Pop music sensation Ariana Grande has become a fierce defender of the LGBT community after her gay brother Frankie came under attack on Instagram as a star of the CBS reality show Big Brother.
For her latest album, due August 25, the 21-year-old former Nickelodeon TV star will thrill the kiddies with a gay done-you-wrong song. "There is a song called 'Break Your Heart Right Back' which is about a boy that cheats on a girl with another boy," she told UK's Metro.
"It’s one of my favorites on the album and it’s really funny because I believe it has happened to me. I’m not 100 percent positive but I’m 99.9 per cent positive....I would rather he cheats on me with a guy than with a girl any day! If I found out my boyfriend was gay, I would be like 'OK!' I’d be so relieved."
The track sample's Diana Ross' classic "I'm Coming Out," according to the UK's Attitude. Grande told the publication the song's concept was "very fun."
“Well, originally it was going to be about a boy who cheats with a girl," she explained, "but then I was like, ‘No, I want it to be about a boy who cheats on a girl with another boy.'"
PS: Amy Zimmerman at The Daily Beast loves Grande’s new video for the song “Break Free” as a “gay-friendly intergalactic dance party.”
Grande manages to shoot her foes to smithereens. Lucky for us, this leaves her with some free time to do cool, fun things like slowly strip while floating in an anti-gravity chamber. If you liked Ariana’s white corset ensemble (aka “daywear”), you’ll love her metallic bra and space diaper. At this point, we also get to see Grande shoot a big transformer-type fellow with rockets that blast out of her breasts...
There are leather jogging pants, tin foil dresses, and even a weird little space creature that hangs out by the Beats by Dr. Dre speaker system. There’s also two guys kissing, which finally answers the eternal question of just how cool is Ariana Grande?
Apparently she’s cool enough to casually feature gay action in a mainstream music video, but not cool enough to resist super blatant and obnoxious product placement.
