Ariana Grande. A name I don’t like to be typing into my computer, but alas, here I am. This time I’m here to review none other than her Instagram account. Spoiler alert: I hate it. As one of her 143 million followers, I get to see her daily posts pop up on my timeline. Just let me explain something real quick before I start. I follow her, yes, but this does not mean in any way that I want to see her posts. I would rather not have to look at pictures of her everyday, but for this article to be properly written, I had to keep myself updated on the account.
When first looking at her account, I noticed that her profile picture is just black. I have a lot of questions, but no answers. Then I noticed that she has posted 3,847 times as of January 21, 2019. This is absolutely insane. It would take me days to go through all of her posts and that is definitely not what I would want to spend my time doing.
Next comes her bio which reads “thank u, next.” When looking at someone’s instagram I do not need a constant reminder of a song that I absolutely hate. Don’t even get me started on the link she also includes to her most recent single “7 Rings.” Long story short, that song angers me.
Her Instagram, however, doesn’t necessarily anger me. It just bothers me. There are daily posts of her from the music video to “7 Rings” in which she is either wearing diamond dog ears or has an excessively long ponytail. As a girl I know that ponytails can be extremely painful, and I just want to know how she got around without anyone stepping ad pulling on it.
I have also come to notice that quite a few of her posts are rotated either to the side or completely upside down. I do not like this. If you are going to post a picture on Instagram, why can’t it just be regularly oriented? I do not need to be straining my neck in order to see this girl’s posts that I really would rather not have to look at in the first place. Thanks for that, Jaden.
There is actually one thing that I like about her account: the fact that she doesn’t post sponsored pictures or ads from what I can see of her recent activity. I absolutely hate when celebrities post promotions for products such as FitTea.
That stuff cannot be good for you; and the fact that celebrities, those who a lot of people look up to, promote companies and products like that is infuriating. I can’t believe I am actually about to say this, but Ms. Grande has actually gained a little bit of my respect after I noticed that.
Let’s not get too out of hand here though. Another of the things that I dislike about Ms. Grande’s Instagram account is that many of her pictures look like they’re blurred.
It gives the photos a vintage vibe to them which I don’t necessarily dislike, but the fact that every single picture looks like this aggravates me. Once in a while to mix up the feed is perfectly alright, but Ms. Grande, you really need to shake things up a bit.
To sum it all up, I would rather never have to look through Ms. Grande’s Instagram account for more than five seconds ever again, and I don’t plan on doing so.
