Ariana Grande channels Marilyn Monroe in her performance at the MTV Movie Awards.


Ariana Grande channels old Hollywood glamor in MTV Movie Awards performance of “Dangerous Woman.”

Grande gave fans just enough time to get familiar with the original version of her lead album track to reimagine it for a dreamy performance at Sunday’s MTV Movie Awards.

Ariana Grande Performs “Leave Me Lonely” In Las Vegas

Grande shined in a number inspired from Marilyn Monroe’s performance of “Diamonds Are A Girl’s Best Friend” in 1953’s Gentlemen Prefer Blondes film.

The “Leave Me Lonely” singer recently admitted she filmed two music videos for the song. One sweet, one ****. “We’re doing two visuals because this song makes me feel two kinds of ways, it makes me feel **** and glamorous,” she said. “I wanted to do a simpler more glam-themed video ; and then I wanted to do another video because it makes me feel, also kind like a super version of myself in a way.”
