If there was any confusion about what Ariana Grande’s lusty duet with Nicki Minaj, ‘Side To Side,’ was referring to, Ariana has now set the record straight in a super candid interview. And yes, it has everything to do with sex!
Yep, you guessed it! Ariana, 23, and Nicki’s, 33, sexy smash is just as X-rated as you thought. In a very revealing interview with MTV on Aug. 28, the singer admitted that her single was referring to how a woman might have to walk after spending a long night in the sack with her lover. “That whole song is about riding leading to soreness. ‘Ride d**k bicycle’ is the lyric, indeed,” Ariana said blatantly. Wow!
The lyric of discussion comes during Nicki’s raunchy verse where she says, “This the new style with the fresh type of flow / Wrist icicle, ride d**k bicycle / Come true yo, get you this type of blow / If you wanna Minaj, I got a tricycle.” Additionally, the “Dangerous Woman” singer added, “I been here all night / I been here all day / And boy, you got me walking side to side.” Is it just us, or is it getting really hot in here?
Ariana and Nicki performed the reggae-inspired duet at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards earlier in August. And the performance included some of those hidden references with Ariana and dancers riding exercise bicycles in super sexy unitards. The stunning show mimicked her music video in which she and Nicki were also seen working out in a vacant gym warehouse. SO hot!
If you were a little caught off guard by the single’s true meaning, you weren’t the only one. Apparently Lena Dunham, 30, also had no clue what she was jamming to until her boyfriend explained it. See her hilarious tweet below:
Jack just explained that the song Side to Side is about getting railed so hard you can't walk. SO MANY EMOTIONZ.

Ariana did happen to leave out where she got the idea for “Side To Side” from… though something tells us it might have something to do with her boyfriend, Mac Miller, 24. Ariana recently confirmed that the two were officially an item on the VMAs white carpet. Lucky guy!
HollywoodLifers, what do you think of Ariana and Nicki’s song, “Side To Side?” Did you know what it was really talking about?
