The question of how Ariana Grande is posing on this stool is paining the internet
The question of whether or not Ariana Grande is actually sitting on the stool on her My Everything album cover is the most pressing on the internet right now.
Thanks to BuzzFeed producer Jesse McLaren, who attempted to recreate it, a new craze has emerged of people attempting the same.
The cover, from 2014, shows Ariana (24) posing on a stool with her legs curled up under her, but the laws of physics don't appear to apply as her bottom is too far back to balance.
McLaren's attempt didn't work out so well...
I've done the research and there's no way her ass is sitting on that stool. pic.twitter.com/AIGNpcJn6G— Jesse McLaren (@McJesse) October 15, 2017
