Ariana Grande was pretty upset last night after her fans attacked her on Twitter for wishing Marilyn Monroe a happy birthday. While it seemed like a pretty harmless post, some fans are concerned with how much of an inspiration Marilyn is to the "Problem" singer since she died from a drug overdose.
In response to the backlash, Ariana totally freaked out. "I adore [Marilyn's] work and have compassion for her inner sadness that she covered up on a daily basis that a--holes like you made her feel in the first place!!" she wrote.

"so much hate for celebrating Marilyn’s spirit on her birthday. I adore her work and have compassion for her inner sadness that she covered up on a daily basis that a--holes like you made her feel in the first place!! judging her for her wildly rumored personal life (which is truly no one else’s business) is only a distraction from her talent, beauty, comedic genius and effervescent spirit…. it always breaks my heart to see people say such terrible things about people they’ve never met / don’t really know the one hundred percent truth about. so today, I choose to celebrate the beautiful parts of marilyn. we should only and always focus on the beautiful things… because what we focus on expands….. which is why I feel for the people who focus on hate…. because that’s all you have to give. and I truly do feel sorry for you because when you’ve been dead for 50 some odd years…… nobody will be wishing you a happy birthday.”
