Ariana Grande may have a hot new Christmas song on the market, but she's actually not a fan of the jolly old man in red.

During an interview with the Daily Star, the "Santa Tell Me" singer reportedly said, "I'm repulsed by Santa." Yeah, that's not something we ever expected her saying, either.

"My song may sound cheerful, but it's really quite sardonic and depressing," she continued. "I'm like saying, 'Santa, what is your deal, bro?'

"I've had my heart broken multiple times around this time of year. I feel although it's one of the most cheerful times of the year, I see tons of heartbreak and they make movies about it. It's like a [Wham!] "Last Christmas" vibe."

However, Grande's heart will not be broken this festive season, because according to HollywoodLife, things are getting pretty serious between her and her beau Big Sean.

"Sean is giving Ariana a ring for Christmas," a source told the site. "He wants to show her how committed he is. I'm not sure if he’s going to ask her to marry him — I don't think he even knows that yet. But he got a ring made for her."

Aside from the gift that her beau allegedly gave her for Christmas, though, Grande reportedly told the Daily Star that she doesn't need gifts or fancy jewelry, because there are more important things in life.

"I'm a big animal lover," she told the British publication. "I don't need presents [or] fancy jewelry. What would make me happiest is for friends to rescue a pup or kitty."

"Or maybe my fans could adopt a turkey in my name. Anything animal-related would make me happy," she confessed.
