They Mac Miller were both out picking up some food when a “young man” approached the couple, excitedly telling Miller that he was a fan.
“He was loud and excited and by the time M was seated in the driver’s seat, he was literally almost in the car with us. I thought all of this was cute and exciting until he said ‘Ariana is sexy as hell man. I see you, I see you hitting that!!!'”
“Hitting that? The f**k??” she continued. “This may not seem like a big deal to some of you but I felt sick and objectified. I was also sitting right there when he said it.”
Ariana “felt really quiet and hurt” after the encounter and that these are the “kinds of moments that contribute to women’s sense of fear and inadequacy.”
“I am not a piece of meat that a men gets to utilize for his pleasure,” she wrote. “I’m an adult human being in a relationship with a man who treats me with love and respect.”
Grande went on to say that it “hurts my heart that so many young people are so comfortable” when it comes to using phrases that objectify women “with such ease.”
“We need to talk about these moments openly because they are harmful and they live on inside of us as shame,” she concluded. “We need to share and be vocal when something makes up feel uncomfortable because if we don’t, it will just continue. We are not objects or prizes. We are QUEENS.”
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
On June 5th, Meghan Trainor had an interview on Twitter to answer fan questions that were tweeted to her. She answered two questions about Ariana. What is her favourite song at the moment and will she ever work with her again? Watch her answers below!
In the past week in December, Ariana Grande has been teasing music on Snapchat, and we weren’t sure of what this music was to be… As Ariana started teasing more on Snapchat and Twitter, we knew it was definitely time for her to release more Christmas music again!
Here is the logic we have tweeted on our Twitter page.
Notice the sleigh bells in this snippet posted 5 days ago, only Christmas music incorporates sleigh bells pic.twitter.com/v7RsuMoY7i
For the past months, Ariana Grande has been teasing us with snippets of new music, and lyrics, and after finding out about the release date of her single Focus was on October 30th, everyone went crazy and are too anticipated for the song! The singer then teases us with Focus lyrics on Twitter during the countdown.
Also, there is a website where you can go and see more lyrics if you follow the instructions on the page, like blinking and covering your eyes to focus (you must have a webcam on). Check out the lyrics below as I tried to reveal them on the site:
If my real ain’t real enough
I’m sorry for you bae
I know what I came to do
and that ain’t gonna change
so go ahead and talk your talk
cuz I won’t take the bait
Focus on me
Let’s find a light inside our universe
Where ain’t nobody keep on holding us down
All donut-gate jokes and new fragrance announcements aside, Ariana Grande and her new boyfriend Ricky Alvarez – who also just so happens to be one of her dancers – are apparently so happy with each other that they’ve probably been skipping in fields of daisies and humming love songs 24/7.
They’re really, really happy. OK?
News of Ari’s new beau surfaced when the whole donut licking fiasco went down and the partners in crime were caught on surveillance camera sneaking a little smooch.
Now one of those sneaky source types has been spilling some details on the new couple’s budding romance, telling E! News that they ‘couldn’t be happier’.
“She and Ricky have gotten pretty close and they are officially a couple,” said the insider. “They are keeping their relationship on the down low though and trying to be as private as they can.
“The way the two act around each other is very affectionate. You can tell Ricky really cares about her.”
Right, so I’m just curious about when do I get to become an international popstar and date our backup dancer?
Are Arianators on Twitter shipping Rickiana into infinity? Here’s what some of them say…
I want ariana to get all this childish behaviour outta her system w Ricky then get back with Sean

On July 7th, TMZ has leaked a raw video of Ariana Grande with Ricky and his relatives at a donut shop while they were celebrating the Fourth of July. Ariana and Ricky were caught kissing on camera, which confirms their relationship. Controversy has been brought up when Ariana Grande licked donuts and her choice of words when she cursed and said “I hate America”. Well folks, that is all explained.
Ariana Grande took it to Twitter to apologize for the actions that happened during that night, saying how everything was put out of context. She sets a great example of the US and the obesity weight that brings a negative impact on society:
need to clean up this mouth of mine & set a better example for my babes. i apologize and i love you. always learning. pic.twitter.com/BkJWcLxR5y
She also explains how she cancelled the MLB show due to her oral surgery of having her wisdom teeth removed. Also, in the video, you can see Ariana and the employee laughing along as Ariana was amazed at how huge the donuts were. That’s why she has used those words about America, but TMZ did not show this in the first video released!
On June 10th, In celebration of the fact that women are dominating social media, The Huffington Post UK is publishing a list of the 100 most influential women globally on the social network today.
The most followed Twitter account belongs to a woman: Katy Perry. The I Kissed A Girl singer has over 70 million followers, ten million more than Barack Obama. But she’s not the most influential woman on the list.
First, they ranked the top women based on their ‘influence’ (a score out of 1,000 ranking the likelihood that someone will trust a Twitter user and act upon their posts). We then filtered based on their ‘outreach’ (how active they are on Twitter, hence Beyoncé’s ‘outreach’ score is a pitiful zero) and finally sorted each segment by the number of followers. Only verified accounts were considered.
The most influential women are all glamorous, entertaining, smart, successful and – inevitably – very popular. Most are from the music world, but women from other industries make an appearance: J K Rowling, actor Emma Watson, media personalities like Tyra Banks and Fearne Cotton, comedian Sarah Silverman, tennis star Serena Williams and entrepreneur and fashion star Victoria Beckham.
And Ariana Grande meets those requirements as she is the SECOND most powerful woman on Twitter, just missing out on the top spot. At only 21, Ariana has a devoted following after releasing her first album in 2013 and being showered with awards.
Ariana’s popularity is also boosted by her use of Twitter as a platform to denounce gender inequality and sexism. Angry at how media coverage often mentions her in the context of her boyfriend, musician Big Sean, she issued what Vanity Fair called a feminist “sermon” on the social network, which drew 78,000 retweets and praise from many corners. Check out the whole list below!
‘Bette was always a feminist who stood for women being able to do whatever the F they wanted without judgement! not sure where that Bette went,’ Grande tweets.
Where you at, Delores Delago! Ariana Grande responded to Bette Midler‘s Telegraph diss via Twitter on Tuesday, Nov. 25, and asked what happened to the old Midler, who didn’t judge and famously donned a mermaid costume in a wheelchair on stage.
“Bette was always a feminist who stood for women being able to do whatever the F they wanted without judgement! not sure where that Bette went but i want that sexy mermaid back!!! always a fan no matter what my love,” Grande posted on Twitter with a photo of Midler in costume and the caption, “all love here.”
Midler previously sounded off on the songstress and other young female pop stars in an interview with The Telegraph posted on Monday. “It’s terrible!” the 68-year-old multi-hyphenate told the paper. “It’s always surprising to see someone like Ariana Grande with that silly high voice, a very wholesome voice, slithering around on a couch looking so ridiculous. I mean, it’s silly beyond belief and I don’t know who’s telling her to do it.”
“I wish they’d stop,” the Hocus Pocus star said in reference to whoever is guiding Grande. “I wish they’d stop. But it’s not my business, I’m not her mother. Or her manager. Maybe they tell them that’s what you’ve got to do. Sex sells. Sex has always sold.”
The Grammy winner added: “Whatever structures there were have fallen apart. And now it’s whatever you feel like doing you can do. I mean, apparently people really like to pretend they’re having sex. They really like to slap each other’s butts.”
After admitting that maybe it’s her own fault and she’s, perhaps, the one out of touch with reality, Midler concluded the interview by advising young performers: “Trust your talent. You don’t have to make a whore out of yourself to get ahead. You really don’t.”
Despite the harsh words, Grande seems to still be a fan of Midler’s past work. She tweeted: “I will still quote First Wives Club every single day of my life LMAO.”
After a long period without ruling on the matter, the choreographer Isaac Calpito – friend and former team member of Ariana Grande – finally decided to talk about the controversy surrounding his alleged “resignation” of Team Ariana. Since Isaac stopped working with the singer in mid July to August, many people speculated and came to invent rumors like that it would have required Ariana lose weight, and therefore would have been excused.
After learning of the story, Isaac decided to use his Twitter account this afternoon (18) to clarify once and for all the rumors and accusations. Check out what was said by him:
There have been a lot of lies and false accusations about me. I have kept quiet and classy till now because that is the kabbalistic way.
Victoria Justice waited but finally decided to speak out about the confusion surrounding her and Ariana Grande’s drama regarding Victorious.
In an interview with Seventeen Magazine released in August this year, the magazine hinted that Ariana Grande suffered bullying on set of Victorious by an unknown member of the cast, who told her she was not “good enough”, which made sure she tried to change herself to please those who attacked her. However, it seems that it was all a misunderstanding.
On her twitter, Victoria Justice revealed that statement made by Ariana Grande had nothing to do with any of the cast of Victorious , but with the cast who worked on Broadway with her. Victoria Justice decided to clarify the facts after a girl said she was the person who committed bullying against Ariana Grande. See the tweets below:
The two had fought for other reasons at the beginning of the year (another statement made by Ariana Grande) and since the ending of Victorious, the two have not been seen together and they haven’t talk over one another. However, by that Victoria Justice has hinted, they have talked and decided the situation.
