Ariana Grande may be small, but don’t you dare mess with her or her girls. She will not hold back.
To promote her new album , Dangerous Woman , the pint-sized dad star sat down with Billboard for the purposes of an interview, and she surely had a lot of sentiments she wanted to share.
In the interrogation, the singer talks about how her reputation changed when she transitioned from Nickelodeon actress to pop superstar, what her new book is an issue of and her “happy” relationship with backup dancer Ricky Alvarez.

Ariana Grande Update (@ arianaslatest9 3) September 24, 2015
Grande also made sure to talk about her favorite subjects — female empowerment, feminism and gender equality — and she got pretty heated about them, to say the least.
She seemed to get the most heated when the topic of women in relationships came up, reportedly referring to one very concrete, very public, extremely loved affair in particular: Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber.
Ariana is altogether on Selena Gomez’s side about the whole women-being-defined-by-their-exes happen, aka she misses that to stop RIGHT NOW.
Now, while Ariana doesn’t explicitly respond whom she’s talking about when she gives an example, the interviewer greenbacks she made it quite obvious she was referring to Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber.
The pop star mentioned,
I’ll never be able to swallow the fact that people feel the need to attach a successful wife to a husband when they say her reputation … I verified a headline stretch your own conclusions[ on the subjects] because it’ll be so much drama that I don’t want they announced someone another someone’s ex, and that pissed me off. This person has had so many great registers in the last year, and she hasn’t been dating him eternally. Announce her by her reputation!
This isn’t the first time Selena’s struggle to detach herselffrom Justin Bieber has come up, and I must say, I contemplate Ariana is right.
Gomez herself has said many times she wishes parties questioned her about situations other than her famous ex, like maybe the three top-1 0 singles she’s had this past time or her new world tour or being literally the most followed person on Instagram.
It’s pretty clear Gomez is pretty fed up with the association at this degree, but parties still don’t get the picture.
Maybe Ariana’s messages will eventually get the letter through to everyone. JELENA IS OVER, PEOPLE. GET IT THROUGH YOUR HEADS.
