The Pop prince MNEK is sticking up for the Italian superstar Ariana Grande.
Find out why below…
Grande is set to perform at this year’s Manchester Gay Pride event to support her new set ‘Thank You, Next’ and has faced claims that she is exploiting the LGBTQ community to sell records.

can ariana grande understand that by having a cishet white woman headline a pride festival and jacking up the prices, they are exploiting the lgbtq community solely for her performance? she might have accepted with good intentions but she also could have refused to play unless

She used this statement to ease her critics’ fears.
Then MNEK weighed in the matter.
everyone leave ariana alone. she’s headlining the festival cos she’s that bitch, and the gays love her- it’s really not that deep.
