First of all, before we begin, I have to clarify, I'm not hating. I'm a Britney Spears fan first and foremost and we are subjected to the ugliest tour merch ever created.
Case in point, when Britney fans paid $40 to get an exclusive tour shirt...and this is what they were sent.
It's so bad it's iconic now.
That said, Ariana Grande just started her Sweetener World Tour and her merch is...questionable.
It's not me saying this, it's the fans.
It seems like the clothes are part 2001 Delia's catalogue and part New Jersey boardwalk spray paint t-shirt booth.
I don't...get it?
The quality has also been not so great.
But the real attention getter, the real MVP, is the blue squiggle "dick stain" shirt.
Yup, a dick stain.
Here an enthused fan shows off his bounty.
I mean, I love dicks so I love it...
His eyes scream "Yas queen."
There's also a squiggle that says USA.
And blotches and the word "Europe."
In conclusion, bad merch happens to good people. This isn't just an Ariana problem, this is an everyone problem. Hopefully, someday, the fans will have more control of what they get because let's be real, we know what we want and we're the ones paying $50 for a t-shirt anyway.
But seriously, someone buy me the dick stain shirt. I need it.
