Ariana Grande's '7 Rings' Unapologetically Preaches Materialism And We Are So Here For It

"7 Rings" is now one of our favorite things.

Ariana Grande

On Friday, Ariana Grande released her single "7 Rings." Influenced by "My Favorite Things" from the Broadway musical "The Sound of Music," Grande's song talks about her favorite things: diamonds, ATM machines, and her hair — girl, same. This broadway, hip-hop, pop-infused single also dropped with a music video on YouTube, overwhelming fans with excitement.

Grande, who previously released two other songs, "thank u, next" and "imagine," said she wrote this song shortly after her split with Pete Davidson. After a trip with her girls to Tiffany's where she bought them jewelry and got drunk off of champagne, Grande said on Twitter, she just had to write a song about her day with her friends.

In the song, Grande sings about luxurious material items and how much they make her happy. She even puts a price on happiness, "Happiness is the same price as red bottoms." But her song isn't necessarily about being greedy with items. Grande also sings about buying things with her friends and, in the music video, she's seen partying with her girls and having a good time.

"7 Rings" takes treat yourself to a whole new level.

Many fans are loving the new song and applaud Grande for her successful comeback after such a rough 2018. Grande did not let the past defeat her. Like she says, "Been through some bad shit, I should be a sad bitch. Who would have thought it turn me to a savage."

Other fans are heading to Twitter to make light-hearted jokes about Grande's latest hit. Since the song preaches to treat-yourself by spending money, people are joking about spending all their money after listening to the song or how they feel rich even if their bank account says otherwise.

The theme of materialism in "7 Rings" isn't meant to be taken seriously, nor is it meant to make fun of people with low incomes. It's just a fun song that revolves around a girl's obsession with buying things for her friends and herself. So, the next time you find yourself at a mall, make sure to listen to "7 Rings" and treat-yourself!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
