Ariana Grande’s Unique Christmas Tribute to Ethan Slater: A Broadway-Inspired Decoration That Captivates All
Pop sensation Ariana Grande has crafted a unique Christmas decoration for her boyfriend, Broadway star Ethan Slater. The decoration, a Spam can ornament, is not just a festive bauble but a thoughtful nod to Slater’s current role in the Broadway revival of ‘Spamalot’, the 2005 Tony-winning musical adaptation of Monty Python and The Holy Grail.
The Spam can ornament was hung on a wall Christmas tree made of green garland, adding a touch of Broadway magic to their holiday celebrations. This creative gesture underscores Grande’s support for Slater’s work and their shared love for the theater.
Grande and Slater’s romance blossomed on the set of the upcoming movie adaptation of ‘Wicked’. Their relationship, confirmed by PEOPLE in July, followed Grande’s separation from her husband Dalton Gomez and Slater’s separation from his wife Lilly Jay. The couple has yet to make their red-carpet debut, but their bond is evident in their shared passion for the performing arts.
Grande’s support for ‘Spamalot‘ extends beyond the Christmas ornament. She has been a regular fixture in the audience since rehearsals began in October, cheering on Slater during the show’s first preview performance on Halloween and attending the opening night on November 15. Her Instagram Story is filled with selfies taken as she and her friends sat in the ‘Spamalot’ audience, a testament to her unwavering support for the show and Slater’s performance.
Both Grande and Slater have a rich background in Broadway. Grande began her music career at age 15 in the 2008 Broadway musical ’13’, and later gained fame on the Nickelodeon TV series ‘Victorious’. Slater is best known for his Broadway debut as SpongeBob in ‘SpongeBob Squarepants’, a role that earned him a Tony Award® nomination for Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role.
Currently, the couple is working on the upcoming movie adaptation of ‘Wicked’, where Grande plays Glinda and Slater portrays Boq. As they continue to support each other’s careers and share their love for the theater, fans can look forward to more creative gestures and powerful performances from this dynamic duo. This Christmas decoration is just one example of how Grande and Slater are blending their personal lives with their professional passions, creating a harmonious symphony of love and art.
Amidst the holiday cheer, Ariana Grande took to Instagram to share snippets of her festive celebrations. From mirror selfies in a chic black mini dress to capturing the glow of Christmas lights on the floor, her post exudes joy and warmth. A family Facetime call, featuring brother Frankie Grande and mother Joan Grande, was a heartwarming inclusion, along with selfies with friends and a delightful snap of two furry companions.
As we revel in the festive season, Ariana Grande’s thoughtful Christmas gesture not only symbolizes her love for Ethan Slater but also celebrates the magic of Broadway and the joy of sharing the spotlight with those we hold dear. Here’s to love, creativity, and a Spam can ornament stealing the show this holiday season!
