“It was so exciting because I love Adam McKay. I am such a fan of his work. I’m such a comedy fan and I love him,” Ariana said of the director whose credits are Anchorman, Talladega Nights and Step Brothers.

“And he reached out and said, ‘I’ve got this part for you in my new movie.’ And I thought, ‘Oh, my god. Well, wait a minute, because I have to audition, I have to earn this, I have to put myself on the tape,” Ariana revealed.

Ariana said the director told her an audition wasn’t necessary because it was “a little bit fast” and she asked to read it.

‘I’m reading it. I loved it. It’s brilliant. I got this small, but such a fun and incredible part. I feel so excited to be a part of this. It was so cool,” Ariana said.

Ariana said she plays Riley Bina, “this aloof and slightly oblivious pop star” whose relationship with DJ Cello, played by Kid Cudi, “obscures the news that the Earth is coming to an end, which is great.”

Jimmy asked Ariana if she would do more acting in the future.

‘I would love that. I hope so, yes,” Ariana said.

‘I would personally love that. I’m a little surprised he hasn’t contacted me yet. …For me to be on the remix of his most recent single titled, ”When I die, I hope I come back as a country boy.;’ I personally feel like I’m perfectly suited for something like that,” Ariana joked.

She referred to Blake’s new song Come Back As A Country Boy which he released last month.

The Voice kicks off the live playoffs on NBC on Monday.
