Ariana Grande is not shy when it comes to expressing her views, and while the singer's outspoken ways have landed her in trouble in the past, more often, Ariana has been praised for speaking out on a wide range of important issues.
Such as ...
Yesterday, Ari took to Instagram to share a screenshot from the account of some dumbass who felt the need to share his unfavorable view of her body on social media:
"Was asked if I'd prefer @ArielWinter1 or @ArianaGrande," wrote the idiot.
"Lol, it wud definitely by Ariel Winter curves are sexy sticks aren't"
Fortunately, Ariana is not one to quietly back down, and she went off on the dude on her own IG page:
"Sigh …. tweets, comments, statement like this are not okay," the singer wrote.
"About anyone!!! We live in a day and age where people make it IMPOSSIBLE for women, men, anyone to embrace themselves exactly how they are."
"Diversity is sexy! Loving yourself is sexy! "You know what is NOT sexy? Misogyny, objectifying, labeling, comparing and body shaming!!!
"Talking about people's body's as if they're on display ASKING for your approval / opinion. THEY ARE NOT!!!!"
"CELEBRATE YOURSELF. CELEBRATE OTHERS. The things that make us different from one another make us BEAUTIFUL. BODY BOUNDARIES."
"LOVE LOVE LOVE ONLY."
She's preaching to the choir, it turns out.
Ariel Winter's breast reduction surgery recently made headlines, and she too has spoken up about the difficulty of coming of age as a young woman in the public eye.
Perhaps not surprisingly, she saw the comment and spoke out in support of Grande:
"Thank you @ArianaGrande," the Modern Family star tweeted.
"Women should empower one another. Celebrate each other - you're all beautiful."
While we're just as excited as Ariana is about her upcoming tour with Justin Bieber, we're even more excited about a a generation of pop stars and actresses who have zero interest in the body competition that's too often accepted in Hollywood.
