Ariana Grande is Her Own Kind of Feminist and She’s Not Sorry

Ariana Grande is not joking around.

You may not take her seriously, you may think she’s just that girl from donut gate, but this girl is not stopping anytime soon.

She told Billboard for her cover story.

“I feel like I’m still just getting started — a lot of people forget I’m only three years in.”

In fact, the singer is just getting ready to release her latest and greatest album Dangerous Woman, the cover of which features her as “Super Bunny,” her own personal superhero.

“Whenever I doubt myself or question choices I know in my gut are right — because other people are telling me other things — I’m like, ‘What would that bad bitch Super Bunny do?’ She helps me call the shots.”

But music isn’t the only thing Ariana takes seriously these days. She’s also set on being a feminist for a new kind of generation.

After seeing a radio station praise male singers for showing skin and berating female stars for doing the same, she said:

“If you’re going to rave about how sexy a male artist looks with his shirt off and a woman decides to get in her panties or show her boobies for a photo shoot, she needs to be treated with the same awe and admiration. I will say it until I’m an old-ass lady with my tits out at Whole Foods. I’ll be in the produce aisle, naked at 95, with a sensible ponytail, one strand of hair left on my head and a Chanel bow. Mark my words.”

Mad respect.
