Ariana Grande Cautions Fans About Halloween Parties Amid Pandemic: ‘Stay Your A–es Home’

What’s the spookiest thing about Halloween this year? The ongoing coronavirus pandemic, according to Ariana Grande.

The “Positions” singer took to social media on Saturday (Oct. 31) to share a cautionary message about the importance of having fun and celebrating All Hallows’ Eve, but also being safe and maintaining social distancing.

“Happy best day of the year everyone!” Grande wrote alongside an adorable photo of a kitten with bat wings on Instagram. “Please dress up, take photos, get in your pjs and stay your a–es home bc the spookiest thing going on tonight is still this massive pandemic.”

Lizzo, who cleverly dressed up as the fly sitting atop Vice President Mike Pence’s head during a recent VP debate, commented to Grande’s post, writing, “Facts.”

Grande shared a similar message on Twitter in response to a tweet from fellow singer Tinashe, who also warned about the potential dangers of attending Halloween gatherings this year.

“These lil Halloween parties are not worth getting sick for,” Tinashe tweeted. “PLEASE … BE SAFE OUT THERE! USA hit a new record number of Covid cases in a day TODAY.”
