Ariana Grande, a Grammy-winning musician, recently claimed that she grew up watching the original ‘Gossip Girl’ “religiously” and was overjoyed to hear one of her songs featured on the popular show’s reboot.
Grande revealed in an interview with Allure that she experienced a full-circle fan moment while catching up on HBO’s Max revival series, People magazine claimed.
The 28-year-old singer discussed her new cosmetics brand with Allure in the magazine’s October 2021 edition, taking a brief pause during the conversation to geek out on the upcoming ‘Gossip Girl’ remake.
Grande revealed that she was binge-watching HBO’s Max adolescent drama when she was pleasantly pleased to hear her song ‘Positions’ played during a critical scene in the first episode as Kristen Bell’s narrator voice made her triumphant return to the franchise.
“Please excuse me! Does anyone want to warn me when the f——— titles begin to roll in and Kristen Bell’s voice begins to utter Gossip Girl-related things as my music plays in the background?” She recalled her response.
“Is anyone willing to simply warn me? Due to a heart attack, “she continued.
“You know, I was a young girl who grew up watching Gossip Girl regularly. And then here I am…” Grande continued.
In 2012, the pop artist tweeted, “Chuck and Blair forever,” a reference to the original series’ protagonists.
According to People magazine, the first six episodes of season one are presently available to stream via HBO Max, and the second half of the series is scheduled to premiere in November.
HBO Max has extended the relaunch for a second season, claiming that the revival, which launched on July 8, had the best launch of any HBO Max original this year.
‘Gossip Girl’ is a relaunch of the same-named CW original series, set nine years after the original website went offline.

Jordan Alexander, Eli Brown, Thomas Doherty, Tavi Gevinson, Emily Alyn Lind, Evan Mock, Zion Moreno, Whitney Peak, and Savannah Lee Smith star in the first season, alongside Todd Almond, Adam Chanler-Berat, Johnathan Fernandez, and Jason Gotay.
