You go Ariana Grande! The singer just clapped back at an internet troll who accused her of lip syncing, and we are seriously living for her response.
As fans know, the “Dangerous Woman” songstress is in the midst of her Sweetener World Tour. And when she posted a clip to her Instagram account of her slaying one of the performances, a hater replied, “It sounds like autotune and probably not live. I mean you are a great singer and I love your voice and songs but this doesn’t sound live.”
“Naw with all due respect, I could do this in your living from for you, fam, with no sound mixing or help at all,” the 26-year-old fired back. “I could do it on Broadway (and did). I can do it in the shower. In the car. It’s my gift/it’s why I’m here. I sing 30+ songs a night. Every word. It’s my thing. Let me shine, like d–n.”
YAS. As fans know, it hasn’t been the easiest week for Ari. On Friday, August 30, she was forced to cancel her pre-show meet and greet after she suffered a series of panic attacks.
“My depression and anxiety have been at an all-time high lately. I have been giving you all I’ve got and trying to push through as hard as I can and mask it,” she shared on her Instagram Stories. “Today has been an extra rough one. After a handful of panic attacks, I feel like the wisest decision would be to not do soundcheck party or [meet and greet] today and preserve my energy for the show. I don’t want to rush through our time together or seem shaky. I like spending actual time with you and I won’t be able to be present or give you the best of me today. I wish I had control over these attacks but as anybody with anxiety or depression understands, sometimes you can only operate on its terms and not your own.”
We are so proud of Ariana for sticking up for herself.
