Ariana Grande Loses the Ponytail in Shocking New Photos (LOOK)

Everyone, put down your coffee and make sure you're sitting down for this news. Because! Ariana! Grande! Was seen! Ponytail-less! That's right, the songstress with a problem was spotted running around with her hair down and we can't even. Who let Ariana out of her ponytail? Is this allowed?

Ha! Kidding, this is so not important. The world will continue spinning if Miss Grande lets her hair down. So why are people talking about it, then? What's the fuss all about?


See, I was starting to think maybe Grande's signature look was part of her contract, along with the Mod-style mini-dresses and go-go boots. I admire the discipline! And I also suspect maybe her hair was so tightly pulled back in order to hold her brains in. You know, because she's so very young, still, and have her fontanelles even closed up yet?

But Ariana Grande herself articulated (see? The fontanelle-closing hairstyle is working ... ) why she so often sports a ponytail:

I had to bleach my hair and dye it red every other week for the first 4 years of playing Cat ... as one would assume, that completely destroyed my hair. I now wear a wig on Sam & Cat. My real hair is back to brown and I wear extensions, but I wear it in a ponytail because my actual hair is so broken that it looks absolutely ratchet and absurd when I let it down.

Well if there's anything I hate, it's when my hair looks both "ratchet" and absurd. So there you go -- the ponytail is a big wad o' extensions. (Grande is referring to her Nickelodeon show Sam & Cat.) But how did she pull off this look, then?

Oh yeah, new extensions. But hey, nice that she finally got a break from the pulled-back look. Either way, up or down, extensions or all her hair, we think she looks adorable.

Why do you think Ariana usually wears her hair in a ponytail? And which way do you think looks better?
