Why does confetti want pop star Ariana Grande dead? I'm forced to ask this question once again after the singer was attacked by multiple squares of white paper at Sunday night's VMAs. Here's the clip from MTV's audience cam, via BuzzFeed:


After a piece landed on her eye, she tried to get rid of it by removing her glasses, but the confetti refused to budge, creeping down over her face, ever closer to her heart. Question: can paper cuts kill? Answer: Yes, if you get enough of them.

This isn't the first time confetti has tried to murder Ariana Grande. Back in December 2014, the singer performed at Z100's Jingle Ball at Madison Square Garden and "almost died" after slipping on confetti.

when u slip on confetti & almost die at madison square garden 😭😩😂

Did a confetti mob boss put out a hit? Is Big Scissor behind it? Are patriotic Americans using tiny drones disguised as confetti to off the notorious America-hating donut licker?
