Don’t try Ariana Grande because the pint-sized beauty will tell it like it is! During a recent fan encounter Ariana said she was left feeling, ‘Sick and Objectified’ after a fan encounter—not her fan, but her boyfriend Mac Miller. Grande says she was grabbing food with Miller when a “young boy”came up to them saying he was a fan of Miller. She said the incident was “cute and exciting,” but things soon turned sour when the fan called Ariana “sexy as hell,” and complimented Miller on “hitting that.” Saaay what so of course Ari was miffed.”Hitting that? The fu*k?? This might not seem like a big deal to some of you but I felt sick and objectified.”
But through all of this Ariana’s message was most important—respect! “We need to talk about these moments openly because they are harmful and they live on inside of us as shame. We need to share and be vocal when something makes us feel uncomfortable because if we don’t, it will just continue. We are not objects or prizes. We are QUEENS.”
Ariana also added, “seeing a lot of “but look how you portray yourself in videos and in your music! you’re so sexual!” …. please hold.. next tweet… i repeat. expressing sexuality in art is not an invitation for disrespect !!! just like wearing a short skirt is not asking for assault.Women’s choice. ♡ our bodies, our clothing, our music, our personalities….. sexy, flirty, fun.
it is not. an open. invitation. You are literally saying that if we look a certain way, we are yours to take. But we are not !!! It’s our right to express ourselves. ♡.”
