Ariana Grande‘s new album Dangerous Woman is only a daaayyy awaaayy!
What better way for the 22-year-old to celebrate than with her very own Billboard cover, right?!
In what might be her most candid interview yet, when Ari was asked about the double standard celebrity women face when showing some skin, she argued:
“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. See you there with my 95 dogs.”
Ha!! Why does this not surprise us…
In fact, the scrutiny women face in the media is something that really gets under the singer’s skin.
“I’ll never be able to swallow the fact that people feel the need to attach a successful woman to a man when they say her name. I saw a headline — draw your own conclusions [on the subjects] because it’ll be so much drama that I don’t want — they called someone another someone’s ex, and that pissed me off. This person has had so many great records in the last year, and she hasn’t been dating him forever. Call her by her name! I hate that. Like, I’m fuming. Sorry. You opened up … I need to take a sip of water and breathe. Don’t get me started on this shit.”
The Florida native also finally explained the meaning behind that black latex bunny mask she wears on the cover of her upcoming album:
“[The Super Bunny] is my superhero, or supervillain ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ whatever I’m feeling on the day. Whenever I doubt myself or question choices I know in my gut are right ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ because other people are telling me other things ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ I’m like, ├óΓé¼╦£What would that bad b*tch Super Bunny do?’ She helps me call the shots.”
And as far as her unconfirmed relationship with dancer Ricky Alvarez, Ari simply said:
“We’re happy. I’m a very happy girl. I have a healthy life right now, and I think that’s all anyone cares to know. The end.”
