Music news

A seemingly very close duo was born on the set of the musical “Wicked”. Ariana Grande and Cynthia Erivo have written their friendship into the skin.

It’s a beautiful story of friendship. If in “Wicked”, the good witch Glinda and the evil Elphaba from the Wizard of Oz are far from being friends, off camera, their interpreters have become very close. Ariana Grande and Cynthia Erivo even decided to anchor their friendship in skin.

Last December, the singer of “yes and? » shared a photo of their first joint tattoo, done in April 2023. In their palm, the two singers inscribed “For Good”. A reference to the duo of Glinda and Elphaba. But that’s not all !

More recently, on Instagram, Cynthia Erivo shared numerous photos to thank the “Wicked” film crew. A new photo has slipped into this selection of photos.

The actress starring in “The Color Purple” reveals a new tattoo matching that of Ariana Grande. The two stars are, in fact, wearing a flower on their hand. And to perfect this detail that binds them, the American artist accompanied her photo with a tender message addressed to Ariana: “ We worked and worked and worked so hard. We cried and laughed and cried some more, I am endlessly proud of us, of the way we loved Elphie and Glinda and the way we loved each other. You are one of a kind and if I had to do it over again, you would still be my Glinda, but Ari is the gift I was lucky to have. Now it’s time for us to share this beautiful witch “.

In response, Ariana reacted by also posting a story. “ My Elphie… My Cynthia… indeed!!!! I will never forget a second of this time spent with you. Perhaps the loudest laughter and tears of my life. I can’t wait for the world to be changed by your Elphie as I was by her and by the time I spent with you. Yes, you are the fiercest talent on earth… But you are an even fiercer friend. I am so grateful for the incredible privilege of knowing and loving you! “, she wrote.

The popstar also shared a video showing their friendship. We see the two stars talking without paying attention to what is happening around them. They don’t even notice that they are being filmed. What could be more beautiful than a friendship like this?
