Following a recent split with Big Sean, Ariana Grande has gone on the record about Sean and expresses her support for feminism and calls out the sexism that exists in the media today. “I meant 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 … If a woman TALKS about sex openly … she is shamed! But if a man talks or RAPS freely about all the women (or more commonly used “bitches” / hoes” … how lovely) he’s had … he is regaled.” She writes.
Her message was met with support from other artists such as Rita Ora and Taylor Swift, who in the past have expressed similar concerns. “I’m so proud of you, always. But especially today,” Swift posted on Twitter. In addition, Ariana also posted a feminist manifesto written by her aunt on her twitter account (see below).
