It has definitely nothing to do with her doughnut-licking debacle not too long ago, but pop singer Ariana Grande is sure to have a short-lived stint as cast member of the upcoming horror anthology series “Scream Queens” airing on the Fox network beginning on September 22.
Ari will be a member of the Kappa sorority in Wallace University. A scene from the TV series has, for some reasons, found its way to YouTube, showing how short-lived the fate of the “Love Me Harder” singer in the upcoming show.
The synopsis of “Scream Queens” detailed that a devilish murderer is unleashing his or her terror after Dean Munsch, played by Jamie Lee Curtis, declares that sorority pledging must be open to all students and not just for the school’s elite.
The YouTube clip was immediately removed from the site as the character of Ariana Grande was apparently shown getting stabbed in the neck by the murderer wearing a devilish costume. Ari’s character then defends herself and tries to tweet for help but gets stabbed again in the head, details the International Business Times of UK.
An all-star cast
The 22-year-old songstress is actually part of the all-star cast in the Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk anthology series featuring Jamie Lee Curtis, Emma Roberts, Billie Lourde, Abigail Breslin, Nick Jonas, Keke Palmer, Skyler Samuels, Lea Michele, Nasim Pedrad, Glen Powell, Niecy Nash, Oliver Hudson, Diego Boneta, and Lucien Laviscount, plus a few more.
The series promises a perfect blend of cut-throat jokes and gory deaths where at least one character gets killed every episode.
Apparently, there will be a total of 25 cast members in all for Season 1. However, Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, who are the creators, writers, and directors of the upcoming TV series, disclosed that only four of them will survive as the show will figuratively and literally burn through its characters.
Murphy added that the four cast members who shall survive Season 1 will move on to Season 2 of “Scream Queens” to a new horror genre. However, they will continue to play the same characters that they had in Season 1. Murphy specifically mentioned such point because it’s different with the other horror anthology series that he and Falchuk are also doing – the “American Horror Story.”
In the “American Horror Story,” cast members come back to the subsequent seasons not to reprise their previous roles but altogether take on new ones.
Murphy also disclosed that he will direct the first hour of the “Scream Queens” two-hour premiere while Falchuk will helm the second part.
It was actually Murphy who revealed in one interview previously that there is at least one cast member who will die for each of the 15 episodes of Season 1 of “Scream Queens.”
With only four of the cast members surviving after 15 episodes, there will be a total of 21 deaths in all. This means that a couple of episodes of the show will have more than one death of a cast member.
The trailer of the show reveals that an unfortunate death that took place around 20 years ago in the Kappa House, haunts inmates when a person with a scary red mask starts killing students one by one.
To get her mind off her doughnut-licking fiasco, and also to keep herself in good shape, Ariana Grande was recently spotted taking a workout class at SoulCycle’s East 63rd Street location on July 30 where she was said to be acting completely normal, reports Page Six.
Ariana Grande wore a pair of black cat ears instead of the typical Lululemon headband on top of her signature high ponytail.
During class, the “Bang, Bang” singer looked like she was having a blast particularly during the arm workout where she was said to be dancing like she was at a concert with Whitney Houston’s “I Wanna Dance with Somebody” playing in the background. Ari was singing along the music too.
While she has made headlines and unsavory criticisms for her diva-like behavior including her doughnut-licking debacle and her ‘I hate America’ grumbling, Ariana was said to be super friendly and nice to her fellow class members in the workout.
