My Everything

August 12th, 2014

Ariana Grande is sick of the fighting and the finger pointing and the endless cycle of break-up-make-up-break-up-again. Maybe she knows it isn't going to work, but she's still in love and she's still holding on. Meanwhile, Big Sean says the only lying he's doing is when he's lying you down, and if he's not the one then he's definitely the best mistake you ever had.
