"I'm so f***ing emo and grateful. Wanna hug u all immediately."

Ariana Grande is pretty excited about the upcoming release of her Sweetener album (Aug. 17). Strike that, she is freaking the funk out. "fuck. just ran thru the whole album w my band (and singers hehe) for the first time and i'm..... so fucking emo and grateful. wanna hug u all immediately," the singer tweeted early Tuesday morning (Aug. 7). "bein able to sing this music/ this whole journey w y'all is some of the most magical, special shit in the universe," she added.   

Not only is she "eternally grateful" for the support of her Arianators, she's also planning to give them a very special night on Tuesday with what she's dubbed the "Sweetener Slumberparty" in Los Angeles.     

The Slumber Party was announced on Monday night (Aug. 6) by syndicated radio host Zach Sang, who tweeted, "beautiful humans! retweet if you wanna come to a #sweetenerslumberparty with @arianagrande tmrw night in LA. must be a member of her fan club."

Promising that "there will be popcorn," Grande said the party is just the "first surprise" she has in store.

Oh, and then this happened. The Late Late Show host James Corden tweeted a picture of the "No Tears Left to Cry" and "God is a Woman" lyrics with the tease "learning these," to which Ari replied "sick what for." No, seriously, what for?
