Ariana Grande is one lucky chick because every time she takes an L somehow it always works out for her. Most folks get bad tattoos and then spend the rest of their lives doing a nervous chuckle trying to explain why they have the Lucky Charms logo above their right titty (answer: because they’ve got magically delicious boobs? At least, that’s what I tell people.) Ariana got a really bad barbecue themed tattoo last week and was subsequently roasted (pun intended) on social media. But that pain could be instantly turned into profit now since a tattoo removal company wants to use her as their spokesperson.
According to TMZ, a company named LaserAway reached out to Ariana and her manager Scooter Braun about paying her $1.5 million to remove that terrible tattoo in a video for a viral social media campaign and all she would have to do afterwards is add a few posts to her own social media shouting them out once a month for a year. In case you forgot, this is what that mess looks like currently:

At first, Ariana remained silent so Scooter responded to their request.
“I can’t speak for Ariana as we have not received this letter, however, if they’re willing to send me the offer, I’m sure I’d be happy to get a tattoo and then remove it real quick … for $1.5 mil. Hopefully, we can make this deal before her album comes out next week — shameless plug.”
Personally, I would have taken that check and kept it moving but you all know Ariana isn’t the brightest bulb in the box. She always does stupid shit then when she has a chance to redeem herself she gets all millennial with her responses. First, she tweeted this.

Oh Ari, you beautiful BBQ branded fool. GET THAT CHECK! Because you’re about three to five years out from your career being over so you better start stacking your money now before you’re forced to do reality TV with your brother Frankie. And of course, since this is Ariana we’re talking about, she didn’t just stop there. Us Weekly reports that she posted a series of since-deleted tweets where she addressed the tattoo fiasco first then somehow ended up getting all in her feelings with topics nobody even cares about.
Responding to a fan on Saturday, Grande explained, that she “went back and got [the tattoo] fixed with the help of my tutor to be more accurate. i can’t read or write kanji obviously. what do you want me to do? it was done out of love and appreciation. What do you want me to say?”
She followed it up with, “u know how many people make this mistake and DON’T care just cause they like how it looks? Bruh…. i care soooo much. what would u like me to do or say? forreal.”
In a third comment Grande wrote, “i have crippling anxiety lol. i don’t like hurtin ppl. people on this app really don’t know how to be forgiving or gentle when someone has made an innocent mistake. no one considers feelings other than their own. it’s very pointless. ion even know why i’m talking ab this anymore.”
She then addressed accusations of cultural appropriation, writing, “there is a difference between appropriation and appreciation. my japanese fans were always excited when i wrote in japanese or wore japanese sayings on my clothing. however, all of the merch with japanese on it was taken down from my site not that anyone cared to notice.”
You see, she’s spending all of this time explaining her tattoo when she could have driven down to LaserAway, made this deal and came home $1.5 million richer. And she seems like the type if chick that will keep that tattoo for the rest of her life and say something like “I keep it to remind myself of the mistakes of my youth“. A check can mind you of that as well Ariana, and it looks a hell of a lot better in your bank account than a silly misspelled tattoo. But whatever, No ragrets, right?
