See Ariana Grande Transformed Into An Iconic 1950s Horror Movie Creature
Ariana Grande, pop singer, shows off her beautifully crafted Halloween costume that she adapted from Creature from The Black Lagoon. Although Grande is a celebrity icon, she was first known for her role as Cat Valentine on Nickelodeon’s Victorious. Grande, who is a talented singer, signed a record contract in 2011. She soon hit the charts with her debut album, Yours Truly, in 2013. Grande has received numerous accolades since then, including two Grammys and a Brit Award.
Creature From The Black Lagoon was Universal Pictures’ first monster film. It was released in 1954. Jack Arnold, director of The Incredible Shrinking Man, directed the black-and-white horror film. It was released in 3D early on. This movie introduced viewers to the frightening Gill-Man (also known as the creature), who lurks in waters of the Amazon. The horror genre’s most iconic figure, the monster, was a regular alongside Dracula, Frankenstein’s Monster, and the Mummy. The Creature Walks Among Us in 1956 and Revenge of The Creature 1955 were two sequels.
Grande posted a Twitter photo of her own version of the monster. She calls it “Miss Creature From The Black Lagoon.” Grande revels in the role by recreating the original theatrical poster. Grande’s husband Dalton Gomez, who is also featured in the photos, is named “Handsome Scuba Men.” These photos show Grande swimming in the deeps while drinking nonchalantly from an empty wine glass. You can see the original post below.
Meanwhile, Creature From the Black Lagoon is still waiting for a new reboot. After writing the screenplay for Zack Snyder’s Dawn Of The Dead’s film, James Gunn proposed a remake. However, Universal rejected it. Other failed revivals came closer to realization, including the Dark Universe project, which would have seen all Universal’s monster movies remade for an eventual crossover. The Mummy’s 2017 reception was not good enough to stop that revival. However, 2020’s The Invisible Man revived interest in solo-films and a Creature From the Black Lagoon re-run remains possible.
The Halloween efforts of Grande will please both horror film fans and those who love Grande’s pop music. Grande joins the annual tradition of famous celebrity Halloween costumes such as Megan Thee Stallion’s Pinhead costume or Lil Nas X’s Voldemort transformation. Grande’s acting history may make audiences wonder if she could ever star in a horror film. She was last seen in the 2015 horror comedy Scream Queens. Grande is often the final girl in a movie, but this post suggests that Grande may be more excited about the role.
Netflix has a new comedy special featuring comedian Pete Davidson. It unsurprisingly covers his relationship with Ariana Grande, a musician. Rather than being lighthearted, Davidson shows that he is still bitter about their breakup. He jokes about the five months of their 2018 romance. This is how Saturday Night Live’s cast member discusses Grande in Pete Davidson: Live From New York.
Davidson’s Netflix special begins with a long commentary on fellow comedian Louis C.K. (the subject of a scandalous 2017 sexual misconduct case). Davidson recalls how Louie’s creator and star tried unsuccessfully to fire him from Saturday Night Live two year prior. This was due to his admission to marijuana use, which led to an awkward meeting between Davidson and Lorne Michaels. The Netflix special is 49 minutes long and covers all the millennial-related topics that Davidson addresses on Saturday Night Live’s Weekend Update segments. Davidson uses a tone that ranges from self-aware embarrassment and sheer annoyance at his public image.
After Mac Miller died in September 2018, Grande and Davidson began a relationship. Grande and Davidson parted company one month later after the tragedy. This led to more public discussion about the nature of their relationship. Davidson discusses the breakup in the special at the 31 minute mark. The comedian refers to his ex-girlfriend first, before he goes on to comment about another 2018 controversy. Davidson defends jokes about Dan Crenshaw, a U.S. soldier and politician, and says that he made him famous and that he did “what, like Ariana Grande did for us… I was a sucking machine for his dick on SNL.” Davidson waits for some applause, before making further comments on Grande.
Davidson suggests that he didn’t plan to make jokes about Grande, but that his “buddy” convinced him to bring up the topic after Grande called the comedian a “distraction”. According to Davidson, Grande is now “fair game” and he suggests that it might have been more difficult if he had revealed “dirty laundry” about the Grammy-winning singer.
