Ariana Grande Gets Real & Calls Out Her OWN Merch as “Trash”
One T-shirt released as part of Ariana Grande‘s new Sweetener merch is being BLASTED by fans on social media, and once you see it, you’ll completely understand why….

The shirt’s very basic and cheap-looking design features an ironed-on photo of Ari on a plain white T-shirt. As one fan perfectly put it, “This looks like those shirts people sell outside of concerts.”
But fans who are upset with the lazy T-shirt design needn’t worry, because Ari herself agrees with them that this particular merch is trash. She replied to one fan’s complaint, “yea this looks wild and i can’t believe they sent it out. i’m on it. so f**kin sorry. the other merch looks perfect in person. i don’t wear t shirts so i didn’t have them send me this one first i’m so so sorry. i’ll approve everything in person from now on. this is trash. my bad.”

It’s understandable that Ari didn’t get a chance to approve ALL of her merchandise in person, as she’s one of the busiest pop stars in existence these days. She recently released new singles and collabs with Troye Sivan and Nicki Minaj, moved into a new apartment with her fiance Pete Davidson, AND she’s gearing up to drop her fourth studio album, Sweetener, in just a couple of weeks.
That being said, we’re a little taken-aback over the whole “she doesn’t wear t-shirts” part of Ari’s apology — like, she never wears t-shirts, or she rarely wears them? We need answers, because how?!
Of course, whatever Ari’s personal relationship with T-shirts are these days, we’re just glad that she cares about her fans and their happiness so much, that she’s willing to personally address and take care of this issue.
