Ariana Stopped Making Public Appearances And Giving Out Interviews On Being Called A ‘Diva’
Its real, when men take part in interviews and put forward their opinions about their personal experiences, everyone in the audience lends an ear to them, listening patiently and empathizing. For them, it’s alright for men to complain when things go south in their lives.
However, when it comes to women complaining about similar experiences. They are slammed as ‘drama queens’ and ‘too whiny.’ Ariana Grande, a world-famous pop star, cannot escape the sexist grasp of the people either.
“….I stopped doing interviews for a long time….whenever I would get into a position where someone would try to say something for clickbait or twist my words…I would defend myself. And then people would be like, ‘Oh, she’s a diva.’ ”
However, Grande revealed that even though it sits with one. She managed to get over it and deals with things like these, head-on. The show’s host Zane Lowe praised her chartbuster release “Thank You, Next” and the way she expressed herself in the video and dealt with people who have come at her previously and will probably do so again. The song was released in memory of her ex Mac Miller after his death.
More power to you, Ariana!
