Ariana Grande sorry for sec­ond time

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - ENTERTAINMENT - THE AS­SO­CI­ATED PRESS

Ariana Grande has apol­o­gized for a sec­ond time for lick­ing dough­nuts and say­ing “I hate Amer­ica.”

The singer said in the video clip posted late Thurs­day that she’s “dis­gusted” with her­self. She adds that she didn’t clearly con­vey her true feel­ings in her first apol­ogy - a writ­ten state­ment in which she ranted about obe­sity in Amer­ica.

“See­ing a video of your­self be­hav­ing poorly that you had no idea was taken is such a rude awak­en­ing.

“It’s like you don’t know what to do. I was so dis­gusted with my­self, I wanted to shove my face in a pil­low and just dis­ap­pear,” she said in the four-minute clip.

Grande came un­der fire this week when TMZ posted a video of her lick­ing dough­nuts and say­ing “I hate Amer­i­cans. I hate Amer­ica” in­side a dough­nut shop in South­ern Cal­i­for­nia.

“I’m go­ing to come for­ward and own up to what I did and take re­spon­si­bil­ity and say I’m sorry,” she said in the video, which had close to 1 mil­lion views on YouTube by Fri­day morn­ing.

Su­san Saran­don is re­unit­ing with big-screen co-star Nick Nolte for a TV po­lit­i­cal satire.

The Epix pre­mium chan­nel said Saran­don will play a for­mer first lady op­po­site Nolte’s ex-U.S. pres­i­dent in the half-hour se­ries ti­tled “Graves.”

It’s set to de­but in Au­gust 2016, which will co­in­cide with the fi­nal months of the real-world Amer­i­can pres­i­den­tial cam­paign.

In “Graves,” Saran­don’s char­ac­ter de­cides to ful­fil her own po­lit­i­cal am­bi­tions as her hus­band be­gins an un­likely ef­fort to right his ad­min­is­tra­tion’s wrongs, Epix said.

Saran­don and Nolte played a mar­ried cou­ple in the 1992 the­atri­cal re­lease “Lorenzo’s Oil,” which earned Saran­don an Os­car nom­i­na­tion.
