Taylor Swift should start writing out a thank you card to Zayn Malik for making their surprise duet happen. “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever” debuted at No. 6 on Billboard’s Hot 100, resulting in a huge milestone for Taylor. The debut marks her 20th Hot 100 top 10 entry, a feat that only five other women in music can claim. Even more impressive, Taylor is now tied with Nicki Minaj for second-most Hot 100 appearances among women.

Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj hit the American Music Awards stage to perform their current single “Side to Side” on Sunday night. The duo got rid of the exercise bikes and went for more of an island theme that was a lot sexier than their VMA performance.
Performing with Nicki wasn’t the only highlight for Arianators. They also got watch their fave take home the “Artist of the Year” award at the end of the show.

Ariana Grande stopped by “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” on Thursday night. She spent some time on the couch with Jimmy to reveal that the “Dangerous Woman Tour” dates are out, share the identity of her first celebrity crush and perform “Side to Side,” her new single–including most of Nicki Minaj’s rap feature on the track.
Ariana also played a game with Jimmy where they had to guess each other’s answers to questions only best friends would know. When Ariana was asked who her first celebrity crush was, Jimmy thought he had it in the bag when he answered that it was him. But it turns out a different Jim from the world of comedy was the first star to catch Ari’s eye. Jim Carrey was Ariana’s first celebrity crush.

Hot off the pedal-pumping heels of last night’s VMAs performance, the music video for Ariana Grande’s song featuring Nicki Minaj has arrived. The visual debuted right after the duo performed the song, “Side to Side,” at the VMAs. And it’s basically one long ad for the Guess brand’s athletic wear.
The video, which debuted on Guess’ website, is reminiscent of the stage performance on Sunday. It even features a similar sexy spin class but way less beef in pink unitards.
Check out the new vid below.

Ariana Grande’s highly promoted performance at Sunday night’s 2016 MTV VMAs struck many on social media as a bit disappointing. And the fitness-inspired staging and awkward choreography may have had something to do with it.
Ariana’s performance of “Side to Side,” which also featured a live appearance by Nicki Minaj, seemed to be more of an advertisement for spin class than an awards show performance.
