Ariana Grande Reminds The World That She Is Not A Starbucks Drink

Ariana Grande Reminds The World That She Is Not A Starbucks Drink featureAriana Grande was fooling around on Snapchat recently when she took the opportunity to remind everyone that she’s a person, not a special item at a famous coffee chain.

Ariana’s last name is the second largest cup size at Starbucks, and that means every comedian on Twitter loves plucking the low-hanging fruit of turning Ariana’s name into a coffee pun. Some fans even go so far as to prank Starbucks employees by trying to order an Ariana Grande.
