Ariana Grande’s feminist Twitter proclamation has been met with loud support from other stars, including Taylor Swift and Rita Ora.
On Sunday, Grande posted a Twitter manifesto after she had been quoted in British tabloid the Sun saying, “A girl can be friends with someone with a d— and not hop on it.”
She was responding to rumors that she and One Direction star Niall Horan were seeing each other after she was spotted leaving his house at 3 a.m. In her Twitter response, she talked about her former relationship with rapper Big Sean, saying that she is “tired of living in a world where women are mostly referred to as a man’s past, present or future PROPERTY / POSSESSION.”
Taylor Swift highlighted Grande’s quoting of feminist Gloria Steinem in her message of support.
A slew of supportive tweets also appeared from fans, fellow pop stars like Rita Ora, and Grande’s mom, Joan.
It wasn’t only Grande’s Twitter “sisterhood” that applauded her. Her older brother Frankie and her talent manager, Scooter Braun, also expressed their pride in her outspokenness.
