Why Ariana Grande Is Terrifying

Her Obsessive Fans
So who's getting attracted to the cult of Grande's music? What sort of folks are bumping her bubbly missives seemingly about the trials of love and independence? A week before her debut album dropped, someone created fake fan Twitter and sent dramatic #suicide tweets. That's like the most evil thing ever.

Her Bizarre Public Behavior

Ariana may have nothing to say, but her major television appearances are a study in bonkers public behavior. Disinhibition is one of the official traits of sociopathy, and despite her PR team's best efforts, Ariana cannot be inhibited. She goes on Ellen and makes uncomfortable jokes about underwear in a problematic accent. She takes over Total Request Live and makes mincemeat of the censors. She goes on the Today and makes Matt Lauer look like a pathetic, pandering creep. She does what she wants, and she will not be stopped. The (Alleged) Smoking Gun

Finally, in mid-September, reliable news source NY Daily News published a story stating that Ariana left a fan-clogged radio station and declared, "I hope they all fucking die" as she stepped into the elevator. This is, like, literal (alleged) proof.

Forget ebola, ISIS and zombie apocalypses. There's something far more terrifying about Ariana Grande.
