Queerbaiting her LGBT fans and sparking all the “YAAAAAAS bisexual queen Ariana!” rumors was the smartest thing she could do in the middle of all this controversy, so props to her PR team for that lol 

 

I haven't seen much negativity about it honestly and it surprised me so much especially when she was this close to getting #cancelled by twitter! Can't believe she was able to dodge it so easily

Yeah same here, I really became a fan during the Dangerous Woman era (post Manchester).

I’d personally rank the albums: Dangerous Woman > My Everything > thank u, next > Sweetener > Yours Truly 

I say for me Yours Truly is last because it had the least amount of songs I liked. My favorites from that album are probably Right There and You’ll Never Know.

When it comes to Dangerous Woman ugh I love every single song but Knew Better/Forever Boy is my favorite :alpacacrush:

 

the only songs i love from yours truly are the way and tattooed heart. i think knew better/forever boy is one of her best songs up to date, along w leave me lonely.

i love sweetener so much bc its just filled with positivity that was much needed for me at that time lol (and the songs are bops) so idk why ppl disliked my comment about the album ranking lol

i understand why ppl are pissed, but her intention wasn't queerbaiting. the music video is about self love and in the end ariana is kissing ariana, not another girl lol 

ariana hasn't said anything about her sexuality and she doesn't need to, but the same thing happened to rita ora (i think), ppl were coming for her for queerbaiting and basically forced her to come out after that lmao so idk

from her songs that attempt to speak to "bigger topics" it seems like she has the bare minimum understanding of society/politics like she gets her news from headlines on fb and twitter lol

A bit OT but the situation that happened with Rita Ora is in a different ballpark in my opinion. The song she was on was called "Girls"  and some of her lines were under the gist of "I'll kiss this girl and he can watch, etc". The whole song itself was seemed to play into the sterotype of bisexual/lesbian women, most that bisexual women are cheaters and sex crazed. Of course not all bisexual people think alike but a lot of fans didn't appreciate the sentiment. Hayley Kiyoko caught wind of the song and explained how that can be a damaging narrative since lesbian/bi women are usually fetishized for straight men. It then came out that Rita didn't write that part herself and she apologized. The song itself was her coming out though.

I don't think Ariana intended it to be that way but it could be that way. Even if the people who say she may be queerbaiting could be wrong, they're allowed to feel that way. I don't think people are reaching into a top hat and pulling out anything they can just to say something bad about Ariana. 

I remember going onto her tag on tumblr and a lot of her fans were "applauding" her for being a representation for being bisexual. You know, the whole "bisexual queen" and some fans calling it a "queer anthem". So I believe that's where a lot of people are coming from when talking about the issue at hand. Not that some people are misinterpting the video.

I hope that made sense.

The kiss happened (barely) in like the last 5 secs of the video... so what profit really? It's not like the whole video was about the kiss. I mean I see where people are coming from but like this is making it so much more dramatic than it really is, boring.

are gay/lesbian people mad or is it straight people being mad for them? (Twitter always does this, so I'm just wondering. Its like non-poc freaking out over issues that poc wouldn't think about, ya know?)

I'm part of the lgbtq community and I'm not offended or anything, its not like this is "I kissed a girl" by Katy Perry. Katy doing that was like "hehe im so quirky i kissed a girl i shouldnt have done that ^.^" but Ariana is just acting in a music video. Like... I don't know why its an issue. If anything it's normalizing it...? My younger ~questioning~ self would be relieved that she did that because I was always surrounded by guys thinking lesbian/bisexual girls are just an accessory for a porn video, instead of real people that can find beauty and love within each other. Madonna kissed Britney and Christina Aguilera on stage, is that an outrage? I just feel out of the loop, like should I be mad?? Hahhahaha

 if you don’t find anything wrong then that’s fine. if other people find it wrong that’s fine too. what’s considered problematic amongst people varies from person to person. no one is saying you HAVE to be mad but for those who are just respect their stance y’know?
