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.
