‘If you like women, why didn’t you just say so?’ Queer Twitter’s reactions to Ariana Grande not-coming-out

Ariana Grande just dropped a new track with fellow singer Victoria Monét and fans believe she might have low-key come out as bisexual.

In Monopoly, Grande sings about liking women and men.

“I like women and men (Yeah) / Work so fuckin’ much, need a twinny, twin, twin,” the Thank U, Next singer says together with Monét, who came out as queer last fall.

The new track follows Ariana’s Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored track, whose final queer twist left fans hoping that the singer might identify as something other than straight.

However, those who were waiting for an official announcement have been disappointed.

As fans were going wild at the idea Ariana might actually be bisexual, the singer felt the need to clarify her position about coming out.

‘ariana ain’t gotta label herself, but she said what she said,’ a fan wrote.

‘i haven’t before and still don’t feel the need to now,’ Ariana replied, ‘which is okay’.

Her diplomatic yet enigmatic statement sparked a debate online.

Ariana stans believe she actually came out as bi. On the other hand, her detractors think the song is a response to the criticism received for headlining Manchester Pride.

Others don’t need Ariana’s coming out to be factual to use it to spread their own pride.

Others addressed the Manchester Pride controversy, pointing out that Ariana’s coming out would put an end to the debate about whether straight performers should be allowed at Pride.

Other commentators, however, weren’t as lenient with Grande regarding Pride.
