Ariana Grande’s new song sparks queerbaiting controversy

Ariana Grande says she doesn’t like to label her sexuality after some people were skeptical about her new song’s bisexual lyrics.

Grande released “Monopoly” with her friend and singer/songwriter Victoria Monét. In the song, Grande and Monét both sing the lyric “I like women and men (yeah).” Grande also sings the line by herself later in the song.

Monét came out as bisexual in November 2018 tweeting “After coming out, this thanksgiving coulda went waaaay left!! But she love meeeee how I am and I’m so happy.”

A source told People that Grande “is of course a well-known LGBT ally and this is her supporting her friends.”

Grande expressed on Twitter that she doesn’t feel the need to label her sexuality.

Monét backed up her friend by telling a fan Grande “said what she said” on the song.

Some fans were glad Grande was being open with them about her sexuality.

Others felt Grande wasn’t talking about her own sexuality in the song but was queerbaiting.
