My Everything

My Everything is the 2nd album from Ariana Grande who apparently is the artist that no one knows according to every Big Brother blog I read. (Friends and I have come to the conclusion that everyone knows her song if they hear it – they just don’t realize that it is her.  And if you can’t recognize the song? I hate to say it … but you’re old.)

I don’t know if I’ve listened to Ariana’s first album in its entirety or not, but this one is a bit different than what I was expecting from her considering what I had heard her perform when I saw her live in 2011. (Yeah, I’ve known about her for a while, but I can’t take the credit. We only went because Action Item was opening.)  I do enjoy this album but it’s not quite my style, I guess you could say.  It seems to lean a bit more towards hip hop (I guess?) than I do.

My only complaint with Ariana is that I can never understand what she is singing! Enunciate, girl!  Although I did read an article about Break Free having a couple of lines that were grammatically incorrect. (“Now that I’ve become who I really are”) Ariana fought the song writer on it and LOST.  Is it really that big of a deal to sing AM instead of ARE? It’s not like the syllables are different! Although it WAS written by Max Martin who has a freaking ton of hit singles that he’s written out there, so I guess he knows what he is doing, but is it really too much to ask to try a little bit harder to be grammatically correct?  (ps since I’ve been debating a 6 degrees of Hanson on my CD reviews – Ariana can be linked to Hanson through Max Martin who co wrote Last Friday Night for Katy Perry – Hanson was in the video and he also wrote for Marion Raven – Zac’s ex-girlfriend.)
