Ariana Grande's debut performance of "thank u, next", her breakup anthem that succeeds at being both petty and empowering, was a pretty fine reflection of her life of late.

Ariana Grande performed her latest single "thank u, next" for the first time on Ellen and her "First Wives Club" dance routine saw her nearly fall down.

The trio's choreography channeled Goldie Hawn, Bette Midler and Diane Keaton's performance of "You Don't Own Me" in the 1996 movie, which follows a trio of divorcées seeking revenge on their ex-husbands.

As for the performance, it was definitely live as she almost took a faceplant trying to step down from a chair on the wedding reception-inspired set.

Adding fuel to the fire, the biography of Zandhr on Spotify appeared in the upside down font which Ariana Grande has used on her most recent album campaign. "Not long after, she laughed as she sang, "'Cause her name is Ari / And I'm so good with that". However, the singer's rep has now told ET Canada the release had nothing to do with the "One Last Time" hitmaker.

MI becomes first Midwest state to legalize recreational marijuana
In 2008, 63 percent of MI voters approved medical marijuana, making it the 13th state to legalize medical cannabis. The Yes on 3 campaign says the state is the first "to successfully defend transgender rights by popular vote".


But, just as the song says, Grande knows how to handle the pain.

The lyrics caused the singer to get a bit choked up, recalling her parents' relationship drama, but once again, she managed to make it through, to a strong finish, which featured her busting out some dance moves before exiting up the stairs of the studio. We all love you. In the song she calls him an "angel".

In Your Hands is thought to be the collaboration between Ariana Grande and Diplo which was teased in 2016.
