She’s got one problem. Sexism.
Working in the music industry, and receiving a great deal of media attention following the success of hits like Bang Bang with Nicki Minaj and Jessie J, and Problem with Aussie rapper Iggy Azalea, Grande is no stranger to the industry’s sexist attitudes.
But now, she’s had enough.
Sick of the endless focus on her love life, Grande told UK publication The Sun, “I’m tired of needing to be linked to a guy, I’m not Big Sean’s ex, I’m not Niall’s new possible girl. I’m Ariana Grande.”
Grande previously dated Big Sean, and is now rumoured to be involved with One Direction member, Niall Horan. But the singer would very much appreciate it if people stop referring to her as some man’s ex. Thank you very much.
