How do you say, “Please back up because you’re stepping on Ariana Grande’s hair” in French?
The 20-year-old international sensation definitely needed a translator when she arrived at her hotel in Paris, where a mob of fans awaited the star, armed to the teeth with homemade signs and overwhelming amounts of love. So many people crowded around the petite songstress (who’s just five feet tall) that we can barely see her in the video!
Thanks to her helpful entourage, Ariana did eventually make it through the crowd to arrive safe and sound in her hotel. Seemingly unfazed by all the attention, the “Popular Song” singer then turned to face the adoring masses and give them a wave — while remaining safely on the other side of the hotel’s windows, of course.
“I’m okay,” Ariana tells one member of her crew before taking a video of the commotion. Her fans roar at the chance to be forever preserved in Ariana Grande’s phone. Meanwhile, three men brace themselves in the hotel’s front door to keep the The Ariana Army back.
Later, upstairs, Ariana just can’t help herself from sneaking a final peek at her French amis. She sticks her head out the window, gives a wave, and the crowd roars.
Talk about a warm welcome.
