Ariana Grande is angry about being labelled the 'property of a man' or women in general being 'shamed' when they are seen with men in any setting and she is letting the world know about it.
The popular recording artist and singer recently posted a feminist manifesto on her social media Twitter page after the British tabloid "The Sun" asked if she was dating One Direction singer Niall Horan after she was seen leaving his house (Billboard - June 12). She made it clear in her Twitter post that she is angry about her being defined by the men she might date and that she is very successful and happy as a single woman and this has enhanced her popularity on social media.
Interestingly, following her rant she rose to the number one place of the Social 50 chart with ranks the most popular artists on social media and has become the 'golden girl' for feminists young and old (Billboard Magazine - June 11).
For some entertainment fans it is a very interesting situation because she has always been popular with young women and now she is receiving the support of more 'mature' women who love her stance but there is a risk as some of her 'female' fans have noted in social media conversations.
She is loved by many women and men but her recent rant does not just hit out at the media but also at men. While there is no debate that women are the majority at most of her concerts an aspect that this young talented actress is forgetting is that a large number of the people who are watching her videos on their computers and visiting her social media pages are young men and some of her biggest supporters are the media who celebrate her spectacular singing and acting achievements.
The "Scream Queens" actress has the entertainment industry buzzing with how she has 'connected' with her female fans and made many new 'feminist' fans but sometimes when a female 'slaps the hand' of the media and some male admirers they don't immediately say 'thank you' even though she might be correct in her comments.
Ariana Grande, an artist whose popularity is skyrocketing with women of all ages because of her feminist stance and will likely bring more not less scrutiny on her personal and career, an interesting development to a complaint about media attention devoted to her.
