Who is Ariana Grande's "Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I'm Bored" about? We looked into it
The music gods are blessing us in a major way come February 8th, because that’s when Ariana Grande’s new album, Thank U, Next, arrives. Grande revealed the full track list on January 22nd via Instagram, and Arianaters are currently attempting to decide what and—perhaps more importantly—who each track is about. And the final song on the album, called “Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored,” has the Twitterverse lighting up with theories. A number of fans speculate the track might be about Grande’s ex Big Sean, and it’s all due to a sneaky little clue in the Thank U, Next video.
In the scene where the singer is going through her “Burn Book,” eagle-eyed fans spotted some telling clues on Big Sean’s page, notably the heart around his name, and that Grande wrote that he’s “so cute, so sweet” and “could still get it.” In recent months, Sean has reportedly been dating singer Jhene Aiko, though some fans think they may have split…and that Grande might be hinting at a reconciliation.
Of course, Grande’s ex Davidson was also in a relationship shortly before he got together with the “Imagine” singer, with some fans thinking the new song might be about him.
We can’t wait to hear “Break Up With Your Girlfriend” when it finally drops on February 8th. We have a feeling it’s going to be a certified bop—no matter who it’s about.
