Lady Gaga And Ariana Grande's 'Rain On Me' Instagram Filter Is Unintentionally And Hilariously NSFW

It, uh, doesn't look like rain.

It seems like new BFFs Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande had a lot more in mind than just their song, ‘Rain On Me’, and its accompanying music video. Releasing in conjunction with ‘Rain On Me’ is a special Instagram filter in which fans can make videos of themselves being rained on, not unlike what happens to Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande in their music video.

Unfortunately, this ‘Rain On Me’ Instagram filter looks less like raindrops falling down your face and more like… fluids of the bodily kind.

Speaking of Lady Gaga, the GOAT team talk about her most underrated album, ‘Artpop’, on ‘It’s Been A Big Day For…’ below:

The original selling point of this ‘Rain On Me’ Instagram filter is that it’s meant to look like raindrops streaming down your face in a really cute way. But after the initial buzz over the song and music video blew over, fans couldn’t help but notice that something was off about it.

Here’s what the filter looks like when applied to Ari’s face:

Yeah. It looks exactly like what you think it is.

This definitely wasn’t lost on the internet and a quick search on Twitter will result in a sea of NSFW comments and satirical recreations of Lady Gaga and Ariane Grande’s ‘Rain On Me’ bukkake Instagram filter.

Some of the reactions are definitely things we can’t share here, mainly because it looks like some people recreated the filter with actual bodily fluids, but here are a few SFW-ish samples of how fans are reacting to this accidentally hilarious faux pas.

One has to wonder how Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande didn’t foresee the bukkake effect their ‘Rain On Me’ Instagram filter would have. Then again, the duo are pretty open about sex and the like – Ari’s ‘Side To Side’ is literally about being sore after a wild night of sex while Gaga is all about sex positivity.

Perhaps Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande knew exactly what they were doing with this wild ‘Rain On Me’ Instagram filter this whole time and we just thought their song was literally about rain.

Lady Gaga Being 'Too Ashamed' To Hang With Ariana Grande Is Way Too Relatable

Hitting too close to home there, Gaga.

You’d think Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande would easily be BFFs given that they’re both superstars and have worked together on the much-hyped collab track, ‘Rain On Me’. But underneath all that glitz, glamour, and world-saving things she does, it seems like Lady Gaga racked with the same sort of self-doubt we all have when it comes to hanging out with people.

Speaking of Lady Gaga, the GOAT team talk about her most underrated album, ‘Artpop’, on ‘It’s Been A Big Day For…’ below:

Chatting with Zane Lowe on his Apple Music show (via Billboard), Lady Gaga took a deep dive into her Chromatica album, how the record came about, and talked about a number of songs on it, including ‘Rain On Me’.

When asked about how it was working on her ‘Rain On Me’ collab with Ariana Grande, Lady Gaga gushed about how the two instantly connected on a creative and musical level during the recording of the single:

“When we were vocally producing her, I was sitting at the console and talking to her. And then I remember I said to her, ‘OK, now everything that you care about while you sing, I want you to forget it and just sing. And by the way, while you’re doing that, I’m going to dance in front of you,’ because we had this huge big window.

“And she was like, ‘Oh my God. Oh my God, I can’t, I can’t. I don’t know. Oh my God. Okay, okay.’ And then I did it and she sang, and she started to do things with her voice that were different. And it was the joy of two artists going, ‘I see you.'”

But things then took a turn for the painfully relatable when Lady Gaga talked about how despite her growing relationship with Ariana Grande, she felt “too ashamed” to open herself up and just hang out with her collab partner, despite Ari putting in a big effort to be friends with her.

Happily, Gaga eventually got over her self-doubt after a D&M with Ari and the two became friends:

“She was like, ‘You’re going to be OK. Call me, here’s my number.’ And she was so persistent. She would try over and over again to be friends with me. And I was too ashamed to hang out with her, because I didn’t want to project all of this negativity onto something that was healing and so beautiful.

“And eventually she called me on my sh*t. She was, ‘You’re hiding.’ And I was like, ‘I am hiding. I’m totally hiding.’ And then this friendship blossomed.”

The rest of us plebs definitely haven’t been in a recording studio working on a banger with a fellow superstar. But the self-doubt one feels after connecting with someone, especially if said someone is putting in an effort just to be friends with you? Yeah that hits really close to home.

It’s difficult to open yourself up to someone new, especially if that person is a peer whom you have admired. And who hasn’t gone down the slippery slope of thinking “what if I screw this up?” and “I don’t want to ruin what we got” whenever you form a connection with someone?

Hearing that Lady Gaga was hesitant to be friends with Ariana Grande because of her own hang ups is something we can all relate to. And as weird as it is too say, hearing people as powerful and influential as Gaga be so vulnerable is pretty comforting and strangely empowering because it just shows we’re all human at the end of the day.

John Krasinski Ruins The One Good Thing We Had In Iso By Selling Out

Why can't we ever have nice things?

One of the few bright spots the world has had during these strange isolated times is John Krasinski’s Some Good News YouTube channel, which is basically the actor and his family goofing around in his home office all for the sake of bringing a smile to everyone’s face.

But that bastion of wholesome goodness has now been completely shattered because John Krasinski has decided to sell Some Good News – and his soul – for a big bag of cash.

Speaking of YouTube, the GOAT team talk about Jeffree Star’s latest scandal on ‘It’s Been A Big Day For…’ below:

According to The Hollywood Reporter, John has sold the rights to Some Good News to giant conglomerate ViacomCBS after what was a “massive bidding war” that netted Krasinski a “rich” licensing deal. In other words, John Krasinski made serious Office-level moolah selling his YouTube show.

What does this mean for us plebs who have been getting through iso by watching Some Good News free on YouTube?

Well it means that Some Good News will now move from YouTube to ViacomCBS’ streaming platforms, meaning new episodes will be put behind a paywall from now on and fewer people will have access to the show. The irony of having to pay for a previously-free show titled Some Good News isn’t lost on us.

But the biggest change will be the face in front of the camera. It is reported that John Krasinski will no longer be the host and will only be involved in a producer role, as well as some kind of “on-air presence.” So in other words, not only will Some Good News no longer be free but the strongest aspect of the show will be gone.

Apparently John was hesitant to sell the serious because he wanted to make Some Good News free on YouTube while also reaching the the biggest audience possible, but it seems like Krasinski changed his mind quickly though no reason was given. Getting a dump truck full of money is a pretty good way to change someone’s mind, just saying.

Look, I certainly can’t fault John Krasinski for jumping at the chance to make a big pile of money, but there’s just something unsavoury about this whole thing. It seems kind of gross that what initially began as a feel-good project to help people through these dark times will now become a corporate product that most people who are struggling financially can’t access.

The thought of John Krasinski taking something so wholesome and profiting off of it during these uncertain times is unseemly to say the least.

Hope you got a good price for Some Good News and your soul, John Krasinski. Can’t blame you for wanting to make bank but just don’t expect me to like what you did.
