It's been a year of ups and downs for Ariana Grande, and the pop singer is artistically expressing the tumultuous year with the Christmas decorations in her New York apartment.

On Tuesday (Dec. 18), Grande's brother, Frankie Grande, shared an Instagram photo of himself sitting in front of a Christmas tree hanging upside down from a ceiling. "Waiting for Santa," he captioned the photo in a font that was also upside down.

Soon after, Ariana was spotted leaving her apartment building where paparazzi were waiting to ask her about the unusual Christmas tree placement. "Sometimes life be upside-down," she told a cameraman for TMZ.

The singer's minimalist holiday decorations also include a mantle decorated with garland, black candles, and hanging black stockings.

In addition to her recent engagement and breakup with comedian Pete Davidson, Grande's year also saw the loss of her ex-boyfriend Mac Miller, who died from an accidental drug overdose in September.
