Ariana Grande admits that clear pronunciation isn’t exactly her strong suit in her recent set of promo videos for the upcoming episode of Saturday Night Live, where Grande will serve as both the show’s host and performer.
During the short clips, which she acts in alongside SNL writer and cast member Taran Killam, Grande comments on Killam’s incorrect interpretation of the lyrics to her hit single “Problem,” saying, “Are you saying ‘prom production’? I don’t blame you, enunciation isn’t my forte but it actually is like the title, ‘One less problem without you. Problem without ya. Or you.’”
Ariana will take the stage during this Saturday’s (March 12) episode of SNL, where she’ll perform her new single “Dangerous Woman” as well as another track from her upcoming album (also titled Dangerous Woman) called “Be Alright.”
The “Problem” singer first announced the appearance last month with a voice message posted to her new website.
“I’m having a minor heart attack, and by minor I mean a major one,” she said. “I can’t even.”
“A really long time ago, I was convinced that it was gonna be called Moonlight because it’s one of my favorite songs that we did for the album,” she told Jimmy Kimmel in an interview earlier this year. “Now there’s this other song that’s sort of thrown me for a whirlwind and I love it so much and it’s just sort of changed everything.”
Be sure to tune in to Ariana’s Saturday Night Live performance when it airs on March 12 at 11:30PM EST.
