Ariana Grande's New Music Video Includes Zero Ponytails

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Ariana Grande's new music video for her single, "Dangerous Woman" includes lots of sexy gazes into the camera and lacy lingerie accessorized with highly on-trend chokers. But one very important thing the video is missing: Ariana Grande's signature ponytail.

In the nearly four minutes we get of Ariana Grande, there is not one instance of an Ariana Grande ponytail, be it a full-pony, a half-pony, or even a half-half-pony (a quarter pony?). There's not even a space bun! Just long, relatively straight, un-ponytailed hair. It's a very bizarre experience, and you can watch it below.
