Why I Don't Buy Ariana's Ploy For A Minute

I don't like her and nothing you say is going to change that and it isn't because she "hates Americans."

Recently I made a comment about how even though I don't particularly care for Ariana Grande, I was glad that she was trying to raise the spirits of the people in Manchester who were injured at her concert. I thought it was great that she was trying to help these people. I had said "Even though I don't really like Ariana Grande because she is a brat who doesn't know how to properly treat others, I am glad that she worked with Miley Cyrus to bring this concert about" or something like that. I didn't mention anything about her hating Americans or America.

There was nothing that could have even come across that way. I dislike this woman because she, on countless occasions, has done horrible things that I didn't have any interest in supporting. I don't love her music and I don't care about the things she's said--even though a lot of what she has said is also abhorrent, no. I care more about how she has acted. There have been many times where she has acted like a child even though she was a teenager. I have no taste for back-stabbing-divas who only cause drama. THIS is why I dislike Ariana Grande, not because of some stupid thing she said about hating Americans and America.

To my friend who thought that was the problem I had with her:

I am sorry that you think that is the reason behind how I feel towards this diva and that it is a solid enough reason to try and tell me that I am at fault here and need to ask for forgiveness.

I am in full support of wanting to love everyone, but I am not in full support of a diva who probably wouldn't have given her fans the time of day had that bomb not gone off at her concert. The way I see it because it went off there, she took it as a chance to look good (which is what she's always looking for) because now she will be so much more popular because of this occurrence.

I want to see her help people outside of just this small instance, if that happens, then yes--I will need to change my views on her. But if she goes back to being the same spoiled, bratty child that she has been for years, then I honestly have no issue with keeping how I view her the same.

She never treated people with respect and kindness before this. She backstabbed her co-workers on her show that she claims was one of the worst things she ever did, she is consistently ignoring the rules of live television and treating the interviewers horribly, she licked donuts and put them back in a restaurant knowing that other people would buy them (DISGUSTING), and, most appalling of all, she wished that all of her fans would die.

If anything, Ariana Grande has a LOT of things that need to be made up for. It is hard to like someone who has done so many nasty, bratty, selfish, and immature things in her life while ignoring all of the good that she could do with her popularity.

But that's just me. Let Ariana speak for herself. I don't like her and nothing you say is going to change that and it isn't because she "hates Americans."

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
