On March 11th, Ariana Grande just released “Dangerous Woman” and she came by AMP Radio to catch up with Michelle about her latest album!
She gave us some insight into why she changed the name of her album from “Moonlight” to “Dangerous” woman. She describes her new album as “darker, more mature, a very nice blend between the R&B stuff I’ve done in the past and the pop stuff I’ve done in the past.”
She also talked to Michelle about her SNL performance (tomorrow night!), working with MAC again in the future & so much more.
While at 97.1 AMP Radio station, Ariana Grande stopped by The Daly Download with Carson Daly, and the topic of Kesha and women’s issues came up.
She gave an honest and heartfelt answer when asked about her fellow female artist.
“I love Kesha,” says Grande with conviction. “I worked with her when I was a lot younger. We’ve been friends, I support her, regardless of what’s going on. I didn’t know about a lot of this, at the time I was really young. We didn’t discuss any of this. The incredible double standards that we [women] face on a daily basis, in the industry and just in the world, it’s shocking. I would be so amused, and pardon me if this comes across as sexist, but I don’t think a male artist would be in this position right now. Sorry.”
And when asked if she is worried about being so open with her support of Kesha, Grande didn’t hesitate to respond.
“If I’m speaking out about something I’m passionate about, I’m willing to take the brunt for fighting for what I believe in. And my fellow women are definitely something that I will always be one of the first to speak up about.”
