Question: What is more cringe-inducing than a celebrity funeral? Answer: Two back-to-back celebrity funerals. The ghoulish twin spectacles last week memorializing Aretha Franklin and John McCain brought out the worst in family, friends and frenemies. No matter your partisan affiliation, these vulgar exercises in self-indulgence should serve as object lessons on how not to depart with dignity.
As Fox and Friends Saturday commented on the absence of media attention to National of Islam Leader Louis Farrakhan at Aretha Franklin's funeral, the other networks ignored Farrakhan, but CBS and NBC did find time to highlight complaints about one of the pastors putting his arm around singer Ariana Grande on stage and making a joke about her name.
Sex proves God Is a Woman, Ariana Grande and Elle suggest of her upcoming single. Not intelligence, talent, strength, or even love. Nope. It’s sex that empowers women. On Wednesday, Elle magazine announced its August cover star: singer Ariana Grande. Inside, deputy editor Katie Connor spoke with Grande on everything from politics to her upcoming single, God Is a Woman – which is, Connor revealed, about sex.
No siempre pueden ser identificados los sesgos de una organización mediática basado solamente en lo que reportan, Como comprueba esta nota, lo que un medio puede ser igual o más importante.

Ariana Grande’s new hit “Side to Side” may be set in a spinning studio, but working out was just a sly cover for the real subject of the video: having so much sex that you can’t walk afterward.
Initially, reviewers and fans didn’t pay much attention to the lyrics, as they were easy to miss amidst the catchy beat and frenetic activity. Reflecting on the music video, which portrays Grande as a sort of dolled-up spin instructor Elle writer Alyssa Bailey wondered if the video were “a deeper commentary on the ridiculous pressure women face to always. look. good. even when they're at a hellish spin class.”
New York Times music writer Jon Caramanica wrote about former Nickelodeon TV star Ariana Grande’s second album last Sunday with the simply inaccurate headline “Staying Safe, Exploring Sassy.” It’s a misleading headline, because Grande is beginning to walk the path to what might be called “the full Xxxtina,” when Christina Aguilera felt the need to “grow up” and sing very overt sexual songs.
Caramanica just grew silly by arguing Grande’s first album last year was some sort of throwback to Fifties “Puritanism,” as if she was singing Annette Funicello songs about pineapple princesses (okay, that was early Sixties):
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.
