woman of the Year did the same.

The women in both videos concluded their musical numbers by throwing on their jackets and making the same gliding strides as they walked away.
