The two performed the catchy single at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards.

Ariana told MTV News in no uncertain terms that the song was about having SO MUCH sexual intercourse, that you, well inevitably walk, side to side, “That whole song is about riding leading to soreness… ‘Ride d–k bicycle’ is the lyric, indeed.”


Fans weren’t the only one surprised by the song’s true meaning, Girls star Lena Dunham revealed on Twitter that her boyfriend, Jack Antonoff, explained what ‘Side to Side’ meant…

Ariana and Nicki have teamed up before; they collaborated with Jessie J for the single, ‘Bang Bang’.
