Ariana Grande Shows Off Being in Her Early Twenties With Realization Her Identity Doesn’t Need a Boyfriend

Ariana Grande posted an essay about not letting her identity be defined by who she’s sleeping with which gives away she’s only 21. It happens to most women in their early twenties, particularly those who don’t work for entertainment magazines. They hit a moment when they realize their identity “don’t require no man (snap, snap, snap)”, leaving the rest of us to think, “yeah, duh.”

Welcome to that world, Ariana, the world of giving no fucks about what people think of your man-life.

“I am tired of living in a world where women are mostly referred to as a man’s past, present or future PROPERTY / POSSESSION. I… do not. belong. to anyone. but myself. and neither do you.”

Sans insane grammatical style, that is a great statement. To be fair though, since you were referencing your relationship with Big Sean, you were arguably the less famous person in the situation. You should know the equation is, the least famous person becomes the more famous person’s ex/current significant other; those are just the rules of being pop-culturally relevant, that and you have to wear makeup to the gym. But, I get it, I get it, it’s a relationship, not an ownership; we’re on the same page.

“I have clearly not been having the boy questions in my interviews lately because I have come to the realization that I have SO. MUCH. MORE. to talk about. I’m currently making the best music I’ve ever made in my life, having the best time of my life on tour with some of the greatest people I’ve ever known, working my ass off every single day, performing / creating for my babes and getting the chance to meet and hug my babes all over the world every day.”

Well, it deserves to be said sex and relationships are an interesting topic because they’re slightly more relatable than traveling the world to sing for your adoring fans. I mean, if I sold tickets to a world tour, who would show up? My mom? Actually, yeah if it was convenient; she loves me.

But again, I get it, girl, I get it. You talk about what you want to those interviewers! Though you have to remember, since you want women’s liberation to happen, you’re gonna have to make it happen.

“If a woman has a lot of sex (or any sex for that matter)…. she’s a ‘slut’. If a man has sex….. HE’S. A. STUD. a BOSSSSSS. a KING. If a woman even 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. If a woman is seen with a friend with a penis, there is an immediate assumption of romance or sex and she is labeled!! If a man is seen with a woman… his status is elevated / celebrated. ‘AWW SHIIIT HE SMASHED!!!1!!1!’.”

Girl, you have to become your own woman boss! It’s not the walk of shame, it’s the stride of pride! Own your sexuality, become the women’s lib you want to see! Deny the double standard for yourself and inspire others! Also, stop using so many dots in your ellipses, they have three dots; you’re making me crazy.

The pinnicle moment of Grande’s essay was the finishing Gloria Steinem quote:

“Any woman who chooses to behave like a full human being should be warned that the armies of the status quo will treat her as something of a dirty joke.. She will need her sisterhood.”

A statement conveying exactly what Grande had to say with better grammar, yet still a two dot ellipses. Basically TL;DR, join the coalition; you are woman, hear you roar.
