Ariana Grande And “Feminist Mama” Call Out Women’s And Men’s Magazines (PIC)
Ariana Grande is calling out women’s magazines, as well as men’s, for catering to stereotypes about gender.
On Sunday, Grande’s mother Joan tweeted a photo of a newsstand with separate displays for “Women’s Interest” and “Men’s Interest” (see below). The former included magazines like Star, Shape, and InStyle, while the latter had GQ, Esquire, and Muscle & Fitness. “What’s wrong with this picture??” asked Joan.
Grande replied to her mom, “Oh! so women are only interested in tabloids & if I want to read about cars, business, science I have to go to the MEN’S section?” She went on, “And I know mannnnnnnny men who are going to the magazine section for a Cosmo or Vogue or an Elle!” The singer added, “Ugh.. I love u my outspoken, feminist mama. #EveryonesInterests #MenReadCosmoAndVogue #WomenReadForbesAndRobbReport.”
Joan was pleased by the response. “And I love you my daughter @arianagrande who is as outraged at injustice and inequality! #ProudMama,” she responded. She also wrote to her 200,000-plus followers, who no doubt include Grande’s fans, “So proud, so many of you got my point! It’s 2015, this must stop, awareness is the only way. I may just want to read about yachting or cars!”
The exchange seemed to spark a series of tweets from Grande about related issues. She later wrote, “If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t. say. it. Respect 1 another. body boundaries! celebrate our differences & stop shaming them.” The star went on to post “Dear world, more love pls” and “Dear world, more compassion, niceness, encouragement, less judgement, intolerance, labeling bull[expletive] pls.”
“Some extra love to those who need it today….. loveee u,” she concluded. Grande and her mom are pictured above at the “Ari By Ariana Grande” fragrance launch last month. TELL US: What do you think of their tweets about women’s and men’s magazines?
