Diane Keaton Is Living Her Dreams and Covering "Thank U, Next"
We stan a stan. Diane Keaton declared her love for Ariana Grande in a new Instagram post that has her covering "Thank U, Next." Keaton's version of the song plays as images of Grande splash across the screen, making for a surreal karaoke session that's equal parts unhinged and enthralling.
Entertainment Weekly notes that Keaton's performance comes after Grande declaring her love for The First Wives Club during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show when she shared that the movie inspired her performance.
"You know, Ariana Grande is just amazing so once in my life, just once in my stupid life I want to sing along with the amazing Ariana Grande so here I go," she says before getting right into the song. When she finishes, she states, "Ariana Grande is a genius and I'm an idiot but so what, it was a lot of fun."
Keaton's caption was an all-caps declaration of love for Grande, begging for the chance for a real-life duet, "I LOVE ARIANA GRANDE! DO YOU THINK SHE WOULD WANT TO SING A DUET WITH ME?" Please, Ari, make it happen.
Keaton's post did get a comment from Grande, who wrote, "!!!! love you SO MUCH" and "i am having an out of body experience."
Grande used her Ellen appearance to debut the song back in 2018. When she took to the mic, she wore an all-white outfit and had two backup vocalists, recalling an iconic sequence from The First Wives Club, which starred Keaton alongside Goldie Hawn and Bette Midler.
