Watch ariana grande issue a second doughnut apology: ‘sorry babes’

On Wednesday (July 8), Ariana Grande issued an apology for her recent “I hate America” comment, but she wasn’t done saying “sorry.”

The pop singer posted a brand new video to YouTube Thursday night (July 9), referencing the seemingly silly — but increasingly serious — scandal in which she was caught on camera licking donuts in a pastry shop.

In the video — entitled “Sorry Babes” — Ariana addresses her fans directly.

“I just wanted to make a video to apologize, again, for the whole doughnut fiasco,” Ari starts, admitting that her first apology didn’t quite cut it. “I kind of missed my opportunity to actually sincerely apologize and express how I was feeling, because I was too busy preaching about my issues with the food industry… I feel like I could have expressed myself in a different way, so here I am, apologizing again.”

“Seeing a video of yourself behaving poorly that you had no idea was being taken is such a rude awakening,” she says. “I was so disgusted with myself… I apologize for my poor choice of words and my behavior… I was just embarrassed, and I never want to be anything but a positive influence on my babes or my loves or anyone who pays attention to me, for that matter.”

“I’m 22 years old, I’m human, and I’ve still got a lot to learn.”

There you have it, babes. Do you accept Ariana’s apology, again?
