Ariana Grande is getting ready to wrap up her Dangerous Woman Tour, but that doesn’t mean she can’t squeeze in some play dates!
After two days of back-to-back shows in Sydney, Australia, following her Melbourne and New Zealand dates last week, Grande is taking time to explore all the beauty that Australia has to offer. Her first stop? The zoo, obviously!
Grande kicked off her last week in Australia by getting cozy with a few animals at the iconic Australia Zoo, and her photos are too cute to handle. On Monday, the “Into You” singer posted two images of herself with her new furry friends, one being an adorable meerkat.
“!” Grande simply wrote alongside a picture of her and the meerkat. From the looks of it, Grande has found her new BFF and it’s no coincidence that it’s an animal who has a big part in the Disney universe. The Lion King anyone?
In case you didn’t know, Grande has always been a fan of Disney — she sang with John Legend in the new live-action Beauty and the Beast, and she even has a Disney and Pixar photo case covered in Monster’s Inc. pictures! So, hanging out with a meerkat — like Timon in The Lion King — seems like the perfect pairing for Grande.
The former Victorious star shared a video of herself holding a kola bear on her Instagram page, too.
“Leave me and my daughter alone,” she captioned the cute video.
If a singer goes to the Australia Zoo and doesn’t hug a koala, did they ever really go? The answer is yes, but every star who touches down in Australia seems to cuddle koalas, and we’re so jealous.
