Ariana Grande has one thing to say to people who feel the need to comment on their clothes: Thank you, next. On Wednesday, Grande defended his right to use his sexuality. for her career advantage, after Piers Morgan criticized her and the British group Little Mix for embracing their bodies and their sexuality. The singer began training with Morgan on social media after her mother, Joan Grande, criticized the disrespectful comments of the television presenter. on a recent photo of Little Mix, which showed the singers naked, with insults painted on their bodies. In response, Morgan said the group uses its "nudity" to sell records, "as their own daughter does."
From there, Grande intervened to defend her decisions and her right to show all the skin she wants, as well as the fact that women can have multiple dimensions. "I use my talent And my sexuality all the time because I choose" Grande wrote on Twitter. "Women can be sexually talented, naked and worthy, it's OUR choice, and we'll keep fighting until people understand, I say this with due respect, but thank you, next time."
She continued: "also @piersmorgan, I look forward to the day when you realize that there are other ways to make yourself relevant than to criticize young, beautiful and successful women for everything they do. I think that will be something beautiful for you and your career or what's left of it. "
The singer of "Thank U, Next" also We send a message of support to Little Mix. – and its members, Perrie Edwards, Jade Thirlwall, Jesy Nelson and Leigh-Anne Pinnock – in a separate tweet, encouraging them to "keep fighting the divas … your sisters support you".
Grande also made a point to call Morgan's hypocrisy by sharing a photo of a session in which he posed almost nothing for an advertising campaign. (Morgan recently shared the photo on his own Twitter page, along with a link to an article he wrote for International Men's Day.
"When you do it, it's fine though, right?" Great returned the fire in Morgan.

Their fight on social networks with Morgan is far from the first time that Grande has responded to the "double standard" of criticizing women for showing their appearance and has shown their support for gender equality. In September, during her BBC special, the singer revealed that she does not consider herself a "perfect" model, and that she is happy to let her fans see the real one, and all the ups and downs that entails.
"If I'm going to be a role model, the last thing that should be is perfect, because that's not realistic," Grande told BBC host Davina McCall, according to People. "As long as I'm honest and genuine and I share my true self with my fans, that's the best I can do, because that allows them to do the same."
And although some critics, including Morgan, feel that their position as a role model means they should cover more, Grande said. Billboard in 2016, he considers that this mentality is reductive. "If you're going to love how sexy a male artist looks without his shirt, and a woman decides to put on her panties or show her tits for a photo shoot, she needs to be treated with the same fear and admiration," declared Grande. I'll say it until I'm an older woman with my tits at Whole Foods, I'll be in the product aisle, naked at 95, with a sensitive ponytail, a lock of hair on my head and a Chanel tie. I see you there with my 95 dogs. "
A month before, after the release in April 2016 of her music video "Dangerous Woman", Grande responded to a critical comment from Facebook with a similar sentiment, writing: "When will people stop feeling offended by women who show their skin / express your sexuality? shirts off / express your sexuality on stage, in videos, on Instagram, in any place you want … All .The .Time.The double standard is so boring and exhausting.With all due respect, I think it's time to take your head off your ass, women can love their bodies too !!
And Grande is determined to make sure that women around the world know that they should be able to introduce themselves, but they feel more secure, and if she has a problem with that, Grande already has an answer prepared for you. Thanks, then, in fact.
