Don’t let the ponytail fool you.
Ariana Grande is not one to hold her tongue these days – and we’re not just talking donuts.
During an interview with Ryan Seacrest today, the budding diva took aim at the powerful media mogul when he asked a question relating to a romantic picture she posted on Instagram with rumored lover Mac Miller.
More on what went down after the jump, including a telling clip…
After being presented with the question, Ari fired back…
“Oh, is that what I did? Is that what Instagram means to you now? All right world, let’s go.”
“Well, I don’t know. I’m asking” Seacrest replied.
“What are you asking? You said a sentence, there was no question,” Grande hissed back. “I don’t know man, good morning On Ryan Seacrest…it’s too early for this kind of tea. It’s too early, man.”
To his credit, Seacrest insisted that her posting the pic ultimately opened the door for that line of inquiry.
Still irked, Grande added…
“If I post something, then that’s what I’m willing to share at the moment. That doesn’t mean that you, Ryan Seacrest, with millions of listeners, are entitled to more information.”
Here’s the pic in question…
We love Ariana, but she needs to have an arena of seats.
It’s clear she’s trying to shed her good girl image and take a sharp left down Bad Girl Boulevard – and we’re all for it. But in this instance, her rationale was wrong.
As an interviewer and seasoned media veteran, it’s Ryan’s job to ask questions of this ilk – especially when it was Ari who shared the snap with her 84 million followers.
Looking at the sales of ‘Dangerous Woman,’ she could and should be making friends in as many corners as possible – not losing them. Especially powerful ones like Ryan.
A major misstep.
