After making appearances all over the place and releasing one chart-topping song after another, Ariana Grande's much-awaited Honeymoon Tour is finally underway. (Arianators, rejoice!) During the singer’s stop in Chicago on Tuesday night, Ariana Grande surprised her Honeymoon Tour fan attendees with the first live performance of her new track "Adore" with Cashmere Cat. And here's something that sweetened the deal even further — the Arianators were treated to photo booth meet-and-greet. Now if this isn't evidence that she doesn't absolutely adore her fans, what else is there?
Well, actually there's plenty more to contradict those incessant rumors that peg Grande as an over-the-top, demanding diva who wants her fans to die. For the naysayers, it may be tempting to believe that Grande mistreats her fans, that is, if those who side-eye Grande’s innocent doe-eyed look and choose to buy into the belief that she could’ve been a serial killer, or that she prefers to be carried everywhere.
But why believe those absurd stories about someone who spends so much of her time spreading love and positivity to her followers? Contrary to the rumors, it doesn't take much to uncover proof that the singer's actually really kind and thoughtful to her fans.
Check out 7 of Ari's grandest gestures towards her Arianators:
