Ariana Grande’s Grandmother Makes History As Oldest Person on Hot 100

All Nonna had to do was give Ariana Grande some advice about love to make history.

Grande’s grandmother Marjorie Grande (or Nonna to the world) posed for a photo with a massive plaque commemorating her accomplishment of becoming the oldest person to land a song on the Hot 100 thanks to Grande’s “Ordinary Things.”

“Celebrating the one and only, most beautiful Nonna who has now made history for being the senior most person to ever appear on the @billboard Hot100 🥹🥹🌞,” Grande wrote on Instagram with a photo of her Nonna. “We love and thank you.”

The track, which served as the closer for Eternal Sunshine, landed at Number 55 on the Billboard chart following the album’s release. In the outro, Nonna recounts feeling “like seeing daylight” after her husband would come home to see her.

“It’s not that we never fought, you can overcome that, you know?” she told Grande in the snippet included on the track. “Never go to bed without kissin’ goodnight/That’s the worst thing to do, don’t ever, ever do that/And if you can’t, and if you don’t feel comfortable doing it/You’re in the wrong place, get out.”

Fans have seemed to connect that Nonna’s answer served as an answer to the question the singer posed on opening track “Intro (End of the World)” where Grande asks, “How can I tell if I’m in the right relationship?”

Grande also spoke to Zane Lowe following the release of her album and shared why she always records her grandmother when she’s around her.


“I always record my Nonna when I’m with her because you never know what she’s gonna say and she’s the most hilarious person in the world,” Grande told Lowe. “I had this, like, thirty-minute voice note of her and her friend Shirley talking and, um, it was just right smack in the middle of it, and I said, ‘Oh my God, that’s the answer.’”

Grande dropped Eternal Sunshine in early March, and landed at Number One on the Billboard 200 albums chart. Eternal Sunshine marks Grande’s fourth consecutive Number One album. In a glowing review of the new album, Rolling Stone‘s Brittany Spanos called Eternal Sunshine “a gorgeously exposed journey to the end of her world — or at least what she believes to be the end.”
