Ariana Grande Talks About Her Dark Night Of The Soul: 'I Was So Disgusted With Myself'

We need to hear from you.
Today during our spring member drive, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

It's been a long slog, and we're on Day 4 of Ariana Grande's donut-licking, America-hating, obesity-shaming scandal.

Last night Grande released an apology for licking someone else's donuts at a Lake Elsinore shop, for saying she hates America and also for releasing a rant about childhood obesity instead of an apology after the fact. She says that she's actually proud of the progressive steps America has taken in recent months, and that she's really, really embarrassed:

Seeing a video of yourself behaving poorly that you have no idea was taken is such a rude awakening that it's like you don't know what to do. I am so disgusted with myself. I shoved my face in a pillow, and I wanted to disappear. But instead of that, I'm going to come forward and own up to what I did and take responsibility and say, um, I'm sorry.

We hope to god this is the final word on donut licking-gate:
