What's the story?

DANGEROUS WOMAN DIARIES is a YouTube Premium series that follows Ariana Grande as she produces and drops her Sweetner album, and goes on her Dangerous Woman Tour. Cameras follow as the singer works in the recording studio, tapes music videos, prepares to perform live, and and pals around with her team of directors, choreographers, and dancers. Cameo appearances by celebs like Pharrell Williiams ​​​and Nicki Minaj ​​​​​also add to the mix. In between candid moments, Grande talks to viewers about her work and professional journey. 

Is it any good?

This fun-for-fans series offers viewers the chance to see what goes on behind-the-scenes during Ariana Grande’s grueling and hectic production and touring schedule. While it doesn’t show much of the recording process itself, it offers the chance to see how she goes about conceptualizing and rehearsing for live appearances (like the VMAs), and the work that goes into producing music videos. She also offers some of her thoughts about her music, her concerts, and other events. 

Despite some discussion of female empowerment, most of this doc revolves around the hard work and antics of Grande's team. However, Dangerous Woman Diaries steers away from Grande’s more intimate life, including her well-publicized relationship (and break up) with comedian Pete Davidson. If you’re not an Ariana Grande fan, you won’t find much here beyond a lot of self-promotion. But chances are that tween and younger teen fans will find a lot of fun here.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about Ariana Grande’s popularity. Why is she so famous? What do her fans like most about her?

  • What kinds of things do people expect from pop stars like Grande? Has she subverted any of these expectations? What did you learn about her in Dangerous Woman Diaries?
