Ariana Grande plays first show of her Sweetener World Tour in New York

Let’s face it. Ariana Grande is to music what Reese Peanut Butter Cups are to food but Ariana sells a lot of tickets (and Reese sell a lot of Peanut Butter Cups).

On Ariana’s latest album ‘thank u, next’ there are 73 songwriting credits for 12 songs. That is not Art, it is fast food. Ariana songs are mostly assembled by 30+ men for the 25-year pop star but hey, that’s showbiz.

The Ariana Grande toy factory keeps a lot of people employed and has earned the factory product a decent bank account (estimated around $45 million). That bank balance is set to rise with the start of her Sweetener World Tour in Albany, New York this week.

Ariana’s first show was at Times Union Arena (formerly Knickerbocker Arena). The venue was opened in 1990 with a performance by Frank Sinatra.
