Ariana Grande: 'Sexuality in Art Not Invitation for Disrespect'

She makes it clear that language like that towards women is simply not OK.

Grande detailed the incident in a post describing the incident which went down while she and her boyfriend, Mac Miller, were out picking up some food.

Ariana Grande has publicly rebuked a man who made her feel "sick and objectified".

Writing about the experience in a post on her Twitter account on Wednesday, Grande said the ordeal had left her feeling "quiet and hurt". Things like happen all the time and are the kinds of things that contribute to women's sense of fear and inadequacy.

"I am not a piece of meat that a man gets to [utilise] for his pleasure".

Grande's excitement at encountering one of Mac Miller's young fans quickly evaporated; she felt "sick and objectified".

She added that it breaks her heart to see so many young people using these phrases with each other and "objectifying women with such ease".

Grande spoke out about the incident, she said, because "most women know the sensation of being spoken about in an uncomfortable way publicly or taken advantage of publicly by a man". Back when she hosted Saturday Night Live in March, she joined cast members like Aidy Bryant and Kate McKinnon performing "This Is Not a Feminist Song", singing lyrics like, "This is not a feminist song, 'cause we were scared we would do it wrong" in a video that has nearly 3 million views on YouTube.

The past year may have been awful for many, but there's at least one person who will look back on 2016 positively: Ariana Grande. Instead of showing support for her, some of her social media followers blamed the singer herself for the disrespectful fan's action. "Seeing a lot of 'but look how you portray yourself in videos and in your music! you're so sexual!'. please hold. next tweet. i repeat", she wrote. The pop star even received an important message of solidarity from her her mother, Joan Grande.

Grande capped the missive with one last truth about the women who men try to diminish or demean: "We are not objects or prizes".
