Let’s give it up for girl power! After posting a feminist essay online, Ariana Grande is getting some serious support from another pop diva. Yep, Selena Gomez showed the ‘Problem’ singer some major love on social media!
After declaring to the world that she doesn’t belong to any man — through an emotional essay uploaded to Instagram — Ariana Grande, 21, was echoed with praise from her legions of Arianators. One surprising fan? None other than Selena Gomez, 22! The “I Want You To Know” songstress sent out a sweet message to Miss Grande, making it known that she agrees 100% with her ideas about boys. Read on to see what she said!
“Thank you @ArianaGrande for telling them you don’t belong to nobody but you. Finally. Preach girl,” Selena wrote for all her 29.7 million Twitter followers to see. In case you’re unfamiliar with what Sel is referring to, let’s catch you up to speed!
Following her breakup from Big Sean, 27, Ariana let it be known that no one owns her — as she explained in a powerful letter to her fans on June 7. It was a response to talk surrounding this recent quote of hers: “A girl can be friends with someone with a d**k and not hop on it.”
“Being ’empowered’…. is not the same as being a ‘bitch’…” Ariana said in the essay. “HAVING SOMETHING TO SAY…. is not the same as HAVING A BAD ATTITUDE. What I meant when I said what I said about not being Sean’s ex is that 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.”
These are opinions that Selena is obviously down with — as are we. Now if only we could get in on the blossoming BFF-ship between these two girls…#FriendshipGoals, people!
During a chat with with Sun on Sunday, Ariana reiterated her point, saying, “I’m tired of needing to be linked to a guy, I’m not Big Sean’s ex, I’m not Niall [Horan’s] new possible girl. I’m Ariana Grande.” You say it, sista!
Despite the recent romance rumors between One Direction star Niall and Ariana, the 21-year-old insists she’s single and couldn’t be more thrilled about it! “I’m saying this after literally 8 years of feeling like I constantly had to have a boy by my side,” she added. “After being on my own now for a few months I am realizing that that’s just not the case… I have never felt more present, grounded, and satisfied. I’ve never laughed harder or had more fun or enjoyed my life more.”
Is Selena just as happy without her beloved ex-beau, Justin Bieber, 21, these days? We sure hope she’s taking Ariana’s lead!
