Ariana Grande’s Feelings Were Really Hurt When Everyone Called Her a Diva, So She Called Miley Cyrus for Comfort
Grande spoke with The Mirror, saying, “I was upset and I contacted Miley. I said, ‘Miley, I’m so sad – what do I do? This isn’t true. My heart is broken, I feel so bad.”
And what did Cyrus, who knows a thing or two about a bad press cycle, tell Grande? “She was like, ‘Girl, don’t even look at it. Just be happy that you’re blessed. You have family and friends love you, you have fans that love you who know what’s true and what’s not.” Great advice.
Whether or not Grande is a “diva,” she does make a good point about double standards in the music industry:
“If you see a woman working hard who is successful – who doesn’t stop until she reaches her goal, who is strong and has wishes and dreams she wants to fulfill, and works hard every day – you label them a diva. But if you see a man doing that, you’re like, ‘He’s incredible, he’s an amazing businessman.'”
The moral of the story is that maybe we should all stop calling Grande a diva, at least until she’s accused of wishing death on her fans again.
