Ariana Grande Deserves More Than You Blaming Her For Every Problem Ever

Look, I'm not trying to stir the pot, but uh...consider it stirred.

Ariana Grande

Ariana Grande was assaulted. This poor girl did nothing to warrant this. All she wanted to do was pay her RESPECTS to an iconic woman, but instead, she gets groped by a bishop. Then she gets accused of "asking for it" by wearing a black dress to a funeral? I don't even know where to start.

Look, I don't wanna seem like a bitch...actually yes I do. That is SICK. No man has a right to touch her without her consent. I cannot fathom how in the hell the entire world doesn't agree that this is 100% the fault of the bishop...


Ariana Grande is taking heat for choosing to wear a black dress to a memorial for an iconic woman...disrespectful. There is video footage of this man massaging her breast while in front of a huge crowd of people, and you can see her actively trying to stop what is happening without causing a scene, and you can see the discomfort on her face.

Why the hell is there not more being said about this horror? Ariana has been through enough in the past year, she doesn't need to be groped for doing her job, that's not her thing. And she sure as shit doesn't deserve to be assaulted by some "man of the cloth" who can't control his nasty urges long enough to deliver a speech that Aretha Franklin would have approved of.

Look, I'm not trying to stir the pot, but uh...consider it stirred. She deserves more than some half-assed, insincere apology while he goes about his merry way, with no intent to change any form of behavior. This is 2018, and that man has committed a terrible offense against women.

He was given clear indication via her many attempts to remove herself from his reach, and continuous grabbing at his hand to get him to stop. And yet, somehow it's her fault? How on earth is her outfit the reason for this disrespectful behavior? Whatever happened to the "Come as you are" crap that churches all over have been preaching for years?

And like, this isn't even the first shitty thing Ariana has gone through. She's had a lifetime of hardships to face as a person, and the terrorist attack at her show in Manchester, remember that? The girl is still suffering from that experience too. And now, days after her ex-boyfriend is found dead, she is being accused of causing it for wanting to be happy.

When does it end? When will people stop blaming the world's problems on this poor girl? So maybe, just maybe, we should stop focusing on the girl's dress, and focus more on her heart, because if it isn't broken already, we are doing a damn good job of trying to break it. And the world doesn't need another broken spirit.

The world needs hope, which Ariana's music can provide for millions of people if we stop assaulting her and belittling her every time she leaves her house. She has been through enough.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.


Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.

With the dawn of social media comes an entirely new character: the Facebook politician. Usually, articles or posts about politics are fairly sporadic. That is until a major event happens. Suddenly, everyone knows everything about everything. Everyone seems to have a very strong opinion. Everyone is super knowledgeable, and what better vessel of information than they themselves? Which is pretty reasonable, given that people’s emotions run high when something major happens. And I don’t blame them, emotions are good!

The Gift Of Basketball

The NBA playoffs remind me of my basketball journey through time

Syracuse Basketball

I remember that when I was very little, my dad played in an adult basketball league, and I remember cheering him on with everything in me. I also remember going to Tuscola basketball games when the old floor was still there and the bleachers were still wooden. I remember always wanting to play basketball like my dad, and that's just what I did.

Plus Size Appreciation: How I Learned To Love My Body

Because it is okay to not be "skinny."


In America, we tend to stick up our noses at certain things that aren't the norm. For example, people who are overweight, or the politically correct term “obese." Men and women who are overweight get so much backlash because they are not skinny or "in shape," especially, African-American women, who are typically known for having wider hips and thicker thighs. Robert Darryl, an African-American filmmaker, explains the overall intention of the body mass index in his follow-up sequel, “America the Beautiful 2: The Thin Commandments."
