Pop star Ariana Grande is single now, and she would really appreciate if you stopped treating her like a wounded puppy. Don’t let the ponytail and pumps fool you: She packs a grande punch.
Grande posted a screed to both Twitter and Facebook condemning the way women are treated in the wake of a breakup, and their treatment as sexual beings in general. The singer recently split with rapper Big Sean, and she’s now on her world tour.
In her post, she repeatedly quotes feminist icon Gloria Steinem and refers to her aunt Judy, the first Italian-American female president of the National Press Club. She calls out society’s double standard when it comes to sex, and she’s 100 percent on the money.
The moral of the story: Don’t refer to women as so-and-so’s “ex.” Don’t define them by their romantic relationships. And definitely don’t mess with Ariana Grande.
