Singer Ariana Grande on Thursday again apologized for licking donuts at a California shop and saying she hates America.
Grande, 22, took to YouTube Thursday night to again say she was sorry for "for the whole doughnut fiasco and craziness," She said an earlier apology posted on Twitter missed the mark.
"I feel like the apology that I posted, I like kind of missed my opportunity to actually, sincerely apologize and express how I was feeling because I was too busy preaching about my issues about the food industry," Grande, 22, said in a black-and-white video titled "sorry babes."
Grande was caught on video saying "I hate Americans, I hate America" when a store employee brings out a tray of doughnuts.
Grande said her comments arose out of frustration with unhealthy eating and U.S. obesity rates. An apology posted early Thursday on Twitter largely concerned her feelings on Americans’ eating habits.
"I’ve actually never been prouder to be an American, to be honest with you," Grande said.
Grande said, "I was so disgusted with myself" after seeing the video, which was first posted by the gossip website TMZ.
"Seeing how ugly it looks when you behave a certain way makes you want to never behave that way again," Grande said. "I was just really embarrassed," she said, adding that, "I’m gonna learn from my mistakes."
