Ariana Grande is back on the media circuit promoting her new single, “Focus”, and it’s the best thing ever because the sass queen isn’t afraid to put judgemental people in their place.
In a recent appearance on California’s Power 106 FM, radio presenters questioned Ariana about things like makeup, cell phones and unicorn emojis, you know, the important stuff. “If you could use makeup or your phone one last time, what would you pick?” was the first question to really kick off the sourness of the conversation, to which Ariana responded, “Is this what you think girls have trouble choosing between?”
They also went as far as to suggest that unicorn emojis are just for girls, but Ariana wasn’t having a bar of it, telling them they need a “little brushing up on equality”. She really put the nail in the coffin when they asked her what she would like to change about the world, though — her big opp.
“I have a long list of things I’d like to change,” she said. “I think, judgement in general. Intolerance, meanness, double standards, misogyny, racism, sexism. You know, all that shit. There’s lots we’ve got to get started on. That’s what we need to focus on. We’ve got work to do.” Yaaas.
This morning Ariana further expressed her intolerance for judgemental humans, biting back at a social media user who thought it was OK to compare the pop star to Modern Family star Ariel Winter.
“Got asked if I’d prefer @arielwinter1 or @ArianaGrande lol, it wud [sic] DEFINITELY be @arielwinter1surves are sexy sticks aren’t,” the comment read, which Ariana screen shotted and posted to her Instagram.
“Tweets, comments, statements like this are not okay,” Ariana responded. “We live in a day and age where people make it IMPOSSIBLE for women, men, anyone to embrace themselves exactly how they are.”Ariel retweeted, writing, “I celebrate everyone for who they are because that is what makes them beautiful.”
Thank you @arianagrande for posting this I love the message you’re putting out there. I especially believe in today’s world we all need to stick together- I believe in EMPOWERING other women and not putting them down. I celebrate everyone for who they are because that is what makes them beautiful. You ARE beautiful.
We’re surprised anyone would body shame Ariana, especially when she’s made it very clear how she feels about that kind of behaviour.
