arianagrande

President Obama and the First Lady have taken a real liking towards Ariana Grande because this is the second time she makes her way to The White House. Rocking the south lawn at this year’s Easter Egg Roll, she gives kids and parents in attendance an Easter performance of select tracks from her debut album Yours Truly, including the radio friendly “Right There” with special guest Big Sean.

Out of curiosity, I wonder what the parents thought during Mac Miller’s verse on “The Way” when he said “You’re a princess to the public, but a freak when it’s time.”
