Ariana Grande is only three years into her career as a talented, much loved singer and she is already making headlines as a young woman fighting for equality.
During an interview for her Billboard cover story the singer pulled up a series of tweets that she had saved on her phone that praised males like Zayn Malik and Justin Bieber for posing topless, while Miley Cyrus and Kim Kardashian were slammed.
“If you’re going to rave about how sexy a male artist looks with his shirt off, and a woman decides to get in her panties or show her boobies for a photo shoot, she needs to be treated with the same awe and admiration,” Grande said.
The singer also commented on the idea that it is okay to refer to a women as someone’s ex, clearly pointing the finger at Selena and Justin.
“I’ll never be able to swallow the fact that people feel the need to attach a successful woman to a man when they say her name,” she said.
“I saw a headline — draw your own conclusions [on the subjects] because it’ll be so much drama that I don’t want — they called someone another someone’s ex, and that pissed me off. This person has had so many great records in the last year, and she hasn’t been dating him forever. Call her by her name!” Her voice echoes off her home’s bare walls. “I hate that. Like, I’m fuming. Sorry. You opened up … I need to take a sip of water and breathe. Don’t get me started on this shit.”
She officially gave her best interview to date. Continue with the sass Ariana!
