#ArianaGrande doesn't get why some artists don't take a political stance, fearing for their revenue stream or reputation. "Not everyone is going to agree with you, but that doesn’t mean I’m just going to shut up and sing my songs." https://t.co/y6Rt3n6Lm6— ELLE Magazine (US) (@ELLEmagazine) July 11, 2018
Ariana's interview with Elle Magazine is out. A few key quotes below.
On politics: “Not everyone is going to agree with you, but that doesn’t mean I’m just going to shut up and sing my songs. I’m also going to be a human being who cares about other human beings; to be an ally and use my privilege to help educate people. Instead of unfriending people on Facebook who share different political views, comment! Have a conversation! Try to spread the fucking light.”
On the Manchester attack: “You hear about these things, you see it on the news, you tweet the hashtag. It’s happened before, and it’ll happen again. It makes you sad, you think about it for a little, and then people move on. But experiencing something like that firsthand, you think of everything differently… Everything is different.”
On Nicki Minaj: “That’s a ride-or-die situation. She is the best there is, male or female.”
On anxiety: “When I got home from tour, I had really wild dizzy spells, this feeling like I couldn’t breathe. I would be in a good mood, fine and happy, and they would hit me out of nowhere. I’ve always had anxiety, but it had never been physical before. There were a couple of months straight where I felt so upside down.”
