Ariana Grande Gives Fans A Huge Update On Her Future In Music

The “7 Rings” hitmaker released her highly-anticipated seventh album, “Eternal Sunshine,” on Friday, with its titular song making waves on social media. As stated, the track's lyrics featured cryptic lines about getting played by a cheating lover whose lies drove Grande crazy.

The seemingly accusatory lines read: “I don't care what people say. We both know I couldn't change you. I guess you could say the same. Can't rearrange truth. I've never seen someone lie like you do. So much, even you start to think it's true.”

The Grammy winner added: “So now we play our separate scenes. Now, she's in my bed, layin' on your chest. Now I'm in my head, wonderin' how it ends.” The suspicions about these lyrics being linked to her relationship with Gomez continued in the chorus, with Grande singing:

“I'll be the first to say, ‘I'm sorry.’ Now you got me feelin' sorry. I showed you all my demons, all my lies. Yet you played me like Atari. Now it's like I'm lookin' in the mirror. Hope you feel alright when you're in her. I found a good boy, and he's on my side. You're just my eternal sunshine.”

The “good boy” by Grande's side seemingly referred to her new beau, Ethan Slater, whom she began dating after separating from Gomez. At the time, she faced backlash for being a homewrecker over the timing of her relationship with Slater's divorce.

Dalton Gomez Was Spotted Kissing An Actress Following His Divorce

Last October, Gomez raised eyebrows shortly after the finalization of his divorce from Grande. He was spotted locking lips with the actress Maika Monroe, creating speculations about whether the pair got together before his split from the “Positions” singer was confirmed.

The new couple was spotted inside Jumbo’s Clown Room  — a famous bikini bar room in Los Angeles — and Gomez couldn’t keep his hands to himself as he packed on the PDA with Monroe. Eyewitnesses claimed the lovers didn't try to hide their love from the public and proudly flaunted their union.

They reportedly looked around, presumably checking their surroundings, before resuming their intense smooching as though they were the only ones in the room. The intense make-out session happened days after Gomez and Grande legally became single.

The pair swiftly settled their divorce thanks to an ironclad prenup that saw Gomez leaving with a whopping $1,250,000 up-front payment and zero spousal support. He was also given half of the net proceeds from selling their home in Los Angeles, and Grande covered his legal costs.

According to the insider, the singer's friends were worried because she had a history of falling “hard and fast,” and they didn't want her to experience another heartbreak. In the informant's words:

“That’s who she is. Everyone is telling her to slow down before she makes another mistake — but she is that girl who can never stay single for long.”

Grande and Slater reportedly began their relationship in July 2023 while collaborating on the “Wicked” film adaptation. Despite being in the early phase of their romance, insiders claimed that the actor had moved into the singer's multimillion-dollar apartment.
