I'm not exactly sure what a "Piers Morgan" is, but here we are.
Wednesday afternoon, Ariana Grande intervened via tweet after the British TV host delivered some definitely-not-needed comments on Little Mix and their racy promo images. As expected, the comments in question were wholly dumb in nature, and even included Morgan's assertion that Ellen DeGeneres is a "hypocrite." Furthermore, they were made in response to Ariana's mother Joan.
Grande defended both DeGeneres and Little Mix, closing out the response with a nod to her new single "Thank U, Next."
"[I] look forward to the day you realize there are other ways to go about making yourself relevant than to criticize young, beautiful, successful women for everything they do," Grande said later, adding that such a change in mindset could be a "beautiful thing" for his career "or what's left of it."
Morgan has since responded by bragging about the tweets making his name a worldwide trend, inviting Grande for an on-air interview, and defending his career. Anyway, that's enough Morgan for a lifetime. Moving on:
The surprise-released, meme-spawning "Thank U, Next" became Grande's first Billboard Hot 100 No. 1. In the days since bagging a top spot debut, Grande has been teasing the track's recently wrapped video featuring quite an assortment of romantic comedy titans.
