Elsewhere at Grande’s Shut up Evan interview, she talked about her admiration for another comedic actress — Kathy Najimy, who was featured in the musician’s album “No Tears Left to Cry” Sweetener World tour.

“I forgot about the Kathy Najimy reference, but it was actually a video of my best friend, Aaron Simon Gross,” Grande explained. “When we counted down to Sweetener when I came out, I got so nervous that people weren’t going to like the album, or get it or whatever, and he was doing all these PSAs for my Instagram Story.”

“It was just different people that I loved, and he said, ‘Hi, I’m Kathy Najimy, and this album is for sophisticated art consumers.’ It became something that my fans and I loved so much that I put it into the series,” she added.
