Following the immediate virality of comments made in response to idiotic journalists' insistence on prodding female artists for relationship scoops, Ariana Grande took to Twitter to expound on the sentiment — posting the following letter, which should certainly make you a Grande fan if you weren't already:

Grande's original comments — specifically the highly quotable but obviously true “Believe it or not, women can be friends with people with dicks and not hop on them." — inspired the usual social media frenzy one would expect, though it's inspiring to see Grande capitalize on that attention by doubling down on her assessment of male-centric media practices.
