Ariana Grande defends Kesha, speaks out about industry's
We must say: We're loving Ariana Grande more and more these days. Why? Because she isn't afraid to speak her mind. And most of what she says is actually quite inspirational and empowering. 

Chatting with Carson Daly on his radio show, Grande took a moment to defend Kesha and speak out about the injustices that come with being a female in the music industry.
 
“I love Kesha. I worked with her when I was a lot younger. We’ve been friends. I support her regardless of what is going on,” Grande began. “The incredible double standards that we face on a daily basis, in the industry and just in the world, it’s shocking. I would be so amused—and pardon me if this comes across as sexist—but I don’t think a male artist would be in this position right now. Sorry.”

“If I’m speaking out about something that I’m passionate about, I’m willing to take the brunt for fighting for what I believe in," she concluded. "And my fellow women are definitely something that I will always be one of the first to speak up about.”

YUS!
