The second episode of Ariana Grande’s Dangerous Woman Diaries YouTube docuseries was released to non-subscribers on Thursday (Dec. 6) -- just in time for Grande's Billboard Woman of the Year coronation.
The new episode, titled “Here’s the Gag,” follows Grande as she kicks off her Dangerous Woman Tour. In a voice-over, Grande reveals how the YouTube docuseries, which she originally had no intention of creating, came to be. After returning home from tour, Grande and her music director, Alfredo Flores, realized just how much “dope” footage they had and wanted to commemorate the tour for fans. “We wanted to bring you as closely into our world as possible,” Grande says, speaking directly to her fans.
“Here’s the Gag” also delves into Grande’s relationship with twins Brian and Scott Nicholson, her backup dancers and members of her tight-knit inner circle. Grande met Brian and Scott when she was 17 years old when they auditioned for her. After their fateful meeting, Grande decided she could “never be without [them] ever again,” calling the twins “two of the most talented people on the face of the planet.” “As a human, as an artist, I’m incomplete without Brian and Scott,” the singer touchingly admitted.
