Floyd Mayweather has trouble with the name of one of America’s most popular singers.
Floyd Mayweather is falling off what is apparently the greatest brandishing occasion of the year, winning a bout versus UFC pillar Conor McGregor by TKO in the late phases of the battle. Floyd left with a tremendous budgetary benefit from the session, establishing himself as not just one of the best competitors of his era, yet additionally a standout amongst the most gainful ever. In any case, there are still a few things that the champ battles with. Shockingly, one of the things on that rundown is legitimately articulating the name of the one of the world’s most prevalent female pop star.

Mayweather conducted an interview with a puppet – I’ll explain in a second – seated outside his Las Vegas strip club called Girl Collection. The conversation was part of a segment filmed for the YouTube series Awkward Puppets, which had the boxer chatting opposite a mustached character named Diego. I’m assuming that the crux of the interview was to have Floyd some funny soundbites in response to some softball pop culture questions, such as “What’s your favorite Taylor Swift song?” Turns out the fighter doesn’t have one because he doesn’t listen to the “Look What You Made Me Do” star. Things got even more unintentionally hilarious when he was asked about his favorite Ariana Grande track. He pronounced it as “Aria Grande”, leaving out a key syllable that led to even Diego gawking at him in disbelief. He tried to save face by explaining that he doesn’t have a favorite song of Grande’s because he “barely f**king even [knows] her name,” but come on.
The aftermath of Mayweather’s big contest against McGregor has produced some interesting epilogue moments, none the least of which was the Irishman’s reaction a few days after the fight had been logged in the record books. “Congrats to Floyd on a well fought match,” he said in a statement. “Very experienced and methodical in his work. I wish him well in retirement. He is a heck of a boxer. His experience, his patience and his endurance won him this fight hands down […] Here is a toast of whiskey to everyone involved in this event and everyone who enjoyed it!”
