  • Ariana Grande seems to be one of few people who can say that the year 2020 has been good to them.
  • From reaching over 211 million followers on Instagram, to getting engaged to boyfriend Dalton Gomez, and now announcing the release of her Netflix concert film – we can’t keep up.
  • Hopefully the positions singer can continue her lucky streak into 2021. 

New on Netflix 

Ariana took to Instagram to announce the release of her new collaboration with Netflix – a Sweetener World Tour documentary called ‘Excuse me I love you.’ 

According to the film’s synopsis on Rotten Tomatoes, the documentary follows the Grammy-winning superstar on her sold out 2019 tour, “capturing the spectacular performances of the hits that have burned up the charts, as well as exclusive, never-before-seen footage of the internationally-beloved superstar at home and on the road with her dancers and band.”

Moreover, the film offers viewers an “exclusive peek at the many facets of the passionate, raw, and always real artist and provides backstage access to the pre-show rehearsals, iconic styling, and the intimate and emotional moments that are the reason for the special connection she has with her fans,” according to Rotten Tomatoes. 

Lucky and lovestruck 

Just this weekend, the 7-rings singer announced her engagement to her boyfriend of 11-months, Dalton Gomez in a series of photos. 

She captioned the series of photos, “forever n then some.”

Now, the 27-year-old has accumulated a whopping 11 million more in a mere three months. 

Whether it’s her musical talent, humour, beauty, or relationship with her fans that has led to the singer’s success this year, we’re not sure. All we know is that we are here for it.
