In the hours since reports of explosions at Ariana Grande's concert in Manchester began rolling in on Monday night, the details of the attack have become increasingly horrifying. Since the event. Reminder: Ariana is NOT responsible for Mac Miller's death. If I see that shit on my TL you getting flamed up and blocked. We are responsible for our own lives no matter how much we invest into others and have them invest into us.
BY CHLOE MELAS; EDITED BY AOL ENTERTAINMENT Performing for the first time ever on 'Saturday Night Live' on Sept. 27, proved once again why she's a chart-topping artist.
The 21-year-old and her powerful, uber-controlled vocals shined during two amazing performances of 'Break Free' and 'Love Me Harder' on this weekend's episode, hosted by Chris Pratt. Launching into her first performance atop a piano, Grande started singing a stripped down intro to 'Break Free' before hopping down to ground level and moving into the usual, faster-paced version of her hit track. Surrounded by a group of hot male backup dancers, Ariana oozed sex appeal as she flaunted some impressive choreography.
Later in the show, Grande sang 'Love Me Harder,' joined on stage by The Weeknd, who is featured in the song. Did we mention she also wore a hot crop top? The SNL debut was one of many high-profile gigs the star has earned recently - she sang the National Anthem at the and performed at the telethon. We can't wait to see what she does next. More Ariana Grande.
Next time anyone asks you who you're seeing, if there's anyone special in your life, if there's anything 'new to report,' you can kindly refer them to Ariana Grande. The 21-year-old pop star posted an open letter to and on Sunday, to a recent interview with the Sun. But it's really the culmination of months and months of relentless media digging into her love life — and the response was worth the wait. Grande told 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.' In her new note, she makes herself clear in no uncertain terms.
'What I meant when I said what I said about not being Sean's ex is that I am tired of living in a world where women are mostly referred to as a man's past, present or future PROPERTY / POSSESSION. And neither do you.' 'I have so much more to talk about': Grande's unabashedly feminist open letter comes in response to in which she's been grilled about her love life. When asked about her 'status', she answered, 'I love. My album that's coming out in seven days.'
Asked about her dating life on, she demurred and said simply, 'I'm happy.' When pressed by, she pleaded, 'Why are you doing this to me?' The point, as Grande writes, is not just that her dating life should be private. It's that who she's dating (or not dating) shouldn't be important to discuss, especially considering her recent professional accomplishments.
'I have come to the realization that I have SO. To talk about. I'm currently making the best music I've ever made in my life,' she writes. It's a reasonable request — that in professional interviews, she gets to discuss all of her professional success. It's a demand echoed in which calls out the red carpet reporters for focusing on female celebrities' bodies, fashion, parenting and diets when they're really there to talk about their careers.
Source: Getty/Mic 'The double standard and misogyny are still ever present': The relentless inquiry into Grande's love life reflects the with women's love lives — who they're dating, when they're going to settle down, if they've met the One, when their fiances will finally pop the question. That scrutiny, Grande points out, reflects a gendered double standard for how women are judged.
Men's romantic and sexual exploits are viewed as just that — exploits. But when a woman wants to play the field, date for fun, enjoy casual sex or otherwise chart her own romantic path, the world raises an eyebrow, or worse. 'If a woman has a lot of sex (or any sex for that matter). She's a 'slut.' If a man has sex. A KING,' writes Grande.
None other than fellow pop star Taylor Swift the same double standard, Glamour UK, 'I'm not allowed to date for excitement, or fun, or new experiences or learning lessons. I'm only allowed to date if it's for a lasting, multiple-year relationship. Otherwise I'm a, quote, 'serial dater'. Or, quote, 'boy crazy.' That judgment, faced by celebrities, especially those in their twenties who aren't following society's classic courtship script, is not only exhausting. It sends a damaging message to women that no matter how great their contributions to society and no matter how fulfilled their lives are, their greatest accomplishment is to be settled in a traditional relationship with a man. As Grande writes in her badass note: '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.
