Shout-outs to Strong Women
Ariana is all about encouraging female empowerment.
on her mother
“My mom owns a company that designs and manufactures marine communication equipment. Talk about a woman in power! I’ve learned about the double standards women face from watching her. She’s my biggest supporter, but if I was like, ‘I’m done,’ she’d say, ‘Okay, let’s teach you how to be an engineer.’”
on nicki minaj
“Literally, the things I would do for Nicki Minaj! I adore her as an artist but even more so as a person. She’s very real. I could tell her about anything and she’d be ready to listen.”
“I have the utmost respect for that woman. I love her with every ounce of my being, and not just because of her ability to outlast the blatant bullying and bullshit that she’s had to put up with or because I’m obsessed with her entire discography. I’m so inspired by her bravery and her strength. I can look at her and not be scared to be strong.”
