Ariana Grande has a stern message for all those naysayers bashing Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber: Get a life!
In an interview with Reuters, the 20-year-old singer is vehemently defending her fellow pop stars from all the flak they've been taking lately in the media and among those who just don't appreciate Miley's controversial VMAs performance or Justin's globe-trotting antics, including his handiwork with a spray can.
On the twerk queen, Grande said about Cyrus: "She's an adult. She can do whatever the hell she wants. Honestly."
After praising her for looking gorgeous, Ari then launched into a rant about what she strongly feels is peoples' misplaced fixation on the "We Can't Stop" crooner.
"She's having so much fun. If her choices aren't for you, don't look at it, like, move on, talk about something else," said Grande. "Worry about bettering your life, not hers. She's fine. Her life is the best that could be right now. You know, that's what bothers me about society and people. It's like, shut up. Shut up!"
As for Bieber, despite the fact the 19-year-old teen idol was charged for vandalism for tagging graffiti on a Rio de Janeiro building among other bad headlines of late, the Sam & Cat star excused such naughty behavior as something kids his age just do.
"He can do whatever he wants. He's doing the same thing as every other boy in the world, you know. He's just under a microscope and scrutinized by people who don't know him," she added." I know him and he's a good person. He really is. He's a nice person. And everybody's like, ugh, never mind. But he's a good guy and he doesn't deserve what he's going through."
Of course, you might say Grande is a little biased considering she couldn't resist letting all the Beliebers in on the fact that the Biebs kissed her on the cheek. In August, the Victorious actress posted a twitpic of the intimate moment and then, just like that, seemingly deleted it. But Grande, who's in a relationship with The Wanted singer Nathan Sykes, dismissed at the time any notion the two were an item.
"Everyone, girls are allowed to be friends with guys. I'm a lady. Chill out," she tweeted after taking down the photo.
See, she's just standing up for a friend.
