Ariana Grande Calls America "The Greatest Country In the World"

"I'm so grateful to be here in Tampa and I'm so grateful to be performing in the U.S.A., the greatest country in the world!" Ariana shouted to a screaming crowd.

Let's hope Ariana Grande is a Nirvana fan, because it seems like she'll be singing "All Apologies" for the rest of 2015.

At the kickoff of her Honeymoon Tour on Thursday (July 16), Grande continued to publicly atone for her "I hate America" candid comment, which was caught on camera at a donut shop (#DonutGate) nearly two weeks ago.

"I'm so grateful to be here in Tampa and I'm so grateful to be performing in the U.S.A., the greatest country in the world!" Ariana shouted to a screaming crowd.

Based on their response, it looks like her fan base has already forgiven her. As for the rest of the country, time will tell if this is a footnote gaffe or a recurring punch line for the rest of her career.
