Ariana Grande stands up against the diva accusation

Ariana Grande is fighting back when it comes to the double standard of being called a "diva"

The 26-year-old Grammy winner tackled being called a "diva" in a new interview with Zane Lowe on Apple Music, and questioned why men are treated differently for the same behaviour.

"For a very long time I stopped doing interviews because I felt like whenever I got into a position where someone would try to say something for clickbait or twist my words or blah, blah, blah, I'd defend myself. And then people would be like, 'Oh, she's a diva.' And I was like, 'This doesn't make sense,'" she told him. "If I have an artistic opinion, or if I direct something, or if I have something to say about a choice made with my career or something, blah, blah, blah, it has always been manipulated and turned into this negative thing in the past, while I don't see it with men."

"It's like when men express their opinions or defend themselves or direct something and make notes about something, they're 'brilliant' and they're 'geniuses'...and yet, it's just not the same thing with women that I hope we can work on fixing."

"That's not always the case of course," Grande clarified. "It's not always that way. But it does make it kind of...it makes you want to calm down a bit. But I'm also trying to say 'f-k that.' You know what I mean? I'm tired of seeing women silenced by it."

While she wants to fight the double standard, the star also acknowledged how it could make you question yourself and your will to express your opinion by having your comments twisted or called out publicly.

"I think there's this thing where we're going to hear something, or be, 'Oh, she's going to say this.' And then it really sits with you. And you feel like, 'Oh wow. Shouldn't I express myself anymore? Shouldn't I have this fight I want to have? Should I just say, okay, and let it be?'"

It's seemingly taken a toll for Grande. "And then it kind of f - ks you up a bit," Lowe told her. "But yeah, it's not a thing all the time, of course. But, it's definitely still prominent. But, I'm just trying to say, 'F-k it,' and let go of that trauma. Because I have a lot to say, and I enjoy talking to people. And I want to do interviews and share with people, and not be afraid to be myself."
