And she’s essentially supporting it.

Ariana Grande has been one of most talked-about women in the world this year, from her hilarious tattoo typo to dropping her '7 Rings' music video.

The pink-hued vid predictably went viral, raking in over 56 million views in four days, and becoming the most talked-about music video since, well, Ariana’s 'Thank You, Next'.

It made headlines again this week however, after Ariana fans or ‘Arianators’ as they have named themselves, started a movement to boycott '7 Rings'.

But it wasn’t her comments about weaves or her tattoo typo that prompted the boycott. Instead, it was an effort to get Ariana’s latest song, 'Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored', to number one.

Yes, Arianators are actually boycotting one Ariana song to give another Ariana song the top spot.

Why? To make Ariana the first artist to debut three singles at number one - and the 25-year-old is finding it hilarious.

‘Can u please tweet #BOYCOTT7RINGS to show your solidarity’, one fan tweeted the singer, to which she replied,’ r u ok?’.

When she understood the reasons behind the cause however, she got involved, tweeting about her amusement at the whole thing.

Will it work? We’ll have to wait and see.

Like we needed another reason to love Ariana Grande!
