2020 hasn’t been the easiest year for Ariana Grande, but the pop singer is still taking the time to find the fun in the holiday season. Grande shared a photo of her beautiful Christmas tree on Instagram Tuesday—and it’s casually dangling from the ceiling in her condo, in a Zaha Hadid–designed building, with a row of black stockings hanging from a nearby mantel and a handful of goth candlesticks lining the top of it. Her brother, Frankie Grande, shared a slightly brighter version of the photo to IG that same day, revealing a cluster of presents gathered “under” the tree and a smaller, right-side-up tree sitting on the ground below. Any Grande fan worth their salt (or, sweetener) will recognize the beautiful Christmas tree as just another element of her fascination with all things upside-down: Earlier this year, she released her fourth studio album, Sweetener, which features the singer’s face on the cover, but upside down. The music video for her first single off the album, “No Tears Left to Cry,” also has the pop star walking effortlessly from the walls onto the ceiling for an equally disorienting effect. When asked about her decision to have an upside-down tree in her home, Grande told photographers, simply, “Sometimes life just be upside down.”
