Ariana Grande Shares ‘Scream Queens’ BTS, Says She’ll Be Back
Did you watch the premiere of Scream Queens last night? If so, you were treated to two hours of razor-sharp dialogue and saw the Red Devil's equally sharp knife at work. You were also blessed with Ariana Grande's all-too-brief screen time as Chanel No. 2, the doe-eyed sidekick to Emma Roberts' Chanel Oberlin. The Ari moments were few and far between in the pilot, but her big scene was one of the best of the episode: If you haven't seen it, let's just say she gets into the worst texting fight ever.
But fear not! You will see more of Chanel No. 2 — Scream Queens co-creator and director Ryan Murphy promised.
PHEW. Ariana also shared some behind-the-scenes moments from her shoot, including one of her with her onscreen nemesis, the Red Devil. Or "bae," as she jokes in the caption.
Next she shared a clip of one of her between-takes pastimes, fiddling with a helium-voice app. "Hey, I'm in my dressing room on set at Scream Queens," she sings in a pitched-up tone. "And there's blood all over my face, but it kind of looks like sh---t!" she finishes, before breaking into laughter. Ryan Murphy was not lying in his recent V Magazine interview with Ariana, she truly does "curse like a sailor."
In true "never met a sideways-rotated post I didn't like" Ariana Grande fashion, she then posted a second helium-voiced clip. And it's the very best one, because she dives into Nicki Minaj's "Bang Bang" verse. You haven't lived until you've heard "If he hangin' we bangin', phone rangin', he slangin'" in the style of Alvin and the Chipmunks.
Scream Queens returns next Tuesday September 29 at its regular time, 9/8c, on Fox. Can't wait until then? Watch Ariana discuss her character below.
