Get ready, you guys, because according to reports, Ariana Grande‘s upcoming Sweetener World Tour movie is coming soon! Yep, The Sun reported that the streaming services are currently fighting over who will get the rights to the documentary, and that Netflix and YouTube are in a $5 million bidding war for it.
“Ariana’s team are negotiating a huge deal between a number of big hitters, with Netflix and YouTube both showing interest. Netflix has put forward a starting offer of [$5] million to get the rights. The deal is being negotiated by Ari’s closest advisers, led by [her manager] Scooter Braun,” a source told them. “She had cameras following her every move on the Sweetener World Tour last year. Along with her performances, Ariana was filmed backstage, while traveling and during down time. It will be a brutally honest and raw depiction of how tough life can be on the road but will include the happier, heart-warming times too.”
For those who missed it, the singer teased the concert movie on Twitter on July 28, 2020. When a fan asked her to talk about it, she replied, “No,” with the sunglasses emoji.
