Why Is Ariana Grande Covered In Blood?

We won't even bother giving you a big ol' spoiler alert here — it's been a badly kept secret for a while — Ariana Grande's character died early in the premiere of Scream Queens last night. Today, she's having way too much fun posting pics of herself spattered in fake blood on the set.

As TVLine pointed out, the pop singer was noticeably absent from promotional stills of anything but the first episode of the Ryan Murphy show. That's how many viewers guessed she'd be offed quite quickly. Besides the fact that one wouldn't expect a music artist on the upswing of her career to devote too many precious hours to television.

Grande, one of the most engaging singers on Instagram right now, shared some other antics from the set, which also find her covered in Chanel's blood spatter. She rapped some Nicki Minaj with the Helium app. (And still sounds good? Not fair, lady.)

when you're so loopy on set you start to recite nicki's bang bang verse as a serious acting monologue + helium app

She also serenaded her photog friend Alfredo Flores (who just shot her for V magazine) in a spot-on impersonation of Whitney Houston.

We're still hoping she'll make an American Horror Story-style, ghostly return, BTW.
