Ariana Grande apologized for licking that donut and saying she hates America. Again. She says watching the video of her in the donut shop was a “rude awakening” and that she was “so disgusted” with herself. “I reacted in a way that wasn’t necessary...and wasn’t me.”

I’m not sure whether this particular pop culture moment is terrible, and that we deserve it, or if it’s wonderful, and we don’t deserve it. But I’m leaning toward the former, because it’s absolutely excruciating.

In a video entitled “sorry babes,” Grande turned on her B&W filter and spoke for four agonizing minutes about her first apology, why she felt the need to do a second, and how everyone grows from their mistakes.

I was too busy preaching about my issues with the food industry, which is, like, not, I feel like, relative. I feel like I could have expressed myself in a different way. So here I am, again, apologizing in a different way.

We didn’t need you to, but OK!

I’ve actually never been prouder to be an American, to be honest. With the advances that we’ve made in the past couple months and all the wonderful progressive things that have been going on, I’ve never been prouder of this country actually...But yeah. Here I am apologizing to y’all. Puffy cheeks and all.

Please don’t pretend that doing this after wisdom teeth surgery was a burden! And please don’t keep talking! Turn off Photo Booth! Now!

I’m 22 years old. I’m human. I’ve still got a lot to learn. And I make mistakes, and that’s how I’m gonna learn...that’s how we learn. We just have to get better, and actually act on it, and use the mistakes as a platform to learn and to grow and-

Sorry but I can’t continue transcribing this. Ariana, stop talking. Please please please please please never mention this again.
