Ariana Grande released a video on Thursday to once again apologize for the “donut fiasco” that dominated the headlines recently.
The 22-year-old pop star really wants everyone to understand that she’s deeply sorry for licking donuts that she didn’t pay for and saying that she “hates America.”
She is also sorry for her previously released apology, which she felt wasn’t honest enough.
Watch: The Donut Lick
In this video, which is shot in black and white and almost-uncomfortably intimate, Ariana manages to hit all the important points, expressing that she’s “actually never been prouder to be an American,” and that she was “so disgusted” with herself and her actions that she “wanted to disappear.”
In the lengthy apology video, Ariana promises, “I’m gonna learn from my mistakes,” and stresses that she “never wants to be anything but a positive influence” on those who look up to her.
While many have found the “donut fiasco” simply strange or amusing — and likely felt her first apology was sufficient — some stars weren’t ready to forgive. Namely actor Rob Lowe, who tweeted that her apology was “lame,” and later told ET that he hopes they kill off her Scream Queens character “earlier.”
