Ariana Grande Unveils Eye-Popping, High Kitsch ‘Yours Truly’ Album Cover

Ariana Grande unveiled the cover of her hotly-anticipated debut album on Twitter today (July 31) and it definitely leaves a lasting impression. Yours Truly — in stores September 3 — looks like a cross between an Anne Geddes calendar and a Victoria’s Secret catalogue. Not since Celine Dion‘s iconic Miracle cover art has an artist shown such refined taste and sophistication!

Jokes aside, the 20-year-old looks lovely (above the neck) but the babydoll styling and little girl pose is kind of alarming considering the fact she’s wearing lingerie while crouched on a bed of roses, pouting innocently for the camera. But as Ariana reminded us in a tweet: “it’s about the music.” And the music we’ve heard thus far has been very good indeed. See the kooky diva‘s tweets after the jump.

Let us know what you make of this visual masterpiece in the comments below. I’m still coming to grips with it.
