Ariana Grande‘s album cover is generating as much buzz as the two hot singles pulled from the set. The 20-year-old R&B/pop powerhouse revealed the cover art and new title of her debut album, Yours Truly, to a Twitterstorm of commentary. Much of the tweets about the shot, which shows an innocent-looking Ari dressed in lingerie and kneeling on a bed of flowers, had the same narrative:
@John_Isnt_Irish plz go and listen to your mentally retarded fave Ariana who is advertising kiddie porn on her album cover & fuck off.

Why is Ariana catering to pedophiles with this album cover?

But, as Ari tweeted, it’s about the music. And you can hear the music on September 3 when Yours Truly is released.
