Ariana Grande is indisputably one of the most influential pop stars in the world at the moment, while her latest single, '7 Rings,' caused pandemonium on the internet when it dropped and even got Soulja Boy's attention. Still riding high off that momentum, Ariana reportedly got a Japanese tattoo to celebrate her hit record, with Japanese character symbols that she thought translated to '7 Rings.'
To her credit, the two symbols do in fact mean "Seven" and "Rings" when read separately, however, when combined they translate to "small charcoal grill." Interestingly enough, Ariana apparently got this detail correct in the song's music video.
Nonetheless, you know what the Internet does whenever anyone makes a mistake, while this time around it could be surmised that a few laughs at her expense might be relatively appropriate. All the same, Ariana took to Twitter to come clean about her error, writing in a since-deleted tweet: "I left out "つの指" which should have gone in between. It hurt like f**k n still looks tight. I wouldn't have lasted one more symbol lmao. But this spot also peels a ton and won't last so if I miss it enough I'll suffer thru the whole thing next time."
She later added ""Also.... huge fan of tiny bbq grills," although neither of the above tweets can still be seen on her page. All the same, you know the Internet will have fun with this for at least another 24 hours, while her 144 million Instagram followers will be sure to come to her defense.
