The video and song “Monopoly” dropped on Monday night, a duet between Grande and her best friend, songwriter, and frequent collaborator Victoria Monét. The song includes a line that both artists sing, “I like women and men (yeah).” Later, however, Grande sings the line by herself, a move that had many fans wondering if she’s confirming that she's bisexual.
One fan wrote, “Ariana ain’t gotta label herself, but she said what she said.”
“I haven’t before and still don’t feel the need to now,” Grande replied, adding, “which is OK.”
Monét, however, came out as bisexual last November. She tweeted, “After coming out, this Thanksgiving coulda went waaaay left!! But she love meeeee how I am and I’m so happy.”
Grande is currently on her first Sweetener World Tour, which kicked off in mid-March. Last Monday also marked the six-year anniversary of her first track with Mac Miller, titled “The Way.” The singer was visibly emotional while singing “Thank U, Next” at her Washington D.C. stop. In a post to her Instagram stories before the show, Grande paid tribute to the anniversary of “The Way” by writing “six years” on a black background with an image of a white heart.
