Politics / Social Issues
If you are like me you are in your thirties, you dig politics, you don’t live under a rock, and you had to ask yourself this week “Who the heck is Ariana Grande?” For those of you who do live under a rock, much was made this week of the young pop singer when she was filmed on camera licking a donut and uttering the words “I hate Americans. I hate America.” Awesome. Well, I had to look up who this newest Britney Spears wannabe actually is, and in doing so, I found out some interesting facts. What are Ariana Grande’s politics? Read on.
Ariana claims she’s only hating on Americans’ eating habits and not on the country itself. Apparently she is a healthy food freak. I wonder if she owns stock in Whole Foods.
“What I said in a private moment with my friend, who was buying the donuts, was taken out of context and I am sorry for not using more discretion with my choice of words,” Grande said. “As an advocate for healthy eating, food is very important to me and I sometimes get upset by how freely we as Americans eat and consume things without giving any thought to the consequences that it has on our health and society as a whole.”
“The fact that the United States has the highest child obesity rate in the world frustrates me. We need to do more to educate ourselves and our children about the dangers of overeating and the poison we put in our bodies,” she continued. “We need to demand more from our food industry.”
That’s not all. There is a more political side to Ariana Grande than just hating on us sugar addicts. She was also involved with a group called Kids Who Care that performed shows and such for charity. Aside from this, she was active in boycotting SeaWorld after seeing the film BlackFish. It was around this time that she became a vegan.
Ariana Grande also has a strong position on the homosexuality issue. Her brother, Frankie, is gay and Ariana has publicly supported him and the LGBT community as a whole. She even left Christianity for Kabbalah, whatever that is.
I haven’t been able to find in my research what political party, if any, she affiliates with. Given what I’ve learned about her, she’s either a Communist or a left-leaning young woman who had the misfortune of being filmed saying something stupid about America on the eve of its birthday. Kudos to you, Ariana. At least now I know who you are. Some advice: don’t shave your head, don’t have kids with Kevin Federline, and if you do have kids with Kevin Federline, don’t let them sit on your lap while you drive your car.
