Ariana Grande calls out radio interviewer for sexist questions: ‘You need to brush up on equality’

Hosts of LA radio station Power 106 asked the singer about make-up and emojis rather than music

Ariana Grande criticised a radio interviewer for his misogynistic line of questioning when he asked her about mobile phones, make-up and emojis rather than her music.

The pop singer recently stopped by Los Angeles radio station Power 106 to talk to hosts Justin Credible and Eric D-Lux.

Grande appeared somewhat frustrated after being questioned about things that the interviewers believed “girls like”.


After being told that the unicorn emoji was for girls and that girls look at their phones during dinner, Grande told D-Lux in particular: “You need a little brushing up on equality.”

Earlier this year, Grande penned an essay on sexism following her split with rapper Big Sean. In it, the singer criticised the “misogyny” in the media and said that she is “tired of living in a world where women are mostly referred to as a man’s past, present or future”.

Grande wrote: “If a woman TALKS about sex openly… she is shamed! But if a man talks or RAPS freely about all the women (or more commonly used “bitches” / hoes” … how lovely) he’s had… he is regaled.

“The double standard and misogyny are still ever present. I can’t wait to live in a world where people are not valued by who they’re dating / married to / attached to, having sex with (or not) / seen with… but by who they are as an individual.”


Following the post, various musicians offered their support to Grande, including Taylor Swift who replied “I’m so proud of you, always. But especially today.”
