Ariana Grande: 'I'm repulsed by Santa'

Songstress Ariana Grande has revealed that her Christmas single 'Santa Tell Me' is about the darker side of the holiday because she sees 'lots of heartbreak' around the festive period each year. 

She recently told the Daily Mail newspaper that the song was inspired by the pain people often feel at Christmas, which she has experienced and seen first hand:

"I'm repulsed by Santa. My song might sound cheerful but it's really quite sardonic and depressing. I'm like saying, "Santa, what is your deal, bro?" I've had my heart broken multiple times around this time of year. I feel although it's one of the most cheerful times of the year, I see tons of heartbreak and they make movies about it. It's like a (Wham!) Last Christmas vibe."

Her brother Frankie, meanwhile, hinted that he was planning on getting her a live present this year: "I’ve been recently thinking that I’m going to rescue an animal in her name — for the girl who has everything, I give you love, like ‘NSYNC said,” Frankie explained. “[Animal rescue] is something really passionate, something really close to her. Last year, I got her a lot of animal-friendly products, not-tested-on-animal stuff. This year she inspired me by rescuing a cow so maybe you just gave me an idea so now I’m going to rescue a cow.”
