She started teasing the title swap on Snapchat earlier this week.

Right now the site consists of two sections: tea and shop. Tea features a voice memo from Ariana and shop is, well, a shop.

Ariana promises that she will be sharing album details and spilling actual tea in the tea section, however.

Ariana promises that she will be sharing album details and spilling actual tea in the tea section, however.

Today's tea is that Dangerous Woman is the new album title and that Ariana will be doing double duty as host and musical performer on the March 12 episode of Saturday Night Live.

She also said that she plans perform Dangerous Woman's title tracks, as well as as song titled "Be Alright."

Why Dangerous Woman? It seems the title change was inspired by a passage from Egyptian feminist Nawal El-Saadawi's 1975 novel Woman At Point Zero.

Woman At Point Zero tells the life story of Firdaus, a woman on death row in a Cairo prison. According to the publisher summary, the novel follows Firdaus “from her childhood of incomprehensible cruelty and neglect to her end in a grimy Cairo prison cell.

It's a move in keeping with Ariana's increasingly outspoken relationship with feminism.

So, get ready, Arianators: her dangerously outspoken era is upon us.
