Ariana Grande: 'Women get attacked for sharing pictures that show confidence'

She says she faces double standards all the time

Most Popular

One of our favourite ever Ariana Grande moments was that mini-essay she wrote on sexism and double standards in the media. It said everything that every female celeb has been thinking for ages, and instantly made Ari one of the most kickass famous feminists in the business.

She's been speaking some wise words on the subject again this week in her most recent interview with Grazia, opening up about the frustrating misogyny that she's faces every day both as a popstar and just as a general female human being, too.

Speaking frankly about why she's so passionate about promoting gender equality, Ariana said: "I'm a woman so I face my fair share of double standards and misogyny and ignorance on a daily basis."

Ariana's proud to say that she's a feminist (as anyone should be), and wants to make sure that we work on eliminating the ridiculous stigma that seems to have attached itself to the term.

"A lot of women think of the stereotype that comes with the word "feminist". But there's not just one type of feminist," Ari said. You can be a feminist who gets their hair and make-up done, you can be a feminist who cuts their hair off and doesn't wear any make-up. Who has lots of sex or who doesn't. There's no limit." WORD.

If you want an example of just why we need celebs like Ariana addressing the topic of feminism, she's more than happy to serve up a plate of reality when it comes to the double standards that women face, famous or not.

"When a young male artist posts a shirtless picture on Instagram the comments will be like "Oh my God, heart eyes, so hot, babe alert!",' she spilled. "Like, whatever. If a woman posts a suggestive photo or anything that expresses her own sexuality or confidence within her body, it's a very different response."
