Ariana Grande Complains About 'Selective' Narrative Surrounding Ethan Slater Romance

Ariana Grande Says It's Been 'Hellish' Dealing With 'Selective' Narrative Surrounding Ethan Slater Romance

Ariana Grande is still mad AF about all the assumptions that have been made about her romance with Ethan Slater!

In a new interview on The Zach Sang Show out on Monday, the Wicked star slammed fans who have continued to run with narratives about her romance. You know, the one she started with the Broadway star right after breaking up with her ex-husband Dalton Gomez and while the actor was still married to Lilly Jay. Yeahhh… So, it’s not like all the affair rumors started over nothing! Come on, girl!!

But even with the messy optics, Ari is blaming fans for going along with the speculation without having some compassion for her or her boyfriend. She said in the interview:

“We selectively remember that this is what the tabloids do to people, especially women, based on whether or not we like the person. We selectively remember that. We selectively leave space for humanness, for nuance. Like, they don’t leave space for that — well, they do for their friends and their family. It’s selective. But they turn it off when that aligns with the version of a person that they have in their head that they want to believe is true.”

Girl… is it really on fans who “selectively remember” the timeline here?! Or was the timeline just completely f**ked up?? And while she wants to set the record straight, the Grammy winner claimed there isn’t “enough time” to go through every rumor:

“I feel like we don’t need to go into any specifics. But of course, there’s an insatiable frustration, inexplicable, hellish feeling with watching people misunderstand the people you love, and you and anything.”

Hmmm. Not going into any specifics isn’t going to help, though. If she was truly innocent, she could at least shut down cheating rumors — which would clear her of a LOT of the hate! Unless, you know, those aren’t just rumors

As for why she’s opening up about this now, it’s because her new album Eternal Sunshine is almost out and she knows the chatter about her love life is only going to get ten times worse — even if it shouldn’t. While joking that the timing of the release amid her controversial romance is “the absolute worst idea,” the Yes, And? singer noted:

“I’m so nervous, because pieces of it touch on things that are real and then pieces of it are also just like…part of the concept. So what is that separation? And it’s so scary to leave it up to these selective memory people to decipher. It’s scary. But I digress. It’s too late. The vinyls have been printed.”

Well, she can’t blame fans for jumping to conclusions if she’s the one who made the purposefully cryptic and misleading songs! Just saying!!
