An Ariana Grande Documentary Is Being Released On YouTube

Dangerous Woman Diaries is gonna drop soon

As if Ariana Grande hasn't been busy enough. There's been the whole hype around 'thank u, next', the upcoming music video for said song which we're literally bursting with excitement for and even rumours of a new album.

Now, there's a documentary coming. On Tuesday (27 November), both Ariana and YouTube announced on social media that Ariana Grande: Dangerous Woman Diaries would be released on Thursday 29 November. 

Today, on Wednesday 28 November, the trailer dropped.

Naturally, people have a lot of questions: "Dangerous Woman", is it just about her old tour and album, not the new one Sweetner? How long is it? Is it a one off? What are we going to see? Will life ever be the same again? Etc etc.

Here's what we know so far:

What is it?

It's a four-part YouTube original docuseries which, according to YouTube, features "exclusive behind-the-scenes footage" which showcases "all of the brilliance - and all of the motions - as Grande and her creative collaborators brought to life some of the biggest moment of her career".

The Dangerous Woman Diaries have been in the works for a long time, the tour itself took place in 2017 and that's when Ariana would regularly share video clips and photos from the tour along with the hashtag #dangerouswomandiaries.

It's directed and largely filmed by Ari's friend and photographer Alfredo Flores, who has taken tons of official photos of the tour. He tweeted his excitement for the project when the news was announced on Tuesday, Ariana then called the documentary their "little baby" on her Instagram stories.

From the trailer, we can see Ariana and her friends larking about backstage and chilling at home during the tour, travelling on planes, rehearsing and then belting out some of her best loved songs on stage which leaves us with actual goosebumps.

"I wanna sing for you guys and I wanna share these experiences," Ariana shares in the trailer.

What can we expect from it?

According to a release from YouTube, the documentary includes concert performances of songs like 'One Last Time', 'Side to Side' and 'Into You' and never-before-seen highlights from the Dangerous Woman tour. 

Fans and followers of Ariana will know that it was during the Dangerous Woman tour when the tragic Manchester Arena terrorist attack happened on 22 May 2017 which then led Ariana to stage the One Love Manchester concert to raise funds for those affected. The docuseries will also include "unforgettable moments" from the One Love show.

However, despite the title of the documentary, the footage doesn't just end when the tour did at the end of last year. 

There's also insights into the making of her latest album Sweetener featured in the series including footage of her recording the tracks with producer Pharrell, shooting the music videos for both 'The Light Is Coming' and 'God Is A Woman' and even recent rehearsal footage from her incredible VMA performance.
