Well, that would certainly be a bold new look for Ariana Grande, pop singer sensation, and it would definitely stand out in a crowd.

Ariana Grande has one more thing to thank her exes for. Davidson added flame to the fire when he jokingly proposed to musical guest Maggie Rogers during an "SNL" promo for the October 13 episode.

Has everyone taken a peek at these celebratory morsels of pride (and gratitude, let's not forget) dispensed out into cyberspace by way of Grande's Twitter account? He might not have known that "thank u, next" was the title of a song, but he is aware of who Grande is.

The 25-year-old singer has been left heartbroken recently after battling the loss of her ex-boyfriend Mac Miller, who passed away in September, and breaking off her engagement with Pete Davidson - whom she began dating in May and got engaged to in June - the following month. However, Grande doesn't insult or saying mean about any of them.

The most touching moment of the song is when Grande sings, "wish I could say thank you to Malcolm / 'Cause he was an angel".

The instantly catchy chorus propels the song, with the titular lyrics "thank u, next" repeated over again until Grande sings the powerful words, "I'm so f*ckin' grateful for my ex".

Before she released her new single Thank U, Next, she let two former flames - Big Sean and Ricky Alvarez - hear it in advance. In spite of the personal difficulties these last few months have thrown at her, it seems like she's doing her best to rise above the madness - anddiscover previously uncharted professional successes in the meanwhile.
