Personally, I am thoroughly unimpressed with Ariana Grande.
She is undeniably beautiful and talented, but her presence really stops there. The extra something
is missing. That's why when I heard that she had rapped Nicki Minaj's portion of her hit single "Bang Bang" at a recent performance for BBC Radio 1 Teen Awards, I was intrigued.
But, alas, it's a no go. Grande's "rap" consists of her mumbling her way through Minaj's verse, every now and then actually pronouncing a full, audible, word, but mostly just touching her earpiece and looking smug.
I stand by my previous assessment, that usually no good can come of it when singers rap.
