Ariana Grande wasn’t kidding when she said she had one less problem.
In a page-long Twitter post, the singer defended her feminist stance on Sunday (June 7) surrounding the recent news of her and rapper Big Sean’s split. The rumors circulating about her possible romance with One Direction member Niall Horan also triggered the proclamation.
Pointing out a bloodline of feminist activists in her family, Ariana said that she does not consider herself Big Sean’s “ex” because it insinuates being a man’s past possession. She feels women have more value and should accept more identity than a mere connection to a romantic relationship.
“I know y’all already know this, but the double standard and misogyny are still ever present,” the “Break Free” singer declared. “I can’t wait to live in a world where people are not valued by who they’re dating/ married to/ attached to, having sex with (or not)/ seen with…but by their value as an individual.”
Grande took a few shots at the double standard topics, discussing rappers who are admired for having multiple sex partners and women who are scrutinized for the same actions.
