On Dec. 21, Netflix released Excuse Me, I Love You, which is already the second most-watched movie on the platform. On Instagram, before the film came out, Grande shared a promotional graphic and explained that the doc is a "love letter" to fans.
In the caption, she said, "I just wanted to thank you all for showing me more in this lifetime already than i ever dreamed of. Making music and doing all of this has been all i’ve known or fully given myself to consistently for a very long time now. Although my heart is looking forward to a change of pace, I wanted to express again just how eternally thankful i am. i’ve learned, seen and felt so much. it’s been such an honor to share so much of this life with you."
Read on to see everything we know about the revealing documentary.
The concert film follows the 27-year old songstress during her "Sweetener" world tour in 2019, and it includes quite a few of her major hits, from "7 Rings" to "Dangerous Woman." While the film focuses on her performances, rehearsals and a number of intimate backstage moments, fans also get a glimpse of the singer's down-to-earth personality when she's not all glammed up and preparing to do a show. In fact, the most intriguing part is probably her lengthy story about her dog's poop.
Excuse Me, I Love You was directed by Paul Dugdale and executive produced by Grande, Scooter Braun, Allison Kaye, Scott Manson (SB Projects), and Jesse Ignjatovic and Evan Prager (from Den of Thieves). Meanwhile, the film was produced by Simon Fisher, Liz Garbus and Dan Cogan.
Naturally, the documentary was met with positive reviews from loyal Arianators, and it even got the approval of Grande's mom, Joan. She tweeted, "Crying, smiling, loving...memories flooding...I feel the excitement and I’m right there. Thank you @ArianaGrande for the magic, the beauty, the magnificent music, your endless talent & live vocals."
