Ariana Grande came out as bisexual in a new song with her best friend Victoria Monét. So, understandably, the world is freaking out.
Grande and Monét, who pennese several songs on Grande’s latest album thank u, next together, celebrated their friendship and joint success in a new collab titled Monopoly, which features THE 25-year-old star singing the line: “I like women and men.”
Monét, who is openly bisexual, also raps the lyric.
The track, which dropped on Monday April 1, led to some fans discussing Ari’s sexuality online, which the singer addressed on Twitter.
Responding to a fan comment hinting that Ariana Grande came out as bisexual in her new song, the singer simply said: “I haven’t [label herself] before and still don’t feel the need to now… which is okay.”
This is not the first time Ariana’s sexual preference have made headlines—and not for the right reasons.
While some fans have shown excitement for Grande’s alleged coming out, others are accusing her of consistently exploiting the LGBT+ community, specially after agreeing to be a headline act at the Manchester Pride 2019.
“The LGBTQ community has been so special to me and supportive throughout my entire career,” Ariana tweeted in response to the accusations. “The relationship I have with my LGBTQ fans, friends, and family make me so, so happy. I want to celebrate and support this community, regardless of my identity or how people label me. And also, I want to visit a city that means so much to me.”
So when she said she was dating a girl named Ari? Was she singing about self-love? Or did Grande actually come out as bisexual?
