Ariana Grande wants you to know that she's really, really, really sorry for licking those doughnuts. To prove just how remorseful she feels, the pop princess recorded a video from her laptop and posted it to YouTube to share with her fans.
Shot in black and white — that always makes everything seem a little more sincere, right? — the clip shows Grande with a slightly swollen jaw as she explained her sentiments of regret for her particularly gross actions.
"Hi, y'all. It's me. I'm free of my puffy cheeks. Please. I'm making this video from wisdom tooth recovery hell," she said. "But I just wanted to make a video to apologize again for the whole dougnut fiasco and craziness because I feel like the apology I posted, I was... I, like, kind of missed my opportunity to actually sincerely apologize and express how I was feeling because I was too busy preaching about my issues with the food industry, which is, like, not, I feel, like, relevant."
The first apology that she's referring to is her statement in which she attempted to explain her true intentions behind saying that she "hates America" and the food industry.
But the "Love Me Harder" songstress admits that she'd rather do damage control now before the entire situation goes away: "I was trying to get you to understand where I was coming from when I said what I said," she continued. "But that's not important. I'd rather just apologize and I feel like now's my chance before the whole thing blows over to say my sorry."
While the store clerk revealed that Grande was extremely rude during her visit to their Southern California establishment, the singer admits that seeing herself in that light was the wake up call she needed: "Seeing a video of yourself behaving poorly that you had no idea was taken is such a rude awakening," she said. "It's like you don't know what to do; I was so disgusted with myself, I wanted to shove my face in a pillow and just disappear. But instead of that, I'm going to come forward and own up to what I did and take responsibility and say I'm sorry."
We're sure that her Arianators will forgive her in no time. Meanwhile, the police may not be as forbearing, as they are currently investigating what is now considered the infamous "Ariana Grande doughnut-licking fiasco."
