Sabrina Carpenter Shuts Down Troll: “I’m a Grateful Grateful Grateful Girl”

A critic of Sabrina Carpenter’s latest single, ‘Please Please Please’, learned a tough lesson when their hateful comment backfired. The online troll had harshly criticised the song, posting on X, “I don’t think I’ve ever seen someone fumble a second single this hard. My goodness.” However, the comment didn’t age well when Carpenter’s follow-up hit reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

In response, Carpenter posted screenshots of the chart rankings alongside the critical comment, replying with a playful message: “Ohhhh 😭😭😭 I’m a grateful grateful grateful girl.” This achievement marked Carpenter’s first No. 1 in her decade-long career, with her previous breakout hit, ‘Espresso’, landing at No. 4 on the same chart and peaking at No. 3 earlier.

The success of ‘Please Please Please’ was bolstered by its popular music video, which featured Carpenter’s real-life boyfriend, Barry Keoghan, star of ‘Saltburn’. The catchy tune, produced by frequent Taylor Swift collaborator Jack Antonoff, also garnered praise from celebrities, further propelling its rise to the top.

Joey King, star of ‘The Kissing Booth’, recently praised the song, “I’m so happy for her and I just can’t stop singing ‘Please Please Please’ … get out of my head. It’s so rude of her to make a hit like that. It’s also so rude to make such an addicting music video. It’s really rude to make me watch it six times at 2:00 a.m. when I want to go to bed.”

Carpenter also shared the screenshots on Instagram, accompanied by an extended caption in which she expressed her gratitude. She thanked Antonoff for his producing skills, Amy Allen for co-writing, and Laura Sisk for engineering the audio. “MY FIRST #1 on the @billboard HOT 100!!!!!!! And espresso at #4.. I’m very immensely grateful so I will surely always remember this day for the rest of my life!” 

Carpenter wrote. “I love this song and I love you both!!!!! I love our pitchy claps!!!!! I love @sharp_stick !!!! good things come in threes 🥲.” This milestone not only silenced the critics but also highlighted Carpenter’s growing success and the support she received from her fans and peers in the industry.
