Even though she’s preparing for a world tour, uncoupling from Pete Davidson, shooting a music video for her first no. 1 song, and allegedly working on a new album even though she dropped one this year, Ariana Grande had the time, big dick energy, and strength to take Piers Morgan to task about his views on how female performers should or shouldn’t behave.
On Tuesday (November 20), Morgan tweeted that U.K. girl group Little Mix copied a look from the Dixie Chicks.

Grande’s mother Joan, who also had time and BDE, took to Twitter to defend the group.
Honestly what is wrong with you @piersmorgan ? Didn’t your mother ever teach you, if you have nothing nice to say, don’t say it! You came for @TheEllenShow yesterday which was disgraceful, she is an angel. @LittleMix today, did you ever hear of paying homage? And..well never mind https://t.co/5WBOlL8t6O

Morgan then brought Grande into the drama by recommending Little Mix “use their talent to sell records rather than their nudity. As your own daughter [Ariana Grande] does,” in his reply to mother Grande.
The pop star promptly clapped back with the swiftness of Taylor to back up her mom, stan for Little Mix, and inform Morgan that women can be both talented and use their sexuality.
“I use my talent and my sexuality all the time because I choose to,” Grande said. “Women can be sexual and talented. Naked and dignified. It’s our choice…We will keep fighting [until] people understand. I say this [with] all due respect but thank u, next.”
She then continued and delivered the sickest burn, “Also @piersmorgan, I look forward to the day you realize there are other ways to go about making yourself relevant than to criticize young, beautiful, successful women for everything they do. I think that’ll be a beautiful thing for you and your career or what’s left of it.”
