Ariana Grande Sings Broadway Version of A$AP Rocky’s ‘F**kin’ Problems’

In honor of Ariana Grande, MTV brought back its iconic music show “TRL – Total Request Live” for one day only. The pint-sized diva took over Times Square during the 30-minute special, entitled “Total Ariana Live.” Fans waited outside in the rain to catch a glimpse of their idol, who couldn’t hide her nerves.

“I’m very, very excited, but I’m very nervous,” she said. “I’ve sung on live TV a million times, but I’ve never done anything like this.”

Backed by a pianist, she performed a stripped-down version of her hit “Problem” and put a Broadway spin on A$AP Rocky’s “Fuckin’ Problems.” She had the MTV censors working overtime as she belted out the expletive lyrics.

Plus, she debuted her Zedd-assisted single “Break Free” with some help from her dancers.

Ariana will perform the song off her upcoming album My Everything at the VMAs in L.A. on August 24.
